thanks for the quick answers,

Zynaddsubfx: i allready knew this programm. its nice. but i think not 
the right thing for my friend. there are a lot of "freaky" sounds in it, 
but a realy good piano sound is not there. am i wrong? at all, its a 
synth. i think a sample-player would be better.

the wavetable-thing: puh... i dont know how to do this. and i cant try 
it out on her computer, because she lives in another city. her boyfriend 
is also a linux-dude (he will install the system), but he has not much 
to do with music-production.

qsynth: thats a good idea. i dont think, she want to spend money at the 
beginning. but i already found some soundfonts on the web. seems to work 

sec24: where is the record button?

Rosegarden: i cant say very much to this sequencer, because it doesn't 
work on my system . dont know why. just dont start.

what is with muse? i tried to record some midi-signals, but the 
sequencer just ignored it. (yes i found the record butten, and yes i 
connected the midi output with the muse input)

outher thing: if i connect (with qjackctl) my midi-keyboard with a 
writable device called "1:TiMidiy port 1", then i can play without any 
other programm. but its very laggy. can someone explain me this?
