alternative to Caps Lock keyboard

if you need to input notes and don't have a MIDI keyboard you can use the graphic keyboard in the EXS24 editor

1. open an EXS24 editor (one from an Inst you're using or a blank new one)

2. in the Arrange select another Inst that you want to play

3. click back onto the EXS24 editor

4. play/record notes with mouse

 

one drawback is that you can only play one note at a time but, unlike the Caps Lock keyboard, the EXS24 editor keyboard is more than 8 octaves

 

in the picture i'm using the editor keyboard from an empty bypassed EXS24 on Inst 5 to play Spectrasonics Atmosphere on Inst 6

you can leave this editor open and hanging just below the Arrange (like in the picture) and just click onto it when you need it :)

one more note about this tip

obviously, it's a pain to "play" with the mouse. it's even harder because the default EXS24 editor keyboard has small keys.

at the bottom of the editor window is a zoom control that you can use to make the keyboard bigger. the standard zoom key commands also work.
