Are we talking about the kind of keyboard that I am using to type these words here or the kind of keyboard that sends midi notes?

To trigger stuff in your patcher from your computer keyboard, you need to look at the key object.

To use a midi keyboard, you need to look at the notein and midiin objects.

These objects will help you trigger your sounds but you need something to make sound with first. For example, to playback a sample you can look at groove~ and play~ objects.
