What to buy? What is your budget? What kind of computer do you have now?
Thank you for your incredibly quick reply.
I tried the tape-recorder bit. Sound is muddled, can't correct mistakes, overall not very satisfactory to me. So, I don't mind MIDI, since it will give me more latitude post.
Budget: up to $200
Computer: I have a homebrew. I build my own PCs.
Intel Corporation DP35DP
Bus Clock: 266 megahertz
BIOS: Intel Corp. DPP3510J.86A.0572.2009.0715.2346 07/15/2009
3326 Megabytes Usable Installed RAM
2.40 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
4096 kilobyte secondary memory cache
Multi-core (2 total)
Dual-booting into XP-SP3 and Windows 7
Got lots of software: Cakewalk, Audacity, Vegas, Cubase, etc.
I mess around quite a bit with audio. Converting, editing, up-sampling, creating faux 5.1 from stereo for my car's DVD-A player, etc.
So I am not uncomfortable wth either software or computers. It's the silly cables and gadgets as they are applicable to the digital piano that I am befuddled with. Things change so fast I can't keep up. I feel embarrassed that I have had this terrific piano for all these years and never did anything with it except play late at night with headphones on so I won't distrub the family.
I just can't seem to wrap my mind around the mechanics of the setup: interface, cables, etc. I don't need video.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
