Chapter 26. Software Instruments (MIDI) > Your FREE! Onscreen Digital Piano

26.2. Your FREE! Onscreen Digital Piano

When you fire up a new GarageBand document (on a Mac with no physical MIDI keyboard connected), the GarageBand keyboard appears automatically in a floating window. This onscreen piano is a gift from Apple to people who would like to record notes of their own (instead of just using loops), but don't own a physical MIDI keyboard (Figure 26-1).

Figure 26-1. You can make this keyboard appear at any time by pressing -K (or, if you're charging by the hour, choosing Window → Keyboard) Hide it by clicking its tiny upper-left Close button.
