[NAMM] Line 6 Mobile Keys 25 & 49
Line 6 is introducing Mobile Keys keyboard controller for iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC.
Mobile Keys 25 and Mobile Keys 49 are a pair of new portable keyboards designed to control iOS music apps and do double duty as USB MIDI controllers for Mac and Windows computers. Both models have full-size keys and solid keyboard action. The keys are velocity sensitive, designed to allow them to interpret the nuances and subtleties of a keyboardist’s playing. Both Mobile Keys models are compatible with any iOS app that supports the CoreMIDI standard for input, including GarageBand and various drum machines, synthesizers and virtual instruments.
The keyboards require no additional hardware to function—they plug into an iOS device’s dock connector. They’re bus powered, so they need no external power supply or batteries. The two keyboards are equipped with pitch bend and modulation wheels for additional sonic control, and they also have a pair of 1/4-inch TRS jacks for plugging in sustain and expression pedals. Both keyboards also have USB jacks and are USB class-compliant, allowing connection with Mac and Windows desktop and laptop computers.
