The iKeyboard 5 has all the controls you need right at your fingertips. The Icon iKeyboard 5 combines a four-octave piano keyboard with a single channel DAW controller in a rugged metal enclosure. Unlike many keyboard controllers with small plastic keys, this piano keyboard was specially designed by Icon with great attention to detail. The full sized keys are semi-weighted to provide realistic piano action. Touch strips provided for pitch bend and modulation.
