Don't yet have a USB or MIDI keyboard? Want to play around with instruments in GarageBand without using the mouse? You need the free program MidiKeys, which turns your regular keyboard into a virtual Midi keyboard. You can play multiple notes at once, and though it's obviously missing much of the functionality of a real musical keyboard, it's good enough for tinkering. Note that you'll need to switch to MidiKeys to play, so start GarageBand recording first, then switch.
More useful Midi apps available at the developer's site.
