sound cards and more.
I am just an average guy who would like to maybe build a computer system and maybe buy some above average software and hardware so I can create my own music through some of the current technology availabe for the Home Studio type capability.
I know enough only to prove I know so little so I seek advice and input from those who may know from experience what it takes. Do any of the Forum members here write and create their own music? Would some of you care to share your expertise with the less knowledgeable.
I am not talking about ripping mp3s or making remixes of other songs (although I might like to cop a riff or beat hear and there). But If I understand the available technology as I think I do, I believe that there is hardware to tie in a piano type keyboard to the computer and then select an instrument sound like Electric Guitar, Bass, Drum, Saxaphone etc. and then use the keyboard to play the instrument to create the sound or rythm you wish. Am I correct??
