Definition

This instrument has no acoustic properties, but relies on electronics to generate all its sounds. It can imitate existing instruments like piano, flute or guitar; natural sounds like ocean waves or wind; or create completely new sounds.

Synthesisers are normally played with a keyboard, but can also be controlled by other devices such as computers etc.
