    What is "playable" as related to keyswitches?

    My question today:
    The manual uses the term "playable" for some keyswitches. For example on page 83 several keyswitches use it. What does that mean?

    MacMini 8 GB, Sibelius, Reaper, GPO4, Garritan Steinway Basic

    Off the top of my head I think it may mean that they are not below the range of the keyboard.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I haven't seen an explanation of this term, but I tried a "playable" solo violin trill a few months ago and discovered it plays one note of the trill when you depress a key and plays the other note when you release the key. I guess "playable" means it's useful in a live performance.

    That sounds alot more reasonable!
