Getting MIDI into my PC...

Post by wuff_miggler » Tue Jun 30, 2020 8:24 pm

OK wigglers,

I recently bought a used Kurzweil ribbon controller - and need to get it into my PC either via USB or PCI.

Option A
----------
get a midi controller with USB out...and plug the midi outs of the kurzweil into the controller.
i dont mind this - but it seems midi controllers are getting a bit mickey mouse...(shitty touch, or meh features??, or more commonly no midi inputs at all)

Option B (what i dont know much about but am very interested in)
------

Using a PCI/PCIe solution to get midi in...is this even a thing in 2020??

OPTION C
------------
Multiple midi in and out rack solutions with USB output. Liek Motu Midi Express etc.
Are there any good pro solutions?

My main thing is getting TIGHT input...if i lay down a good groove - i'd like it to sound the same on playbackin my DAW.
