M-Audio Update For The KeyRig 49 Keyboard

I recently had to setup and install my own M-Audio KeyRig MIDI controller (just the 49 key one as it was the best I could afford though if someone wants to donate a full 88 key MIDI keyboard to me, I'd be very grateful and would give you a plug here).

The software that comes with some of the Legacy series of MIDI controllers from M-Audio requires online certification in order to use as one of the VST instruments included is protected and serialized.

At some point beyond the release of these keyboards, M-Audio must have procured a full license from the developers as they later released an update that does away with the need for certification and updates the software dramatically.

One of the things I noticed having installed this a few times over the past 7 years is that every time I go to install it, it gets more difficult to find the update online

So I thought to myself, why don't I host the update file myself from here?

Low and behold, that's exactly what I'm doing now. So if you're an M-Audio owner of one of the legacy series keyboards that comes with this software, you don't have to run around for hours to find the update. It's right here.

You can download it from my Music page. It will be one of the first links at the top of the page.

I'll be sure to give this particular post some meaningful metatags so that others can find it through their favourite search engine.

So fellow keyboard players and MIDI enthusiasts, enjoy, and make some great tunes!

[UPDATE 2023]

If anyone out there with an original install disk for the M-Audio Keyrig-49 could make an image of it and upload it to Archive.org, I'd be very grateful for it. My original disk recently went kaput thanks to wear and tear on the compact disk medium itself. That essentially makes the update useless to me. However, I'll keep the download available for everyone but would really appreciate it if someone could image the original disk and either share it publicly, or email me directly at info@shhhhdigital.com.
