Hi,

I have searched and cannot find an on screen keyboard that allows keys to be held down without a whole bunch of alternative characters being displayed and the key press stopping after a split second.
I use PH Reason music software over Steams live streaming app and would like to use the keyboard to play music notes which of course I can only do for a split second before the alt chars appear.
If anyone has an idea that would be great thanks.

You've got Reason running on an Android phone or tablet? I thought that was only for Windows or MacOS on computers?

The only times I've seen QWERTY keyboards been used to play notes in a music software is in GarageBand or Logic running on Macs, and Apple calls it "Musical Typing". Hold down a key and it sustains the note, just like using a music keyboard or a piano. I'm pretty sure that no Android keyboard apps were designed with that in mind. The only thing I can suggest is using a USB MIDI controller keyboard plugged into your device, that some Android music apps can use.

We do have Steam China, in Chinese and Chinese games only. If I try going to the international Steam site, it redirects me to Steam China site.

BTW I never saw anything of Google's Stadia for myself.
