Using KeyRig 25
In many cases, once KeyRig 25 has been installed, you can simply launch your music program and begin making music right away. Many programs (including Ableton Live Lite, M-Audio Key Rig Virtual Instrument, or Apple GarageBand) are ready out of the box and require no further conguration. Certain other programs may require you to select KeyRig 25 as a MIDI input source or to map KeyRigs assignable MIDI controls (buttons, knobs, sliders, etc.) to whatever on-screen functions you would like to control. These steps are described further below.
Conguring Your Software:
Once the KeyRig 25 keyboard is installed on your computer, all MIDI capable applications on your system should recognize the controller as a new MIDI input device. However, some applications may require you to congure the software to accept MIDI data being sent from the KeyRig 25 keyboard. This is usually done through a Control Panel or Device Setup menu in your application, but the specic process varies from program to program. Please consult your applications documentation to learn how to select MIDI input devices. NOTE: In Windows XP, KeyRig 25 will appear as USB Audio Device to your music software if the optional M-Audio drivers have not been installed. This is normal. If the M-Audio drivers have been installed, KeyRig 25 will appear like USB O2 In.
Assigning KeyRig 25s Buttons, Knobs, or Sliders to Control Your Software:
The KeyRig 25 keyboard has a number of assignable MIDI controls (knobs, buttons, sliders, etc.) that can be used to control your music software. Each assignable control has its own unique MIDI Continuous Controller (CC) number. When you turn a knob, push a button, or move a fader, KeyRig 25 sends out MIDI CC data that is received and interpreted by your music software. Use your programs MIDI Learn function to assign each of KeyRig 25s knobs, buttons, and sliders to the specic parameters youd like to control. Most audio applications now have a MIDI Learn function, and youll need to refer to the softwares documentation to nd out how to use this feature. Once you have assigned an on-screen parameter to one of the controls on KeyRig 25, you should be able to manipulate the on-screen parameter using your hardware controller. For example, if you are using M-Audio Key Rig virtual instrument software, right click any MIDI mapable on-screen control. If the control can be mapped, the following window will appear:
Select Learn and turn a knob on the controller keyboard that you would like to assign to the on-screen knob. The assignment has now be made and you should see the on-screen knob move when you turn your KeyRig keyboards knob. NOTE: If your program does not feature a MIDI Learn function, you may still be able to control your music software by changing the mapping of KeyRig 25s assignable controls to match the MIDI CC numbers required by your music software. To nd out how to do this, refer to the section entitled KeyRig 25 Advanced Features found later in this guide.
KeyRig 25 User Guide Sending Program Changes
If your software or MIDI device supports program change messages, you can recall different presets (sounds) straight from the KeyRig 25 keyboard without having to reach for the MIDI device (or computer). To send a program change message: 1. 2. 3. 4. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button. Press the PROG CHG key on the keyboard. Enter the program number you wish to send, using the numerical data entry keys, or the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm. Tip: The assignable buttons can be programmed to send out specic program change messages on individual MIDI channels. This can be useful as it allows you to quickly jump to specic presets by pressing one button. For further information regarding this method, please refer to the MIDI Messages InDepth section of this manual.
Note that program change messages are sent on the global MIDI channel. The global channel can be changed using the procedure described further below.
Sending Bank Changes
If your software or MIDI device contains more than 128 presets (sounds), then the presets will be organized into separate banks of sounds. KeyRig 25 allows you to switch between banks straight from the keyboard without having to reach for the MIDI device (or computer). To send a bank change message: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button. Press the BANK LSB or BANK MSB key on the keyboard. Enter the bank number you wish to send using the numerical data entry keys, or the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button. Press the PROG CHG key on the keyboard. Enter the program number you wish to recall in your new bank, using the numerical data entry keys, or the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm.
