    Alrighty, I have fruityloops, and intagrated (Wow, that is really off, but it's late for me, so it goes, MKAY?) Audio and video, and if I want to record a part, and use the key board as a ,,,,well, music keyboard, I get HUGE lag, and it might play when I press,,,,it might not, maybe a second or two later,,,, so i can't really write anything with pitches,,,,ya dig? So, my question is,

    Do I need a midi controller or something? and a REAL keyboard that can work with usb or something for it not to lag?

    Or, just a newer, better, no lag good soundcard (M-Audio) For no lag?

    Midi soundcard will probably do it.

    I've found that Windows generally has more lag than mac os, I have no idea why, but it's been pretty constant in all comparisons with my slow ass iMac against speedy windows based pcs.

    but a good midi soundcard will most likely solve your problems. more ram can never hurt either.

    of course, if you get a midi soundcard you will also need a midi controller keyboard...neither of these items are THAT expensive...but they still do cost cash...just something to keep in mind.
