Product Description

M-Audio KeyRig 25 turns your Mac or PC into a mobile keyboard workstation. Featuring a compact 25-note USB MIDI keyboard and the award-winning Key Rig software for the PC, KeyRig 25 makes it easy to compose and perform computer-based music anywhere you want. Play Key Rig's virtual instrument sounds, or audition loops and compose songs with Pro Tools M-Powered, Ableton Live Lite (included) or other music-creation programs. The keyboard also provides an easy way to harness the power of Apple GarageBand's virtual instrument collection on your Mac. It connects via a single USB cable and works instantly with computers running Windows XP or Mac OS X. The SP-1 Stage Piano module serves up grand pianos, Wurlitzer, classic electric pianos, FM, clavinet and more. Each preset can hold a combination of two instruments with individual settings for Mix, Octave, Detune, Velocity and Tone. Owing to a dual effects section, each preset also has its own effect settings including delay, chorus, phaser and more. The MS-2 Polyphonic Synthesizer delivers a new, easy way to call up and edit great synth sounds. Each preset consists of sub-presets for each major section: filter, amp, mod and FX. Creating new sounds is as simple as combining these sub-presets in different ways and tweaking any associated parameters from there as desired. The GM-4 General MIDI Module delivers 128 GM instruments plus a great GM drum kit. It instantly plays GM-compatible standard MIDI files from host applications and provides an extremely easy way of sequencing additional backing tracks. Key Rig modules each feature their own dual effects processors for delay, chorus, phaser and more.There's also a master effects section that further processes the combined output of all modules. M-Audio's virtual racks let you use them as stand-alone instruments or with most host sequencers. Lots of people, for example, are just taking their keyboard and laptop to live perf

Customer Reviews

Contains Ableton Live Lite5 I had the item for a couple of months and never tried out the program Ableton Live Lite, because I heard the keyboard was the perfect companion for GarageBand. Even though that is true, it will work with just about any music production software, including the Ableton Live, which I started using, and so far it looks really promising. This is so much better than using the keyboard, I have to say. And the size and weight of it make it very convenient to use. You also can't beat the price. Sometime in the future, I hope to get an APC40 to go along with an upgraded version of Live 8 for my music production needs. Hope this helps. Wrongly advertised1 Although advertised to work just fine on Windows Vista, that is misleading to say the least. It comes with two sets of software that the publishers finally admitted will not work on Vista. They do insist that the keyboard itself will work on Vista, so if you can find and buy some other programs that will run on Vista, it might work. No, they didn't know which software to recommend. And the instructions on how to use the keyboard were on the non-working software, so even if you do, you would have to figure out on your own how to use it on the new software. I returned it for a refund and am waiting for repayment. Keyrig 254 The product was received on time and was in good condition. It seems to be working very well.
