Hey guys and gals, I'm new here, but I see there's good info so I thought I'd register and join. I'm a long time guitarist, old DAW hack, and a pianist in the making.. I have a question that I can't seem to figure out. I'm not sure if I'm just being stupid about the obvious, but I'm in the market for a new synth and I'm looking to maximize my sound quality in Sonar 8.0 using VST's. So my question is: What will best reproduce the sound of a VST, a good sound card using a midi controller keyboard or a synth like Roland's Juno Di (in my price range) using the headphone out? I'm assuming that if I plug the Roland into my DAW I will be able to use an output ASIO driver to send the VST sound back to the Roland and listen to the sound through headphones. I'm just wondering if I should instead use a good soundcard to output the midi rather than the synth for a more accurate and quality reproduced VST sound. Make sense? Any help would be appreciated! I'm going to buy my new keyboard soon.. it was a toss up between the Yamaha MM6, the Korg X50, and the Roland Juno Di.. Roland seems to have the best midi capabilities.. but I'm a novice in the keyboard realm so if someone wants to steer me in the right direction, I would appreciate that as well!
