|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|There are plenty of features on the Coda Pro, which make it a very versatile digital keyboard indeed. You get 88 weighted keys with hammer action, 20 built-in voices courtesy of AiR Music Technology & SONiVOX, 60 preset songs, 50 patterns, and lesson modes. You can also record your own stuff on the keyboard itself, which is a nice touch. Outputs come in the form of USB-midi and midi din, ¼ inch aux, ¼ inch headphone jack ,and there’s a stereo ¼ inch aux input. Everything you need for peripherals.||This is another digital keyboard that has been designed to emulate a grand piano as best as possible. You won’t find lesson modes and things like that, but you do get excellent weighted keys with hammer-action, along with line-level connections. Class compliant USB means you can use the Privia PX160 with your PC or Mac without drivers.|
