IK Multimedia has announced that iRig Keys I/O, an ultra-compact and lightweight controller with full-size velocity sensitive keys with high definition audio input/output, a software bundle and compatibility with iOS, Mac and PC, is now open for pre-order.
IK say that iRig Keys I/O is the only keyboard controller currently available with either 25 or 49 full-size velocity sensitive keys that integrates a professional audio interface featuring 24-bit audio up to 96kHz sampling rate, a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input with phantom power, balanced stereo output and a high quality 1/8" headphone output ideal for use with the latest Apple devices like the iPhone 7.
iRig Keys I/O has 8 velocity sensitive multicolored pads and 2 programmable touch-sensitive sliders along with touch sensitive buttons and knobs in an ultra-portable package that is a snap to connect and set up.
IK says iRig Keys I/O 25 and 49 are the smallest full sized keys on the market making them a great solution for working in small spaces and for traveling musicians. In addition to running on USB power or an optional power supply (that can simultaneously charge an iPhone or iPad), they can also work on AA batteries.
