It’s clear from the teaser video that they’re teasing new hardware – but it’s not clear if it will be a complete standalone workstation or something that works with your computer.

  1. Considering they only wanted is to see a few inputs & outputs, a row of knobs, and some up/down arrows, I’m not that excited. The fact that it is IK doesn’t inspire much excitement either.

  2. This is backwards tech. M audio made quite a few of these. If it’s Bluetooth then I’ll bite my tongue. I’m still waiting for a Akai mpk mini Bluetooth

    1. Do you mean midi keyboards with audio interface?
      No they don’t have any of them in market.

      Or do you mean just midi keyboard?
      Every one makes them.

  3. I would never buy IK Multimedia products ever again. Their attitude is rotten to their customers. Plus, they make cheap unreliable products like that guitar irig that bled audio while recording. Please. and the iLoud was a joke with one speaker not working some of the time. Even the customers at their forum complained and IK Multimedia blamed careless handling by the customers for the problem. Oh boy.

    1. Being honest, my experience with IK wasn’t good, have the iLoud, which is quite good for a bluetooth speaker soundwise, but many issues plagued the unit. High pitched noise on high-volume, port farts, high battery drain when off and the battery failed after a couple of years. Couldn’t recommend for that.

  4. All in one production station makes me think of something like an OP-1, Octatrack, or a few other things but not really so much what might be a controller.. nothing wrong with controllers either but it’s confusing terminology.

  5. I hope its standalone and also that manufacturers realise we need plenty of audio outs. 8 as standard for sampling.

    (Wiiiiiv dual Mic in, USB in out, SD card, Sound Import, Touchscreen, USB class compliant, Battery operated).

    Dawg On the road musicians performers from Lady Gaga to Pharrell, HipHop JCole Kanye EDM Dead5aus producers beat makers be all over this : $millions sales and Kudos.

  7. I could use an iPad audio/midi interface keyboard, IF IT HAS 3 OCTAVES or more.

    Also, if touch sensing gizmos in knobs cost more, than what 1 extra knob would cost, I’d rather have 1 more knob. (6 is not good.)

    Also, the pitch and modulation ribbons better cost less, than wheels.
