Here are some quotes from the original review in German.

"... ist mit 2,2 Kilogramm angenehm leicht. Das iRig Keys I/O ist damit hervorragend transportierbar."

"Das iRig Keys I/O ist ein vollwertiges Studio für Homerecordler „out of the Box“. Im Verbund mit Computer oder iOS-Gerät und dank des üppigen Softwarepaketes ist es ein top ausgestattetes Kreativwerkzeug zum Spitzenpreis."

"Die Verarbeitung des weitestgehend aus Kunststoff gefertigten Keyboards ist tadellos, es macht einen robusten Eindruck."

"Sie sind trotz des kompakten Formates des Keyboards normalgroß und sorgen so für ein gutes Spielgefühl."

"Die Controllerfähigkeiten des iRig Keys I/O ließen kaum Wünsche offen. Es ließ sich problemlos mit der im Bundle
enthaltenen Software nutzen."

"Für Homerecordler mit kleinem Budget und wenig Platz ist das iRig Keys I/O eine echte Offenbarung. Das Keyboard ist nicht nur sehr kompakt, sondern durch das integrierte Interface spart man noch eine Menge Platz und hat auch kein Kabelgewirr auf dem Schreibtisch. Zudem enthält das iRig Keys I/O-Package alles, was ein Einsteiger sich von einem Kompakt-Studio wünschen kann. Klanglich macht das Paket ebenfalls eine gute Figur."

Plus
- integriertes Interface mit hochwertigem Klang
- umfangreiches Softwarebundle
- frei belegbare Regler für MIDI-CCs
