    I have a keyboard (musical instrument) and I have just recently hooked up a MIDI cable with it going out from keyboard in(to) computer, and I need a good program I can download for free so that I may hear the notes from my keyboard on my computer speakers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can use Finale too, but it sucks serious butt.

    I have Audacity, but I can't seem to figure that out... Rather then crappy ones, anyone have any names of ANY ones, that are at least decent?

    I'm not very sure but I think Anvil Studio might do the job

    http://www.download.com/Anvil-Studio/3000-...tml?tag=lst-0-1

    Anvil Studio is a program for multitrack recording, composing, and editing of music using digital audio, MIDI, and sampled percussion sounds. Audio effects include delay, pitch change, volume change, filtering, and reverse. Anvil Studio is designed for people who want to perform music with MIDI equipment, or record and edit music with MIDI and audio equipment or with a computer and sound card.

    This free version allows you to record and edit a single stereo or mono one-minute audio track, and create unlimited MIDI tracks. Optional accessories allow you to record and mix up to eight stereo/mono audio tracks, and more. Anvil Studio now provides a grid to the staff editor, an on-screen guitar fretboard or piano input, support for nested loops in rhythm and piano roll editors, and native EQ.

    My Finale PrintMusic! 2002 recommends one called FreeMIDI. Remember, Google is your friend...

    Thanks for the help, guys! I did note one problem was that I apparently connected it to my joystick in port on the computer :sweatdrop: I'm still digging around for a place to stick it in

    Also, if you have two MIDI cables (OUT & IN) you'll just be needing the Midi OUT I think, so don't bother looking for more ports for the MIDI IN.

    Interesting, I hooked it up to the joystick port, and yet it said it wasn't connected. I'll try other programs, I guess :/

    Anvil Studio works really well. I use it.
