One first note is that the program is can be used as a plugin, but also as a stand-alone component. In order to access it as the latter, you are required to download the piano offered when the program when you run it for the first time. It goes without saying that if you want to employ is as a plugin, you need to have a suitable VST host.

It is worth mentioning that if used as standalone, the application comes with a couple of extra features, such as playing, pausing and resuming MIDI files at different speeds, for instance. Moreover, you can use it with DirectSound, ASIO and similar devices.

Enables you to view the notes being played

Custom color schemes can be created, and different settings saved for later use. In fact, the app allows you to stop the cursor in the DAW so you can view the notes being played.

Speaking of notes, you can configure the tool to fade them away instead of ending them abruptly. Consequentially, you have some time to visualize the quick runs.

Since it only connects to the audio layer for the sole purpose of reviewing the notes, there are no options to alter the sound. The interface is resizable in width, just to restrict the view space to the keys of interest.

A reliable tool for anyone interested in learning the piano

All things considered, VirtualKeyboard is a versatile and easy to use application that can make learning how to play the piano more convenient.
