Key Rig from M-Audio covers all the basic needs for today’s keyboardist in a single virtual rack.

Key Rig is an universal virtual keyboard rack.

Compatible with most Mac and PC environments, Key Rig delivers four great sounding modules that can be used in stand-alone or plug-in mode. The SP-1 Stage Piano module serves up grand pianos, Wurlitzer, classic electric pianos, FM and more. The MS-2 Polyphonic Synthesizer delivers a new, easy way to call up and edit great synth sounds. The MB-3 Electromagnetic Organ emulates the classic Hammond™ sound complete with rotary speaker. And the GM-4 General MIDI Module is great for sequencing the rest of your backing tracks.

The master MIDI/Mixer section lets you route, split, layer and mix these four powerful modules in whatever way best suits your performance and recording needs. A master effects section even allows for adding a common effect in addition to the individual effect section included with each instrument.
