Programs like Cakewalk will not work for me, as they upset the default settings of soundfonts, MIDI ports etc, for my PC Organ program.   All I want is to record the incoming MIDI information from my organ = console, and then be able to play it into Building Blocks, which handles the soundfonts, MIDI output channels and patches etc.   I would also consider a stand-alone MIDI sequencer, Does anyone know about =   these? I beleive they were popular once, but have given way to software sequencers like Cakewalk etc.   Thanks,   Mick Berg.

There are cables and 2x2 in out and through boxes that need to be installed correctly. It stores playing information = on 3 1/2" 1.44 floppies formatted for the PC. Sorry Mac users! Most organ = applications use PC formatting. You need to take the song_1 file and rename the extension = to one acceptable to cakewalk. Find their website and they'll give you = instructions on what to do. The organ has to have a midi installed. The ext. is: .mid   Sincerely,   Ron Severin
