Because digital pianos and keyboards rely on sampling, they can produce a range of other instrument sounds. For example, musicians can choose from such instruments as flutes, harpsichords, strings and percussion, making a digital piano or keyboard very adaptable.

A digital piano offers a weighted key action to mimic the feel of an acoustic instrument. For example, on the Yamaha YDP140 Digital Piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are lighter.

Advantages of a digital piano

There are a number of advantages to playing a digital piano or keyboard as opposed to an acoustic version. For instance, they can have built-in rhythm capabilities to accompany players. In addition, because a digital piano is without strings, they never need to be tuned, saving their owners time and money.

A digital piano or keyboard also enables their users to take advantage of Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), which means they can communicate, control and synchronise with other electronic musical instruments, computers and equipment. An example of a keyboard with this capability is the M-Audio ProKeys Sono 88 Key.

A digital pianos can be relatively portable, as they are smaller and lighter than the traditional alternative and can often be partially dismantled for the purposes of transportation. Users can also play silently by plugging headphones into the instruments.
