How to start using a midi controller - info request.


I bought a midi controller mini keyboard, (AKAI LPK25), but as yet, haven't got around to using it, so I'm looking for info on which are the best programs to use, & how to go about setting it all up.

Any & all info welcome, as it may also help someone else.

You basically need to install a midi sequencer or synthesizer and then connect the midi device to it. Here's an in-depth look: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/USB_MIDI_keyboards
