    I'd like to try to compose some new midis, but I don't know what program I can use. Can you suggest me a good (and easy)program?

    I am only familiar with Cubase and Cakewalk, though there seem to be some good free midi composers out on the web, I think there is one at AnvilStudios. There are links and posts elsewhere in these forums.

    If u wanna compose. You should do it by hearing it. If you wanna sequence then you need cakewalk or cubase.

    I use cakewalk 9 which is a pretty user friendly program to me for a beginner. You'll need to have a decent sound card for your computer to get a good sound though.

    Don't forget, you need a MIDI keyboard first!:p

    I use Finale Allegro, and it works great, plus I didn't have to buy the full version of Finale which is pretty much overkill for what I do. I also have Cakewalk, but don't use it to create midi files because it doesn't have a comprehensive note entry feature, it's more point-and-click. I could use my keyboard, but who wants to be that accurate?

    i'm busy using the full version of finale, but for some reason it stopped with exporting and saving midi files.
    can anyone help me out with that?

    I heard PowerKaraoke was a great tool to use.

    Anvil Studios

    Yeah. Anvil Studios is nice. I'm afraid I'm a cheapscape, so I only use shareware/freeware/Demos. Anvil Studio is all I ever use. It has a friendly GUI and exports and imports Midis. The downside is that you can't print Midi's directly from Anvil Studio without buying the plugin.
