The iRig Keys I/O series evolves the concept of traditional controllers as the only one available on the market that integrates 25 or 49 full sized keys together with a fully-fledged professional audio interface featuring 24-bit audio up to 96kHz sampling rate, balanced stereo and headphone outputs, plus a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input (with Phantom power).
Both iRig Keys I/O 25 and 49 are also the smallest full sized keys on the market making them the best solution for working in small spaces and ideal when it comes to having a controller for traveling musicians, in addition to the consideration that they are the only truly mobile devices that can also work on AA batteries.
Being certified Apple MFi keyboard controllers (“Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad,”) iRig Keys I/O are guaranteed to work out of the box with all iOS devices including the latest generation of iPhone 7, that does not have an audio output, thanks to the on-board audio interface. The included Lighting cable allows for straight plug-and-play with Apple iOS devices, the USB cable connects Mac and PC computers.
Plus with over $/€550 (25) and $/€750 (49) worth of IK full software and apps they include an unmatched selection of everything that is needed to make complete, finished productions out of the box like the full SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE orchestral workstation, Syntronik Pro-V vintage synthesizer, T-RackS Deluxe mix and mastering suite and more, as the ultimate music production station.
The only controller with an audio interface
Having a professional 24-bit / 96kHz capable complete audio interface built-in with iRig Keys I/O presents many advantages versus regular controllers for today’s musicians. The system becomes self-contained taking up minimal space in any situation whether on a small studio desk or when playing live and traveling. The set-up is also kept to a minimum and is as fast and easy as just plug and play. The work environment becomes clean and tidy, without a bunch of extra cables.
Take control with touch controls
Despite their ultra-compact dimension, iRIg Keys I/O include all the tactile controls you would expect from a fully-fledged controller and more. Starting with a fast synth-action key bed that improves on all preceding IK keyboards and it’s a joy to play. Both the models feature one volume/ data push knob, 4 touch sensitive knobs on 2 banks (acting as 8 total controls) and 8 multicolored, velocity sensitive pads. Plus, there are 2 fully programmable touch control strips acting by default as Pitch and Mod controls allowing for dramatic performances in any genre and double as fully programmable sliders.
Perfect for mobile, great with computer
iRig Keys I/O work universally with all types of devices whether mobile, laptop or regular desktop computer. They are ideal for iPhone and iPad thanks to the included Lighting cable connections and certified MFi compatibility. Additionally, they offer more iOS friendly features that can’t be found with any other controller like the included mobile device stand and the possibility to keep the device charged during long playing session using an optional power supply adapter, and of course the included audio interface that makes them perfect when used with the latest generation iPhone 7 that lacks a mini jack audio output.
Full professional software ready to go
iRig Keys I/O comes with the largest selection of software and apps amongst any comparable controller. While reduced or light versions of software are generally bundled with other controllers, iRig Keys I/O includes a staggering quantity and value of full software. Starting with the full version of SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation, T-RackS 4 Deluxe mix and mastering suite, Syntronik Pro-V vintage synthesizer and Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE* orchestral workstation for Mac/PC, iRig Keys IO includes 13 full plug-ins (3 instruments and 10 dynamic and EQ audio processors), over 5,000 sounds and 43 GB of samples, that is roughly ten times more than the closest competitor.
Plus, for iPhone and iPad users the full version of SampleTank and Miroslav Philharmonik Mobile Edition collection* are also included for a staggering value of $/€750 (49 keys version) and over $/€550 (25 keys version.) Just add your preferred DAW or a powerful free composing tool like GarageBand and make entire compositions in any music style (acoustic, electric, electronic) and any genre right out of the box.

I pre-ordered this keyboard from Sam Ash and finally received it 11/22. To my great disappointment, it doesn't work with either of my iOS devices. I tried to contact IK Multimedia for support, but there is no way to contact them by phone or email. I did submit a support ticket, but no response so far. The reason I bought from Sam Ash is exactly because of my previous experience with IK support, which has not been goo. Honestly, even if they do eventually respond, a ticket system is not a good way to support a product like this anyway - an interactive phone conversation is needed.
With that reality in mind, I then tried to get help from Sam Ash. I was able to get a real person on the phone, but that person told me that Sam Ash does not offer phone support. If I can't get help from the manufacturer or the dealer, then my only remaining option will be to return the product for a refund. Lesson learned.
For what it's worth, the keyboard works fine with my PC, so it's not defective, as such. I think it's also worth mentioning that the keyboard draws too much power to run off of the iOS device bus. I was expecting the same seamless integration that I have enjoyed with the iRig Keys Pro 37, where all you have to do is plug it in and it works perfectly, with no external power requirements.
The Keys I/O 49 (apparently) requires batteries or an external power supply to work with an iOS device, neither or which is included in the package. I did install batteries, and it now lights up when I connect an iOS device, but nothing happens when I press the keys. Zilch. Very frustrating.
