It is my pleasure to review the eMedia Play Piano Pack Deluxe from Hammacher Schlemmer. My daughter has always had an infinity with musical instruments, and an even stronger love of music in general. Now that she is a little bit older, she can enjoy the benefits of advanced technology in helping her become a better musician! This device provides enough features to assist from the novice to the experienced learn music better.
The keyboard itself hosts a range of 61 keys that are touch sensitive for a more realistic piano sound. The built in speakers can produce beautiful music with the 300 realistic sampled sounds. The piano uses digital signal processing that allows for extra chorus, or reverb as necessary. Chorus provides a thicker sound that is often associated with electric pianos and guitars. This device provides 32-note polyphony that provides multiple lines of a unique melody. As well, the device does have an output jack for headphones for when practicing quietly is necessary!
Learning musical instruments is not easy. As a result, eMedia has packed in features that assist with learning proper timing and keys easier. Built into the keyboard is a metronome to help keep the music on time. A recorder is built in to playback music so one can listen without playing simultaneously. In addition, there is a piano chord dictionary and an LCD display, which shows notes in musical notation. With one hundred demo songs and auto-accompaniment styles, there is plenty of music to be learned. You can also hook the keyboard up to your computer for instant critique of your playing. Lastly, the device comes with an add-on music stand and AC adapter so you do not have to use the six ‘AA’ batteries at all times.
This is a great piano pack for adults and kids alike! If you would like to purchase this, you can buy it from Hammacher Schlemmer and have it come with their lifetime guarantee!
