Default What JS plugin(or VST) to allow PC keyboard/ VMK to change banks/presets?

I do some composing outside of the studio, and for that I just use my laptop. the reaper VMK is a godsend, BUT I want this


1>) VST PLUGIN Stays on -screen
2.) Virtual Midi Keyboard stays on screen
3.)neither goes away when clicking the other
4)want to cycle through Presets and/or banks with my Laptop keyboard , preferably using the < or > keys (or up and down for banks maybe)

now when i even click on the GUI of the VST plugin, the keyboard sound stops. incredibly annoying.

Yes, I have done a thorough search. there are JS plugins pertaining to midi in reaper(im using the latest version) but there is no explanation for what they do(a hover-over description would be nice as hell tbh, the terms used/names arent exactly intuitive for the average joe)

thank you, this would be a life saver!

Take a look at SWS LiveConfigs and "Patch"

-> http://www.bschnell.de/patch.pdf

(Maybe a bit over the top, but done for exactly this)

I Have no idea where the plugin is , or how to install it(the live configs I see, but not the PCtoCC thing.

I just want to have the virtual midi keyboard in use....and to change banks/presets from the keyboard.. while the plugin window stays in focus. as it is now..when I click to change a bank or whatever...(or to modify a parameter , like oscilattor, wave shape, etc). the note stops.

ideas/?

I don't remember. I don't use it any more, as I did my own variant. If I find it, I'll post the few lines, here.
