HOT GEAR IK Multimedia iRig Keys I/O Keyboard Controllers IK Multimedia is now shipping the iRig Keys I/O 25 and 49 keyboard controllers, which feature a built-in audio interface. The iRig Keys I/O is designed to provide a flexible way to complete music production in the studio from start to finish using one piece of equipment. iRig Keys I/O comes with either 25 or 49 full-size keys, offering a synth-action keybed, and integrates a professional, high-definition 96 kHz/24-bit audio interface with a class A preamp, allowing users to record their instruments and microphones (including condenser mics requiring 48 V phantom power) via its combo 1/4-in./XLR input. It also provides velocity-sensitive multicoloured pads, programmable touch-sensitive sliders and buttons, and assignable knobs. When used live, the 1/4-in. balanced stereo output can be used to run the signal directly to a PA or mixer.
