Radial Engineering Key-Largo is a unique and powerful device that combines a multi-channel keyboard mixer with the performance attributes of real-time footswitch control.
Designed for stage use, the compact design features three dual 1/4" analog inputs for standard performance keyboards along with a USB interface to connect a laptop for use with software instruments. Each stereo input is equipped with an individual level control for quick onstage adjustments along with an effects loop to interface an external effects processor. The effects loop can then be turned on or off using the built-in footswitch to activate, say, an echo or reverb when desired. The effects bus is stereo but may be summed to mono when using guitar-style pedals. To add even more fun to the performance, a built-in sustain footswitch lets you connect Key-Largo to your master keyboard or digital piano using a standard guitar cable, eliminating the need to bring a separate sustain footswitch to the gig.
As with all Radial products, Key-Largo is built tough and sounds great. It features solid 14-gauge steel construction with steel-shafted potentiometers and switches to handle the abuse of being on the road. Inside, a switch-mode power supply elevates the rail voltage to 24 volts for extra headroom to handle the most dynamic digital keyboards and fattest analog synths without fear of overload or distortion. Separate monitor outputs allow the artist to adjust the level on stage while the XLR main outputs provide a balanced connection to the PA system. The main outputs are transformer isolated to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops and all outputs are equipped with ground lift switches to further abate noise.
With both USB and 5-pin MIDI connectivity, Key-Largo easily integrates with all types of keyboard setups. High quality 24-bit/192kHz converters allow playback of the best sample libraries and software instruments and also provide the ability to record over USB with excellent audio quality. This means Key-Largo can also be used as a robust recording interface, ideal for recording tracks on the road or for capturing your live performance.
Manage a multi-keyboard setup with ease
Key-Largo effortlessly mixes multiple keyboard outputs down to a stereo feed for the PA system over XLRs. Add more excitement to the performance with a switchable effects loop and master volume pedal.
Integrate software instruments on stage
Key-Largo can take the MIDI output from a controller to play a soft synth on your laptop. High quality digital-to-analog converters give you great sound quality on local monitors and at the PA system.
Combine analog and digital on stage
Mix three keyboards together with the output of a laptop soft-synth, making Key-Largo the center of your performance setup. Connect a 1/4" cable to the footswitch input on your main keyboard to utilize Key-Largo as a sustain pedal, fully implementing the many features of this powerful pedal.
Key-Largo as a recording interface
24bit/192kHz converters provide more than just high quality playback on stage: Key-Largo can also be used to record pristine tracks using your favorite audio program. This allows you to easily record studio-quality tracks while on the road or to capture your live performance.
