Just and update to the Virtual Midi Keyboard concept for we laptop users - I discovered a new product called CHIRP which can be found at [url=http://www.tanageraudio.com]www.tanageraudio.com[/url]. It has the added advantages of being compatible with Vista (32-bit) as well as XP (and there is a Mac OS version as well) and the piano keyboard is mapped to the laptop keyboard so you can use multiple keys simultaneously to play/input chords, or hunt and peck if you prefer, or use the mouse. It is also a pretty powerful midi controller. Additionally, it does not seem to overload Finale regardless of the speed of input. There is a demo download available (full version - 7 day tryout period). Purchase price if you like it is $39.99. Pretty sweet tool, I think.
