    To answer regarding the keyboard layout.

    UTILIZATION

    It was my first master keyboard!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very good master keyboard! Easy to set up as long as we take the trouble to read the manual. I thought it was very good especially touched to start (not heavy attention, but just put in the game) and I honestly can not find a 25-key weighted must have touched ... the pads can be used without worry.

    Have fun!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'll be very simple because I'm not spending more time on this **** m, then the touch is nice, either keyboard or pads, nothing to say, all the functional air.
    I could put a mixed note for that, but do not even think about. The goal of the controller noon, what is it? It's controller. And how we control? Configuring it. And how do we configure that thing, the Axiom 25 thing? Well it is not set. Or maybe it was a ferry 6 M-AUDIO Axiom 25 option.

    So I'll sell the dung and me back on AKAI, which has already proven many times.
    M-AUDIO Ciao, I will not be resumed more!

  • My 2nd Favorite Small Scale Midi Keyboard

    M-Audio Axiom 25Published on 05/15/12 at 21:02
    The M-Audio Axiom 25 is a 25 key, semi weighted keyboard, with 8 pads, 8 knobs, a set of transports and a modulation and pitch bend wheel. The feel of this keyboard is AWESOME. I HIGHLY recommend the larger size models of this line for a keyboard, but I use this one as my small scale midi keyboard. It's my second favorite for the size, and it just feels great. The semi-weighted keys are awesome, and the drum pads are great. I have used this keyboard for a while and love it.

    UTILIZATION

    Instillation is simple as plugging it in and mapping it to Ableton Live. Everything works fine, but the knobs feel a little clunky and rough, but passable. I love the pads, they feel awesome, and the......

    UTILIZATION

    Instillation is simple as plugging it in and mapping it to Ableton Live. Everything works fine, but the knobs feel a little clunky and rough, but passable. I love the pads, they feel awesome, and the keys feel SO good under your fingers. I love the general feel of the whole thing and everything has the perfect amount of responsiveness. I love the way that they feel so much, that I bought a 64 key version that I use for pads, leads, and some piano stuff. I'm thinking about picking up another one for live performance. The modulation and pitch bend wheels also feel AWESOME. They are super responsive and smooth.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is my 2nd favorite keyboard because of it's feel. The keys feel SO good, and the pads rock, though the knobs are nothing special. I use this as my secondary small scale keyboard, and the Roland A-300 Pro as my main. I do love this one though, but the A-300 has more knobs and sliders, and is 20 bucks cheaper and spans 4 octaves. What this lacks in controls it makes up for in the incredible feel and response. The newest version comes with one fader that I've messed with and feels pretty good, so pick one up if you want. I highly recommend this keyboard.

  • Made his duty

    M-Audio Axiom 25Published on 05/13/12 at 01:55
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    At first I was seduced by the heavy touch announced by the manufacturer and opinions right here, and then from the time I was looking for a MIDI controller with pads. its 8 knobs are not foreign to my choice, in short, for this price range, we must admit that everything has a large.

    UTILIZATION

    Let us begin with the feel of the keyboard: If you are looking for a pure heavy touch, do not go, he must type in the more upscale, but nice touch is still a touch "spring".

    Then, the aftertouch is not programmable, as has been seen here: there are just touch presets, which is not bad.

    The touch pad is accurate enough for cons, especially if used in preset "Bourin".

    Notched knobs, infinite race. Give it a try and tell if it suits you.

    Since I use it as I please with Live and its function "midi learn" the 127 programs are completely useless for me now. That said, there are many possibilities and the manual is very detailed about it. All the "Advanced Options" of this manual is very clear to store your preferences. In short, a midi controller like any other.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 weeks.

    I had an Oxygen 8 v2 before, touching sucks, no pads ... I also tried the Akai MPK mini home, and I confess that I was not convinced (it really makes toy next to the Axiom).

    Likes: the pads, touch keyboard corect and notched knobs (and yes there who love, especially when you know adjust their sensitivity proves that the most accurate and practical), the look is not disgusting.
    I like less: for me the ideal MIDI controller would leave all programming to the software portion of the device. Instead of the screen and navigation buttons, zippers 6 were perfect, but I dream a little.

    Price / quality ratio, I would do this choice? Yes yes and yes, with this controller, "what you see is what you get." A midi controller quite honorable and practical, reasonably priced.

  • M-Audio Axiom 25 Red Special Edition

    M-Audio Axiom 25Published on 11/01/09 at 15:00
    This is, um, red. Actually very red. Very, very red. Actually I think it's limited edition. It has 25 keys, eight trigger pads, eight rotary encoder knobs (the endless kind) and an LCD display.

    I paid about $180 smackers for this unit at Music123.com. I was looking for a seperate USB Midi controller for my rig, and this hot little unit was the right price, looked good, and had the features I was looking for.

