    I'm looking into using a laptop computer triggered by a midi controller keyboard for live use using the sounds on the computer. I'd also like to to be able to run my midi out from my GR-20 to be able to use the computer synth sounds on my GK pickup on the bass as well.

    Anyone have any insight on what all I will need to get other than the obvious (laptop, keyboard controller, cables) and what soft synths/samplers work well with this kind of application? I may also be interested in using this setup for some sequencing as well.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. reason works for me, but i'm sure there are many more, and much better!

    Yeah, you'll need a good quality audio interface. You could connect the laptop to the pa using the 1/8" outputs, but you wouldn't be happy with it...
