A master keyboard or controller keyboard is a keyboard which itself produces no sound, but sends MIDI note data electronically to an external sound module, other keyboards, or even a computer.

The main advantages of these keyboards are their low weight and price. It’s the ideal keyboard for music education software or software synthesizer.