To learn more about LSB and MSB, please refer to the MIDI Messages In-Depth section of this manual. NOTE: Bank change messages must be followed by a Program Change message for the bank change to take effect. Simply sending a bank change message by itself will not result in any changes in your MIDI hardware or software.
Setting the Global MIDI Channel
The M-Audio KeyRig 25 can transmit on any of the standard 16 MIDI channels. If you are using a computer-based system, the software usually controls the routing of MIDI signals, and this parameter can be left in its default setting. However, if you are using KeyRig 25 without a computer to control a MIDI device (such as a sound module), you will need to make sure that both your M-Audio KeyRig 25 keyboard and the MIDI device are set to the same MIDI channel. KeyRig 25 has a Global MIDI channel setting that affects the keyboard, program/bank change messages, and any controllers (buttons, knobs, sliders, footswitch) that have been set to respond to the global channel. To set the Global MIDI Channel: 1. 2. 3. Press the GLOBAL CHAN button. The keyboard enters Program Mode. The LED will display the currently selected Global Channel, preceded by a c. Enter the MIDI channel number using the numeric keys or use the DEC/INC keys. Press the ENTER key to accept the new channel.
KeyRig 25 User Guide MIDI Out from USB Mode
When KeyRig 25 is connected to your computer via USB, all MIDI data generated by the keyboard is sent to your computer through the USB connection. By default, this same data is also mirrored and sent out through KeyRig 25s MIDI Output port. However, KeyRig 25s MIDI Out from USB Mode makes it possible to recongure the MIDI Output port so that it appears as a completely independent MIDI output to your music software. You can then use this port to control a separate MIDI device (such as a sound module or sampler) through your software (you will still be able to use KeyRig 25 as a controller). To activate MIDI Out from USB mode: 1. 2. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button. Press the MIDI OUT key.
You may want to duplicate or reorganize the order of the presets on your KeyRig 25 controller. For example, lets say you wanted to copy preset #2 (Reason Native) to location #4. This can be done through the following procedure: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Recall preset #2 by using the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button. Press the MEM STORE key on the keyboard. Enter 4 using the numerical data entry keys or the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm.
This will save or store the current setup to preset location #4. Note that this operation will overwrite the contents of the existing preset.
Enigma is a powerful program that allows you to change the settings of any assignable slider, knob, or button on the KeyRig 25 through an easy-to-use graphical user interface. The program also allows you to store a virtually unlimited amount of presets on your computers hard drivea handy tool for users who have created custom presets for each of their MIDI devices. The program is available for free download at www.m-audio.com Refer to the Enigma User Guide to learn more about how to use the software with KeyRig 25
Sending a Snap Shot
Snap Shot is a useful function that can be used to synchronize the receiving MIDI device with the controls on your keyboard. When you send a Snap Shot, the current value of each individual MIDI control (button, knob, slider, etc.) will be sent on the channel that the MIDI control is assigned to. This updates all of the parameters on your MIDI device with the current knob positions on KeyRig 25. The function can also be used as a creative tool, often with interesting and surprising results. Press the GLOBAL CHAN and MUTE buttons together to send a Snap Shot. TIP: This function can also be used to set up the control parameters at the start of a song. If you set all the controller values to obtain the desired effect levels in your song, you can then record the Snap Shot to ensure the song will always play back with the correct effect levels. To do this, put your sequencer into record mode and press the Snap Shot buttons.
Muting All Controllers
To temporarily mute KeyRig 25s fader and knobs, press the function button labeled MUTE. The LED displays OFF when this function is engaged. Mute allows you to alter the position of the slider and the knobs without affecting the settings of your software. Note that this function does not affect buttons, the foot switch, pitch bend and modulation controls, or the keyboard. When one of the aforementioned controls is used, mute is disengaged and all controllers are turned back on. Use this feature if you are switching between presets with the controllers out of position. You will be able to move the controller to a position relative to the softwares controller value, without causing the softwares controller value to jump.
