I got a very respectful private hint that no one can likely answer without 
more   specifics lol!
so...best to do this now.
I am first and foremost a singer, but I am writing a great deal these days. 
Original songs and arrangements of material  for performing.
I do not play on stage, or not yet.  Instead my goal with this keyboard or 
workstation is to generate the parts,  piano, base, guitar, even drums?, 
and then use the command line Linux audio tools to create sheet music 
for printing.  this does not mean necessarily that having the actual audio 
is not desired, after all this will help with copyrights.  It is not, at 
this moment the main goal if this makes sense.
my research is indicating a ton of options, but I will be using the m-audio 
card  not usb midi.
Is this better?
