    I just stumbled across this place while searching for information to get back into midi. I'm an amateur and used to sequence and notate a lot of the piano stuff I composed using a Turtle Beach Pinnacle sound card and the "free" software that came with it. I kind of got away from it and would now like to get back into it. I just got a Roland drum pad so would like to get my computer midi-ready. The Pinnacle card is ISA so I'm looking for a new card and some freeware software to play with. Initially, that's what I hope to learn more about here. That and how to use my drum pad in conjunction with my piano!

    I'm new to this too. I've been using Print Music (a watered down version of Finale) to try to write stuff, but I don't have a midi keyboard or anything right now. I'm wondering what sort of equipment do people recommend?

    if by music you mean learning the notes.....then that can be done online.......otherwise music is mostly a thing that you teach yourself.....you learn to feel the beats........ lol ... that sounds corny ...... but it is true..... you don't need to learn notes if you want to make a midi .... if you want midi making software e-mail me and i can get you a freeware program called WillowPond Presto Midi Maker..... it's very easy to use ... and you don't need to learn how to read notes.....

    you need to learn how to play instruments, but cant do everything that way, music has to be ur own creativity i think, only so much u can learn
