: I'm an idiot and looking for help. I have an Alesis QS 6.1 and trying to connect to Pent 133, Win 95, Cakewalk pro audio. My two serial ports are in use and I want to know if I can use the MPU-401 port on the soundcard for MIDI connection.The keyboard is set to GM MULTI / Gen MIDI and it's enabled. Been trying to make it work for a while.... any help is appreciated.

You need a Soundcard MIDI Adapter Cable (if you don't have one, click on the MIDI-Store banner on the left).
Connect one end of the cable to your sound card game port, and the other to your QS MIDI IN and OUT ports.
Check your Windows Control Panel / Multimedia Settings, see if SB MIDI is installed.
Select SB MIDI (or MPU-401) in Cakewalk MIDI I/O settings, and it should work.
