M-Audio Releases KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 Keyboard Controllers
M-Audio has released the KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 keyboard controllers. Each come bundled with M-Audioâ€™s Key Rig software, a virtual studio rack, so users can get right to business.
The KeyRig 25 features a slim, 25-note keyboard with half-depth action, along with eight MIDI-assignable knobs and buttons. M-Audio claims it is a great portable solution for programming, recording and triggering tracks, loops and virtual instruments sounds. The KeyRig 49 features a 49-note, synth-action keyboard designed for users who want a more traditional approach to keyboard playing.
Both keyboards also include professional features like pitch bend and modulation controls, an assignable volume slider, octave +/- buttons and sustain pedal input. The units are powered from the computer via a single USB cable and work right out of the box with Windows XP and Mac OS X systemsâ€”no driver installation needed.
Both configurations feature M-Audioâ€™s award-winning Key Rig software (PC only), a single virtual rack that delivers four great-sounding modules for stand-alone or plug-in use: SP-1 Stage Piano, MS-2 Polyphonic Synthesizer, MB-3 Tone Wheel Organ and GM-4 General MIDI Module. The master section allows users to route, split, layer and mix these four powerful modules in whatever way best suits their performance and recording needs. A master effects section also provides for adding a common effect in addition to the individual effect section included with each instrument.
M-Audio’s KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 are available now for $129.95. More information on M-Audio’s KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49.
