With the rise of EDM and other electronic-based music genres over the last two decades, there has been a rise in the number of people rejecting these genres followed by their refusal to accept them as music as well. However, this has not stopped the electrical music genre from expanding, so much so that a lot of classical musical instruments have been remastered as digital variants as well. So, you can now find instruments like the digital drum, the digital piano and so on as well.
For the sake of this article, we will be restricting our discussion to just digital pianos. You can easily through any music related website for more information on the evolution of digital music as well. Digital pianos are small, portable, and usually made of plastic as opposed to their classical counterparts that are heavy, bulky and made of wood.
If we talk about sounds, then a traditional piano has keys that make a sound as you press them because there are strings and small hammers behind them, the different keys will make different sounds. Secondly, the force with which you press a key will change the intensity of the note you are playing, so a light touch will elicit a quieter sound whilst a more firm touch will make the note louder. Digital pianos have the same number of keys as normal pianos and they will hit the same notes as well, however, the sound is still a little varied. Plus, the biggest disadvantage of digital pianos is that you cannot control the volume of the note when you are pressing different keys, so you cannot change the exact pitch of note which can be tedious for some. However, it is still a great way for you to polish your basic skills.
