Music production is quickly shifting away from the traditional form of physical instruments and trending more toward electronically produced sounds. Fruity Loops is one such program, allowing musicians to create sounds and music all on their computer at home. Writing music on a computer may seem more difficult without piano keys or guitar strings in front of you that are intuitive to play. One solution is the MIDI keyboard, which is an electronic keyboard that plugs into your computer. If you don't happen to have a MIDI keyboard, you can also use your PC keyboard for programs such as Fruity Loops.
