    At my son's school, we have a Kurzweil Mark 10 (yes, I know it is a
    dinosaur) and the floppy is getting balky.

    If we get a cheap USB to MIDI cable, can we record out performances to
    a PC and then load them back in as neeeded?

    There seems to be a lot of noise about General MIDI vs. the Kurzweil
    format, and I can't quite sort it out.

    Minimally, we want save out and play back. That is the main need. We
    have Mac and PC laptops sitting around that we can use.

    Ideally, we could edit files we record, or load in other MIDI
    (General?) files from other sources.

    We'd also like to be able to take the current pile of floppies and
    catalog them on to a hard drive and push them in the MIDI port with a
    click rather than trying to find the floppy.

    The Piano is frequently used for music during the kids drama
    performances and we'd love to have the ability to quickly load in
    sequences that had been recorded by a skilled piano player earlier
    (which we currently do with floppies)

    Am I dreaming? How much of this is possible? What software do we

    I see the $40 M-Audio USB to MIDI cable, can we use that?

    I have a Mark 10 Kurzweil and it works with the
    M-Audio UNO midisport. Band in a box 2006 will
    record what is played on the Kurzweil but for some reason
    won't play what is stored on the computer on the Kurzweil.
    However I downloaded a midifile off of the internet and
    when I play that using the built in midi player
    for Windows 2000 SP4 the Kurzweil plays the file okay.
    Not sure how much this helps though.
