Key Parameter Interpretation & Buying Advice

Without having been exposed to electric pianos, many terms and parameters may be unfamiliar to you. Next, we'll explain a few of the most important parameters for beginners to focus on when buying an electric piano:

Key Type (Weight): The feel of an electric piano's keyboard approximates the touch of a traditional piano by simulating the weight and feedback of traditional piano keys for learning and playing. They are usually categorized into non-weighted, semi-weighted and fully weighted keyboards. For beginners, choosing a fully weighted keyboard will give you a similar feel to that of a traditional piano when practicing and will help you develop proper playing technique. Currently, all DDP series electric pianos have weighted keyboards, and some have fully weighted keyboards.

● Sounds / Polyphony: Sounds refer to the different instrument sounds that an electric piano can produce. An electric piano with a variety of sounds adds variety to your performance, and a selection of sounds is more adaptable to a variety of musical styles. polyphony is the number of notes that can be produced simultaneously on a digital piano. Simply put, the higher the polyphony of an electric piano in the same product line, the more note-related parameters can be processed at the same time, and the end result is a more stable performance, which will not be broken or missed due to insufficient polyphony. An electric piano with 128 polyphony is sufficient for the average piano player.

Built-in Rhythms (Rhythms / Demo): Built-in rhythms are the accompaniment rhythms that come with the electric piano, which help beginners to feel the rhythmic sense of the music and practice their accompaniment skills. Some electric pianos also have automatic accompaniment, which is an interesting feature for playing and composing. Different rhythm types can help the player relate to different styles of playing. demos are built-in demonstration tracks that the electric piano allows beginners to practice by playing along with the tracks.

● Speaker Power: Speaker power determines the loudness of an electric piano's playing volume. In general, the higher the rated power of an electric piano's speakers, the louder the piano's sound can be when playing, and the better the tonal qualities can be realized. 20W speaker power of the DDP-80 series is sufficient for most players' needs in home practice. the needs of most players. Of course, if you have rehearsal or performance needs, we recommend using a keyboard speaker amplifier (e.g. DONNER DKA-20) to connect to the piano for amplification.

MIDI function (USB-MIDI): Unlike traditional acoustic pianos, electric pianos may support MIDI transmission, which allows the electric piano to be connected to computers, audio devices, and other MIDI-compatible instruments and devices. The MIDI interface allows the player to transfer music data from the electric piano to a computer or other recording device for music recording and editing. In addition, MIDI functionality allows the electric piano to act as a controller and interact with a variety of music software, including virtual instruments, synthesizers, and effects. If the electric piano supports MIDI functionality, you can record what you play within the host software (DAW) by connecting it to your computer, and convert it into editable notes for modification.
