128-note Polyphony

The G4M KB-iii 61 Key Keyboard features 128-note polyphony. Polyphony refers to the number of "voices", or notes that can be played simultaneously on a musical instrument. The G4M KB-iii can play up to 128 notes in one instance without notes dropping out or being cut off. You'll find this proves useful when playing complex pieces of music that feature many simultaneously played notes, or when layering sounds on top of one another in split mode.

These are designed to accurately relay every nuance of your performance, providing a realistic and expressive playing experience. With their authentic feel, these full-size keys help you develop proper technique over time.

Useful Modes

The G4M KB-iii 61 Key Keyboard has a number of modes to help enrich your playing experience.

  • Split - Split mode allows you to determine where you split the keys and the voice used for each hand. This means you can effortlessly accompany yourself. This function proves particularly useful for playing bass and lead lines simultaneously, or commanding brass and string ensembles.
  • Layer - Layer mode allows you to play two or more different sounds or voices simultaneously, with one sound played on top of another. For example, you can layer a piano sound with a string sound to create a rich and full sound. The layer mode is a useful feature that enables you to create more complex and interesting music compositions, as well as to mimic the sound of an entire band or orchestra with just one keyboard.
  • Transpose - Transpose allows you to change the pitch of the notes you play, shifting them up or down in semitone increments. This can be useful in a number of situations. If you are playing a song that is too high or too low for your vocal range, you can use the transpose function to shift the key of the song to a more comfortable range. Transposing can also be used creatively to explore new musical ideas, by shifting the key of a melody or chord progression and discovering new harmonic possibilities.
  • Record - Record allows you to easily capture basic melody and harmonic progressions.
