When iRig KEYS PRO is in Edit mode, the user can set the MIDI transmit channel, velocity (touch) response, assign Control Change numbers to the Volume/Data knob, send custom Program Change messages, transpose the keyboard in semi-tones and more. iRig KEYS PRO is also right at home in the studio, and works seamlessly with DAW software, including GarageBand, Logic Pro and many others.

iRig KEYS PRO features

  • 37 velocity-sensitive full-sized keys (a 3 full octaves range plus one note).
  • Modulation and pitch bend wheels.
  • Volume/Data knob (assignable).
  • Octave/Program Up/Down back-lit, soft-touch buttons.
  • SET button to store and recall 4 different customized setups.
