I have a Roland MT32 and a Yahama DX100 keyboard that I used to play from my Atari computer. The MT32 must be played from computer software through a midi connection. I now want to use these instruments again and I have a new Windows 10 laptop that should be capable if I have the correct software and usb-to-midi connectors. I would also like to use this same laptop to play our church Yahama Clavinova.
My question is what software options do I have on a limited budget. Would I be able to do this with free software, or is it best to go with Finale Pro or some other program? My main purpose is to play these instruments in church after being able to program the music.
My second question is r=also software related. Is it possible to scan sheet music or a page from a hymnal and have it play the song through the computer to one of these instruments?
