Hi i have a keyboard that i got a midi to usb cable for and when i was googling sometime ago i did find a windows piece of software that said it worked with this but can't seem to find it now. Not sure what part of the forum i should be posting this so excuse me if i got it wrong. I am investigating if this will work with my linux box as well but would be nice to have both options :0)

No audacity records audio from a mic but doesn't from instruments as far as i know but i think there is something that is like a sequencer if thats the right term?

There's a freeware program called Anvil Studio http://www.anvilstudio.com/ which should do what you want. It also provides links to vst plugins which is what some of the major software synth packages like SONAR use. Also, if you know the manufacturer of your MIDI adapter then you could check their website to see if they have any free software downloads.

Oh that looks interesting thanks! Not a name i am familiar with. Yes synthesizer is what i was thinking of not sequencer :0) I got the cable from someone on ebay and never saw that there was software. I am sure it said that it just worked with windows and mac from memory
