    I use ancient cakewalk to create midis cause its not bogged down with audio features and is bare bones for midis only its easier that way when ur just using sound modules

    Every system is different. "Easier" depends on what you are doing. Remember, MIDI is only note on info the hard part is laying down the tracks. That part is all talent and whatever controllers you are using. Also your MIDI file will only sound as good as the quality of your sound source(module) The same file played on a Roland mt32 or old sound blaster will sound totally different when played back on a, let's say...... Yamaha psr 740 with xg voices.Drum tracks are hardest if you tap them in on the piano keyboard to get a track that sounds like a real drummer I use a MIDI arranger to lay down a basic beat. Then i record the chord patterns wile muting the drums with the arranger then i rerecord the drums hitting the fill button at the spots where i "feel" the drum fills. A ggod arranger will make this all possible. I also blend a warm analog tape machine with MIDI modules using SMPTE to get a marriage of analog and digital mixing direct to a +4 db stand alone cd burner. So when you ask what is "easier" the answer is very dependant on what you want to do and how good you are at getting the MIDI "paint" on the "digital" canvas. I guess that's why they call them recording "artists

    Good Luck

    How do you use CE to create midi's? It knows nothing about midi, it's an audio editor.

    ...and to answer the original question, I use Cakewalk Pro v9.03.

    ... and to answer the other question about mp3 or wav to midi - forget it!
