M-Audio Axiom Pro 49
Some of the features that motivated my choice were the 49 semi weighted keys with a very powerful touch and sensitivity response , the Hyper Control technology that is a time saver.

There are two type of controls , both midi and pedal based.


The general configuration and setup is quite simple , thanks to the technology that comes with this product , you get an instant connection with your working DAW trough the Hyper Control feature.

The manual is greatly designed , very easy to follow and visually well placed.

The patch selection is quite amateur friendly , you get a blue screen where you can choose your presets and even forget about working with your mouse.


What I like most about it , are the 49 semi weighted keys , the hyper control technology , the knobs , the 64 midi controls , that useful blue screen where you can control everything that's happening in your DAW.

What I also like about this product , is how close M-audio got to emulate a real acoustic piano to a midi controller , the keys feel very good , the touch and velocity response is on a completely new level.

My opinion about the value for the price is great , this product costs around 500 $ on amazon , but having these features on your demand , it will make a huge difference in your songs.

Precision and quality of the sound is perfect , the response from the midi controller is very precise , you can create crazy syncopations and your controller will respond properly to it.

I've tried several models , from different companies , getting this level of control with only 500 $ is great , AKAI also has some decent midi controllers , but m-audio axiom pro 49 is the leader here.

Knowing what I know , I would buy this controller again.

M-Audio Axiom Pro 49
What features motivated my choice are those semi weighted keys , a great velocity sensitive feature , I also did like how you can totally forget about your mouse and your daw , so that way you can control the features and options trough that little blue lcd screen.

The drum pad was also quite good and sensitive which worked as an mpc.

This product has a midi type of connection.


General configuration and setup is straight forward , pretty amateur and easy to follow along.

The manual provided with the program was quite good, well detailed , all the information that was relevant to the way this product works and how you can get a pretty easy understanding.

The channel and patch selection was quite simple and fast , which I really like about M-audio products.

The general configuration and setup didn't take a long time , this product has a direct link mode which saves a lot of time from setting up every mixer , pad , effect to your daw.


What I like most about are the keys , they feel really good , almost as real as an acoustic piano , they have a great time response , a great velocity response.

I also must say that the drum pad feels very good , its material is soft and pleasant , the mod wheel is made from a nice material as well.

I like that blue screened lcd , so that way the musical process goes much faster and way more fun that it usually is.

I haven't had and found any errors , so I would rate precision and quality of the sound with 10/10.

The price of the product is about 350$ , so this isn't a very cheap midi controller , however the design and features are awesome.

Knowing what I know , without a doubt I would get this product again.

M-Audio Axiom Pro 49
Characteristics that motivated my choice was the HyperControl Technology, 49-Note that are hypersensitive, semi-weighted piano style, 64 MIDI assignable controls total and the great design provided by M-audio Axiom Pro 49.
M-audio Axiom Pro 49 has a Midi type of connection, also 2 sustained pedals.


The general configuration of the program it's very simple, it has a well detailed manual that clears some things out,I like the LCD and its cool features , the pads, knobs, sliders, pitch control, and many cool features.
The manual is quite clear and advanced at the same time, so if you've never worked with an Midi Controller you should check also some tutorials regarding the HyperControl function and the real time playing provided by the product.


What I really like about it is the design, that white looks damn good, I do enjoy the HyperControl Technology, and I gotta admit that those keys feel and look Pro, and they are expressive and well manufactured.
Another advantage that has M-audio Axiom Pro 49 is the enhanced DAW Integration with HyperControl Technology that makes possible to just plug-in-play feature available.

I can't say it's the cheapest Midi Controller on the market, it costs around 400$ on Amazon, having said that,it's probably one of greatest, world-wide used by many and many producers and musicians.
Mike Shinoda uses it in his productions as well as many others.

The precision and quality of sounds is on a very high level, you can barely see the difference between a real piano and this well made midi controller, the timing, sync, is purely perfect with the DAW that you're using it.

I really do recommend to buy this product if you're serious about music production and want something that feels great, would work as a piano and as a controller, M-audio made that possible and also provided the unique feature of controlling the whole DAW action from the LCD.

M-Audio Axiom Pro 49
I bought this controller after reading forums etc notice.
Characteristics that motivated me: sensitive semi weighted, keyboard "all in one" (knobs, sliders, pads ...), design, keyboard splitable ... and "HyperControl" (sic, well maybe, but not for all uses)


Pianist is not touching suited me perfectly although a little soft, aftertouch is fun to play ... to use my keyboard is "too much" .. a simple touch lighter synth appropriate.

The manual is blah blah ...
Editing the controller itself (I'm not talking about HyperControl which I will post) is with the screen, not through menus and sub menus, but pretty damn poorly suited to utlisation "knober" ...

HyperControl is not made for anyone who wants to tweak a tt will ... is frozen and unplayable in my opinion ... I found this thing sucks ... There are two modes: normal and HyperControl transport, transport mode you lose most of the settings for twelve o'clock preset programs (I basically tried with cubase 5 and a bit ableton that I do not control him at all) and only a few functions are kept (for transport, play, pause etc. precisely!).

Why I have not been able to do with HyperControl? Because it is used to navigate when chéplukoi mode (there is a general pattern, I do not know the term, where you have access to volume, pan ... and a particular one will say) through the crowd parameters ... say you choose to go on your 8 track you want to tweak your vst? yay your vst 40 parameters, for example, you'll have 8 pages of parameters corresponding to the 8 knobs page being utlisation ... for the other 8, you supported a button and it scrolls the next page, and for the next 8 rebelote settings etc. .. etc. .. this is normal HyperControl mode ... order parameter can not be changed if HyperControl is normal ... so if you have your setting and cut off your reso another example is death, because it is necessary to change page ..
you can not work fast with it and it quickly becomes the mission to find a specific parameter ... in the end I found myself staring at the screen tj and be tempted by the mouse. or transfer any remaper HyperControl and my sauce ...

HyperControl seems rather appropriate to use more secondary parameters and settings synths etc ... for example, it can be effective if you focus primarily on piano playing and settings synth sounds etc. ... more to refine a big no settings live improvisations eyc / /: ..


I used a two months or more before having roughly the turn of logic and understand that it was not for me.

Before him I had a first oxygen b61 Geb. "
