    You know, I’ve never gotten real religious about which octave is which….a
    quick look in Cubase and my Bosendorfer 290 piano library says that is
    C1…(with middle C being C3)….but on wikipedia it says middle C is C4.
    And I see other places even call middle C C5(Sonar). So whatever…just
    agree with whatever system you are working with at the time. But probably
    most commonly it’s C2, but often called C1 ^^ (like in my piano library)

    @horseracing2009 Use the black keys as a reference. Pianos and keyboards
    can have different numbers of keys, and different notes at the top and
    bottom. A note below 2 black notes is a C. Yes they repeat A-G up and down
    the keyboard 🙂

    @candypinkerswirl You can play a lot with 61 keys. It might have an octave
    shift button as well. If there are some notes that are out of range, just
    play them in a different octave or leave them out I say.

    just bought a keyboard off my friend today, was wondering if keyboards are
    capable of echos? like when i take my fingers off the keys, is there a way
    to make the note echo?
