Question Good MIDI software?


Hi,

I've had Fedora installed on my laptop for a few months now and am using it for e-mail, admin stuff etc. I'm loving it. If I install it on my desktop the only thing I'd miss from Windows is my MIDI Synth (Cubase). Is there anything even remotely like that on Linux for Gnome? I've had a look around couldn't find much in the way of detailed info or reviews from real users! Any ideas would be really welcome.

Cheers,

Jamie

I know I posted it in the suse forum for suse users... but c'mon now. I just posted not half an hour ago a thread entitled
"For Those Who Want Their Midi Back"

With a couple programs to use!

Also, see my webpage,

and scroll down to

Apologies Caeda - I didn't see your post. However it seemed to be more about playing MIDI files than creating them? I'm looking for a music making package like Cubase, or maybe I missed your point!

Sheng-Chieh, thanks - you links were really useful. It seems there is a lot more software out there than I thought. Does anyone have any recommendations, or personal favourites?

Cheers,

Jamie.
