    OK here goes with the short version.

    I have an IBM think pad that I want to connect a joystick
    to. Real reason is I want it to control a Behringer DSP8024
    digital graphic equaliser. Now the EQ has MIDI in/out that
    will connect to a computer **BUT** the "D" plug is a
    joystick size and the laptop does not have a sound card as
    such that has the Joystick connector. BTW Behringer uses a
    program called WinEditor to remotely configure the EQ
    devices. My only problem is connectivity.

    So "How do I hook up my MIDI cable to this laptop?" Or
    "how do I run a Joystick on a IBM laptop?"

    TIA TT

  4. Had same issue when using a midi synthesiser on a lappy. there are several
    USB to midi adapters on the market. I assume the EQ unit had a standard midi
    in port? the adapter should work ok. Most also have midi-in aswell.
