Hi Everyone, Apologies if this is the wrong forum but I have never posted in this group before so humble apologies if I'm in the wrong place. I have a mate who wants to connect his electronic keyboard (which he is going to buy) to his computer. He wants to play the keyboard and watch the note be scored (hope I have the right term there) on his computer. That's his aim. So my questions are: 1. What type of electronic keyboard would you recommend? 2. On the shareware/freeware/GPL side what software would you recommend for this functionality i.e electronic keyboard -> mide format -> actual musical score I would greatly appreciate any comments/views/suggestions that you would like to share... Thanks in advance, Al The Newbie.
