    Just thinking about it, is it possible to use an 'optical in' cable from the keyboard to the Creative soundcard?

    I have never used and know nothing about optical in.

    When you say the sound quality is poor, in what way is it poor?

    very crackly, with lots of background hissing. It is especially bad when presing keys hard or pressing several keys at once. Similar to if I was to put a microphone right up to my mouth and shout! It is like it is just too much for the mic/line in port to take

    One other thing you could try is something like the Griffin IMIC-GC1603 iMic USB Audio Interface Line-In to USB Adaptor

    does that work as a basic USB soundcard?

    I have actually ordered this StarTech USB soundcard today as I was attracted by the many inputs to play with!:

    StarTech USB External Sound Card - Misco.co.uk

    Will that do pretty much the same thing?
