Programming and expansion
iRig KEYS PRO also has powerful programming features that are useful during live performance and in the studio. Players can program iRig KEYS PRO with different set-ups and store them in one of the 4 “Set” banks.

Don’t forget the pedals.

Plug and Play, Literally

As advertised, the keyboard has a pretty big range for iOS and OS compatibility; for me, my iPhone and iPad still use iOS 7, my iPod on iOS 5, and my Mac on OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 and they all worked great.
Concerning the apps included with the keyboard, I've only briefly tried them, but they were fairly self-explanatory and worked without a hitch, just like when I used the keyboard with GarageBand.
Essentially, the keyboard works exactly how the specs are laid out, key sensitivity, software, and all.
P.s. In case anyone was wondering, a pedal is not included. …
