MIDI - Mac/Abelton/Kaoss to PC - HELP!?!

Postby JJJ » Fri Mar 09, 2007 9:53 pm

What is the simplist and or most efficient way to get a MIDI to a PC?

I'm working with a Live PA dude: MacBook Pro - 10.whatever - Abelton - Kaoss Pad.

Me: - ArKaos 3.6 and a PC.

I currently use an audio input from the mixer but wish to unlock the power of MIDI.

Am considering a MIDI over LAN program but I'm not sure if it's necessary.

Do I just need a MIDI Splitter and USB adapter, then pipe into my PC?

I don't mind spending money on gear - however I do mind spending cash when there is an adequate solution using existing gear and perhaps a few adapters or something.


ArKaos lover/MIDI newbie.

Simplest, most trouble-free way is over MIDI through standard MIDI interfaces.

You CAN do it across a network connection, but in my experience it's more trouble than it's worth.
