I think most serious electronic instruments have MIDI anyway. You'd need
some sort of USB-to-MIDI interface, since most PCs now don't have a D15
joystick interface, but those are cheap enough.

My friend is already a GoldWave user, but that's for actual recordings;
as you say, they don't do MIDI. MIDI is to .wav or .mp3 or whatever as
sheet music is to a record/tape/CD: it instructs _how_ to perform the
music. With a MIDI editor, you can change individual notes - pitch,
duration, or instrument - which you couldn't do with GoldWave etcetera.
Especially if that note is part of a chord where you want to change some
but not all of the notes.
