DirectMusic or Windows MIDI

I’m getting double midi notes when recording (one on top of the other). Was just wondering which one to use and which one to deactivate from the Devices/Midi Port Setup. My choices are DirectMusic or Windows MIDI.

So, one device shows up two times, one for DirectMusic and one for WindowsMIDI ? I think this is strange.

Usually the very most devices show up as WindowsMIDI only. DirectMusic is a deprecated part of the DirectX API, so maybe you should look if your device has a newer driver with support for WindowsMIDI.

Well, well I have an m-audio midisport 2x2 with the latest drivers. I just deactivated the directmusic ports and all is well. Not sure why both show up, but thanks for the info.
