Can I hook up either a Roland XP80 or a Casio MT800 to use as a keyboard with a PC? What else do I need as far as software to complete the configuration. I am synthesizer/music stupid, this is for my husband who is PC dumb, but music intelligent.
I think I need a MIDI to USB cable (or some type of cable), but I am very confused as far as software goes. Does the keyboard become a type of "dumb" terminal, or can you feed in a pre-arranged composition, and then use additional software to re-arrange, embellish, what ever. What type/product software would be best.
Sorry to be so dumb, but I don't think that he needs a new keyboard, and complete virtual synthesizer software package to make music. Or does he? His Birthday so I'll spring for what he needs.
