A virtuoso musician and co-writer of massive hits like Asia's "Heat of the Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell" Geoff is also known for using lots of keyboard instruments and vintage gear both on stage and in his studio in the UK. But, now with products like iRig Keys I/O and IK's latest synth anthology virtual instrument Syntronik, Geoff is happy he can take so many classic keyboard sounds with him anywhere he goes. He's currently on the road with recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Yes, celebrating their 50th Anniversary.

Here's what Geoff has to say about iRig Keys I/O:

"I got iRig Keys Pro a while ago and it has been an invaluable road companion ever since. But, now IK Multimedia has taken the portable studio/keyboard to another level. The iRig Keys I/O is my new favorite keyboard to travel with. It's packed with so many useful features including a full 4-octave keyboard and input for voice or guitar ideal for writing and recording while on the road with stereo quarter inch outputs ideal for use on stage. iRig Keys I/O is an amazing piece of kit! Just plug in to your laptop and you have very your own mobile studio!"
