Online Guides: Controller Keyboards

At the simplest level, a controller keyboard, also commonly known as a "master" keyboard.

Welcome to our Controller Keyboards Online Advisor.

There was a time when all electronic keyboards produced sound, but the advent of the MIDI communications protocol made it inevitable that specialisation would ensue, and the dedicated controller keyboard was born - as useful for controlling the software instruments of today as it was for the hardware instruments of yesterday. The following pages give an overview of the major functions of controller keyboards, and the main types available.

Our Online Advisor extends over several pages – you can jump from section to section using the index below or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
