It's a bit complicated, but to record the music you create using Symphonic Choirs, you will need a sequencing program or DAW like Pro Tools, Cubase, Sound Forge, Digital Performer, Logic, etc.

A sound interface is basically an external sound card to an extent. They connect to your computer usually via FireWire or USB. They often have multiple audio inputs (1/4 Inch Jacks, XLR, and MIDI) and they also sport a number of audio outputs.

Programs like ProTools require you to have certain interfaces, and others don't.

Oh, okay, thanks, that's interesting to know.  One last question, if I am going to get some programs from soundsonline, specifically East/West Quantum Leap stuff, what do I need to run it and use it?

I would recommend having

A PC or Mac with at least 2GB of RAM
2.5 GHz processor if PC / 1.5 GHz for non-intel Mac
2 Internal Hard Drives - both should be at least 7200rpms -1 with around 250GBs of storage.
DVD Drive on your computer
M-Audio Midi Controller Keyboard
Pro Tools LE with a MBOX 2 interface
Pair of non-computer speakers

I don't know about a Chinese Opera, but he's officially on the project now!

Don't worry though, just listen to the many scores he's written, and you'll know that he's more than capable of providing the score to this.  He'll not only capture the themes of the show, but elevate them to new levels that the tv show didn't approach.

I'm looking forward to Howard's score for the Avatar films.  And, because it's a trilogy he'll have a chance to create themes and enlarge upon them through each movie.

Back to the score, I was pretty impressed with what I've heard so far, in the trailer.
I was expecting it to be "big" certainly after the bombastisc score that the happening got.

The thing I likes most was the fact that with the second shot (the tilt and pan) the music starts out big and epic and all that, but when it moves down it get's this realy cool warning tone, the big horn-like sound and then the music makes these realy cool brakes/stops which makes it realy realy exiting. Love the last part!

Okay, sweet.  Thanks.
That's means he's involved early with the project, which is good.
