I use MIDI for editing & arranging music (in Windows, I would probably
use Cakewalk for this), before making a score, or running it through an
external synth & recording it. I almost always edit midi files from the
music notation, apart from basic stuff like combining tracks.
The other main use I have for MIDI, is auditioning scores I have
prepared in a score-writing package, as part of the proof-reading
process (I use Mozart in Windows).
In general, I just use the sounds on the soundcard when auditioning MIDI
I'm not using ALSA at present, although it is on the Debian CDs I have.
Apart from the fact that it is to do with sound, I know little else
I am currently using the driver I installed during the Debian
installation process. If it isn't ALSA, then I assume it to be OSS/Free
Is this enough information?
| "Get MIDI working" is a bit too general. What exactly do you want to
| you have external Midi hardware that you want to use via the computer?
| you just need midi-in or midi-in and out? Do you want to use the synth
| your soundcard? All these are very different problems. Also we'd need
| know, what sound drivers you use: ALSA or the OSS/Free kernel driver?
