I'm getting a little tired of listening to the music played by my computer,
the soundcard is okayish nevertheless the computerised instruments sound
unreal and tinny. I've heard that it is possible to bypass the soundcard and
hook a midi connector from the line out socket to a synthesiser which plays
real sampled instruments. Does anybody have any experience of this? If so I
would be grateful for some information  on how to go about it, what hardware
I need, and a ballpark figure of what it is likely to cost me (I don't want
to make any more expensive mistakes!)

As I'm no computer techie therefore plain language would be appreciated.
Maybe offlist replies would be better
