IK Multimedia has announced that its previously announced iRig Keys I/O, the revolutionary keyboard controller range featuring a built-in audio interface, is now shipping worldwide.

IK Multimedia iRig Keys IO

The iRig® Keys I/O series evolves the concept of traditional controllers as the only one available on the market that integrates 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.)

iRig Keys I/O is much more than just a simple controller, it is a true studio centrepiece providing users with a flexible way to complete their music productions from start to end using a single piece of equipment that is unmatched for speed and simplicity of use.

iRig Keys I/O comes with either 25 or 49 full-size keys offering a synth-action keybed and integrates a professional, high-definition 96kHz/24-bit audio interface with a high-performance Class A preamp allowing users to record their instruments and microphones (including condenser mics requiring 48V phantom power) via its convenient combo 1/4″/XLR input.

Plus, it provides all the creative controls expected from a premium keyboard controller such as velocity sensitive, multicoloured pads, programmable touch-sensitive sliders, buttons and assignable knobs.
