    Well the Midi is working well enough for me. Sometimes while recording we just add a drum track to keep us in time.

    After a lot of searching on the Internet this is what I did

    Go to Terminal, type
    qsynth

    add soundfonts by clicking on SETUP in qsynth

    I loaded the Soundfonts that I had from an old SoundBlaster Live CD.

    Start Claudia to see all the connections

    Start Rosegarden and open an Example Rosegarden file with MIDI

    I had to make one small connection in Claudia to connect the MIDI from Qsynth to Rosegarden. All the other connections shown below were made automatically by starting the respective software programs, (QSynth and Rosegarden).

    It works for me and I don't have to buy a new version of Windows to record on this old laptop. I am not a Windows hater by any means, this just worked out for me. I will have to try out the included video stuff also.

    Had to do a quick recording last night for my wife, we ended up recording to our old Tascam 4 track cassette recorder, then mixing down to Audacity in Windows. I really have to try out the Linux system soon.

    Thanks, I will give that a shot next. I have a cardbus Indigo io sound card that should be better than the onboard sound card and this version of Linux recognizes it without extra shenanigans.
