IK Multimedia iRig KEYS PRO Mobile Keyboard Controller

Product Information

  • Overview

    IK Multimedia's iRig KEYS PRO is a truly compact, bus-powered “plug and play” MIDI controller you can use anywhere with your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac. Yet despite its space-saving design, iRig KEYS PRO offers 37 full-size, velocity-sensitive keys that give you a realistic playing feel and the ability to play legitimate two-handed parts. This keyboard also has a wide variety of pro performance features, and comes with cables (Lightning and 30-pin) and software for your iOS devices and your Mac.

    Comfort and versatility

    iRig KEYS PRO includes modulation and pitch-bend wheels. It also offers an expansion jack, so you can 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).

    Control at your fingertips

    The easy-to-use control panel includes five backlit soft-touch buttons and a Volume/Data knob. You also get Program and Octave up/down buttons, plus an Edit mode for transposing the keyboard, sending specific programming change messages, customizing touch sensitivity, changing MIDI channel, reassigning Vol/Data knob MIDI control change, and accessing other useful MIDI functions in a flash. You can store all these parameters using the Set button and then recall them on the fly.

    Make music anywhere

    iRig KEYS PRO is small and light, and because it’s bus powered—meaning it gets its power from your iOS device or Mac—you don’t have to limit your music making to places where there's access to power. Jam, produce, or practice wherever the mood strikes. Compared to other MIDI controllers with full-size keys, iRig KEYS PRO is at least 30% smaller while still offering three full octaves of keys.

    A wealth of apps

    On your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, iRig KEYS PRO is compatible with hundreds of apps, including IK’s SampleTank, iGrand Piano, and iLectric apps, which deliver wide-ranging sounds and features. Thanks to built-in Core MIDI support, iRig KEYS PRO also works with GarageBand and hundreds of other music creation and practice/learning apps.

    Studio ready

    iRig KEYS PRO can also work in the studio with your Mac through its USB port. This allows you to connect to and control a multitude of software DAWs or virtual instruments, including GarageBand, Logic, and Pro Tools. KEYS PRO even includes SampleTank 2 L, free, delivering a powerful virtual instrument with over 2GB of sounds. Run it as a stand-alone performance machine or as a plug-in inside your favorite software.

    SampleTank 2 L the Mac/PC sample workstation, available both as a stand-alone and as a plug-in for most popular DAW (including GarageBand and Logic) with 2 GB of samples in every instruments category.

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.
