On-Screen Keyboard

The On-Screen Keyboard allows you to play and record MIDI notes by using your computer keyboard or mouse. This is useful if you have no external MIDI instrument at hand and you do not want to draw in notes with the Draw tool.

When the On-Screen Keyboard is displayed, the usual key commands are blocked because they are reserved for the On-Screen Keyboard. The only exceptions are:

  • Save: Ctrl/Cmd-S

  • Start/Stop Record: Num *

  • Start/Stop Playback: Space

  • Jump to Left Locator: Num 1

  • Delete: Delete or Backspace

  • Cycle on/off: Num /

  • Show/Hide Transport panel: F2

  • Show/Hide On-Screen Keyboard: Alt-K
