Firmware updater for iRig Keys I/O

Use the Firmware updater to update the firmware on your iRig Keys I/O to the latest version.

The Firmware updater automatically detects any iRig Keys I/O connected to your Mac or PC and updates the firmware, if an update is available.

Follow these steps to update the firmware:

  1. Register iRig Keys I/O to your IK User account if you haven’t already. Registration provides you with access to the Firmware updater.
  2. Once registered, go to the "Firmware Updates" section of your User Area on your computer and download the IK Multimedia Firmware updater for Mac or PC.
  3. Plug iRig Keys I/O into a free USB port on your Mac or Windows computer.
  4. Launch the IK Multimedia Firmware updater. The updater will automatically find the connected device.
  5. Select the IK Multimedia hardware product you would like to update and click on the update button.

NOTE: Do not unplug your iRig Keys I/O while the updater is running. Doing so may result in permanent damage to the product.

NOTE: The first time you power up your unit after the firmware update completes, this may take longer than usual. This is normal behavior.

The Firmware Updater requires OS X 10.7 / Windows 7 or later.

Please contact the IK Multimedia support service in case you need assistance.
