M-Audio Axiom 25
That's the size I chose this keyboard poue master. USB connectivity and auto-power suited me a lot.


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


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

What characteristics have motivated your choice? :

The semi-weighted keys, weight, height, knobs / pads ....
What connector (MIDI pedals ...)?

MIDI In / Out, USB, 2 Pedal Jack, DC 12V


The touch keyboard is it nice? Should your use?

Yes, very nice, the 25 semi-weighted keys are very pleasant to the touch, they are ideal for composing music electro ...
The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

The Manual is provided on the CD (so no paper manual), it is clear in all ...
The general configuration is simple? The selection of MIDI channels, patches is easy?

Very easy with Ableton Live (almost nothing to do), more complicated with Reason (Reason need to download Remote Control, assignment of more complex pads ....)
Remains correct throughout.


For how long have you been using it?

For the past year and a half.
Did you try many other models before getting this one?

What thing do you like most/least about it?

Less: notched knobs (which soften with use), not very practical with Reason

M-Audio Axiom 25
I chose it mainly for its semi-weighted keys (touch piano), his aftertouch, velocity accuracy, the 8 pads for exceptional accuracy.

Connectors MIDI / USB, almost instant installation plug & play, no lag (obviously for MIDI)


The touch keyboard is divine, semi-weighted with aftertouch, a treat.
We quickly forget the 2 octaves and you let yourself quickly overwhelmed by the ultra ergonomic interface.

The configuration and selection of midi channels depends primarily on the DAW. Under Ableton Live, it takes a little digging in FL Studio is a breeze rather disconcerting!

The pads are astounding accuracy!

The keyboard itself is weighted, which gives it a special ergonomic and thus constitutes a stable and very suitable for music composition and creation of arrangements.


I use it for 5 months. It is a joy, he accompanied me in the creation of songs and arrangements to perfection. It performs its function at 100% and a little more.

Pros: Semi-weighted (+ aftertouch), 8 pads of high precision, weighted keyboard

Cons: a little tricky to configure the knobs in some DAW; the 2 octaves? yes but it is considered that in this range.

10/10 So.

EDIT: M-Audio has released drivers for Windows 7, which allows me to use Enigma, the M-audio software that lets you configure the keyboard easily.

M-Audio Axiom 25
- Weight
- Dimensions
- Finish (plastic) ultra-strong, flawless, and aesthetics.
- The aftertouch (when one knows how to use)
- The 8 assignable knobs
- The 8 velocity pads
- Advanced features: editable curves, velocity lock, the banks ...

Suitable for nomadic farmers who want to create wherever they are.

- The knobs and notched infinite (this is only a matter of preference, so it's not objective).


- The semi-weighted keys is unique, but it's very fast.
- The anti-slip high-performance
- The ultra-sensitive pads (perfect for the true beat makers)

- The modulation wheel imprecise.


This is a great master keyboard, ideal for producers and beat makers who want to take their mobile music everywhere. Its functions and features make it a very complete keyboard. The only regret is the lack of manual (download directly on the website), and the difficulty to set the keyboard to avail all its features.

In summary, I recommend this keyboard to all the nomads who want a quality keyboard, and complete. For others, go for the larger version.

M-Audio Axiom 25
When I choose not know much, I followed the advice and testing.


Basically j'tais completely beginners, I never touch the keyboard of my life. Yet I have not touch the manual. And very quickly I managed to do lots of things.
Unique BMOL: the absence of faders.


I use it for a little me, I have not had the opportunity to test other keyboard. But I am completely satisfied that the. In the limit I might be taking the 49 keys.

M-Audio Axiom 25
My choice was motivated by the compatibility in Linux USB


The key is friendly and well transcribed VELOCITY
I use the product on Linux, and there is only happiness for recognition in Jack
and all soft
when the manual I did not cast a glance


I use the product for 3 months, at least for me are the knobs notched: not easy to use

M-Audio Axiom 25
-The apparent solidity and aesthetics
-The MIDI input and output
have motivated my choice
the price made me hesitate
bin and makes it look solid al ... a picture
and in addition it is HUGE
thick as any
auto supplies
pratik very avc ableton


I'm in. pianist
but at twelve o'clock the possibility
very right c
the "rotary encoders"
its really impractical
j Orai favorite of every single knob
but hey after a few pratik
c really useful


I just got it
it is big it is ugly it al brittle air
but practical
I think kau choice if we need MIDI in pa
on board 25 x emu widely needed
I should have listened to the opinion af

and after some use of my stroke and a comparison
the x25 emu of a friend ...

and although the axioum s really comes out

M-Audio Axiom 25
The pressure pads for the composition to balance and rhythm in live samples.
Rotary encoders
the heavy touch of the keyboard
supply live lite
the fact that there is a fairly large screen broadcasting a lot of info


Touch is really not bad, before I had a CTK811EX touch plastic, you really feel the difference, the lack of power is not a problem, the usb trs is much the business
Ct manual, it is fairly simple to understand but the problem is that it does not say everything ... To install no problem paticulier, except that the windows had bad times during the boot (blue screen), just inquitant to beginners but everything seems back to normal afterwards.

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.


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).

M-Audio Axiom 25
Portability rhythmic pads, endless encoders, touch esththique semi-ballast.
Lack of small faders: ((


I feel really good touch, prcis and expressive. The keys are in themselves enjoyable trs in contact, and the semi-weighting is that it seems to have something under the fingers of consistency.
For the twelve o'clock config j'updaterai me, for I begin.
Manual as in English, en version arrives.


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!
