thanks for the suggestion. I will look it up.

Otherwise I was planning on trying to hack something up. But I think the
best part for me would be that when I enter the rhythm of the music I
can hear the notes of the melody actually being played. Otherwise you
have to imagine the music in your head and that would be more
difficult. What I was looking for is just a way to be able to play the
piano keyboard but without having to find where the notes are, by doing
it in two stages. I think it should be not too difficult to implement,
but I don't think it is part of any sequencer yet.
