Each and every hobby has a start. I'm going to learn how to play the piano. For this, I'm planning to buy an electric piano. There's a regular grand piano I have access to, but they come without headphone jacks, and until I get better I want to limit the scope of audible torture to my own ears as much as possible. So, I could do with some of your advice.
This list of requirements is not meant to limit you in your advice, but serves more as a guideline, to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.
- Headphone jack
- The sound library must contain at least a 'normal' piano sound and an electric piano sound (the more it sounds like a dirty Rhodes, the better!)
- At least 128 voice-polyphony
- At least 76 keys, but preferably 88
- Weighted keys
- Simulated hammer action
- High repetition
- Ebony and ivory key feel (don't like the sensation of smooth plastic)
- MIDI support so I can hook it up to a computer to try out other sound libraries
Completely unnecessary but cool:
- USB port
- Bluetooth compatibility
If you've learned to play the piano, especially as an adult, any advice you may have for me would be more than welcome, too.
