Great to make a few notes with GarageBand on a laptop. Works perfectly in Panther.

This is the best way I've found to play without peripherals, and it makes adding notes in Reason and Garageband a piece of cake. Indespensible!

Summary

To the other commenters: Look in preferences. There are "on top" and "global keys" options (the latter requires you to hold down the "Ctrl" or other modifier key while playing in GarageBand, but still ... it works!)

Very nice way to play around with GarageBand while I don't have a keyboard hooked up to my Mac ...

"Why does it have to be the \"active\" app?"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a nice app. But what would be even better would be it playing, for example reason, while in the background. this way, i can tweak reason knobs while hitting notes and hearing my results instead of going back and forth between reason and midi keys.

another nice feature would be allowing me to build my own keyboard map.

great job.
