If you sample a snare drum, and use that sample, it will sound more like the real thing vs. a synthesized snare hit, which will more likely sound synthesized. One disadvantage of samples is they may need to be ...

A DI box converts a high impedance, unbalanced signal to a low impedance, balanced signal. If plugging a high-impedance electric guitar output into a mixing board, then unless the board has dedicated high-impedance inputs, you'll want to go via a DI box. In your case, with the keyboard, the outputs are already (probably) low impedance, though they are ...
