just wondering if there are any musicians around here. I am thinking about getting a synth/ keyboard so I can hook it up to the computer and make some cool tunes to play in the IS300

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.

Classical pianist here. I had my first piano lesson at the age of 40(!), seven years ago. Have played for two weddings and given several solo recitals. Proof that you're never too old to learn ....
