M-Audio Axiom Pro 49 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller at a Glance:
HyperControl helps you integrate with your DAW
Thanks to revolutionary M-Audio HyperControl technology, your Axiom Pro 49 controller will automatically map to commonly used parameters of popular software instruments and digital audio workstations including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic and Reason systems. HyperControl updates the virtual instrument or track parameter mappings of each control in real time as you sequence-it doesn't get any easier. While other controllers offer mapping, only the M-Audio Axiom Pro line has HyperControl technology. HyperControl synchronizes Axiom Pro with your DAW, ensuring that your hardware and software collaborate to form a single work environment. The technology utilizes the Axiom Pro 49 graphic LCD to group software controls together in a modular fashion. Similar controls are organized in named groups and accessed via four dedicated softkeys, which are continually updated to reflect the mapped parameters. A dedicated button toggles between Mixer and Instrument modes for instant hands-on control of all of your software's functionality. Dedicated Track buttons allow sequential navigation of your mixer and instantaneous mapping of software instruments within the selected track. You can even control software instruments without opening them.
Transport buttons give you handy access to DAW playback and recording controls
The six dedicated transport buttons on the Axiom Pro 49 controller give you immediate hands-on access to all of your host DAW's playback and recording controls. Unlike other all-or-nothing systems, Axiom Pro 49 also features a transport-only mode. This option lets you access DAW transports and track navigation via HyperControl technology, while creating and controlling your own custom MIDI assignments for the trigger pads, buttons, sliders and encoders.
Whether you are working on a Pro Tools M-Powered, Pro Tools LE or Pro Tools|HD system, the Axiom Pro MIDI controllers set a new standard for Pro Tools keyboard control. Advanced M-Audio HyperControl technology puts instant access to all of your Pro Tools parameters at your fingertips-including mixing, individual track functionality, and unparalleled control of virtual instruments such as Xpand!, Strike and Hybrid.
Play more expressively
With great feel in a lightweight chassis, the Axiom Pro 49 controller provides a new level of creative inspiration. The M-Audio TruTouch keybed combines professional semi-weighted action with advanced high-speed keybed scanning technology for an ultra-expressive playing experience. Assignable aftertouch adds an extra measure of expression and control.
Make MIDI control even better
Axiom Pro 49 has an amazing 65 MIDI-assignable controls, putting complete session control in one place. The eight velocity-sensitive trigger pads integrate acclaimed M-Audio Trigger Finger technology for laying down rhythm tracks or triggering loops and samples. Smoothly control parameters like filters, EQ and panning with the eight rotary encoder knobs. The nine 40mm sliders (each with its own fully assignable button) feature auto-mute to prevent jumping-ideal for controlling mixes, virtual organ drawbars and more. The keyboard's extensive controllers also include 12 fully assignable buttons in the keypad arrangement, a data/octave button, pitch bend and mod wheels, aftertouch, and dual assignable pedal jacks. In addition to USB connectivity, you'll also find traditional MIDI In and MIDI Out ports for connecting external MIDI devices.
Easily create and manage your presets
The Axiom Pro 49 keyboard has 50 memory locations-each with four quick-access profiles of controller assignments-allowing you to easily create and manage your own extensive library of presets with unprecedented power, ease and flexibility.

AXIOM PRO IS THAT G THANG!!! woo woo
by Ian Patrick Marshall from Los Angeles, California USAI love this thing, I owned an original black axiom but once i saw a portion of what this thing can do in web videos i immediately sold the old and bought the Pro

I loved the action, sl... read more [+]iders, knobs, and pads on the original axiom series but programming it was borderline impossible, and not conducive to a speedy workflow.
What they essentially did was add a smart brain (hypercontrol) inside the controller that can have an intelligent conversation with your software. Thus making all of the hands on controls actually useful. Out of the box this thing will speed up your workflow immediately. Once you get more in depth, and begin to understand how it thinks, and the mapping for whatever software your using it just becomes that much more powerful. No matter if im using protools, ableton, or logic in a session I use every single aspect of the controller. The keypad for key commands, the faders for volume, the knobs for panning, sends, and plug in control, the transport, and the amazingly inspiring keybed.
If your debating between this or any of the other controllers get this one! I'm not going to diss novations AUTOMAP because i run that simultaneously with my Nocturn, but Hypercontrol provides no fuss and always works. On a rare occasion it can become disconnected somehow all you have to do it turn of the controller and turn it back on and it will connect again and you can continue.
During tracking and mixing sessions band members are always super intrigued and impressed by the hands on control this thing gives you. In my mind its like working with a space age console. It will eliminate a lot of frustration, and move you into another level of production. close [-]

The Axiom Pro has the perfect marriage of hammer- weighted solidarity & the speed of a synth keybed...I am so very surprised of this level of tactile quality for the price-which in of itself,is worth the price difference over the old Axiom series!
I also chose this controller for it's exclusivity with Reason 4 & the interfacing via the Hypercontrol is a beautiful thing,to say the least!
Between Reason,my CX5's & my Axiom Pro,I now have all of the inspiration I will ever need to create a new level of song writing,that I would not have been able to achieve otherwise! close [-]
Axiom Pro 49 is that bidnezz
by B-LuvTheGift (One 6th of E.S.A. Eastside Affiliates) from Chicago, IL Eastside!!!I use the Axiom Pro 49 in my current Logic 8 setup and I have to say that I'm impressed with the basic overall control you get over Logic out of the box with the HyperControl. I like being able to mut... read more [+]e, solo, play, stop, rewind, forward, and record without ever touching the mouse and the fact that pressing stop twice brings the marker to the beginning of the session or loop point. The new keybed is also nice too. It's not as stiff as the first Axiom controllers. It kinda has this extremely light piano feel but yet the keys aren't so heavy where you'll still feel comfortable whether you're playing pianos, synth, or expressive drum parts. The pads are cool as well. Even though M-Audio could make em' a tad bit "fatter" like MPC style pads, they still feel good when i'm doing drums from Ultrabeat or my own personal sounds in the EXS24. The only thing I have against it is that when you're "slam-dancin" on the pads to much, they tend to blank out a little but it dosen't happen that often. Not to mention i'm sure that M-Audio will work out the minor bugs in future versions of the OS. Above all else it's a great feeling controller and my next move will probably be the 61 key version when I install Logic on my new MacBook Pro. I recommend it for flawless workflow in sequencing or recording on Logic, or anything else for that matter. New buyers don't forget to download the HyperControl protocol for whatever software you're using from m-audio.com close [-]

Excellent build quality sets the M-Audio Axiom Pro 49 apart from many of the other MIDI controllers out there. If you need a controller for your computer, or for outboard hardware, this is the best.
