MusicRadar reviews the new iRig Keys 2 Mini

IK Multimedia's smallest keyboard controller aims to be the perfect balance between functionality and portability. How well does it do? Here's what they say in MusicRadar's recent review of the iRig Keys 2 Mini.

"It's light and small enough to carry around, but not so light you'll end up pushing it around a desktop."

When positioning the iRig Keys 2 Mini in the mobile music-making landscape, the reviewers found "the keyboard is not ... the almost push-button affair that other companies have produced – it's solid and well sprung."

Comparing it to its bigger sibling the iRig Keys 2, MusicRadar noted "this more compact version offers much of the functionality of that keyboard, over a smaller footprint, with the same sized keys."

If you can live with less of them – and what's an octave versus portability – Keys 2 Mini represents a well-spec'd keyboard controller for less cash.


MusicRadar verdict: "Many of the features of its big sister – bar some keys and two dials – and for less cash. A very good control package."

We agree with our friends at MusicRadar and can only add that you also get IK's award-winning SampleTank 4 SE, featuring over 2000 cutting-edge sounds, with any iRig Keys 2 purchase.
