All trackers I've tried on the Amiga allowed you to use "the keyboard as a keyboard".
Sorry, in my post I meant PC not Amiga for the keyboard thingy. Not that I'm bothered anyways have a Korg Dss1 synth and an Oxygen 8 MIDI keyboard to use. Kinnell... jump down me throat eh
Yes Ableton can do keyboard mapping (jeez - what can't it do? Fantastic proggy), but for ease of use I certainly suggest the easier learning curve of FL Studio (it is in some ways tracker'esque), build a sequence and then bung it into the playlist, build another sequence add it to the playlist when wanted etc... that's it at it's basic simplistic self.
