Many of us use AUDACITY a no nonsense and FREE program. Works wonders. You need also to download LAME from the same website if you want to save you recordings as MP3.
PSR-2000 and PSR-S950

For a "device", you might be referring to a USB Audio Interface to get the audio from the keyboard into the computer. One that's basic and fairly popular is the  Focusrite 2i2. This would allow you to record the keyboard and as well has XLR connections with phantom power for microphones. You can also find audio interfaces that have MIDI ports which would be handy to have with keyboards and other MIDI devices. My own audio interface is an older Tascam US144 mkii which includes MIDI and S/PDIF connections.

This is sort of a tutorial on the benefits of an audio interface......

Audacity is a good software for recording. Also look at Reaper which has a bunch more features, can be used for free (has popup nag screens when started), and is reasonably priced for it's extensive capabilities.

Hi Dick,
Thankyou for your suggestion, I didn't know about LAME so that will also be useful

Best Regards,
