My son has a lower end Yahmaha keyboard and he has been writing his own music, etc. I am going to purchase the M-Audio Midiman 1x1 that will allow him to run Midi In/Out cables to it and then connect via USB.

I am totally out of my league when it comes to what would be a good and decent Music Recording Software for his PC. Since he is just starting out and the equipoment though servicible isn't top notch and so I really have no need to break the bank.

Suggestions please because there are tons of options but in my research many of the offerings are buggy or the drivers and support are terrible and/or non-existent.

Thanks ahead of time.

Two low-cost options are Reaper, which is small, free to try out and not expensive to buy, or if you find a copy of the British Computer Music magazine, they have a complete Digital Audio suite that is free on each cover disk.

Platypus, thanks for the reply and advice. Reaper seems a real possibility. I just want something reliable because this is a brand new area of using a software I nor he has any experience whatsoever. Thanks again.
