iRig Keys I/O shines in MusicRadar's round-up of the best USB MIDI controller keyboards: "A solid production setup, combining MIDI control and audio interfacing with a knockout software bundle."
Following their recent round-ups of the world's best audio interfaces, monitor speakers and pad controllers, MusicRadar are now looking at keyboards with "The best USB MIDI controller keyboards: Our favourite laptop, desktop and iOS Keyboards", and this year iRig Keys I/O 49 earns its place in this select group of winners. Here are some of the comments from their review earlier this year:
"A solid production setup, combining MIDI control and audio interfacing with a knockout software bundle."
"The onboard audio interface operates at up to 24-bit/96kHz, and sounds good doing it."
"The iRig Keys I/O 49 is a great success."
"In terms of value for money, the iRig Keys I/O is a pretty good deal on its own, but IK has sweetened the pot big time by throwing in €750 worth of software."
With a final verdict of:
"It’s small enough to find a space on even the most hectic of studio desks, equipped to handle basic recording duties and general purpose MIDI control on stage and in the studio, and comparatively good value, particularly if the excellent bundled software appeals."
+ For MIDI control and audio I/O in one
+ Mac, PC and iOS compatibility
+ Impressive bundled software
+ Tablet stand included
