IK Multimedia has announced that iRig Keys I/O, the keyboard controllers with 25 or 49 full-size keys for iOS, Mac and PC, with built-in high definition audio input/output and a large software bundle, are now available worldwide.
iRig Keys I/O features a 96kHz/24-bit capable audio interface including a Class A preamp with combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input including phantom power, 1/4" balanced stereo outputs and a high quality 1/8" headphone output ideal for use with the latest iPhone.
Including all the controls users would expect from a premium keyboard, iRig Keys I/O has 8 velocity sensitive multicolored pads and 2 programmable touch-sensitive sliders along with touch sensitive transport buttons and knobs in an ultra-portable package that is a snap to connect and set up.
IK says "both iRig Keys I/O 25 and 49 are the smallest and lightest full sized keys on the market making them the best 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 are mobile devices that can also work on AA batteries.
For added convenience there are travel bags, available separately, for carrying the 25 key and 49 key versions of iRig Keys I/O. For recording vocals on the go, iRig Keys I/O Mic (sold separately), is a gooseneck condenser microphone that plugs directly into the input jack eliminating the need for a stand.
Being Apple certified MFi keyboard controllers ("Made for iPhone and iPad"), iRig Keys I/O will work out of the box with all iOS devices with a Lightning port including the latest generation iPhone. The included USB cable provides a simple connection to Mac and PC computers.
With an large selection of IK software and apps along with Ableton Live 9 Lite, everything needed to make complete finished creations out of the box is included like the full SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation, Syntronik Pro-V vintage synthesizer, T-RackS Deluxe mix and mastering suite and more, as a powerful music production station.
