The Sound Blaster Audigy is a computer audio/video card manufactured by Creative. Audigy is equipped with several types of audio input/output jacks for connecting external equipment such as CD players, surround sound speakers, microphones and musical instruments, such as an electronic keyboard, using an MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) protocol. If you already own some or all of these devices, chances are the equipment came with the necessary connection cables so you may not need additional materials. Audio cables are available at computer and electronics stores.
