An electronic keyboardportable keyboard, or digital keyboard is an electronic musical instrument, an electronic derivative of keyboard instruments.[1] Electronic keyboards include synthesizersdigital pianosstage pianoselectronic organs and digital audio workstations. In technical terms, an electronic keyboard is a synthesizer with a low-wattage power amplifier and small loudspeakers.

Electronic keyboards are capable of recreating a wide range of instrument sounds (pianoHammond organpipe organviolin, etc.) and synthesizer tones with less complex sound synthesis. Electronic keyboards are usually designed for home users, beginners and other non-professional users. They typically have unweighted keys. The least expensive models do not have velocity-sensitive keys, but mid- to high-priced models do. Home keyboards typically have little, if any, digital sound editing capacity. The user typically selects from a range of preset “voices” or sounds, which include imitations of many instruments and some electronic synthesizer sounds. Home keyboards have a much lower cost than professional synthesizers. Casio and Yamaha are among the leading manufacturers of home keyboards, with Casio popularizing the instrument since the 1980s with their Casiotone lineup.[citation needed]
