    Question my first keyboard

    So after decades without touching a keyboard, I'm getting an Oxygen 61 for Xmas.
    I realise it is hardly pro gear, but just want to try out a few things:

    - Learn to play basic piano and grasp music theory.
    - Having fun making some basic tracks.

    So ... for the price with included basic software, it seemed a good option, rather than invest in a large piano-style keyboard or a synth.
    I'll just be chilling on my sofa with it plugged into my laptop as I tap away.

    Is there any software or plugins that I should be thinking of investing in?
    Any links to youtube videos for learning music?
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    It comes with Ableton Live Lite and SONiVOX Twist.
    That's plenty for now.
    Later you can get the full version of a DAW and add more VST plugins.

    About 20 years ago I studied using Cubase, so will probably gravitate back to that.
    Thanks for the videos.
    I can also use VST with my DVS, so there is some potential for using all this with Djing as well.
