Sampler/Keyboard/Computer/Synth dude over here... Here's a picture of my home studio as it sits behind me now...

And actually, here's a cool tune to play in your IS300 that I did with a friend of mine...

Depends on what you want to do. You can really accomplish alot with just your computer and a digital audio card now.

what's the different between keyboard & synth?
Strictly speaking, a keyboard is anything that has keys and a synth is short for synthesizer that makes sounds which can have a keyboard or be a module of some sort played through midi (or even just a card on a computer).

You can hook a MIDI keyboard up to a computer with a MIDI interface, yes.

what computer program would you recommend?
Again, depends on what you want to do. But most people use a Sequencer + Digital Audio program like Cakewalk Pro Audio. Digidesign has one of their programs available for free now, you can try that.

Thanks man! Yeah it cost me a pretty penny, but worth every one. Music is my second passion behind autos of course. Hopefully I will have more and better pics whenever I get my digital camera.

No, that's my friend singing. I did all the music, except the guitar, which he played too.
