here's animoog (iPad app) as an example of what you are suggesting:

the 'root note' is the key signature. then you pick the scale type (drop-down menu finger is pointing to), which then shows the relevant keys in green in the middle, at which point you can select / de-select keys...the resulting 'keyboard' is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

it's actually very slick.

and the 'keys'... the mod/velocity/etc functions are mapped to the key -- if you touch the key near the bottom, you get a low value - near the top, a high value...
