: : 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.

Thanks for the response Les,
...but that's where I got stumped. I'm wondering if I have some port conflicts, so I'm going back in.
Once again I really appreciate the help, and if you've got any other ideas they are always welcome.
