Samplitude appears to be a complex piece of software, with rather too many features for a newbie, although I've managed OK with mic-in and Line-in audio. (as per the Tutorial)
However, what I want to use is MIDI. That way I hope (yep!) to lay down a collection of tracks to create copyright-free music. (yeap I know!)....
Nevertheless I'm having great difficulty in getting MIDI into this package
What I've done
My MIDI Keyboard and a MIDI-USB adaptor works OK - with "Evolution", on the same PC I can playback either through the PC or the Keyboard. Therefore I'm confident my MIDI bit are working OK.
Tried YouTube Tutorials, but these also assume Samplitude is all working, and most are for a different versions, having altered set-up boxes.
What I can't do
Basically, I can't get MIDI into Samplitude, and the Help-manual (nearly 400pp) only defines menus, buttons and Words - there appears to be no method of inspecting* the MIDI-in-out. Unfortunately the Tutorial ignores MIDI-connections, rather assuming it is connected correctly -

* It would be nice if there was a simple built-in test-tune, maybe using a harp-sound playing a simple melody - this would make sure the output was correct while selecting the correct GM-instrument.
