The M-Audio® Axiom® keyboard controllers combine all the production power and performance you need to get the most from your music software and MIDI gear. More than just “data-entry” controllers, the Axiom keyboards feature piano-style, semi-weighted keys for a more musical playing experience. Large dynamic trigger pads make it easy to program beats and trigger one-shot samples while the knobs, sliders, and buttons deliver complete real-time control over your software. DirectLink mode automatically maps the Axiom to common DAW functions* including transport, mixer, track pan, and virtual instrument parameters – no complicated setup required. The Axiom controller even features a sleek, angled top panel and centrally positioned LCD for easy viewing in any environment.
