[PD] Newbie request

Actually, this isn't for speech recognition - i'm trying to come up with a
simple way to use key triggers to activate visuals.
For example: if the piano plays A440, i'm presuming PD can be configured to
recognize that pitch with a microphone input and then echo out a text string
- the letter "A", perhaps.
I have a presentation program that can be configured to accept keyboard
strokes to activate visual events.
Does that example make sense? PD sounds like it should be able to handle
that capability pretty easily...
