I would like to
- learn the Piano and
- make beats.
I searched on the web for a while and read about Digital Pianos and USB/MIDI Controller Keyboards. I thought about buying a Controller Keyboard.
But I am still not sure whether it serves my needs to learn the piano. I mean, is it possible to use these USB/MIDI Controller Keyboards without a Music Production Software like FL Studio? I mean like turning on the PC, striking a key, and hearing a sound? Of course, it would be cool to have it working without a PC turned on at the same time, but as far as I know, this is not possible for a Controller Keyboard.
I also want to plug in my headphones to not disturb anyone and am not sure whether this is possible with Controller Keyboards.
Or am I looking for the wrong hardware?
Thanks in advance!
