I want to use MIDI from cubase to control my external synths and sampler. As my m audio delta 44 has no MIDI ports, can i use it in harmony with another card which has MIDI ports? Would this work effectively/easily in cubase ie. can i record and sequence vsts and external MIDI devices at the same time? Does anyone have any suggestions as to which card to go for or does anyone have a similar, successful set-up? Cheers.

You don't really want another "card" - instead you should probably go for a USB solution - something like an M-Audio MidiSport 2x2 (which gives you 2 midi ports) would be a good choice - or a 4x4 if you need more connectivity...

M-Audio MidiSPORT 2x2 :: service.bfast.com/bfast/c...mp;bfmtype=gear :: $70

M-Audio MidiSPORT 4x4 :: service.bfast.com/bfast/c...mp;bfmtype=gear :: $150

cheers 4 that mate, Im sorry if this sounds completely stupid but would i need to connect the USB from a midisport to the omni i/o upgrade (which i dont own yet!) or is it done another way?

Or just hook it up to your PC's USB port.

daft, you can use the midi-sport along with your delta. they are two seperate devices, and will not conflict with each other.

i second the Midisport 2x2. i just plug the 2x2 into my USB port and my drum machine into the 2x2 and it's Cakewalk from there, pun intended. All of my M-Audio gears is great. Very happy with their stuff.
