Please bare with me since I am VERY new at creating music. I just had a question. I just wanted to say that it's not something I would like to make a career out of, but I would like to try to create nice music. This is a hard question to ask so please bear with me.
I want to get an electronic keyboard. I know there are options so you can play different sounding instruments(like trumpet, or violin) in the keyboard itself. I also know of programs that have a big set of sounds that you can use. If I attach the electronic keyboard to a program(lets say garage band for example), does using the actual keyboard limit the sounds I am able to use for making music.
In other words, If I use a keyboard with a program. Can the sound contained within the keyboard be the only options I can use to make music? Or can I use the keyboard, pick a sound(in the program)that the keyboard might not have, and then use the keyboard to make music?
So lets say I want to use a robot sound found in garage band, but not found on my electronic keyboard. Can I set it to the robot sound in the program, and then use the actual keyboard to play that sound? Or is it only limited to whatever sound options I have on my keyboard?
I hope this helps, and sorry for the lack of music knowledge. Also if you know of a program that is good for beginners but has a potential to make great music, that would be great.
