    usualy they are not free

    hi dude!

    Usualy good MIDI software is not free or is trial. So If you are able to pay - I sugest Cakewalk. It has all what you need and especialy good thing is tuner what I need cos I play guitar. So I make background (rythm, key, bass) un cakewaol and play it out trough mixing pult where I attach my guitar and in same time ready mix I record on the same computer. Ore you can try to get cracked wersions on your own risk.

    I hope you will get good software!

    in the magazine "Computer Music", they have included their very own midi/audio sequencer...it includes a full sampler, drum sampler, soft synths, audio editor...it rocks...[although i still havent quite got around the less-than-user friendly gui..lol]...and it is FREE...[well, once you buy the mag.]

    its a great mag, although I don't like the sequencer, well it crashed within minutes so maybe i didn't give it a proper chance.

    in reference to Cakewalk you might consider Sonar (there lastest flagship sequencer) or the cheaper version (but just as good for midi) Plasma.

    Hope this helps.

    i agree. Cakewalk Home Studio 2000 is the best midi creation program (although, music tecahers seem to find SIbelious 2 better. It depends what you creating)

    Cakewalk is certainly much cheaper than Sibelious or Cubase 5VST. It is good. Haven't tried a recent version though as have gone over to Cubase.

    I suggest cakewalk.... I've used it a lot and althogh it takes a little while to get you head around it is complex enough to do more difficult stuff.

    yeah we use cubase in school, but i've tried cakewalk, along time back, 6.0 i think, dated now, i tried connecting my keyboard to that, and it found jack all :-S..... No idea wut programs to use now.... Anvil Studio sucks, don't use that lol!......

    Any good suggestions, that are free?

    For really off the wall midi sequencing, but a lot to study, there is a package called KeyKit, freeware, it comes packed with algorithmic based notes generators. But it takes a while to get a handle of the whole thing. You can eventually program your own tools using the provided Python library...

    I use cubase for Virtual instruments, and KeyKit for Experiments...

    Not a Nerd....:cool:

    Cakewalk is easy to use. It's pretty user friendly and it shouldn't take very long to get a go of it if you're just using it for midi.

    How much is Cakewalk?

    You might find PowerTrax to be a bit cheaper at $49.

    I love it. If you're interested, go to the website and download the tutorial vid clips to see what it can do.

    This is true. Cakewalk guitar studio is on Kazaa Lite.
