    No sound when trying to use MIDI synth

    Hi guys, I'm trying to learn a little more about music and I thought it'd be good to have a go at playing music while I did. I found in the Ubuntu software centre a couple of vurtual music keyboards that can accept inputs from my normal qwerty keyboard but when I open them no sound comes out. I have a sound blaster X-Fi card, could it be something to do with the drivers for that? let me know if you need any more information and importantly how to obtain that information, I am posting in the beginners section for a reason. Thank you.

    Which virtual music keyboards are you using?

    Some require the actual VST/is to be loaded.
