I've tried looking through the Java Sound API, and I'm lost. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a Korg Kaossilator Pro, which uses extended cc codes instead of pure MIDI. What I want to do is connect a MIDI keyboard and the K-Pro to my laptop via the USB ports, and use Java to talk between them.

What I need is:
How to detect external MIDI hardware?
How to read/send MIDI commands to each (the keyboard would be read only, the K-Pro write only)?

Is there any kind of tutorial for this kind of thing?

Thanks in advance!

Well, I managed to figure it out on my own.
I wrote up a tutorial on my blog, for a program I called K-Gater.

The program interfaces the Roland A-300 MIDI controller keyboard to the Korg Kaossilator Pro.

 
Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
