I hope this question hasn't been asked a million times but is there a way that I can use my laptop keyboard to control the pianos and synths built in as plugins? I realize that it may be necessary to purchase a MIDI controller in order to fully utilize their features but I'd like to get something recorded now. Any advice or walkthroughs or links to purchasable programs/plugins would be appreciated. I've personally been looking in the specific MIDI Options area where all I see is the option to set my Line 6 Toneport as a MIDI Input...which does nothing. Thanks for any help.
