I'm installing BIAB on a spare computer that I got from a friend. When I get to the "MIDI Driver Setup" screen, under "MIDI Input Driver" it states this: No MIDI sound input. Apparently this computer doesn't have a MIDI interface. How can I install one? Thanks for any help...Bob

If there is a soundcard in one of the slots, you may just have to download a midi driver. There is an adapter you can get that plugs into the game port or joy stick port, that has a pigtail for two midi cables one in and one out.

without knowing more about the computer, that's about all I can tell you.

I might be a beginner now, but someday I'm gonna steel the show.

Thanks Robert. Apparently the Windows 2000 Professional program has what I need as far as MIDI is concerned. At this point everything appears to be working OK...Bob
