    How do I get 2 keyboards in separated MIDI inputs, with each 16?
    I like to have two times 16 channels with 16 tracks each. So far I
    have 32 channels with a MERGE of the 2 keyboard inputs in 2*16 tracks.
    Now the question is if it's possible to split not only the channels
    but also the inputs? I use Cakewalk, Home Studio 2002.

    How have you set the system up to get what you already have? Do you
    have two MIDI interfaces?

    Cakewalk is weak in this area. It merges input ports and selecting two
    input ports simply allows more Channels, which is what you appear to
    have. So you can't have true independence at play-record time, only at
    playback.

    Get MIDI Ox. It's free for non-commercial users. It allows routing of
    stuff all over the place. You can send in and out, with Ports and
    Channels sent as wanted. It gets a bit messy, because you have to use
    MidiOx to route to CW for recording, and also to the various other
    ports for playing. I wish CW would look at the inclusion of MIDI Ox
    engine into their programme. The author works (worked at least) for
    CW!
