Is it possible to play with a digital piano in the same way like an acoustic piano

The sound

In contradiction to a traditional piano, where the sound is the result of the interaction of vibrating strings and the resonating cabinet, a digital piano generates its sound electronically. In a compex process the sound of a high class grand piano gets recorded (sampling) and it will be played back by the electronic system of the digital piano. So you can enjoy the full sonority of a premium acoustic piano.Hammering mechanism of an acoustic piano.


The playability

An authentic experience of playing is very essential. Therefore the most important features of a piano are the touch sensitivity and the weight of the keys. These are the deciding factors to reach a wide dynamic range while playing the piano. Pressing a key on an acoustic pianos keyboard causes a hammer to strike a string, which is vibrating and sounding. The intensity of the strike (hard or soft) decides about the volume and the sound of the stroken string. The keyboard of a good digital piano reproduces the hammer-action in terms of touch sensitivity and weighted keys in a realistic way. This leads to an authentic feeling while playing the digital piano, similar to the playability of an acoustic one.
