Product Description

The M Audio Axiom 61 Keyboard Controller combines all the production power and performance you need to get the most from your music software and MIDI gear.
More than just a data entry controller, the Axiom 61 features piano-style, semi-weighted keys for a musically satisfying playing experience. Large dynamic trigger pads make it easy to program beats and trigger one-shot samples-while the encoder knobs, faders, and buttons deliver complete real-time control over your software. DirectLink mode provides easy, automatic access to common DAW functions including transport, mixer, track pan, and virtual instrument parameters-no complicated setup required. Axiom 61 even features a sleek, angled top panel for easy viewing in any environment.

M Audio Axiom 61 Keyboard Controller Features:

  • 61 piano-style, semi-weighted keys: musically satisfying playing experience
  • 9 mixer-style faders and 8 smooth rotary encoders: hands-on control over your DAW
  • Angled top panel and centrally positioned LCD: better ergonomics on stage and in the studio
  • DirectLink mode: automatically map onboard controls to DAW mixer parameters-no complex setup required
  • Axiom Instrument Maps: instant access to virtual instrument parameters for a hardware synth-like experience
DirectLink: Streamlined Session Control
Building on the best-selling MIDI keyboard controllers of all time, the updated Axiom series features DirectLink, which automatically maps the onboard controls to common parameters in DAWs like Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Live, and Reason. Take control over your software studio-directly from the keyboard. Use the faders and encoder knobs to fine-tune the mix. Easily navigate through sessions using the Transport buttons. Interfacing a MIDI controller with your software doesn't get any easier than this.

Serious Production Power
When inspiration strikes, you need a keyboard controller that can translate ideas into killer tracks. That's why Axiom 61 is equipped with an ultra-expressive semi-weighted keyboard and eight Trigger Finger pads for programming beats with incredible feel. Automatically map Axiom 61 to your DAW with DirectLink-or delve deeper by assigning the pads, encoders, faders, and buttons to whatever controls you wish. Each controller can map to just about any MIDI message available, along with independent channel addressing for each. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination.

Axiom Instrument Mode
With other MIDI keyboards, assigning encoders and faders to control virtual instruments has never been easy. Now thanks to the Axiom 61 controller's Instrument mode, a single button instantly maps the faders, buttons, and encoders to any virtual instrument inside your DirectLink-compatible host. You get direct access to synthesis parameters such as filter cutoff, LFO rate, and envelope settings-without having to manually configure anything. It's almost like turning Axiom 61 into a dedicated hardware synth.

Intuitive Design
Whether you're on stage or in the studio, your keyboard controller should fuel your creativity-providing all the right information and controls at your fingertips. That's why we designed Axiom 61 with a sleek angled top panel for easier viewing of the display and improved ergonomics. Smooth rotary encoders deliver precise, continuously variable parameter changes while low profile 40 mm faders give you a hands-on feel for the mix. The centrally positioned LCD screen provides informative feedback from DAW hosts, including on-screen display of parameters and settings. It all adds up to intuitive control over your MIDI software and hardware.

Mobile Operation
The Axiom series is extremely compact and lightweight and all models are powered directly from your computer's USB bus. Choose the size that's best for your needs, then take your music anywhere you want to go.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I've had the first generation and it was perfect for recording and even live at concerts. It's a Titan among the midi family. This 2nd generation superseded my expectations, and I like the new body.
Feel
How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well?
You might have to play it for awhile when your first get it. The keys were stiff.
