Would you please tell me, if there are an specific idea about the difference between Hydraulous’ (water organ) and modern keyboards? I know that they existed long time ago in the Greek civilization. I wonder what was the first asymmetrical layout keyboard, and if it changed until the organ’s keyboards. The actuals, they seem too appropriate to fingering melodies, and touching any music. They seem irreplaceable. I like to know about an specific historical events. Thank you.

  • I'm not sure I understand your use of the word asymmetrical in this context. Do you mean keyboards where one end of the keyboard plays higher notes and the other end plays lower notes, like present day keyboards? If so, what's an example of a symmetrical keyboard? Also, what do you mean by "actuals"? – Todd Wilcox Aug 3 '17 at 18:37
