Yes there is a way of doing this, and 3 or 4 different people in this thread have spelled it out for you pretty clearly. It's one thing to be a novice and full of (what to more experienced people sound like) silly questions, but when people are gracious enough to give you straight answers and you don't even appear to be reading them, that just seems like willful ignorance.
So there's really no way of either like connecting a laptop to an amp or something. Do you think really loud speakers would work?And how would you go about doing that wireless thing?
Anything that is capable of producing sound and has an Audio Out jack can be hooked up to an amp (you may need adapters of some sort, if for instance your laptop has 1/8" Audio Out and the amp has a 1/4" input jack), be it a guitar/bass/keyboard amp or a regular home hi-fi with speakers attached.
Once more to summarize (and please pay attention this time): a laptop is capable of producing sound and thus has the potential for amplification, a synthesizer produces sound and thus can also be hooked up to an amp with favorable results; a MIDI controller which only produces MIDI messages and no sounds
, while it can be used to control a laptop or a synthesizer (rack or keyboard) and stimulate them to create sounds, can not by itself be successfully be used to make sound come out of an amp
, anymore than you could cram a set of strings into a guitar amp input jack -- sans pick-ups, neck, body, frets, et cetera -- and expect sound to come out.
Furthermore, asking the same question over and over will not change any of these basic facts.