    I like the look for starters. It really dresses up my rig. I also like the fact that the keys are semi-weighted which gives it a traditional feel, and the transport controls are all assignable. There are 20 memory locations as well.

    There's not much to like. I'm not a big fan of the included Enigma software that can be used to manage your setups, but that's just my personal preference. I guess you can't win them all.

    Seems pretty well built. It's a plastic housing, but it's solid. I mentioned the keys being weighted, and that helps to give it a solid feel while playing. All the knobs and rotary controls seem pretty well built like this thing could hold up to it's share of gigs.

    Overall, I'm pretty pleased. For the price, I guess it's not really a steal. Probably pretty fairly priced actually, but I liked the look and features and wasn't really interested in saving 20 or 30 bucks either way. I'd prefer to get what I want and be happy with it.

  • Axiom is one of the better midi keyboards

    M-Audio Axiom 25Published on 03/06/12 at 00:00
    The M Audio Axiom 25 is a great midi keyboard that will work with virtually any computer music software. I am pretty sure at their website they also have updates just in case that for some reason it doesn't work with your DAW or Sequencing program. You can connect using midi cords or usb. I used usb just because for my mobile set up it was a lot easier to use and just plug in.


    UTILIZATION

    Its actually really easy to get set up, just plug and play. You may need to update the drivers though but no need to worry they come with the Axiom when you purchase it. Or if you buy it used or lose the disk you can always do it from their website without any problems. M Audio is usually really......

Or if you buy it used or lose the disk you can always do it from their website without any problems. M Audio is usually really good with handling their customers and they will do what they can to keep you up and running.
    As far as the manual goes, I did have to use it several times because of all the menu options and buttons on the board. It was a little overwhelming to have all of those options on just a midi keyboard. Not to mention and midi keyboard with its own viewing screen. Now the screen isn't too big though its really small but it will do the job.


    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price, which is pretty high. But its worth the buy! There are a lot of midi keyboards on the market today and to me a lot of them basically have the same options but this one actually has a good weight to it. Its not built cheap. Even though its just a 25, they make them all the way up to 88. I have used the 88 before an it felt like I was going through progressions on a real piano. But the keys aren't too heavy so you can still get those quick synth and leads in. I am a happy M audio customer and will continue to be for years to come. I recommend this midi controller.

    That's the size I chose this keyboard poue master. USB connectivity and auto-power suited me a lot.

    UTILIZATION

    Touch is semi-weighted and is not unpleasant. I have experienced no problem with a config Asus Laptop with XP.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Everything for me to equip my mobile station, operating ergonomics, through its dimensions.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The pads are gniaux, I immediately find the real game with the impulse bar to Live. It changes the keyboard keys with their run too long for this purpose. And size of the bearings pads allows two fingers. The ides and rhythmic sound coming soon. Nickel for bass too. VLOC different curves. Rponse pressure. It can even control of MIDI parameters as a cutoff and resonance with these pads, so definitely make rhythms with the effects: ))))))
    The encoders are notched, slightly weird to beginners, once the fingers habitus they are actually super effective. Acceleration curves used to configure the encoder to quickly down a virtual fader all the way down if you turn quickly, for example, and be precise if it runs slowly ... :))))
    Live in is super efficient: the pads to the clips, the encoders to the volumes, parts, effects ... you juggle very quickly control the other or simultaneously. Super fun game live. You can also quickly change preset to vary the controls while playing in Live: Example 1 for 8 preset volume, preset 2 to 8 parts, 4 preset for a vst-i etc ... And the soft Enigma provides management presets .

    And then there was a damn good looks! In short I Fiffe !!!!!

    Finally Ableton and M-Audio have joined the SERIES Axiom to optimize the soft-hard mess ... Notice to intrsss!

    You can not call a preset, make changes and save the changes Controller on the same preset. For the changes to take effect on the same preset, you must save a preset and save deuxime then the first preset.

    In addition to the possibility of paramtrer directly on the keyboard, the software enigma, free tlchargeable MAUDIO is really easy to use, we can all rgler potentiomtres and keys from the -l do copy and paste presets, factory presets rcuprer the axiom ...

    Pluttlger Ct weight is fairly pais on the other hand, they will house not all the bags back, I had to buy a small suitcase to carry it with the computer.

    I put 8 in the manual oversights that made me lose a lot of time.

    OVERALL OPINION

    APRS galr be a bit on the lack of info (see above), I'm really happy with my purchase and the price quality ratio that I find plutt good. J'apprcie particulirement more touch overall knobs, pads and keyboard as well as the transport buttons are handy as are the two buttons for octave up and down but did not jouant.Je test other keyboard but I did a lot of research before and I think I made the right choice. I hesitated with Microcontrol Korg but I do not ultimately regret my choice from the sizes of keys and the overall product quality DGIG an impression of strength (see the medium term).