KeyRig 25 User Guide Setting Toggle Values for the Buttons
The 8 assignable buttons and the pedal can each be assigned to toggle between two values by doing the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button and push the footswitch or button you wish to modify. Press the DATA 2 (MIN) key. The LED will display the current low value of the controller. Enter your new low value using the numerical data entry keys or the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button again, followed by the DATA 3 (MAX) key. Enter the new high value using the numerical data entry keys or the DEC/INC buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm.
The procedure described above will toggle the button or footswitch each time you press it. It is also possible to congure the control so that it sends one value when it is pressed, and another value when released. To do this: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button and push the footswitch or button you wish to modify. Press the CTRL ASGN key. Enter 146 using the numerical data entry keys or DEC/INC buttons. This sets the control for MIDI CC (On/Off) mode. Press ENTER to conrm. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button again, followed by the DATA 1 key. Enter the number of the MIDI CC you want the button to send out. Press the ENTER key to conrm. Assign the two toggle values for control press (DATA 3) and control release (DATA 2) using the procedure described above.
Assigning MIDI Machine Control (MMC) Commands to a Button
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button and push the button you wish to modify. Press the CTRL ASGN key. Enter 149 using the numerical data entry keys to indicate that you would like to assign an MMC command to your selected button (see Appendix B for a complete list of MIDI CC numbers and their corresponding commands). Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button, then the CHAN ASGN key. Enter 127 using the numerical keypad. This ensures that the message is sent to all device ID numbers. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button, then the DATA 2 key. Enter a number from the chart below to assign the corresponding MMC message to your selected button.

KeyRig 25 User Guide Assigning a Note to a Button
The following shows the procedure for setting a button to transmit a MIDI Note On message when pressed, and a MIDI Note Off message when released. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button and push the button you wish to modify. Press the CTRL ASGN key. Enter 147 using the numerical data entry keys or the DEC/INC buttons. This is the MIDI CC number that corresponds to Note On/Off mode (see Appendix B for all MIDI CC numbers). Press the ENTER key to conrm. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button followed by the DATA 3 key. Enter 100 using the numerical data entry keys or the DEC/INC buttons. This will result in a Note On message with a velocity of 100 when your selected button is pressed. If you would like a different velocity, enter that velocity instead of 100. Press the ENTER key to conrm. Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button followed by the DATA 2 key. Enter 0 using the numerical data entry keys or the DEC/INC buttons. This will result in a Note Off command being sent out when your selected button is released.
8. 9. Finally, press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button, then the CHAN ASGN key. Enter the channel that the message should be sent on.
10. Press the ENTER key to conrm your selection. Note: Many specication sheets for synthesizers and other MIDI devices make use of NRPN messages and will give the MSB and LSB values that should be entered for DATA 3 and DATA 2 (See Appendix F). Some sheets may only list the values in hexadecimal format, but the M-Audio KeyRig 25 requires each value to be entered as a decimal. Use Appendix C at the end of this User Guide to convert hexadecimal values into decimal.
About SysEx Messages and Device ID
MIDI SysEx messages (memory dump, all notes off, master tune, etc.) are global MIDI messages that are not MIDI channel-specic. This means SysEx messages are not transmitted on specic MIDI channels. Instead, SysEx transmits a Device ID number along with any SysEx message. This ID is used to uniquely address a particular destination device within your MIDI setup. Device IDs range between 00127. To send a SysEx message to a particular device in your MIDI setup, nd out which Device ID it responds to, then assign the same Device ID to KeyRig 25 before starting the transmission. For most devices, the Device ID is pre-congured at 127 at the factory. Device ID 127 plays a special role, as it can be read by all connected devices, regardless of their individual Device ID setting. As an example, a device with device ID 50 will not only accept messages that are using Device ID 50, but also messages with Device ID 127. SysEx messages with any other Device ID are ignored. The Device ID for a SysEx message assigned to a controller can be changed using the DEV ID key. This key is used for varying the global Device ID of the M-Audio KeyRig 25.
