A question on behalf of the boyfriend...

And forgive me in advance for my technical terms... I don't know any of them, so I'm going to do the best I can to get my point across.

Basically, he has a keyboard that he can use to record himself playing music (forgive the poor grammar)... I think it's a pretty decent one - something like 16-tracks. It has a drive for a floppy disk and that's what he uses to store any songs he records.

His question is this - is there a way to take the songs off of the keyboard through the disk and put it onto a format on a computer? So he can record stuff on his keyboard, take it to a computer, and format it so he can burn it onto a CD?

I told him that more than likely, it would require a piece of software and some cables, maybe, to plug the keyboard into the computer. But I obviously don't know too much about this sort of thing. So he asked me to ask my livejournal friends if they knew of any way to do this.

I don't know what kind of keyboard he has (other than it's fuckin' huge) and his computer is pretty decent, but it's not top-of-the-line.

So what sort of software/cables/other such stuff would he have to get? And what would be the approximate cost for all of this?

Thanks in advance and all that fun stuff. :)
