Can I use a midi keyboard to play the piano with Ardour?
New on the forums, and new to electric music production in general.
I played the piano when younger and now I want to start again. ALSO I'd like to try my hand at making some music myself with several instruments and everything.
I have been doing some research, and a sequencer looks like the right tool for the second part. Ardour fits that part, right?
But, can I plug a midi keyboard into a linux computer with ardour, play the keys and have the program generate piano sounds, and record them to the sequencer at the same time?
I assume that the answer is yes to those questions, but I thought I'd double check.
The part with having Ardour generate piano sounds for me is due to the keyboard I am looking at is a CME UF80, it is cheap and I understand that it feels somewhat like a piano. But it produces no sound of it's own.
