M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller at a Glance:
HyperControl helps you integrate with your DAW
Thanks to revolutionary M-Audio HyperControl technology, your Axiom Pro 61 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 61 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 61 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 61 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 61 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.

In addition to USB connectivity, you'll also find traditional MIDI In and MIDI Out ports for connecting external MIDI devices.

Keys Feel Great
by Jeff from Detroit, MichiganI used to have a Fantom S88 with fully weighted hammer-action keys. I lost that in the recession. In the recovery, I had very little money to spend, so I bought this and Komplete 8. The feel of the... read more [+] keys on this board are great, and I think they are the closest you will get to full-weighted keys in this price range. I looked at Oxygen and all the others...it's worth it to spend the extra money on this, you will love it. This keyboard came in the mail, and I played it all day long with the Rhodes Mark I in Komplete 8. Love it. close [-]

The Axiom Pro is an amazing MIDI controller! Its seamless integration with Pro Tools 8's new A.I.R. virtual instruments is phenomenal, and makes external VI control a breeze! The pads are great for sample triggering, and the depth that you can get with this as a MIDI controller with Pro Tools is unmatched. If you want a tactile control when working within Pro Tools, the Axiom Pro is exactly what the doctor ordered.
