8 Things Only People Who Play Digital Pianos Would Understand

8 Things Only People Who Play Digital Pianos Would Understand

Digital pianos are the future of the music. They are small in size, yet capable of producing big sounds and I’m not just talking about piano sounds!

If you have tried to play a digital piano at least once in your life or already have one at home, then here are eight things you can absolutely relate to!

1. You can play and hear the music the way the composer heard it

Did you know that J.S. Bach actually wrote many of his pieces for the harpsichord, not the piano (though they are typically played on the piano)? Digital pianos usually have this sound among the many others, so you can re-create any piece of music just the way the original composer heard and played it so many years ago.

An acoustic piano, on the contrary, can only ever sound like one thing, but digital pianos can sound like any piano you can imagine!

2. You don’t spend extra money on maintenance

That’s one huge advantage, as you know that tuning instruments isn’t cheap and can cost upwards of $150 per year. Otherwise, your instrument is completely unplayable.

You love your digital piano as you can switch to play in a different key with a touch of a button (makes playing in C# a whole lot easier!).

3. You can practice in absolute silence

Inspiration strikes after midnight – yet you don’t want to wake up your partner or your neighbors? You don’t need to wait until morning to record a new tune you’ve just made up, as you can plugin a set of headphones.

You can dive into the process of creating with no side distractions and outside noise. Besides, when you are just learning it is essential to stay fully concentrated on the process and don’t bother others with some chords played wrong.

Also, some digital pianos have twin headphone jacks, so you can play a tune privately to someone or listen together with your teacher to spot the tiniest mistakes.

4. You have more space to create

Apart from having multiple keyboard sounds, digital pianos often have other tunes like guitar, bass, and synthesizer sounds. This way, you don’t need to have a full orchestra to experiment and mix up your own melodies.

Plus, you can always download and add additional tunes and sound effects from a royalty free music library to mix and mash when you are struggling to produce the right one yourself.

5. You can instantly record your performance

You don’t need to write down the tune you have created and keep a bunch of notes scattered around the house. The beauty of digital pianos is that you can tap a button and record everything you have just played and afterwards share it with whomever you like!

Or, have it transcribed for you as a sheet music, so that someone else can play it too. Additionally, recording is an excellent learning tool as you can play back, pick out, and practice any problems, nipping bad playing habits in the bud before they become ingrained.

6. You develop a sense of rhythm faster

Timing is essential to playing the piano great, and often a huge issue for beginners. Your digital piano has a built-in digital metronome that can be easily adjusted to any beat and tempo with just a few clicks.

This makes it easy to slow any piece down to learn and master them, and to tackle complex time signatures and other advanced concepts later on. Another benefit – you don’t need to spend extra money on buying a physical metronome!

7. You can enhance your performance with numerous apps

We live in the digital age and the beauty of it is that there’s an app to help you with pretty much everything. The coolest digital piano models have touch screens where you can display digital sheet music as well as interactive exercises and fun games.

Also, with apps, there’s no need to stop and flip a page like while you are playing from a sheet! You can install one on your tablet, so that it “listens” as you play and will automatically switch to the next page when you reach the last bar.

Roland has a great selection of apps for digital piano players! Currently, most of them are for iOS devices only.

8. You still have a lot of room at home

Yes, having a grand piano in your living room is somewhat posh, however if you rent out a small flat, having half of the living space occupied by the instrument isn’t that cool.

Digital pianos offer the same big sound out of a surprisingly compact item that can be easily transported without paying a tiny fortune to the movers!

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
