Device Overview

Name/Version: Better Computer Keyboard 1.0
Author: panison  
Description: Who needs accidentals? I made a replacement for Ableton's default 1 octave Computer MIDI Keyboard. The layout for this keyboard is (without those pesky sharps/flats):

qwerty row: C5 - C6-->
asdf row: C4 - C5-->
zxcv row: C3 - C4-->

I even included a transpose control in case you felt inclined to play in a key other than C. You can also change where the scale starts on your keyboard (root note on "g" is the way to go).

The details:
Put the device on a track you want to control.
Arm the track.
You have to have to click on the device or it won't see your keystrokes.
Don't change parameters while you've got keys pressed or you might get some sticky notes.
If you want to use "q", KEY map it to a control that does nothing.

If you'd like to understand how the patch works, shoot me an email and I'll clean it up:
