Default Virtual MID Keyboard always on without the additional window open

On my wishlist is the behavior of Bitwig, Ableton, Renoise or FL-Studio, where I can play notes with my computer keyboard without having an annoying virtual keyboard window open all the time.

Okay, but how would it work best?

Consider Reaper allows you to bind any input to actions, and there are actions that by default, are bound to keys the keyboard uses. How would Reaper know you mean to press a virtual piano key and not the key bound to an action?

1. checkbox in Preferences
2. action for vmk on or off toggle, so that anyone can put it in a bar
3. per caps lock like in Bitwig
4. an option to hide the actual vmk window

I have no idea how this all could work internal. I am really new.

It could work like how it does in Live. With midi keys activated keyboard shortcuts do not work.
You still can adjust parameters of a vsti or anything else with the mouse and the keyboard will always play notes. This could be an option to turn on or off.

Yes this sounds good. I never use shortcuts, but I play notes for sounddesign or simple thinks a lot with the computer keyboard. But always must be an extra window open for that, that's a bit annoying.
