I dont have a midi controller keyboard. I want to use my laptop keyboard to play some simple lines on reapers integral keyboard so i can use a vsti plug easier than banging my head against a brick wall trying to programme each note in th emidi editor. Is this possible and if so how do i do it please?

Thanks \:\)

VIEW menu check "virtual midi keyboard" OR AltB brings up the keyboard

TRACK MENU "Insert a new track"

Right click the track record arm button, choose INPUT: MIDI VIRTUAL KEYBOARD ALL CHANNELS

Arm the track by clicking on he record arm button so it turns red

Make sure the keyboard is IN SCOPE (click on the bar at the top of it)

Now your PC keyboard will trigger midi notes - the bottom row starting at Z are the white keys, the middle row starting with the S are the black notes (or you can click on keys with the mouse...)

To set which note is the center of the virtual keyboard, right click any note and it will become the center
