Hi everyone!

I'd like to know if there is a way to play and record MIDI data using the parallel (LPT1) or serial (COMx) ports, without any soundcard.

I have an old Satellite portable computer without a sound card and I'd love to take it on the road to trigger my keyboard with MIDI, but I don't want to buy a sound card for this thrash can I got for free.

Please help! :-)
