Hey, my name's Brian Medeiros, and we're going to do some electronic keyboard reviews. Synthesizers have lots and lots of different features on them. Depending on the amount of money that you spend and what you're looking for, you're going to have lots and lots of different features to look at. For example, this Casio keyboard that we're taking as an example, has speakers on it, which is cool to have internal speakers that way you don't have to plug them into external speakers. Saves a lot of time. Weighted keys are important to look for. This one does not have weighted keys but it just improves the feel of a keyboard, so that's important to look for when you're purchasing a keyboard. Some other features would be obviously the sound bank that comes with it. You want lots and lots of sounds, and you also would look for a midi port. On the back of lots of keyboards you have midi ports. Some of them now come with stuff like this Smart Media card, it uses a little SD card, you know a standard SD card that comes in phones and digital cameras and stuff now. To save your compositions it also you can also increase the sound bank by adding sounds, popping them in the back of there. Other keyboards have USB plugs to hook up to a computer as a interface between the computer to control synthesizers on the computer which you can also do with this Midi port on the back of here. So when you're looking for to buy a keyboard things to keep in mind are the features that you're going to need. Things like MIDI ports are important; big bank of sounds; speakers on board are pretty important, too. The feel of a keyboard is important, so if you get weighted keys you're going to be spending more money, but it feels a lot more like an acoustic piano. And those are some features that I would look for in a keyboard. And that's my keyboard review.
