Hey hey - In a rush of "good judgement", I decide that the only way I'll be able to really accomplish my dream of simple three and four note synth lines and easy beats is by purchasing one of those smart little Keystation 49e modules. This thing is fantastic, just about idiot proof, just about portable, and seems to really do everything a simple little fellow could want if they're looking for easy beats, catchy synth lines and the occasional background on a piano. Basically, it's there to augment my iMic-based guitar input and crappy microphone. Well, of course after spending most of the night playing around with my new, very cost effective toy, I come across a program that I had been looking for, but didn't know existed, called MIDIKeys. Basically, MIDIKeys programs your "z" through "," keys on your keyboard and the ones just above them as your "white and black" keys, respectively. This thing is just fantastic, not quite as intuitive as the proper keyboard, but really a fantastic and free little program for low-note beats and melodies. Now I'm in a pickle! Can someone, anyone, please convince me to keep my new, proper keyboard in lew of returning or selling it to just use the more limited but very similar MIDIKeys?? Obviously, the Keystation leaves a lot of room to grow, more so than the program, but really what I want to do is so limited, the program might just do it.... Thanks for reading my little neurotic rant.... N.
