O visited a friend in the UK a couple of weeks ago. He has EZKeys and he uses it with Mixcraft 8. I was quite impressed, especially with the loops etc for composing music. I played around with it, but I was unable to find any way to route the output from an EZKeys composition without having any imput device like a keyboard.

I can't believe that Toontrack would offer the capability of being able to compose a song without being able to route it and record a MIDI track from the song. My friend has a keyboard, but he was unable to offer any advice other than "I don't think you can do this with Mixcraft"

I'm not a computer whizz, so if there is a way to do it, please let me know in very easy to understand terms. I'm going back over for another visit in the New Year and if I can get this to work, I will certainly consider a purchase.

Thanks in advance for a meaningful reply..

It's not clear (to me anyway) exactly what you are trying to record MIDI to? When you build a track/song in EZKeys (or EZDrummer, SD3, etc...) you are essentially constructing a song with MIDI in EZKeys. If you want to export that "song" to something else (a DAW - Digital Audio Workstation for example) you could drag the MIDI from EZKeys (standalone) to your host desktop (Windows/Mac) and import into the DAW. Some DAWs support dragging and dropping directly, while some don't, which is why I described dragging to the desktop first, which is most cases I know will work.

Running EZKeys as a plug-in within a DAW (like Mixcraft, Protools, Studio One, etc..) allows you to output the audio played by EZKeys to an audio track or in many cases drag the MIDI to a MIDI or instrument track within the workstation.
I hope something in there helps answer your question.
