hi , this may come across as a very stupid question but ..
i always diagrams for midi setups with the interface showing the sampler / sound module etc ... using the midi ins and outs ... now i only use the ins of the samplers etc ... i dont bring it back to the computer .. because i only use the sampler and sound module as slaves .. why wouldy ou want to bring the sampler / sound module back in ? if you get me
thanks alot :)

If you are originating the song from an external modual (like a music keyboard) into the computer... to a sequencer program, you use the 'computer midi in'. Or you may want to capture an external drum pattern or sound to study how it is constructed.

Or if you are using a MIDI editor or librarian, you need to get your patch, etc. data back to the PC to edit or store it.

If you are using an editor or librarian, the only way it knows what is in your equipment is if it can read it from your equipment. Unless yuou have an editor than can edit patches on floppies or something. MIDI Quest and SoundDiver both get your patches from your equipment.

I am basicly a hobbiest as far as the keyboard, but the Music Keyboard into the computer midi connection is great to save new tone settings on my Casio wk1630, using a bulk dump command. And the songs are a lot easier for me to edit (correct bad playing).... on the computer.

Exaclty why your Casio MIDI out needs to come back to your computer.
