IK Multimedia releases iRig Keys I/O 25 and 49 keyboard controllers

iRig Keys I/O is the only keyboard controller range currently available on the market to feature an integrated professional 96kHz/24-bit audio interface.

IK Multimedia has introduced the iRig Keys I/O, a keyboard controller range featuring a built-in audio interface.

The new iRig Keys I/O is shipping worldwide now and promises to be “much more than just a simple controller”.

“It is a true studio centrepiece providing users with a flexible way to complete their music productions from start to end using a single piece of equipment that is unmatched for speed and simplicity of use,” said IK Multimedia.

iRig Keys I/O comes with either 25 or 49 full-size keys offering a synth-action keybed and integrates a professional, high-definition 96kHz/24-bit audio interface with a high-performance Class A preamp, allowing users to record their instruments and microphones (including condenser mics requiring 48V phantom power) via its combo 1/4"/XLR input.

Plus, iRig Keys provides all the creative controls expected from a premium keyboard controller, such as velocity sensitive, multicoloured pads, programmable touch-sensitive sliders, buttons and assignable knobs.

iRig Keys I/O is the only keyboard controller range currently available on the market to feature an integrated professional 96kHz/24-bit audio interface. The intelligent layout makes it possible to keep all cabling to a minimum and makes setting up fast and easy.

The combo input sports a high-quality Class A preamp and accepts both 1/4" and XLR sources including dynamic and condenser microphones (with 48V phantom power), line instruments, guitars and basses. When used live, the 1/4" balanced stereo output can be used to run the signal directly to a PA or mixer.

Both models feature a fast synth-action keybed, a volume/data push knob, 4 touch-sensitive knobs in 2 banks (acting as 8 total controls) and 8 multicoloured LED-lit velocity sensitive pads.

There are also 2 fully programmable touch control strips, set by default as Pitch and Modulation controls and a complete touch sensitive transport and button section, for a true "hands-on" approach to controlling all the most important functions of a DAW or virtual instrument.

iRig Keys I/O is available from the IK Multimedia online store and IK authorised dealers worldwide for €299.99 for the 49-key version and €199.99 for the 25-key version.

In addition to the massive bundle of included software, iRig Keys I/O comes with 4 x AA batteries, Mini-DIN to USB and Mini-DIN to Lightning cables and a device stand for iPhone and iPad.
