There is a video on Youtube demonstrating how to do it, but it does not work for me. I don't know if it's because he is on a PC or what.

I open EZ Drummer, then open my virtual keyboard in Reaper and no matter what key I press, nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.

1. Click on your FX button in the track inspector area and then select EZ2 VSTi
2. In the track inspector area click on the INPUT and select MIDI then Virtual Midi Keyboard and select ALL channels or Channel 1 if you want.
3. Make sure you hit the monitor button on the track
4. Hit your keyboard keys and voila

Just did it here BTW and it works. OSX 10.13.6 here
Reaper 4.78,OSX 10.13.6, Steinberg MR816X
