keyboard commands

Hi everyone

Could someone please tell me how to assign a sound (e.g. a base drum, high-hat) to the letters on my laptop?
Thank you for your help.

Best regards


There used to be an app that did that. Can’t recall the name but Google should turn it up. MIDI input via keyboard might be a search starting point.


which Steinberg program do you use ?



Thank you for your answer mashedmitten. I’ll check that.
To Chris Beuermann: I just bought Steinberg Cubase 6. I’m really fascinated =). Do you know the answer by heard?
Many thanks in advance


Hi together

I finally got the answer. -> Instruments -> virtual Keyboard…to be opened with Alt+K.
Thanks anyway.
