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!
