The main difference between a piano (a standard acoustic piano) and a digital piano is the mechanism that produces the sound.The acoustic piano produces sounds by channeling the power of the fingers pressing the keys into the hammers, which strike the strings. The vibrations produced by striking the strings are transmitted to the soundboard, and diffused richly, which amplifies the sound.
Digital pianos are equipped with hammers, though. These are not for the purpose of striking the strings, as with an acoustic piano, but instead are employed to capture the dynamics with which the key is played, yielding a dynamic response to touch that more closely approximates the experience of playing an acoustic piano. Digital Pianos as the name says run by power supply.
What do people prefer and why ?
To explain in one line digital pianos produces good sound with low maintenance whereas acoustic piano produces more natural sound but need regular maintenance
8 Focusrite Mic-pres with built in 24/96 ADAT Output, JetPLL
The best sounding multi-channel mic pre in its class.
Make the most of your interface’s ADAT input. OctoPre MkII connects via its built-in Lightpipe output, with a ‘real world’ dynamic range performance of 110dB.
OctoPre MkII is designed not to clip, with preamps optimised to handle extreme levels from sound sources like kick drum and snare.
OctoPre MkII’s first two channels feature DI’s, ready for you to plug in your guitars and bass, instantly accessible on the front fascia.
OctoPre MkII’s fast-acting 5-LED input meters provide clear reference of input levels, helping you to avoid analogue or digital clipping.
OctoPre MkII is drum-ready, with 10dB pads to stop hot signals from overdriving the microphone preamp.
For routing and flexibility, especially in the live environment. Each mic pre can be routed to the mixer’s analogue channels, with two mirrored ADAT outputs (44.1) left free to send to digital recorders.
Switched in two groups (1-4 and 5-8) every channel is capable of supplying phantom power, for use with most condenser microphones.
OctoPre MkII's internal clock delivers a jitter performance of < 10 PPM. For external clocks, a BNC connector is provided and industry-standard JetPLL™ jitter elimination technology is employed.
*Note that when running at 44.1 or 48kHz, the digital outputs are mirrored, providing outputs 1 - 8 on both ports.
