One of the keys to becoming a better keyboard player is knowing how to use your gear! One of the most indispensable tools as a keyboard player is layering your keyboard sounds. In the video below, our lead keyboard instructor, Ryan King, will take a look at keyboard tone layering, teach you how to layer stock sounds, and show you how to use them in a worship setting.
Layering keyboard sounds can be helpful for:
Prayer breaks or talk breaks
In this video Ryan is using the Roland RD700 SX, which is simple but has the ability to combine different sounds easily. Reverb.com often has great deals on Rolands.
Worship music comes from the heart, and layering your piano sounds together can really help set the tone for prayer. Practice layering different tones and sounds to create the ideal sound and smooth transitions that make for great music, whether you’re on stage or recording at home. Layering a song with keyboard sounds can help facilitate worshipful moments and takes your playing to the next level.
