Installation is very simple and does not require complex configuration.
MIDI drivers are quickly recognized but access to menus is a bit "surprising" because the menu is very light (eg, access to MIDI preferences = Button [studio] -> Devices -> Options). Apart from the doc in English, the software recognizes GM, General Midi 2 standards and in fact, can record changes in bank (it is even possible to make its own Maps).
For my part, I use it with an old Technics KN6000 (standard sound: NX) and all goes well.
The manual is sometimes insufficient, but the developer is only to do it all: as such, it is a feat! after there is a quite responsive forum.
The software works well on the following configuration:
- Windows 7 x64 home
- 4 GB of RAM
- Intel QuadCore CPU Q8300 2.5 GHz
- Microsoft Rating 5.1
- Cable MIDI / USB adapter UNO 1-1
I'm not very demanding but after various tests (Anvil Studio which was promising, FL Studio, Presonus Studio One), I selected MTS because it seemed more intuitive (I come from the world Atari ST / Sequencer 24) inexpensive for personal use.
I need not "think" flight software but immerse myself in my composition: MTS is sober, simple, logical and light.
Just add a track (MIDI or Audio but also 'Click Track' for the metronome) and then play. The MTS7 software (yes, I'm talking about version 7.6) records the information. By clicking on  to the right of the recorded track is accessed from other functions to select the notes and apply a quantization example.
There is no loop but the software offers "patterns" (for example rhythm) and a function [repeat] to copy / paste a sequence N times.
Although it is possible to use VST, you can not use VST Midi / Midi (eg BlueArp arpeggiator), which is a shame.
The demo version is limited to 3 tracks in particular.
