Midi dilemma...

    I've just purchased a Midi keyboard as I want to get into music production
    and as I have an Audigy 2 (Value) there's no Midi port on board. I've also
    heard of oddities with MIDI to USB converters!

    If I stick in my old PCI 128, can I use the Midi port on that, but still use
    the higher quality midi set of the Audigy?

    There should be an extension available which adds the MIDI ports to
    this card (depends on the exact card version, though).
    Yes, should work if properly installed. Note that the adapter for the
    15pin MIDI/Joystick-connector on the PCI128 will work with the PCI128
    card - it is quite common for adapters made for other cards not to
    work with a soundblaster one.

    My Audigy 2 ZS has a Joystick port that also double as a MIDI Port..

    Also a Firm here has a Kitset to make a MIDI breakout box, I made up one for a
    Friend that uses a Audigy 1..

    This is strange, as example, M-Audio MidiSport are very good!

    The Joystick Connector is the MIDI Port, a firm here use to make a Very cheap
    kit for a MIDI break out box, that just plugged into the Joystick port and
    gave one Midi in and 2 out...

    A Pro muso is using this one I made up for him..

    Note that old-style DIN keyboard connectors are identical to MIDI.
    You can make a MIDI adaptor by snipping the cable from a junk
    keyboard and wiring it to a 15-pin joystick port connector.
