my first thought would be a simple accumulator:


where 'n' is 1 for each key pressed / note-on, and -1 for each key
released/note-off, coming from [keyname] and [notein].
But a problem you may run into if you want to press and hold keys on the
keyboard is automatic key repeats, which result in a stream of 0's and 1's
from [keyname]'s left outlet.
I wonder if one could work around that within a pd patch...but I havent
tried it...
The best way would probably be to turn key repeats off in the os.
