M-Audio Lie

By Josh Lowe

from Chandler, AZ

Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR 49 MIDI Controller:

First and foremost: If you are buying this controller to operate inside of Pro Tools, DON?T WASTE YOUR TIME & MONEY! Hypercontrol does not work. In fact, it is supposedly still ?under development?, as they claim on the M-Audio site. However, if you read all of the advertisement, including what?s on the actual product box, they claim that Hypercontrol does work with Pro Tools and it is one of their main selling features for this product line. The Axiom Air even comes with Pro Tools. I ended up keeping mine after purchasing from Gtr Ctr, because I believed the M-Audio tech support personnel. My bad! I should have taken a closer look at M-Audio?s own forum to see the large amount of complaints pertaining to Hypercontrol and Pro Tools. Besides the Hypercontrol lie, this keyboard does function nicely as a standard Midi controller. The Ignite software is decent, but does not replace a top line DAW. The Ignite software will work with other midi controllers, not just the Air and not just M-Audio and actually is free. I personally would not waste my money on any Axiom Air controller, thinking that it will work as advertised in Pro Tools. The biggest FU from M-Audio is that they have already developed Hypercontrol for all of the other major DAW?s with the exception of Pro Tools.
