No matter where you play—from the stage to the studio to your living room—virtual pianos, keyboards and organs are a powerful and practical alternative to a sound unit or the instruments themselves. Not everyone has room for a piano or an organ in their home, but a virtual instrument is as compact as you want it to be. A virtual piano on your laptop is quick and easy to take anywhere. Just bring along a pair of headphones and you're good to go. For the studio or stage, you can plug in a keyboard controller and an amp to get the effect of a real piano without having to struggle with transporting one. Virtual instruments use sound sampled from the real thing for an accurate reproduction. One of the best aspects of this is that it gives you a chance to experience playing some of the world's greatest pianos and organs, even if you never see the real thing. A virtual piano sampled from an artisan-crafted and tuned instrument puts that piano at your fingertips anywhere. The "Alicia's Keys" virtual piano is a good example: it's sampled from Keys' very own keystrokes on her one-of-a-kind Yamaha C3 Neo grand piano. Digital instruments like virtual pianos, keyboards and organs have a unique advantage in that the more technology improves, the better they become. There was a time when a virtual piano and a real one would sound remarkably different, but with improvements to technology, that difference has all but disappeared. Today's virtual pianos and organs can faithfully simulate even complex harmonic behaviors, such as the Synthogy piano that emulates sympathetic string vibration—the effect of two strings reacting in harmony to the striking of one key. With a great virtual keyboard, you get the portability of digital components without making sacrifices when it comes to sound. Virtual pianos, keyboards and organs are a great tool for beginners and professionals alike, with options available to meet any standards for performance and sound. These software keyboards give you great flexibility, providing the option to use them with a basic mouse, keyboard and headphone setup or go all-out concert-ready with a controller and amplifier.
