IK Multimedia iRig Keys Pro 37-Key Universal MIDI Keyboard Overview:
iRig Keys PRO gives you the best of both worlds. It’s a super-compact, bus-powered, “plug and play” MIDI controller that you can use anytime and anywhere. Yet despite it’s small footprint, if offers full-size, velocity-sensitive keys, allowing for a realistic playing feel.
With its 37-key (3-octave) keyboard, you can play legitimate two-handed parts. What’s more, it has loads of pro performance features that will make your creativity come alive.
iRig Keys PRO is equally useful as a portable MIDI keyboard or studio controller, and a perfect solution if you want a single keyboard to use in both situations. Connect it to your Mac or PC for use with your DAW and computer-based software instruments, and easily carry it around with you to use whenever and wherever you want with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device.
An ultra compact controller with full-size keys and pro features
For maximum playing comfort and versatility, iRig Keys PRO includes modulation and pitch-bend wheels. It’s also equipped with an expansion jack, allowing you to connect a sustain pedal for an even more realistic piano playing experience, or an expression pedal for controlling continuous parameters like volume, tremolo, vibrato, rotary speaker speed and more (pedals not included).
iRig Keys PRO features an easy-to-use control panel that gives you 5 backlit soft-touch buttons and one Volume/Data knob. You will find Program and Octave up/down buttons plus a Set button that allows you to store up to 4 different setups for the complete iRig Keys PRO configuration. An Edit mode is also available to transpose the keyboard, send specific program change messages, customize touch sensitivity, change MIDI channel, reassign Vol/Data knob MIDI control change and access to other useful MIDI functions in a flash.
All these parameters can be stored in Sets using the Set button and recalled in a snap, to allow for quick sound switching and easy control of various instruments or apps on the fly.
When it comes to portability, iRig Keys PRO is the leader in its class. Compared to 11 of its closest competitors — all compact MIDI controllers with full-size keys playable with 2 hands — iRig Keys PRO is the smallest in width and height, and among the smallest in depth. It gives you an unbeatable combination of compactness, convenience, and pro features.
In addition to being the smallest in its class, iRig Keys PRO is also the lightest. In fact, it's 20% lighter than it's lightest competitor, and almost 45% lighter than the average weight of its 11 closest competitors.
So not only is iRig Keys PRO significantly smaller than any other keyboard of its type, it's also a whole lot lighter. When it comes to portability, there's no comparison. iRig Keys PRO is the hands-down winner.
iRig Keys PRO is small and light enough to take with you almost anywhere. Because it’s bus powered — meaning it gets its power from the device it’s plugged into (iOS, Android, Mac or PC) — you don’t have to limit your music making to places where you have access AC power. Jam, produce or practice at the beach or in the woods, out in a field or at the bus stop — anywhere, really. And when you're somewhere where there is AC power, you have the option of powering iRig Keys PRO through it’s USB port.
Connect and go
iRig Keys PRO comes with lightning, USB OTG and USB cables
When we say iRig Keys PRO is “plug and play,” we’re not kidding around. Because it comes with both Lightning and OTG to Micro-USB cables, you can plug it in right out of the box, no matter whether you have an iPhone, iPad or Android device. The included USB cable lets you connect to your laptop or desktop Mac or PC. And if you want to connect to an older iOS device, all you have to do is pick up an optional 30-pin cable.
What’s more, iRig Keys PRO is Core MIDI compatible, so you don’t need to download drivers or any helper software or apps, just plug in and go. It couldn’t be easier.
