Buy Keyboard

Operating system and device: All keyboards work with both Windows and Mac computers, but not all of them come with specific layouts for both. Consult the Mac section below for our picks with Mac-specific layouts that omit the Windows key and include an Option key. For any of our picks that lack a Mac layout, you can always swap the key functions in macOS.

The Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard and the Logitech MX Keys are our favorite Bluetooth keyboards with Windows layouts. If you prefer a mechanical keyboard, we recommend the wireless Epomaker TH80 Pro as well as the wired Keychron V3, Keychron V5, and Keychron V6.

Full-size keyboards include all of the letters and numbers, function keys, media keys, and navigation keys, as well as a number pad and arrows. They take up the most space on a desk and can force your mouse into a less-ideal ergonomic position than smaller keyboards do. But if you use a number pad frequently or simply enjoy having a full-size layout, the Logitech MX Keys is the best Bluetooth option, the Keychron V6 is the best full-size mechanical keyboard, and the Keychron C2 is a solid budget mechanical keyboard.

A mechanical keyboard is a high-performance keyboard with tactile and audio feedback so accurate it allows you to execute every keystroke with lightning-fast precision. Because of the durability and construction of the switches, mechanical keyboards are built to last far longer than standard keyboards. Read our mechanical keyboard guide to learn more about what makes a mechanical keyboard awesome. Your fingers will be thanking you.

The CT-S300 is a new offering from Casio and a part of their reboot of their classic Casiotone keyboards. Casio also entered our sub-$300 list with their cheap CTX-series keyboards, and a similar sound chip is included in the CT-S300.

My personal favorite bonus is the USB to Host port, which supports both MIDI and Audio. Even premium keyboards skimp on the audio interface functionality, so getting it on a sub-$300 keyboard is a steal.

While the PSR-E373 covers a ton of ground as a budget arranger keyboard, you might be looking for something that is more versatile as a song composition too. We recommend the Roland GO:Keys.

Triple sensors allow more accurate detection of your keypresses, performing especially well on pieces with quick note repetitions. Escapement gives the keyboard an extra level of authenticity by simulating the slight notch felt when you press the keys about halfway down.

Casio is a prolific digital piano manufacturer, but for the longest time I never enjoyed playing their keyboards. Their sound was a major sticking point for me, as I always felt their samples were 2nd rate compared to other manufacturers.

While I definitely prefer the wooden GrandTouch-S action on the higher-end CLP-745, plastic GrandTouch-S is still very good. This family of key actions (GH3) has been the standard for CLP-line keyboards for years now, and it is a good way for training dynamic control.

Hello! I want to take up playing piano again however due to the size of the house I am currently in I cannot fit anything more than a 61 key digital piano ? . By far the most most most important thing to me is the weighted feel, to make the keyboard feel as much like an acoustic piano as possible. I have looked through many reviews though it seems the 61 key digital keyboards all seem to lack this feature in exchange for others. Is this true? What would be your recommendation for a 61 key digital piano or keyboard that feels the most like an acoustic piano? Thanks!!!

Thank you for this great list! I am a college student looking to buy a good digital keyboard to continue to practice in my dorm. I was considering the Kawai ES920, as it is the more recent version of the ES8 on this list. I have played for years and have grown up playing grand pianos, so would this be a good option for me, or do you think the action of the digital keyboard would be too noticeably different from a grand piano? Are there other options in this mid-range that might be good choices?

With a truly split layout, the ErgoDox EZ allows you to position each half where it makes sense to you. Typing at shoulder width allows you to keep your chest open and instantly leads to a more relaxed posture. No more hunching over the keyboard.

When you extend your finger, it doesn't go sideways, does it? So why are the keys on your keyboard not directly on top of each other? The answer is archaic design, which we fixed. The ErgoDox EZ has linear columns of keys, reducing finger travel and fatigue.

Our heavy, custom-molded Wing wrist rest was designed to complement the contour of the ErgoDox EZ. We made it separate from the keyboard to allow you to control the distance between the wrist rest and the keyboard.

