Digital Pianos Singapore

There’s no beating a real acoustic grand piano when it comes to sound and appearance, but they’re certainly not right for everyone. For starters, a brand-name grand piano is extremely expensive, but it also takes up a considerable amount of space – classical pianos and small apartments don’t mix!

If you’re an experienced classical musician, you might be against the idea of using a digital piano, but for many, it’s actually far more preferable. Even mid-range digital pianos these days can sound remarkably close to the real thing – their sounds come from audio samples of real acoustic pianos.

Digital pianos are also great for live and studio recording. Since they usually have audio and MIDI inputs and outputs, they can easily be integrated into studio recording software or DAWs (digital audio workstations) such as Audacity, Ableton and FL Studio.

Shopping for a digital piano

Thanks to their size and relative affordability, digital pianos have become hugely popular, resulting in a massive range of options available.

Generally, the more you can afford, the better your digital piano will be. If you have a limited budget, stick with the well-known brands. The big brands boast superior materials and construction and use top-quality samples from highly regarded full-sized pianos to create their authentic piano sound.

So much shopping is done online now, but if you can, we really urge you to visit your musical instrument or piano store to try before you buy. If you’re not sure how a particular feature works, ask a staff member to show you how it’s done. Listen closely to all the demonstration instruments and decide whether they are right for you.

If you don’t think your new piano will be used much for recording, you could probably forgo some of the high-tech bells and whistles and opt for a digital piano with the most authentic sound.

What is the difference between a digital piano and a keyboard?

Digital pianos are designed with hammer key action, which means they feel and sound like an acoustic piano. Keyboards, on the other hand, come mostly with soft keys and don't have the graded key action.

Keyboards are purely electronic and often have features like a library of built-in sounds and rhythms. They make great gifts for those who aren’t ready to commit to classical piano lessons. The more advanced keyboards have features like touch-sensitive keys, pitch mend, save to USB options and more.

How many keys should a digital piano have for beginners?

Digital pianos generally start with 62 keys and go all the way up to 88 keys (that’s 8 octaves!).

If your end game is to learn to play a wide range of songs and musical styles on the piano, our honest advice is to get the 88-key piano if your budget can stretch to it.

However, if you’re buying a piano for a complete beginner, a full-sized piano might be somewhat intimidating since nearly all beginner's songs don’t come close to using the entire keyboard. And besides, it’ll take them years to master the cross-hand shuffle!

What to look for when buying a digital piano

Apart from the build quality and materials, one big factor to consider is that the keyboard is real to the touch. What exactly does that mean? Well, most digital pianos nowadays come with a fully-weight hammer action keyboard that resembles the feel of an actual acoustic piano (unlike a regular keyboard, where the keys are hollow).

Both weighted and non-weighted keys can produce a sound that is touch-sensitive (e.g. the longer you press the key, the louder the sound). Fully-weighted hammer action keys feel much closer to playing an acoustic piano and their soft and sustain pedals are generally more expressive.

Most digital pianos also come with the option to purchase a sturdy piano stand, seat and pedal kit, which is as close to having a real piano at home as you can get.

Advantages of a digital piano

We’ve covered some of the advantages of purchasing a digital piano already, but to sum up: 1. Digital pianos are far more cost-effective than their acoustic counterparts

2. They are much smaller and compact than classical pianos, making them easier to move and position

3. For children and adults who are not sure how long they will play the piano for, a digital piano gives them everything they need to have fun, practice and take exams in the meantime

4. Digital pianos come with sounds and rhythms, so you're not just stuck with “Default grand piano”. Expect a few harpsichords, Hammond organs and more.

5. Today’s digital pianos integrate painlessly with all sorts of hardware and software. Need to practise softly? Plugin your headphones. Recording a MIDI or audio track in your home studio? All you’ll need is a cable, an audio interface and some recording software.
