Is there anyway to use two serial devices in the same project?

I want to use the TX to send midi data and also hook up an LCD.

Is this possible?

Thanks.

The SoftwareSerial library allows you to use two ordinary I/O pins as another serial port.

Its slower than the hardware one though so its best to make the least critical element use it.
In your case I'd use it for the LCD.
