A MIDI keyboard or MIDI controller is a keyboard-shaped instrument that sends MIDI signals (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) to external sound modules, mainly to the music production software or DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) that we will use to work.
MIDI keyboards DO NOT contain or emit any kind of sounds by themselves unlike synthesizers. To explain ourselves better: a MIDI keyboard is the equipment that we will use, in the form of a keyboard, to reproduce the sounds of the virtual instruments included in the DAW (VST).
Having a MIDI keyboard is not mandatory to produce music since you can do it directly with the computer keyboard and the mouse, but you will notice that it is much more complicated than using the controller. In addition, using the keyboard will help you to acquire notions about music theory, which will help you when making your tracks.
