De grote online raadgever van Thomann: Controller Keyboards

5. Other Features

Controller keyboards may incorporate many additional features. Let’s look at a few of the most important:

MIDI Ports

Any keyboard designed for connection to MIDI equipment must have at least one MIDI port. In order to control multiple devices more easily, some controllers have more than one MIDI output port. Though pure controller keyboards do not themselves contain sounds, some nonetheless have a MIDI IN port, allowing settings to be controlled remotely, for example from computer software.

Host/USB Port

Connecting a MIDI keyboard to a computer conventionally requires a MIDI interface. Some keyboards simplify the connection by the addition of a USB port – effectively a built-in MIDI interface. A few keyboards designed solely for studio use dispense with ordinary MIDI connections altogether - in this case the USB connection often carries power too. The presence of USB connections on controller keyboards has also lead to the creation of ‘convergent’ devices which include not only a MIDI interface, but also an audio interface, meaning that a single device can be all you need in addition to a computer to make music – great for long journeys with a laptop!

Drum Pads

Some controller keyboards are now starting to incorporate drum machine style pads in addition to keys as an alternative method of entering drum patterns – also handy for triggering loops and sound FX.

Flightcase

Most serious gigging musicians use flightcases to protect their equipment. To save having to buy this separately, some professional controller keyboards are available in flightcased versions, whereby the keyboard case is the flightcase – simply remove the lid, plug in and play.
