IK Multimedia Announces the iRig Keys Mini Keyboard Controller

Known for its popular line of iRig portable guitar interfaces, as well as the widely used AmpliTube guitar amp modeling software, IK Multimedia has just announced a new addition to its line of MIDI keyboard controllers in the form of the iRig Keys Mini. Continuing the effort to deliver powerful, yet highly portable musical tools, the iRig Keys Mini packs a full feature set into an enclosure that fits in your laptop bag or backpack. The controller is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Windows.

The iRig Keys Mini features 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keys and two back-lit Octave-Up/ Down buttons. It’s also fitted with a MIDI assignable Volume/Data knob, great for taking hands-on control of track volume, or automating soft-synth and mixing plug-in parameters. 

In addition to portability and control, the iRig Keys Mini also includes a powerful software suite, including SampleTank 3 FREE, a free version of SampleTank, the company’s versatile sample-based sound-and-groove workstation. Featuring an assortment of instrument sounds, loop and groove management tools, and effects, SampleTank 3 FREE provides a great starting point for building your sound library. In addition, the package comes with iGrand Piano FREE, a realistic piano instrument for iOS devices that’s based on stereo multi-samples of actual pianos.

The iRig Keys Mini is a USB bus-powered device, and the package includes Lightning and USB cables. Also, if you have an older iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, an optional 30-pin cable can be purchased separately.
