I wouldnt think there is...

Just as a note (no pun) there was some keyboards with key installed it was designed for people a bit like you. I am unsure if I have it listed on my site any longer, but see if it is - Also if its not I can see If I can get you one, It seams odd that you own a keyboard but want to playit on the PC, and that you dont pick one or the other, you will proberly find some sort of midi keybaord for the PC any way under some bizzar software type thing..

There are two ways to go about this:

1. Use a softsynth to create the sounds (if your keyboard is just a controller)

Native Instruments FM7, Pro-53, Absynth 2
Propellerhead Reason
Arturia CS-80V, Moog Modular V

All these turn the PC into a software-driven synthesiser, easily a match for a full-fledged stand-alone instrument. Visit http://www.native-instruments.com/, http://www.propellerheads.se/ or http://www.arturia.com/en/default.lasso for demos/more info.

Reason also has the added advantage of containing a sequencer, drum machine, samplers, synths AND effects units. Some of the results are as good as the stuff you get in the charts today.

2. Get a sequencer to record what you play on the keyboard (assuming the keyboard can make sounds on its own).

Steinberg Cubase
Cakewalk Home Studio 2/Music Creator Pro/Sonar
