"not worth it"

M-Audio Axiom Pro 61Published on 10/25/11 at 22:38

The M Audio Axiom Pro 61 usb is a decent midi controller but not as good as some of the others on the market. It does not send a Midi Note Off (CC64=000) to sustained notes when switching Midi channels via the "Zones" feature...a very risky proposition for performance use. A "panic" key combination was put in place to cover this obvious error instead of creating a toggle function that filtered the message for those desiring that effect.

UTILIZATION

No omni mode either. M-Audio, now Avid, requires you pay for support on this product and after a 4 call process ultimately provided no solution. Hyper control worked very well but in the end requires that you choose between your DAW and......

UTILIZATION

No omni mode either. M-Audio, now Avid, requires you pay for support on this product and after a 4 call process ultimately provided no solution. Hyper control worked very well but in the end requires that you choose between your DAW and other software like Reason- otherwise its detects and controls both at the same time generally causing undesired effects. Midi maps cannot be edited with hyper control "engaged". Thus for some controls to work with your DAW, and others with rewired software,(faders vs knobs) you cannot use the hyper control bus thus defeating the benefit of the software layer and the extra $160 vs. the 2nd gen Axiom. Returning product and also shipping back the not included power supply I had to purchase directly from Avid for non-bus powered use.


OVERALL OPINION

But on the positive side, its a portable controller. Great key feel with not a lot of springy bounce back, smooth and consistent knobs with also a great feel, and mapping to Logic was automatic and smooth and the control work great. USB communication with my Mac Power book means no latency and controlling the various soft synths that I have with the knobs and buttons and sliders on the controller has been transparent and effortless. Great size and weight for lugging around also. If your on the fence with this purchase I say go with a midi controller from Akai.

M-Audio Axiom Pro 61Published on 10/25/11 at 17:28
The M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 is an in depth MIDI controller, an enhanced version of the standard Axiom 61. As the name suggests, the keyboard has 61 keys and also features eight trigger pads, assignable parameters knobs, and assignable sliders. It has pitch and modulations wheels, a numerical pad, transport buttons, and an LCD screen. Yup, it pretty much has all the controls you could want and then some. It then of course has MIDI connections and 1/4" output for sustain.

UTILIZATION

Using all the features on the M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 will definitely take some time as you will need to assign everything to your DAW. Still, once it's all set up the way you like it, it shouldn't be hard to......

UTILIZATION

Using all the features on the M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 will definitely take some time as you will need to assign everything to your DAW. Still, once it's all set up the way you like it, it shouldn't be hard to operate everything as it's merely going to be a controller for what you have inside the box. It's built well and definitely sturdier than the standard version of the Axiom 61.

OVERALL OPINION

The M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 is a great overall MIDI controller, considering both it's a vast array of features and controls and it's very reasonable price. It really does seem like M-Audio is the king when it comes to MIDI controllers of all shapes, sizes, and price ranges. They've really got something for everyone and in everyone's price range. While the Axiom Pro 61 is definitely one of their more complete controllers, it still doesn't cost a boat load of cash. It has the perfect amount of keys in my opinion, as you can play full two hand parts as well as simpler lead lines with one hand. I also enjoy the feel of the keyboard as although it's not completely weighted, it's the perfect in between as it feels real without being too heavy. If you are looking for a complete MIDI controller at a reasonable price, the M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 (and the standard Axiom 61) are a must see.

" Not bad"

Having a master keyboard that licked me and so at work I have to run to shop to start within minutes with a new keyboard.
I was left on a 49 but no bowl in a CATEGORY intermediary in terms of quality there remained only the Oxygen61. It is with this keyboard under the arm I went back to finish my record.
Simple installation (Pro Tools + Logic), connect the USB plug and dsigner as priphrique in ProTools and rolls.

USE

No heavy touch, if you want a touch piano, go your way.
Vlocit classic, nothing more nor less, +/- 3 octaves, some assignable faders (quite prcis over a controller, as the Mackie MCU Pro, for example), so any utility for me.

Transport panel which can be convenient when you have no controller and finally a pitch bend wheel that there is more classic.


NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it now for 2 years, I made myself, it dpann me and ensures good now for compos studio. I recommend it if tight budget or first steps in the home studio or so if one is ultra press due to failure of another keyboard (like me).
I tried dozens of other keyboards before this one, I had the worst good and for a price equivalent.
It is tough enough, but the piano touch may miss some times ...

In short, a very good report qualitprix I recommend this purchase for a home studio, the characteristic will become insufficient for a shoot or for intensive use studio use.

" Good but not perfect"

M-Audio Axiom Pro 61Published on 07/04/13 at 08:03

I bought this keyboard there two years, nine for use with Ableton Live with which it fits perfectly.

It offers an interesting range of kinds of controllers (slider, buttons, pads, encoders, ...) and has a keyboard aftertouch.
It controls 4 parts simultaneously, convenient (I would the above).

We can do almost everything by spending a little time in the program.
It works without problems with a 64 bit machine (W7 for me).

I think he has a nice look that does not play. It also makes a significant weight which gives it a very rugged look.

UTILIZATION

I used it a lot at first to control Ableton Live but now I use it almost more than noon to control other machines (Virus TI,
Integra-7, BK-7m, ...) and some VST.
I preferred to disable HyperControl who took hold of the controllers to be able to program my way.

This is a formidable keyboard to control 4 parts on expander layer, split in ... in any configuration that is desired. Can play in enabling or disabling parts, and act upon each of them independently (volume, effects level, cutoff, resonance, Supernatural controllers, ...). By playing multiple sounds in parts on its machines, it is possible to get great sounds can modulate wish.

The aftertouch is very effective.

I love this keyboard for these opportunities to act on machines / vst. It is ideal for interactivity it offers.

But all is not perfect. The touch keyboard is ok but nothing special. It is not really soft and not really weighted. This is something between the two, but that is not very comfortable to play acoustic piano, EP, organ, ... on the other hand to play synth sounds, brass, strings, pads, it is the case that can act with aftertouch.

It does not allow a very fast game (unless it comes from me, it's possible). I find it easier with a piano or other keyboard softer (but unfortunately do not have aftertouch).
I do not like the two wheels separated for pitch bend.

The pads are too hard, almost unusable except to trigger sounds / sequences; nothing to do with those of Akai mpc or mpd.

It is not as bug free. I've managed to plant more than once, even if it is very rare.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years. I got used to it and it would be very difficult to do without to control my other machines / VST.

The keyboard itself is not perfect but is very suitable for playing certain types of sounds with aftertouch.
I use to complement a digital piano keyboard that gives me a better comfort for other sounds (but does not offer pitch bend and aftertouch).

I have not found a single keyboard perfect master. I wish I could find the equivalent of my old Yamaha SS8 with the controllers of the Axiom Pro.

I do not regret my purchase so far. It is solid, practical, comprehensive and gives me a great interaction with machines and VST.
