I'm looking for a cheap midi interface to download patches for my vamp 2 and have windows xp. I have read some reviews saying that the m-audio uno and other have problems with xp. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

I use the games port on my computer, with a standard midi cable... it works just fine (XP). I think that most problems people experience is down to particular settings in the computer... finding them is the trick :)

I had problems initially, until I found that on my BIOS settings there was a "Midi port" or some such disabled. I ticked it to enable it, and that solved my problem.

A USB interface may be handy, and it may even work if you can't use your gameport... but it shouldn't be necessary.

I use the M-Audio 1X1 Midi-USB interface with XP, and it was a bit tricky during the installation process, but it works like a champ now that it is set up. It is $39 at sam ashe.
