• Keyboard Learning
    made easy

And as time goes by routine comes

nimbu supports you with special graphical functions for keyboard learning. The solid musical basis makes it possible. And if you have any problems, we are here to help you with our support.

    To play an instrument is one of the most wonderful experiences. But for every song you have to practice striking the right keys at the right time. But that's where the appeal lies. Once you have mastered it, you make music yourself. Music where you can give your all. A moving experience. This is all the more true when you play with the auto accompaniment system, with which you control an entire band. The auto accompaniment is ideal for newcomers, as there is no need to play an accompaniment rhythm.

If you practice with a title-related accompaniment, nimbu has all the information to support you in keyboard learning. In the structured User Interface you will find many functions that will help you to make progress. Here are some examples (with indication) of the register in the user interface:

  • nimbu gets along completely without notes. All music is displayed on a timeline in events. In this synchronized display, you can literally see the progress of your music (Start Tab - Instruments and Tracks). If the events move up, you move to the right on the keyboard. You will automatically learn to read the musical notation over time. If the MIDI file deviates from your notes, you transpose the entire MIDI import until the melody notes match (MIDI Import Tab - All Tracks -  +1 / -1 Semitone).
  • You first practice at a lower tempo, which you simply set (Play Tab - Play - Tempo BPM).
  • The single-finger automatic is very catchy thanks to the fingering of the fundamental plus chord type. The usual limitation to major and minor chords including their seventh chords is practically eliminated by the free definition of two additional chord types per section, so that you can play everything even with the single-finger automatic (Control Tab - Playing Chords - Chord Recognition - Single Finger).
    But we would advise you to start with chords from the beginning, because you will learn the correct chord fingering at the same time. But also here nimbu offers you the option to play with simplified three voiced chords first (Control Tab- Playing Chords - Chord Recognition - 3 voiced).
  • nimbu shows you the fingerings of all resolved chords (Control Tab - Playing Chords - Chord Display). And this is depending on the chord recognition set. If your leadsheets only contain chord symbols, you can look them up here. You can also press the chords or their inversions on the keyboard, and nimbu will immediately show you the chord symbol on the chord display.
  • Depending on the selected chord recognition, nimbu will show you the keys to play while playing. Also the keys of the melody to be played (Features Tab - Keyboards - Demo).
  • And if it still doesn't succeed at a certain point, you start from a certain bar in order to practise this point (Play Tab - Play - Start at Bar).
  • nimbu even draws your played events in real time under the events to be played (Play Tab - Recording and Features Tab - Practice). While playing, you can see immediately where your attacks are too early or too late, or where you play notes too long. Breaks are also music. You can also analyze this recording after playing.
  • But there is more. nimbu shows you on a time axis with time signatures which chord is to be played when (Control Tab - Control via Setup - Event Track). You can see exactly when which chord is coming when you are playing.
  • You can also note in nimbu which chords you want to play with which inversion so that it works well with the fingering. The transitions of the chords are then displayed while playing (Features Tab - Keyboards - Fingering). The display is done on 3 adjacent keyboards for the previous chord, the currently played chord and the next chord.
  • In addition, nimbu plays you melody and accompaniment to give you an impression of your instrument setup (Play Tab - Select Instruments, Tracks and Keyboard Areas for Playing). You can practice the chords and let nimbu play the melody or vice versa, practice the melody while nimbu is playing the accompaniment.
  • You can adjust your instrument setup in real time while nimbu is playing. This way you can hear every change you make immediately (Setup Tab - Instruments).

At some point, you won't need all this because you can play. You have done it and you play absolutely freely, putting all your power into the music. What an experience, what fun !

What really sets nimbu apart is the full supply of tones. If you feel like it, you learn relatively quickly how music is structured and how it works. Over time you will recognize the musicality of an accompaniment and do not fall for the temptation to overplay usual deficits of auto accompaniment with all kinds of gimmicks.

You and your listeners will be amazed at what skills you have. Maybe you will even develop your own ideas or have fun improvising over time.
