All KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 customers, as well as all customers who own the boxed version of Key Rig should install the latest Key Rig Updater.


Windows

The Key Rig software included with the KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 keyboards is not immediately compatible with Windows XP SP3 or Windows Vista*. The KeyRig 25 and KeyRig 49 keyboards are plug and play on Windows**. Connect the devices and Windows will install the drivers automatically.

First install the Key Rig software from the included CD; it is not necessary to run or attempt to certify Key Rig. Download and install the KeyRig Updater. This Updater is necessary for XP SP3 and Vista compatibility. It also removes the ASIO driver requirement so you can use the built-in sound card on your computer, and removes the need to certify Key Rig.

Note: If you plan on using Key Rig as a VST plug-in, you will need to copy the updated M-Audio Key Rig.dll file to your host DAW application's VST plug-ins folder. The updated M-Audio Key Rig.dll installs to C:\Program Files\M-Audio\KeyRig. Copy the "M-Audio Key Rig.dll" file; then paste this .dll file into your host DAW's VST plug-ins folder, e.g. C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VSTPlugins.
