I've played music all my life but I have never recorded anything or done anything on the computer with music and I would like to start. What I will be doing is doing soundtracks for small homebrew games im creating. I would like to connect a keyboard that has programmable keys that I can map for different sound effects/instruments. Here is the system that I came up with: -iMac 24inch maxed specs (ram thru crucial) -logic express or garage band (I havent used either or owned a mac, im new to all this) -keyboard (I would love a suggestion on this as I havent keyboard shopped in 15 years, and I cant run to a store to see what they have to offer) Am I on the right track or am I way off track? Any suggestions or advice would be most welcome .