Assigning the Device ID
Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button, then the DEV ID key to assign a Device ID to the M-Audio KeyRig 25. When the DEV ID key is pressed, the LED display indicates the assigned Device ID. It is possible to enter a new device ID using the numerical data entry keys, or the +/- buttons. Press the ENTER key to conrm. If a SysEx message is sent from a device with a Device ID of 127, that message can be read by all attached MIDI receiving hardware regardless of their Device ID settings. If a SysEx message is created by a device with a Device ID other than 127, the SysEx message will only be processed by devices with an identical Device ID. The sent SysEx message will be ignored by devices with a Device ID that doesnt match that of the sending device.
Press the ADVANCED FUNCTION button followed by the MEM DUMP key to send out a number of SysEx data packets that represent the 5 user-dened or factory-set presets of the M-Audio KeyRig 25. This can be used for storing or backing up the contents of the memory presets externally. It is possible to record a Memory Dump to a standard MIDI sequencer track, much like how you would record notes on a MIDI sequencer track. You can recall the Memory Dump you recorded by playing back the MIDI track containing the recorded Memory Dump, making sure that the M-Audio KeyRig 25 is selected as the MIDI output for that particular track. The current controller assignments are not immediately affected by a Memory Dump, or a memory location that is sent to the keyboard. You rst need to recall a preset to access the uploaded new settings after a memory dump has been sent to the keyboard.
MIDI Messages In-Depth
Program & Bank Changes
When the MIDI standard was rst established, it enabled the user to access only 128 different sounds using program change messages (0-127). As MIDI devices grew to be more sophisticated and contain more sounds, bank change messages were included in an updated MIDI specication to allow for more than 128 sounds to be accessed. The language MIDI uses to communicate between musical instruments only allows for program change commands 0-127, for a total of 128 possible programs (127 programs + program 0 = 128 programs total). Because of inherent limitations of the MIDI communication protocol, the number of directly accessible programs (using program change messages) cannot easily be expanded beyond 128. Thus, a system of banks, with 128 sounds in each, has been created that enables manufacturers to overcome the 128-sound MIDI limit. 128 Banks with 128 sounds in each bank is the basic principle used to expand the number of accessible sounds. However, to avoid reaching the new limit of the resulting 16,384 possible sounds (128 banks x 128 programs) accessible using a bank change combined with a program change, another layer of banks was added. The result is a system of 128 banks that can contain 128 subbanks in each of them, which, in turn, can contain 128 sounds (programs) within them. Bank change messages are useful when calling up sounds from a large library that may exist in a particular sound module or software synth. For example devices that are built with Rolands GS specication or Yamahas XG specication require you to specify a bank change in order to access the extra voices and effects that these devices provide.
MIDI CC 0 is the bank select MSB (Most Signicant Byte) message. This MIDI message is 7-bit in size and can be used to select any of 128 banks. This message can be used in conjunction with MIDI CC 32 which is bank select LSB (Least Signicant Byte): a separate 7-bit message allowing additional selection of any of another 128 sub-banks. The combination of Bank MSB and LSB messages gives a 14-bit message that can select any of a possible 16,384 banks. Each bank can in turn contain 128 possible sounds selected via a separate program change MIDI message. This enables a user to theoretically recall over two million programs directly, using only MIDI commands. However, most devices only use a few different banks, and allow you to access them with either a Bank LSB message or a Bank MSB message. Please consult your synthesizers or softwares documentation for more information on which type of bank change messages they can process.
