  1. So, my second post after helping someone out in my first post! I'm Laurens, 19 years old, and I live in Holland. I just finished college with final exams last year (on the highest level possible here), and will be doing the education "Composition And Music Technology" on the High School of Arts Utrecht, in Hilversum. I've been playing piano for 10 years now, also play a bit guitar and I'm a house DJ and producer. The genres I like are very diverse; from rock to classical, movie/game soundtracks, electronical like house (more the progressive side of house though) and pop and jazz. Pop artists/bands I like at the moment: Jason Mraz, Snow Patrol, OneRepublic. My favorite filmcomposer is Hans Zimmer. What my goal is in the musicworld: no idea, I really like the idea of producing for artists, scoring for films and things like that. So that's why I'm starting with this education in September What can I tell more... I've done arrangements for Pirates of the Caribbean 1 and 2, from the piano arrangement to an orchestral piece, without using the original published orchestral score, and am also busy with creating an orchestral piece from a solo piano piece. Hardware/software: I just got a Macbook Pro 15" 2,66 Ghz with Logic Studio, completely new to the Apple stuff, but it feels and works very good. Before that I worked (and still work for now) with Reason and Sibelius for producing and scoring/arranging/writing. What I'm gonna do here: hope to contribute with some awesome remixes!
  2. This is because your MIDI input is already in use in Cakewalk. Disable it in Cakewalk, re-enable it in Finale and you're good to go to use it in Finale. Problem is you won't be able to use it in Cakewalk now. However, there is a program around that creates 8 virtual MIDI in and outputs, and in that program you can set it up that your MIDI input will be duplicated in one of those virtual channels. Too bad I don't know the name anymore, I'll search it for you. edit: you say the MIDI input works in other programs next to Cakewalk though? Strange. Although I have the same on my Windows desktop computer when I have Reason and Sibelius open. The MIDI input will only work in the first opened application. edit 2: a short Google search gave me the program I was looking for: MidiYoke. You can download it on
