An external instrument is also great when it’s time to choose a sound for a new track, because you can walk through the various instrument names without ever having to close the Track Info dialog box. See Figure 4-3 for more information.

I also have been looking at the offset of the piano keyboard on the side, and it looks like its 1-2px lower than the Piano Roll. It would be good to get this aligned. The keyboard need not to be realistic (as in beveled corners etc) just line up. If this aspect of the keyboard is intentional then please disregard this suggestion.

I think the shape of the piano roll keyboard is optimized to keep the piano roll rows have the same height.
