IK Multimedia has introduced iRig Keys I/O, their new keyboard controller range featuring a built-in audio interface, which they’re calling “The all-in-one music production station that goes anywhere you want”…
It comes in two varieties; 25-key or 49-key and promises to be an extremely impressive piece of kit when it arrives in October 2017.
Boasting great portability, the iRig Keys I/O also works out of the box with all iOS devices with a lightning port so you can create from the word go. There’s also over $/€550 (in the 25-key version) and $€750 (in the 49-key version) worth of IK software and apps. You’ll also find Ableton® Live 9 Lite™ digital audio workstation, SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation with over 43GB and 5000 sounds, T-RackS 4 Deluxe mix and mastering suite with 9 EQ and dynamics processors, and the Syntronik Pro-V vintage synthesizer.
Plus, iPhone and iPad users receive the full version of SampleTank. Additionally, the 49-key version comes with Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE orchestral workstation for Mac/PC and the mobile edition for iOS.
