    Need a bit of help :)

    Greetings all

    Being new to the computer/music world, there is a very stupid question i would like to ask ... sorry about it , but i really could use the answer

    I just ordered a midi keyboard (my first one) and i am about to order GPO .. my soundcard is a regular Z2 Audigy and i own also Fruity Loops.
    The question i have been wondering is about outputing. What format does GPO outputs (either straight from the GPO tools or used as a VST plug) ?
    Does it come out as a midi file or a WAV file ?
    I need .WAV
    Can i get it simply thru export or do i have to record the output of my computer thru an external recorder?

    I know it is a newbie question, but i have not been able to find the answer around ... so if someone could help me

    Thank you

    You can export as a wav file. I'm not familiar with your card, but you should be able to export the files directly without routing the audio externally.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but you need to use either a sequencer or a notation program which uses GPO as the audio output. You can't use GPO by itself to play/record music. It works in conjunction with other software that sends midi information to GPO. I hope this is what you're asking.

    Thanks for answering

    Do the softwares included in the GPO package allow that (outputing to .wav)?
    I also have Fruity loop wich can be used as a sequencer and "notation" soft i believe.
    Basically the question was : do i need to buy another software or hardware to get a .WAV if i own only GPO + a midi keyboard .

    Thanks for your time

    Sorry for the delay, but for some obscure reasons, i wasn't able to log to the forum ...

    Just wanted to say thank you to all the people who took time to answer me.