You will nd many MIDI devices respond to program change commands and many are organized according to the GM listing. In General MIDI devices, different sounds are organized in the same way from device to device. Piano sounds are in their particular place, string sounds are in their place, drum sounds are in their place, and so on. All GM devices (both hardware and software sound modules) are clearly labeled as such, so you know that their sounds are organized in the General MIDI structure. When a GM device receives a MIDI program change, it calls up a type of sound that you expect from the GM sound set. All non-GM MIDI sound modules call up unique sounds from their memory upon receiving MIDI program changes. Since the sounds in a non-GM device are not arranged in a particular order, you need to take a look at the device itself to see which sound you want and at which location in the memory it resides. Many VST instruments such as Native Instruments FM7 or the synth modules in Propellerhead Reason are non-GM devices. You can send program change, bank LSB and bank MSB messages directly from the KeyRig keyboard. Please consult the Advanced KeyRig 25 Features in Edit Mode section of this User Guide for further details.
The KeyRig 25 keyboard has been tested under a wide variety of conditions. Despite our thorough testing, the controller can be used in virtually limitless situations and certain scenarios may result in unexpected performance. This section will highlight some of the most common difculties users may experience and provide tips to remedy these problems. If you have read this section and still cannot resolve an issue you are experiencing, please feel free to contact M-Audio technical support for further assistance. Problem 1: My KeyRig 25 suddenly stopped working after having performed ne since installation. Close any music applications you are using, switch the KeyRig 25 off, and restart your computer. Once your computer has restarted, switch the KeyRig 25 back on and try again. Problem 2: I have connected a sustain pedal to my M-Audio keyboard, but its operation is reversed. The KeyRig 25 keyboard determines the polarity of a sustain pedal when the controller is switched on. The sustain pedal is assumed to be in the OFF position (i.e., not pressed) when the keyboard is turned on. To ensure proper operation, make sure the pedal is not pressed during start up. Problem 3: The keyboard does not trigger sounds in my music software. See if your music software features a MIDI input or MIDI activity indicator. Most programs have a MIDI activity indicator that can be used to conrm whether MIDI data from the keyboard is reaching the software. If the software is not receiving any MIDI data, be sure the controller is properly installed and is selected as a MIDI input device within your software. Refer to your softwares documentation to learn how to congure and select MIDI input devices. If the MIDI activity display indicates that MIDI data is reaching your software, then you may not be hearing sounds because the MIDI data is not being routed correctly through the software itself. Refer your softwares documentation to learn how to route MIDI data properly. Problem 4: The controller is connected to my computer through USB but it does not seem to turn on. Make sure the power switch is in the On position. If this does not remedy the problem, the keyboard may not be receiving adequate power from your computer. Try plugging the controller into a different USB port or powered USB hub. Alternatively, you may try connecting a 9-12V DC, 1000mA external power supply to the Power jack on the rear of the keyboard. Problem 5: My music software (or hardware) always recalls the preset next to the program number that I have sent to it from the KeyRig 25. For example, if I send a program change with the number 40 (Violin), my software loads sound number 41 (Viola). Some General MIDI modules count their sound patches from instead of 0-127. Both methods are common. As a result, there may be an offset of +/-1 between the sent program change number and the recalled sound patch. Problem 6: I have modied my KeyRig 25 settings but would like to go back to its factory default settings. To reset KeyRig 25 to its factory default settings, rst switch the keyboard off. Next (while the controller is still off), press and hold both Preset +/- buttons and turn the unit on. Note that restoring the factory presets will erase all setups you have stored to memory.

Easy-to-Use 25-Note USB Keyboard
Quick Start Guide
Your KeyRig 25 controller is class-compliant and requires no drivers when used under Windows XP or Mac OS X. To install the keyboard: 1. Turn on your computer.
2. Use the provided USB cable to connect KeyRig 25 to an available USB port on your computer.
3. Make sure that the power switch on the back of the controller is in the on position. KeyRig 25 is now ready to be used.
NOTE: Advanced Windows XP users who plan to 1.) use the keyboard with more than one audio application at the same time, or 2.) send long SysEx (system exclusive) commands, must install special multi-client drivers. This process is described in the Key Rig 25 User Guide located on the KeyRig 25 CD-ROM.
