An Overview of Keyboard Technology in the Church Context.
Keyboard technology has been rapidly changing over the past few decades to keep up with the diverse demands of musicians. It seemed every church acquired a digital piano or workstation to accompany the newly formed liturgical music teams. Many of these instruments however now lie dormant due to either their complexity or lack of contemporary sounds. Musicians in religious organisations today have a variety of needs and may have to explore several options before finding the right fit.
They can choose from the following:
Stage Piano – A keyboard geared towards live performance.
Workstation – A keyboard with a vast variety of sounds and functions allowing for performing, recording, editing and programming.
Synthesizer – A keyboard that is capable of creating entirely novel sounds through a variety of waveforms, filters and effects.
Combo Organ – A portable and versatile organ.
Arranger – These keyboards are typically used to accompany solo musicians that want extensive sequencing and backing track capabilities.
So how do you pick what you need?
Think about your environment. Do you have one keyboard player? Are you working with volunteers?
The Ringway RS400H E-Organ is a straightforward choice for those who just need to sit down and play. Some musicians may need to cover more sounds than just the traditional organ sounds, but volunteers don't have time to always program registrations in their week before the service.
The Ringway RS400H offers great sounds, with a minimal operational learning curve.
The Ringway RS400H encompasses all of the above keyboard instruments in one accessible package.
