Keyboard to midi

My goal is to translate a key combo into a midi note.

I have searched and found a few posts-
But as a new user, I am still unsre how I get started. I did some tutorials and managed to get a keystroke to send a midi note, but was not able to work out how to limit that to a particular keystroke, it was any.

Thanks for your help

you probably want the key object in combination with select. For more serious mapping it might be worth looking into coll rather than select… Have a look below and at the helpfiles of those objects. that should get you started.
And for key “combos” have a look at an object called thresh (there is also quickthresh).
Good luck.
