M-Audio's Slim-line MIDI controller now in 25 keys 24/09/07
The Key Rig 25 range features 25 keys, eight knobs, eight buttons and a single fader. Itâ€™s somewhat reminiscent of the Oxygen8, but features a half action slimmer keyboard to make it even more compact. In addition it comes bundled with M-Audioâ€™s Key Rig software, a virtual rack of software instruments: SP-1 Stage Piano, MS-2 Polyphonic Synthesizer, MB-3 Tone Wheel Organ and GM-4 General MIDI Module.
The KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 reinforce M-Audioâ€™s mission of empowering more and more people to make music,â€� says Adam Castillo, marketing director at M-Audio. â€œThe KeyRig 25 offers a familiar form factor similar to our ground-breaking Oxygen 8 keyboard, while the KeyRig 49 continues on the path of our best-selling Keystation 49e. The addition of the Key Rig software bundle makes these offerings even more powerful for PC users.â€�
Both keyboards are currently shipping. The KeyRig 25 retails in the UK for an MSRP of Â£69; the KeyRig49 retails in the UK for an MSRP of Â£79.
