IK Multimedia has announced that the iRig Keys I/O 25 keyboard controller/audio interface is available in Apple Retail Stores around the globe. They say that, in addition to offering laptop and desktop compatibility, the iRig Keys I/O 25 is ideal for iPhone and iPad, thanks to the included Lighting cable connections and certified MFi compatibility. It now also features full support for Apple's MainStage 3 performance app. Here’s the details in IK Multimedia’s own words…
The only controller with a pro audio interface
The iRig Keys I/O 25 all-in-one music production station evolves the concept of traditional controllers with a unique design that integrates 25 full-sized keys with a full-fledged professional audio interface featuring 24-bit audio up to 96kHz sampling rate, balanced stereo and headphone outputs, plus a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input (with phantom power). Over $/€550 worth of IK's professional software and creative apps is included, delivering an unmatched selection of everything needed to make complete music productions out of the box.
Create and perform with GarageBand, Logic and MainStage
For instant and easy control, iRig Keys I/O 25 offers dedicated scenes that integrate with Apple's Logic Pro and GarageBand music creation DAWs. It now also offers a scene for Apple's MainStage 3 app that enables the controller's drum pads to be used to conveniently recall the first eight scenes in MainStage during a live performance.
Expert-level integration with tutorials
To demonstrate how well iRig Keys I/O integrates with Apple's music creation software, IK worked with Eli Krantzberg and Doug Zanger of Logic Pro Expert to create a series of videos showing how to set up and use these solutions together. Eli Krantzberg is the editor of Logic Pro Expert and author at Groove3, and Doug is a contributor to Logic Pro Expert and an Apple Certified Pro.
