The new iRig Keys 2 series adds MIDI input and output so you can control stand-alone gear. When connected to a computer or mobile device, it acts as a MIDI interface for all your gear, streamlining your rig into one compact unit. It also includes a new audio/headphone out.

The iRig Keys 2 Pro offers 37 full size velocity-sensitive keys, and the iRig Keys 2 features 37 velocity-sensitive mini keys for backpack portability or use in restricted spaces. Each model comes equipped with a variety of convenient top panel performance controls plus MIDI IN/OUT for use as a stand-alone MIDI controller.

In addition to offering laptop and desktop compatibility, these ultra-slim MFi (Made For iPhone) controllers connect directly to iPhone/iPad and most Android models. They also include a dedicated audio output to connect speakers or headphones – especially useful for the owners of newer iPhone models.

For instant inspiration, a selection of powerful music-making apps is bundled with each controller, as well as an assortment of cables.

Both iRig Keys 2 models are available now for 129.99 USD/EUR (iRig Keys 2) and 149.99 USD/EUR (iRig Keys 2 Pro). Prices excluding taxes.
