Key Rig Virtual Instrument Software
Key Rig does not require additional MIDI input configuration when running
in standalone mode. Instead, the software automatically receives MIDI data
messages from your KeyRig 49 USB keyboard and from every other MIDI
interface installed on the system. No MIDI input configuration in necessary.
When running Key Rig as a plug-in, your host application's MIDI input settings
determine the MIDI information received by Key Rig. Please consult your host
application's documentation for more information on MIDI routing.
When using the Key Rig software in standalone mode, be sure to select your
ASIO-compatible sound card and output channels from the pull down menu at
the top of Key Rig's screen as shown below.

Third Party Software Configuration

With the KeyRig 49 keyboard properly installed, any MIDI capable software
application on the same system should recognize KeyRig 49 as a new MIDI
input device. To use the KeyRig 49 keyboard with your software, you may need
to configure the software to read MIDI data being sent from KeyRig 49. This
often entails going into the Options or Device Setup menu in your music software
application and selecting "KeyRig 49 In" or "USB Audio Device" as the MIDI
input. In Windows XP, KeyRig 49 will appear as "USB Audio Device" if the
optional drivers have not been installed. After installing these drivers, KeyRig 49
will appear as "KeyRig 49 In. " Please consult your software's documentation for
instructions on how to configure the software for use with MIDI input devices.
