Studio One has a built-in virtual keyboard for Presence and Mai Tai and a built-in virtual drum pad for Impact. You can use the keys on the virtual keyboard or pads to trigger sounds. If you need to record MIDI into the program, you can use the built-in Qwerty keyboard or you can manually click your MIDI notes into the Editor window with a mouse. You can download a demo of Studio One 3 from within your my.presonus.com account. If you do not have an account, simply create one at my.presonus.com.
