The Panorama T4 from Nektar is much more than just a keyboard. It can be used with any MIDI music application, and with most major DAWs it also benefits from in-depth integration with the programme which allows advanced levels of control for the user. These DAWs include Bitwig, Cubase, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reason, Reaper and Studio One.
Forget the average, flat-to-the-ground toy keyboard – your kids can be Schroeder from Peanuts with the Deluxe Grand Piano from Hape. This mini piano is part of a series of designs from Hape, which include mini black and pink baby grands and a mini red upright piano. However, looks-wise, the Deluxe Grand Piano in white takes it that extra bougie level.
Let’s face it - we spend a lot of time using keyboards. If you spend a lot of time glued to yours, you may have found your wrists and fingers complaining. For a while, ergonomic keyboards have attempted to ease the strain on our hands, but one of the most unique solutions is the Ergodox. This design splits your keyboard in half, into two pieces that are curved in a shape that mimics the natural reach of your hand.
Technology is allowing kids and adults alike to pick up skills and pursue independent learning like never before. The YouTube generation are teaching themselves everything from dance styles to cookery and plant care in their rooms, and the ONE Light Keyboard is here to cash in on and further enable that trend.
The beautiful Brydge 12.9 Keyboard brings the MacBook experience to the 12.9inch iPad Pro (2017 and 2015 models). Available in both Silver and Space Grey which matches perfectly to you iPad Pro, it features a standard QWERTY layout (note: it is only available in this format). Constructed from a high-guide aluminium it has a sturdy weight to it.
I have been keen to review the K Board from Keith McMillen Instruments for quite some time as an owner and fan of their previous keyboard the QuNexus. When I received the K Board I did think I had been sent the QuNexus again as the display looks very similar being the same size and with the same layout but upon closer inspection I could see the control buttons on the left hand side had different functions labelled. For those who have never used either a QuNexus or a K Board the device is designed to be portable with dimensions 325mm(L) x 84mm(W) x 11mm(D)
We had the pleasure of testing the BrydgeAir Keyboard with the iPad Air 2, ideal if you type a lot on your iPad and want to transform it into a mini netbook. The Keyboard is not going to win any awards for being light it is beautiful designed from aluminium and weighs 520g / 1.15lb but this isn’t a cheap piece of tat it is a high quality tactile keyboard, user tip if you are using it as a laptop do not put it on bare legs as it is super cold.
