Background and Identification
An electronic keyboard is an electronic musical instrument that is also called a portable keyboard, digital keyboard or home keyboard. It is typically composed of a synthesizer, a low-wattage power amplifier and small speakers and they normally have unweighted keys.
Electronic keyboards have a variety of users and types of use: children using them as a toy, a beginning piano player uses them for practice, a serious musician or producers may even use them for recording, it all depends on the features and type of electronic keyboard. According to The Vault, more serious keyboards, “are commonly loaded with different voices, tones, rhythms, and sound effects to give a player or producer a lot of control over their sound.” Also according to The Vault, keyboards “were designed to produce a much wider range of sounds than traditional pianos. Though they are sometimes good options for beginners, the range of available features on a keyboard make them more appropriate for intermediate to advanced musicians who are interested and capable of developing their own sound.” Electronic keyboards also cost quite a bit less than a regular piano or even a digital piano.
