Overview

The M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 keyboard controller builds on the acclaimed Axiom 25, delivering premium TruTouch action, proprietary HyperControl MIDI-mapping technology, and other cutting-edge enhancements in a compact MIDI controller perfect for tight spaces. HyperControl automatically maps the keyboard's 28 controls to commonly accessed parameters in digital audio workstations including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, and Reason, as well as software instruments. The constant 2-way link with your host DAW means the keyboard's controls are always in sync with your software's active parameters. The intuitive graphic LCD constantly updates the current values, which ensures seamless editing and prevents parameter jumps—even when plug-ins are closed. Toggle instantly between Mixer and Instrument control modes. Map buttons to send QWERTY key commands right from the M-Audio Axiom Pro 25. Save settings to 50 memory locations—each with 4 profiles of quick recall via the intuitive graphic LCD. Now you can control your entire session right from your Axiom Pro 25 Controller.

Enhanced DAW Integration with HyperControl Technology

Thanks to revolutionary M-Audio HyperControl technology, your Axiom Pro 25 controller will automatically map to commonly used parameters of popular software instruments and digital audio workstations including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, and Reason systems (see below for others). HyperControl updates the virtual instrument or track parameter mappings of each control in real time as you sequence—it doesn't get any easier.

The HyperControl Difference
While other controllers offer mapping, the M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 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 25 graphic LCD to group software controls together in a modular fashion. Similar controls are organized in named groups and accessed via 4 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.

DAW Transport and Track Navigation
The 6 dedicated transport buttons on the Axiom Pro 25 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 25 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, and encoders.

Expressive Playability
With great feel in a lightweight chassis, the Axiom Pro 25 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.

The Ultimate Pro Tools Keyboard Controller
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.

Different Strokes
The Axiom Pro keyboard controller line is the first to combine MIDI control with ASCII keystrokes. You can assign any button on Axiom Pro 25 to send ASCII messages accessing any of the available QWERTY keyboard shortcuts within your host DAW. Imagine the possibilities with Copy, Paste, Duplicate, New Track—anything you want to assign.

Complete MIDI Control
With an amazing 28 MIDI-assignable controls, the Axiom Pro 25 puts complete session control in one place. The 8 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 8 rotary encoder knobs. The keyboard's extensive controllers also include 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.

Blue Screen Of Death out of the box? So much for Quality Assurance.

By B Robb

from Winter Springs FL

Comments about M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller:

No wonder this item is on sale for $299 off the list price. My first experience with the Axiom Pro line was horrid. Even at such a 'bargain,' I don't like throwing away $213 tax included on dead merchandise. I had high hopes for this Axiom Pro 25 based on my KeyStation49 user experience - which I would rate 5 Stars, but the Axiom Pro failed to be recognized via USB power in not one, but three different computers. A brand new unit should NEVER fail in the hands of the customer. I'm an expert computer builder (PC) and recently added a MacBook Pro (Late 2011) to my recording studio. I tried using the provided (beige - wow, nice) USB cable, a secondary confirmed working USB cable, my MacBook Pro, a custom 8-core i7 Win7SP1 desktop, a ShuttleAMD X2 running WinXPsp3, and also attempted the factory reset options (+/-) keys, RR+FF, Load+Save while powering on, hooking up the unit to a powered USB Hub, but none of these options could bring this unit past the Blue Screen Of Death. Be warned. If your Axiom Pro doesn't move beyond the initial blue start-up screen after just a few seconds, don't waste your time trouble shooting it for a day like I did. Just take it back and get a unit that is confirmed to be working - in store! And don't forget to buy that 2 year replacement agreement!

I gave mine away...

By Edward

from TX

Comments about M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller:

It was way to much work to get up and running. I use Reason, and didn't like the way it worked with it. I bought the MPK49, and instantly became productive. For the same price, I would buy the MPK instead of this for out of the box productivity. So I gave my axiom to my buddy. He likes it, but doesn't know better!!

A bit confusing

By Mr. H

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller:

This controller looks great, the keyboard feels wonderful, but is very hard to use. As a music teacher, I work with kindergarten through high school students and I needed a controller that was well built, but easy to understand. The manuel seemed like it was written in a different language. I am pretty technically savvy, but this was way too confusing for anyone. The pads are very responsive and the knobs work very well. You must be careful of the sliders though: they break off easily. Plastic is not a good choice for something that will be used everyday. All in all I gave the Axiom a three because of the poor quality of the sliders and the manual's unaccessable nature. Use this in a studio, not in a school.

M-Audio Axiom Pro 25

By Dominic Milella

from Elkhorn, WI 53121

Comments about M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller:

This is what I love about M-Audio. All there products work together, no problems, no searching for updated software, it just works. I run Protools mPowered with M-audio's firewire 2626 and the Axiom pro and it is beautiful. The Axiom controls everything on mPowered from fader movements and pans to 3rd party plugins, you can use the pads to control drum programs like BFD, the keyboard for controlling any instrument plug in and the best part is how easily it does it. There isn't any need to page through 100's of pages of manuals it is user friendly all the way. I would recommend this product to anyone interested in home recording. You can't go wrong.
