A total music production system in a controller

The iRig Keys I/O series evolves the concept of traditional controllers by integrating 25 or 49 full sized keys together with a fully-fledged professional audio interface featuring 24-bit audio up to 96kHz sampling rate, balanced stereo and headphone outputs, plus a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input (with Phantom power.) 

Together with an audio interface, iRig Keys I/O also packs all the controls you would expect from a premium controller including one volume/data push knob, 4 touch sensitive knobs on 2 banks (acting as 8 total controls) and 8 multi-coloured, velocity sensitive pads. Plus, there are 2 fully programmable touch control strips acting by default as Pitch and Mod controls allowing for dramatic performances in any genre and double as fully programmable sliders. A complete touch sensitive transport and button control section rounds out the controls available. All knobs, sliders and buttons are touch-sensitive using capacitive technology for ultra-fast action and immediate feedback, displaying the related parameter value just with a simple touch. With the smallest full sized keys on the market, the iRig Keys I/O is the best solution for working in small spaces and ideal when it comes to having a controller for traveling musicians.

Full professional software ready to go

iRig Keys I/O comes with the largest selection of software and apps amongst any comparable controller. While reduced or light versions of software are generally bundled with other controllers, iRig Keys I/O includes a staggering quantity and value of full software. Starting with the full version of SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation, T-RackS 4 Deluxe mix and mastering suite, Syntronik Pro-V vintage synthesizer and Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE orchestral workstation for Mac/PC, iRig Keys IO includes 13 full plug-ins (3 instruments and 10 dynamic and EQ audio processors), over 5,000 sounds and 43 GB of samples, that is roughly ten times more than the closest competitor. Plus, for iPhone and iPad users the full version of SampleTank, Syntronik Pro-V and Miroslav Philharmonik 2 collection are also included in the iRig Keys I/O 49 version.

DAW-ready of out the box

Works right out of the box with popular Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software like Ableton Live, Studio One, GarageBand and Logic. iRig Keys I/O is the plug-and-play production solution that sets up easily taking the time and worry out of configuring multiple devices, simplifying your setup and allowing for more focus on creativity.

Having a professional 24-bit / 96kHz capable complete audio interface built-in with iRig Keys I/O presents many advantages versus regular controllers for today's musicians. The system becomes self-contained taking up minimal space in any situation whether on a small studio desk or when playing live and traveling. The set-up is also kept to a minimum and is as fast and easy as just plug and play. The work environment becomes clean and tidy, without a bunch of extra cables.
