Funny, the game title starts with a space char, which I've removed now.

Anyway, how did it work for you?

(I'm not sure if the question was for me)

anyway, No, I don't use this program to connect my instruments,
I only use this to write down my ideas,
but yes I have my Fender Guitar and my Keyboard (Korg) connected to my Laptop,
but I use other programs for that.

I recently got an iMac G3 and I wanted to be able to connect it to my Yamaha Keyboard, and I knew that this freeware had been around before, although now it has been deleted from the site.

Thankfully, I managed to find a site that had mirrored it and the Windows version. When it asks for a registration code, just hit later and it won't make a difference. But, it won't connect to my keyboard (the driver works though). Sad

Anyway, how did it work for you?

Nice! I need something to write my Music "on-the-run"
I 've always done it "the ol' school style" (pencil and Paper)
but I need to print a nice hard copy quick 'cuz if I get distracted, some ideas get lost,
'hopefully this one works.
