I own Roland UM-4 that was a good MIDI interface but it's not working with 64-bit windows or similar so I've bought a cheap 1-channel plexgear MIDI interface which is not enough when I now also own the Cyclone Analogic TT303, I want at least 2 channels MIDI and preferrably 3 or 4 channels like the UM 4 has but it's incompatible with 64-bit os.
Can you tell me what I could use to buy and whether I also need a sound card? My gear is
Roland TR909 Cyclone TT303 Mackie ProFX8 Graphite 49 MIDI controller Roland Juno 60 Cubase + Reason + FL + WIndows 7
I looked at a midisport 4-channel interface for abt USD 120 that seemed good. I also bought a second 1-channel plexgear interface to quickly get the connection I need from the local radio shack. Then I also might get a better soundcard since the soundcard I own today is cheap and bad - the Sony Vaio internal soundcard and a plexgear external usb soundcard. I have put my money in the instruments (Roland TR 909, Cyclone TT303, Roland Juno 60) and I will now wire everything so that we can make techno.
