Electronic Musician: "iRig Keys I/O 25 packs a heavy punch into its flyweight frame"

"Impressive audio fidelity"


"Compact, lightweight and portable.... It’s truly portable too, fitting a comparable amount of control and features into a very streamlined package."


Electronic Musician's expert reviewer, Markkus Rovito, has taken iRig Keys I/O 25, IK's new all-in-one music production station through its paces.He became very impressed in particular by its great portability and simultaneous audio fidelity.

Here are some of his key comments:

"The built-in interface addresses both a desire to simplify setups and to reduce the overall volume and weight of hardware and cables needed to get a mobile production or performance rig going."

"It’s truly portable too, fitting a comparable amount of control and features into a very streamlined package."

"For the price, the iRig Keys I/O 25’s audio interface held up very well against other 24/96 interfaces that I trust."

"Using the Alt-key, you effectively double the four capacitive, touch-sensitive knobs to eight; perfect for controlling software instruments that use the popular 8-macro paradigm."

"The full-size keys target those for whom playing matters. And even though the keys are of the unweighted synth-action kind, they play smoothly and without the springy cheapness that plagues other compact keyboards."

"From its high-quality control panel (with LED-assisted touch sliders and capacitive encoders) to its impressive audio fidelity, the iRig Keys I/O 25 packs a heavy punch into its flyweight frame."

"For an extra $100, iRig Keys I/O 49 adds two more octaves of full-size keys, two additional touch-sliders, and transport controls. It also includes a software bonus—the lush-sounding Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE orchestral workstation for Mac/Windows, and Miroslav Philharmonik 2 collection for iOS."


STRENGTHS
