    Nothing worthwhile in this world is 'easy'. You have to work at it.

    You need a midi sequencer (search the net, there are quite a few about, but be prepared to pay money for a good one) and somemeans of getting midi into it - usually, but not exclusively, a keyboard instrument.

    A good start is Anvil Studio (http://www.anvilstudio.com/), but like Graeme stated, it takes a lot of practice and time to produce something considered excellent.

    If those 'other formats' have been ausio based, you're going to find midi a little trickier when you start using it.

    Expression is one of the harder things to include in midi - and most people tend to over-quantise. Lack of expression and over-quantising combine to make the music very 'mechanical' in nature. This is fine, if that's what you want, but if you are trying to emulate 'real' instruments and performances, this is one area you will have to be prepared to spend a bit of time working on.
