The Virtual Keyboard is used to be able to play instruments in Amped Studio without the need for an external MIDI keyboard. When you open the Virtual Keyboard it will assign a portion of your computer keyboard to play an instrument. The keys used for playback are written on the keys on the Virtual Keyboard. On the left side of the keyboard you can also change the current octave with the - and + buttons.
The Virtual Keyboard editor is also resizable so you can zoom in or change the height of the window. You also have the option to play keys simply using your mouse and clicking on them. This also works to record notes.
