  • Awesome Keyboard/Controller!

    As reviewed by mark mcdaniel on 5/30/2013

    For the price, I am very impressed with M-Audio. Just a little update concerning the previous two reviews, Avid Ignite is now available and has been for a few months now. It is pretty incredible, and I use it fairly often. A copy of Ableton Live Lite is also included and works great. I only use the keyboard on my MacBook and my Mac Mini, and it is intuitive and simple to use. I could try it in Windows, but Mac OS is a thousand times easier to create music and operate within, which is probably why most musicians use it. Anyway, if you're looking for something simple, affordable, and very portable this is a great keyboard. I feel it is well worth the price and more!

  • How 'bout having software ready before you sell a controller?

    As reviewed by gregg mervine on 12/24/2012

    I like the design of this, and the keys feel ok for being so small. I wasn't expecting much on the playability end, but it's probably a little more intuitive feeling than I imagined. I have a 49 keystudio by M-Audio that I like ok, so decided to try another M-Audio keyboard. However, CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION!!! The drivers are not ready for this, and so it won't work with Ableton properly, and probably not even with ProTools. There's only hypercontrol drivers available for Windows 32bit. So what's the thing worth? Very little to me, who uses a Mac. It comes with software which I don't really need and am not interesting in learning, so I haven't tried to install it. Several folks have asked on avid's forums about when drivers may be available. I'd at least hope they'd respond on that, but no response so far. Avid's website is absolutely opaque. As for returning it to the Guitar Center where I bought it, the dude said it's not returnable because it comes with software; even though I haven't installed it and don't want it, I can't return the damn thing. If you want a midi controller you can use right now on a Mac or windows 64 bit, this isn't it. Go for a Korg, Novation or Akai. Don't make the mistake I did. I'm really hoping the software comes out soon.

  • Great feel and good for you if you are brand new to the MIDI Controller

    As reviewed by ALEX MILLER on 9/11/2013

    This keyboard is very impressive for the price. Being new to the MIDI scene I wanted something that looked easy enough to use and provided a program that worked for the system and with the Axiom air mini 32, that is what you get. A set up that is easy to use even if you don't know what you are doing and a program that after watching the instructional videos make it easier then expected to create your one music. If you are looking for a starter for the MIDI line of music I would recommend you give it a try.
