I use a Roland RD-170 for keyboard control, and a set of V-Drums for
drum input via MIDI.  I output to various devices, usually a Yamaha DX7
synth, a Korg DDD-1 drum machine, a Kawai K1m synth module, and an Atari
ST (for chip sounds).

I had some weird problems getting the MIDI ports on my US-122 working,
but that was a long time ago and they probably weren't supported
properly by the driver I was using at the time.
