    Hi M8 any version from 8 upwards seems to offer everything you need I use sonar myself and find it nicely laid out and easy to understand.

    Cakewalk Home Studio XL 2002 is what I'm using right now. It's probably more of a program than you need for basic midi editing. But it is very affordable and easy to use.

    I have installed CW2002 but am having trouble getting everything to work. Don't know yet if it is my computer or the product at fault.
    Controls seem easy to operate though.

    Cakewalk 9.0 Pro Audio works fine. The later versions of Cakewalk were committed more to the audio, and it seemed they took some features away from the midi side. I just got Sonar, and at first, it seems very confusing. None of it matters, however, if your hardware isnt properly installed !

    I agree... Pro audio 9.0 is more than effective for my needs.

    Oooh... I use Cakewalk 6. Does every thing I want from it. Sadly, it's no longer in the stores.

    I move from Cakewalk 6 to Cakewalk 2000, which is basically the same, but this last version is easier to use. I cannot say much more because I've using these both softwares just for 2 days. :p

    I agree with techren...it's all you need.

    I'm running Cakewalk 8. Some great new advanced features on it, but editing midi has become a lot more complex and time consuming.
