I'm hoping to set up my laptop with an external USB MIDI Keyboard and use Alicia's Keys piano VST sounds to play back.
So I was browsing on the net, looking for a simple keyboard that I could use and came upon this: http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_u...ation88es.html
The program in which I want to do all this is Finale 2010.
My laptop specifications are here [from DX Diagnostics]: http://www.box.com/s/65j55uxeqbi7od5quc96
So my idea is to buy that keyboard, hook it up to my laptop's USB, launch Finale 2010, then load up Alicia's Keys VST and then play on my keyboard. Will it work? I have concerns about latency (delay when pressing the keys) and the sound in general. If there are any problems with this setup, can you please point them out and suggest a solution? Cause I don't want to spend a lot of money on that keyboard only to find that it doesn't work. Cheers and looking forward to helpful replies
