The Midi Keyboard controller is often the most misunderstood of the keyboard and piano family. This is due to the fact that many people aren’t fully aware of what they do and what they were designed for.
Another reason for the confusion is that Midi keyboards don’t actually generate the sounds themselves. So what do they do then? Why do they look like they should make a sound like a regular keyboard?
The best way to understand a midi controller to use an analogy. Think of a mouse and keyboard for your computer. They’re crucial input devices that control your computer. But, without the computer they won’t work and won’t provide value. This is pretty much exactly how Midi keyboard controllers work.
They allow you to create music with the help of your computer to process and generate the desired sounds.
