iRig Keys is the first ultra-slim and highly portable universal MIDI controller keyboard for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android and Mac/PC. iRig Keys connects directly to your iOS device via the included Lightning connector, to your Android device via the included OTG to Micro-USB cable and to your Mac/PC via the included USB cable.
It can also connect to older iOS devices via an optional 30-pin cable.
It features 37 velocity-sensitive mini-keys — a full 3-octave range plus one note — takes up minimal space on your desktop and can easily fit in a backpack or a carry-on bag.
iRig Keys is MIDI and USB class compliant for a true plug-and-play experience both with iOS and Android devices as well as Mac/PC. No additional apps, software or drivers are necessary to get it up and running.
For total mobility, iRig Keys is also an ultra-low power consumption unit. When hooked up to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, it can be powered by the device, and for longer playing sessions it can be powered by the available USB port. When connected to a Mac/PC, the USB port powers it.
iRig Keys is the ultimate portable companion for keyboard players and producers. Use it any time and anywhere inspiration strikes you... simply hook it up to your device or computer and start playing.
You can use iRig Keys for live performance, for songwriting and composition with the included apps and software, or with a multitude of other MIDI-compatible instruments and recorders on iOS, Android, Mac OS X and Windows.
