    I have a Cakewalk program, but I was wondering is it better to use a keyboard w/ midi capabilities because I can't get some songs to play fast enough when I use a mouse. Any suggestions??

    I don't understand the question.

    It really doesn't matter what you use to input the notes into Cakewalk (although I personally think that step editing with a mouse is very counter-productive to musicality and a keyboard would be a lot beter). The speed it plays back at depends entirely on the tempo setting

    imho there must be a way to play with pc keyboard.

    Go in mobo bios an switch from 6 to 30. the response from keyboard is faster then

    Well, there is - but it's by no means an easy thing to do as the computer keyboard isn't really very ergonomically efficient for such a purpose. Much better to buy a cheap keyboard midi controller - Evolution and Roland make some quite nice ones for little money - and start playing a 'proper' instrument.

    Keyboard input is much quicker, even if you can't play. You can always quantize and edit your screw ups later. I use both a midi keyboard and a Roland GR-1 Guitar synth.

    Programming one note at a time is really a pain in the butt.
