M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 Reviews
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.
I would be lost without my Axiom Pro 61. On stage and in the studio, this controller never leaves my side. The HyperControl feature does the hard work for you, and the feel is great! Control your DAW, don't let your DAW control you!

Fantastic value, low signal noise, great keysI bought the Axiom Pro 61 to create a digital recording studio together with the Motu 8pre and my Macbook Pro (running Logic). The Axiom Pro interfaces well with Logic out of the box, and the keys feel great. The wheels left of the keys work well when using the keyboard to trigger synthesized instruments in Logic, like trumpets or bass guitar, etc., in that you can slide into notes a bit. Makes for a more believable mimic (and a lot cheaper and fewer headaches than hiring horn players!).
Live performers will get much more out of this little gem than I do, but even with my limited use, it's well worth the money. Only reason I don't enter 5 stars is my abilities and knowledge prevent me from fully rating its features.

Keys Feel GreatI 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 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.

What a great ControllerThe M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 prove to be just what my studio needed. It works with all my software and my midi gear. Learning the Axiom Pro is base on you knowing your own gear, but there are videos and docs to help you with everything it can do. It is my best add-on to my studio to date.

the best one for that pricei own it for like 4 months now and really... where you gonna find such a great controller for less than 600 bucks? the sliders and knobs make you feel like if you are working on C|24, you have the control all over your mix even working with your favourite plug-ins. For the musician who wants to create quikly, the pads and the keyboard itself are cool too. A purchase that i will never regret.