IMPORTANT: The KeyRig 25 keyboard is bus-powered by your computer through the USB connection. Only use a power adapter if your computer cannot provide adequate power to the controller or if you are using KeyRig 25 without a computer.

Certifying Key Rig Virtual Instrument Software
Using Key Rig Virtual Instrument Software
Once installed, Key Rig software can be used in two modes:
This mode allows you to use Key Rig on your computer without any additional software. Key Rig can be launched in standalone mode through the Windows Start menu or by double-clicking the shortcut icon on your desktop (if you have chosen to create it in the installer). When using the Key Rig application in standalone mode, be sure to select your ASIO-compatible sound card and output channels from the pull down menu at the top of the program (as shown below). This will ensure that Key Rigs outputs are routed correctly through your audio interface.
NOTE: An ASIO-compatible audio interface is required to use the Key Rig software. Key Rig does not require any MIDI input configuration while in standalone mode. The software automatically receives MIDI data messages from your KeyRig 25 USB controller keyboard or from every other MIDI interface installed on the computer.
VST or RTAS plug-in mode:
you use digital audio workstation (DAW) software such as Pro Tools or If Cubase SX, this mode allows you to use Key Rig from within the DAW application as a plug-in. In this mode, your DAW software determines what MIDI information is routed to Key Rig and how the plug-ins audio output is routed through your computer. Please consult your host applications documentation for more information on audio and MIDI routing as well as how to use plug-ins.
Key Rig Virtual Instrument software features MIDI learn functionality. This allows you to quickly assign a button, knob, or slider from on the KeyRig 25 keyboard (or any MIDI controller connected to your computer) to control nearly any function within the software. To use MIDI learn: 1. Right-click on a function that you would like to control. 2. Select Learn. slider on your controller. The assignment has now been made and you may now control your software using your selected button, knob, or slider on your hardware.
3. Press a button, twist a knob, or push a
Using the KeyRig 25 controller with third party software
Configuring your software:
Once the KeyRig 25 controller keyboard is installed on your computer, all MIDI capable applications on your system should recognize KeyRig 25 as a new MIDI input device. To use the KeyRig 25 keyboard with your software, you may need to configure the software to accept MIDI data being sent from the KeyRig 25 keyboard. This is usually done though an Options or Device Setup menu in your application, but the specific process varies from program to program. Please consult your softwares documentation to learn how to configure MIDI input devices. NOTE: In Windows XP, KeyRig 25 will appear as USB Audio Device to your music software if the optional M-Audio drivers have not been installed. This is normal. If the M-Audio drivers have been installed, KeyRig 25 will appear as USB O2 In.
Assigning buttons, knobs, and sliders on the KeyRig 25 keyboard to control the software:
Assigning KeyRig 25s buttons, knobs, or sliders to control your software:
The KeyRig 25 keyboard has a number of assignable MIDI controls (knobs, buttons, sliders, etc.) that can be used to control your music software. Each assignable control has its own unique MIDI Continuous Controller (CC) number. When you turn a knob, push a button, or move a fader, KeyRig 25 sends out MIDI CC data that is received and interpreted by your music software. To control your music software with KeyRig 25, first make sure the program is configured to receive MIDI data generated by KeyRig 25. This is described in the section above. Next, use your programs MIDI Learn function to assign each of KeyRig 25s knobs, buttons, and sliders to the specific parameters youd like to control. Most audio applications now have a MIDI Learn function, and youll need to refer to the softwares documentation to find out how to use this feature. Once you have assigned an on-screen parameter to one of the buttons, knobs, or sliders on KeyRig 25, you should be able to control the parameter using your hardware controller. If your program does not feature a MIDI Learn function, you may still be able to manually assign your programs features to be controlled by KeyRig 25. To find out how to do this, refer to the KeyRig 25 User Guide found on the KeyRig 25 CD-ROM.
