|Hey there music lover, how's it shaking? Thinking you may need a bit more hands-on control... you know, a MIDI controller that's packed with knobs, buttons, pads, great-playing keys and all that goodness... PLUS a user-friendly auto-programming system? After all, why waste time diving into manuals when all you want to do is take hands-on control over your DAW and plug-ins, right? Yep, that's what M-Audio thought too. And that's just what the M-Audio Axiom series gives you. These 25-key, 49-key, and 61-key MIDI controllers are loaded up with the kinds of features you want, they're offered at great prices, and they're aimed to help you speed up your workflow or boost your stage performances. Rock.

What you're really going to dig about the M-Audio Axiom 25 is its variety of control. Sure, you have 25 semi-weighted keys, so you'll feel comfortable playing everything from piano-based stuff to all-out synth rock. It's the best of both worlds, really. More than that, you've got trigger pads to lay in beats or trigger samples live. You've also got encoders to steer your plug-ins, transport controls to start/stop/record/etc., and assignable fader control. Nice! But what ties everything together is the DirectLink mode. It's compatible with most DAWs out there, so you won't have to fuss with setting up your M-Audio Axiom 25 and wasting a whole bunch of time just to get going. It'll assign out the most common controls right away, so you'll be sailing. Of course, for you tweakheads... go on and program it the way you like it. Either way works. And the eye-catching blue LCD display helps you stay in tune with what you're programming, what's going on, etc. This is an awesome MIDI controller. Get the Axiom 25 under your fingertips and you'll see what we mean (and make people jealous). An unexpected amount of control, at the right price: Axiom 25.