Our printed keycaps cover the alphanumeric characters of the keyboard, leaving the edges completely open to remapping. They are all the same profile so you can easily move them around for Colemak, Norman, or any other layout. Our blank keycaps are sculpted, DCS profiles.

A big part of what makes a keyboard ergonomic is making it work for you. Our powerful configurator allows you to change virtually anything about the keyboard, save your layouts, and iterate on them to create your very own perfect keyboard.

Developed in 1964 by Robert Moog, the modular synthesizer was the first of a generation of electronic musical keyboards, followed in 1970 by the first performance model. Thanks to advances in electronics since then, digital keyboards are now available in a variety of sizes and configurations, with a variety of features to meet the needs of both amateur and professional musicians. Here are the steps in how to buy a keyboard to meet your needs.

Now for the fun part: making the keyboard yours. Style points matter when building your own keyboard, so take some time to find the keycaps you like, a cable that fits your theme, and lighting that brings the whole thing together.

The new keyboard is also available in the same seven colours as the new iMacs. If you buy the 24in iMac you will get keyboard that matches the colour of the iMac you have ordered, as well as a matching mouse. It is not possible to mix and match.

You'll want to clean your keyboard fairly regularly, like once or twice per month, with at least a keyboard wipe. A can of compressed air or a soft and damp microfiber cloth will also do the trick.

You can use your keyboard to take a screenshot on PC by pressing the Windows+PrtScn. On a Mac, the screenshot keyboard command is Shift+Command+3.

In this article, we're going to keep it simple. Before buying a MIDI keyboard, there are a few main things to know. These include what the perfect number of keys is, why small keyboards aren't always the best, and how the key weight changes the ways it feels to play.

It seems like a lottery ticket of random numbers, but what they relate to is the number of octaves on a keyboard. As an example, 49 keys will give you four octaves, which is a comfortable amount of space to play a song using two hands.

Any more than 49 and you start to get large keyboards that weigh a lot, but have plenty of space to move your hands around on. Anything less, then you start to get compact MIDI keyboards that are perfect for a desktop but aren't any good for playing full songs on.

If you're not sure what number of keys is best, you can apply the Goldilocks Effect. That is to say, 25 keys might be too small, while 91 keys can exceed your needs, and the keyboard that combines the best of both options is usually somewhere in the middle; around 49 keys.

There are of course plenty of exceptions, but it's a great place to start. If your priority is portability, look at keyboards with less than 49 keys. But if you're looking for playability, then head north of that number.

The first time you buy a MIDI keyboard, it's tempting to go for something small. They are among the most affordable designs, plus they are lightweight and portable; which are the main reasons why you will find them on almost every best-of list. That doesn't mean they don't have downsides though.

Smaller keyboards have fewer keys to play which means you can only squeeze in one hand at a time. As a result, you will have to press a button to switch octaves, or move MIDI notes around in the DAW after you are done with the mouse pointer.

If you get a larger MIDI keyboard instead, then you remove these obstacles, meaning you can focus more on the music. There's nothing worse than dealing with tech issues when you are in the creative flow, that's why experienced users will recommend no less than 49 keys.

The array of shiny and colorful buttons on a keyboard will lure anyone in. You might even think that the more buttons there are, the better the keyboard. But before you select the keyboard that has the most impressive collection of knobs, pads, and faders, keep in mind that most of them don't work straight out of the box.

If your goal is to play live performances one day, then buttons play a larger role. But for most bedroom producers, a handful of knobs and faders is plenty to get started with, so you can record your keyboard or try out VST plugins.

Not a lot of people know that you can get keyboards with different key weights. They fall into three main categories: weighted, semi-weighted, and unweighted. The main thing to know is that the weight of keys will change how the keyboard feels.

Thanks to most USB keyboards being class compliant, you won't need special drivers or extra software to use your keyboard. Most MIDI keyboards nowadays will connect to your computer through USB and are also powered via USB too, unless it is a large model.

Most DAWs have the option to open an onscreen keyboard you can use with your mouse or play by pressing the keys on your computer keyboard. An alternative option is to open the MIDI editor in your software and use your mouse to input notes. They aren't as efficient or even fun to use, but there are scores of people who make music this way. 041b061a72
