Hey, I have a WK-1800 and would like to create mp3's or midi files of sequences I've done to contacts. I'm still a bit of a rookie at this, so what steps would I need to take? Anyone's advice on this would be greatly appreciated!

To create MP3s you will need to connect a cable from the output of your WK1800 to the input of your computer soundcard to record a WAV file and then run any software that can convert the WAV file to the MP3. You will probably just need to buy an inexpensive adapter to allow you to plug your stereo 1/4 phono jack to a 1/8 mini jack that will plug into your soundcard. Radio Shack or a similar electronics store will be able to provide this. Then you will have to experiment with sound levels so you get a good signal that doesn't distort or get too weak.

Here is a link to a great 'free' audio recorder, that can export your recording as an mp3... http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
