M-Audio has released the first in its own brand of software as announced at the Winter NAMM. Key Rig, a virtual keyboard rack, and Drum and Bass Rig, a virtual bass and drums rack, are the first products of this own brand of software. Both products work in Mac and PC environments in either stand-alone mode or with most popular sequencing hosts.
Key Rig and Drum and Bass Rig are built on the same engine and therefore share some common features. The master MIDI/Mixer section of Key Rig and Drum and Bass Rig lets you route, split, layer and mix each set of four powerful modules in whatever way best suits users’ 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.
Both modules operate in stand-alone and hosted mode on Mac and PC platforms, with compatibility including AU (Mac), VST (Win/Mac) and RTAS (Win/Mac).
Key Rig and Drum and Bass Rig are now shipping at an MSRP of USD $129.95/EURO 102 each. For more information, visit their web site at www.m-audio.com or check out our product pages for more details (links below).
