Need advice quickly

Recommended Posts

I think good music makes a good game great so I want to get into composing music for videogames.I have a low-end keyboard with 100s of sounds on it but it's very hard to make complete tracks with. I have less than $100 to spend on a music program for the computer and after looking around I found Sequel 2. I like how it has many loops & sounds built into it. I'm wondering if and how you connect the keyboard I have (it has SD & USB slots) to Sequel 2. (Also, is this a good program in the first place? Any other recommendations?)

Honestly...this is what I prefer to use for most music projects.

Small, compact, portable, and for most music formats, it's good enough.
Some of the sample sound qualities are a bit dated, but if you want to know how it sounds, here's two of my pieces of work for example:
This one is purely the machine.

This one is the machine mixed with me playing a guitar over the top.

Do you have an audio interface (sound card) with midi in?

If so you can use the keyboard as a controller with midi, doesn't matter if the USB mode will be compatible or not.
