hm, yeah. we prolly need something like a virtual keyboard
on screen that you can use if you don't have a real
MIDI keyboard.

i know there's one such thing for ALSA, anyone knows
of a virtual on-screen keyboard that's properly maintained
without an ALSA-dependancy?

(if not, beast will have to ship it's own, and that's something
i'd rather not spend hacking time on currently)
