Nonsense. Piano is quite obviously superior to all other instruments. Learn that.
Jokes aside, I agree that any instrument will do but for practicality's sake, I'd still recommend learning piano if you haven't already. Apart from the fact that it's an amazing and versatile instrument, learning how to play the piano will make it easier if you ever buy a MIDI keyboard.
I know tonnes of people who use a MIDI keyboard just fine and they don't know how to play piano, but of course knowing piano will make the process a lot smoother and allow you to play more complicated stuff than standard chords in the left hand and a melody in the right.
That's just my advice though, quite obviously biased since piano's my favourite instrument. There's a tonne of instruments to choose from (most generally not as expensive as a piano) and learning how to play any one of them may be really rewarding, relaxing and make you think of some great ideas without mouse-clicking even once.
