Ok, newbie on the vb.net forums...

I wanted to know if it's possible to use MIDI in VB.NET... not like playing MIDI files, but using a MIDI control device such as a keyboard.

Let me back up for a second. I want to write a similar program to Hauptwerk, a MIDI virtual organ.

http://www.hauptwerk.co.uk/

Basically, you buy Hauptwerk, plug two or three midi keyboards into your computer, set up all the sound cards, run the software, and play the "organ" on your computer.

I'd like to do a similar thing, and offer it as freeware. However, I have no idea how to work with a MIDI device, or if it's even possible. I know it was possible with VB6, but is it with VB.NET?

Ahhhh!
