grade school music - cornet (trumpet)
skipped junior high / middle school
high school - baritone/euphonium
college - I was a music major for a couple of years... before MIDI...
then MIDI, and the computer lover (not so much now) I was I had to have it
MIDI was hard enough in Windows
stuff either was too expensive
or not for the win version I had
last MIDI thing I tried in WinXP
needed online registration which was no longer possible
now after the death of WinXP & the demise of my laptop
here I am in Linux Land hunting for MIDI
I thought I had some old round MIDI cables...
I do have the old MIDI to USB for older stuff
and my new Casio Kayboard is all USB
I bet I will have issues with my Casio Keyboard
Casio worships MICRO$OFT like the rest of the wurld
I have already had issues with mint's audio...
If things keep going the way they are Linux will be just as bad as Windows.

much MIDI in Linux is terminal... why the gui then? it's like Linux Lovers hate gui's I don't know... I do a lot more in a terminal than I did in windows a linux terminal is way more powerful than a windows/dos command line but for many things if there is a gui, I hit that first (doconf editor for one) I have yet to investigate MIDI for the terminal environment I like seeing my music!

jack & pulseaudio (mint) do not work well together ardour sound & MIDI looks promising audacity sound only, no MIDI I have installed but have not used it yet musescore installed but have not done much doesn't look very MIDI friendly qtractor similar to rosegarden jack & issues with pulseaudio rosegarden repository version is old new version has to be source downloaded & compiled system configuration dependent
