IK Multimedia has announced a new plugin for iRig Keys I/O that enables control surface integration for GarageBand and Logic Pro X.
Using the touch-sensitive knobs and buttons on iRig Keys I/O this allows users to control functions such as: transport control with play, record, fast-forward and rewind buttons; moving the play head forward or backward via the data knob; looping on/off by pressing the data knob, and rotary knob control of the main parameters for effects and instruments in Logic Pro X and GarageBand.
iRig Keys I/O comes with either 25 or 49 full-size keys offering a synth-action keybed and 8 multicoloured LED-lit velocity sensitive pads. For a true “hands-on” approach to controlling the most important functions of a DAW or virtual instrument, the other controls available include a volume/data push knob, 4 touch-sensitive knobs in 2 banks (acting as 8 total controls). There are also 2 fully programmable touch control strips, set by default as Pitch and Modulation controls and a complete touch sensitive transport and button section. These controls utilize the latest-generation capacitive technology for ultra-fast action and immediate feedback, displaying the related parameter value at the touch of a finger for instant reference.
Both models of iRig Keys I/O are the only controllers currently available to include 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.
iRig Keys I/O is available for 299.99 EUR/USD for the 49-key version and 199.99 EUR/USD for the 25-key version. Prices excl. taxes.
The plugin that enables the control surface integration for GarageBand and Logic Pro X is available for download to registered users free of charge in their User Area on the IK Multimedia website.
