Sometimes it's the drummer, sometimes someone is offstage, sometimes there are entire songs programmed and they all have click tracks in their in-ear monitors, and sometimes it's a combination of those things. There are so many controllers available now and so many kinds of software that the possibilities are manifold. Drum pads or sensors, foot ...

If your daughter has to practise on it, the ideal would be to have an accoustic piano. Then, if you want to use it for electronic music maybe you can have a look at pianos with "silent" mechanism. I know Yamaha makes them; I don't know about other brands, but probably they do also. They are normal accoustic pianos that incorporate a mechanism that, when ...

I would first see if I could figure out what's causing the delay and fix that. Software synthesis is used live all the time. My first guess is it's a driver issue.

It seems to me there are unlimited possibilities for making songs. So it is hard to make a suggestion.

Most likely you are looking for a 1/8" stereo to two 1/4" mono cable: then ...

If you want your kids to practice a lot, it would probably be best to get an acoustic piano, and then transcribe into piano role on your computer (I use FL Studio, so using piano roll w/ mouse and keyboard is very easy, and I recommend it). Now, if you really want to play directly from piano to computer, I know there are electric pianos that can easily be ...
