    I'm using a Yamaha PSR-740..

    I've got two of them actually. I'm ambidextrous. lol

    I've got a old Kawai keyboard also... It was good when I bought it, but now???

    Actually, I'm about as skilful on the music keyboard as chimpanzee, but give me a pc keyboard and no problem...

    I've been using a Korg X3 for several years now and it works well, but it's very limited in memory. I can load about 5 to 6 songs, depending how complete they are. That's why I now use Cakewalk as the sequencer and the Korg as the sound module.

    I use cubase vst for sequencing, only because I'm used to it, but logic is getting a really good rap for midi, i use it for recording audio

    Cakewalk Pro is the only way to go for me... luckily it's also compatible with Cool Edit Pro when i'm using audio tracks as well

    I make the sequence using Cakewalk on PC, then save it to floppy for use on my Roland Soundbrush. The soundbrush is great because it acts just like a CD player. I use cakewalk because it's just what i've always used. Cubase was too finicky.

    I'm using Cakewalk V9.

    I tried other software but found cakewalk the easiest to use.

    Having said that, I tried using the CAL programming language to do some MIDI editting and had a lot of problems. One problem was that I had some MIDI files with gaps of 4 or 5 measures at the start. No need for that, so I wrote a CAL program to subtract a few measures from all the times. Sometimes it works and sometimes, it changes all the time events for the first half of the song, then leaves the remainder alone, which effectively adds a gap to the middle of the song. Weird!!!

    Anyway, other than that, Cakewalk is good.

    I have a Trinity as well. It is okay, especially if you just want to lug one piece. Very limited editing, especially when it comes to tweaking velocity. Thankfully, it has a comprehensive event editor.

    My gigging set up is two Roland MC50s. (Load one while the other plays)

    I like Cakewalk products, but i find i'm so accustomed to the MC50 interface that i will usually choose it for creating sequences

    For software sequencing, I use Cakewalk. It's very powerful and easy to use. I've been using cakewalk for 5 years now (since v4.5).
