When we think about pianos and keyboards there is one thing that always comes to mind one way or the other, and that is size and a lack of portable capabilities.
When it comes to size, or even shape, this instruments are defnitely not the most comfortables to take with you anywhere.
That is why a great solution has come in the form of a portable keyboard, which is both very convenient and useful for people that are usually traveling or just moving instruments from one place to another very often, which is the undeniable fate of musicians.
Piano De Voyage had its debut at Namm in 2019 and received very good feedback. The idea behind this special keyboard is that it is a USB controller with all the qualities of a full sized keyboard but, with the useful fact that you can fold it and pack it wherever you want. It has a USB connection and sustain pedal socket. Right off the bat this is an incredible idea for anyone who wants to keep playing without any concern of “where” and how.
Carry it Anywhere
Everyone that is devoted to their pianos and keyboards often finds dissapointment when having to play an instrument that isn’t theirs.
Everyone loves their own instruments and whit Piano de Voyage that is something that can be accomplished but is it reliable in terms of quality? Well it is, and it can give you the choice to bring up to 8 octaves in your backpack, which seems like a crazy idea.
Its creator Olivier, did not have to think about something too crazy to come up with the idea of the portable piano, it was just the desire to practice when being out on a vacation or a business trip.
If you are worried about the quality of this new invention as a keyboard, there is no need to worry.
There is a great focus on quality when it comes to bringing a good sound, and overall experience with this portable instrument.
Before being a good portable keyboard, it has to be a good keyboard, and this one is indeed a very great choice, even if you had to take away its portable capabilities.
The components themselves come from China but the instrument is built in France, which could be a selling point for many people.
There is one aspect of this keyboard that is actually a very welcome thing, which is how little noisy the keys are.
It can be a little annoying when you’re playing a keyboard and you hear the keys making other sounds than the ones it should be making, this is very present when you decide to play with headphones, and you fail to keep your surroundings silent because of this.
Other than the key noise dampening, they feel great to play and it’s one of the most important aspects of a keyboard when you’re looking to buy.
Of course, it also has all that you would expect from an instrument these days, it can easily be connected through USB to your phone or your laptop.
This gives you access to different apps and DAWs to explore new sounds while traveling.
A Portable Future
Keep in mind that this is still a very new keyboard, and while it offers so much in its early stages, there is still so much to be done from this succesful start.
One of the things to be excited about is that while it works as a controller for now, the idea is that this year a new version will be released, and will feature a battery-powered sound.
It is certainly a step in the right direction when it comes to portability without dropping the level of quality.
Piano de Voyage is definitely an easier way to play anywhere anytime.
