Greetings! I would like to know if any out there knows of any programs 
that fit this description. I have looked all over the web ad havn't 
found anything. Perhaps some one may have an idea.

I am looking for a program that turns my computer keyboard into a 
virtual drum set. I would like to be able to map certain keys to 
specific drum sounds, eg spacebar=kick, enter=snare etc? If such a 
program is not availible is there a program that will turn my computer 
keyboard into a midi input device? Then I would be able to run a midi 
compatible drum program like hydrogen, and use my keyboard to play drums 
that way.

Thanks very much
