This little new controller is perfect if you have a home recording setup. Small, clean, effective and mobile. M-Audio has released the Axiom 25 which is all you need next to your laptop.
The Axiom is far more than just a midi controller. In our opinion these are the best features: 25 piano-style semi-weighted keys and real time control buttons and knobs to control your effects and automate things on the fly.
Here’s what M-Audio says:
The compact M-Audio® Axiom® 25 mobile controller combines all the production power and performance you need to get the most from your music software and MIDI gear. More than just a “data entry” controller, the Axiom 25 features piano-style, semi-weighted keys for a musically satisfying playing experience—yet it’s small enough to fit in a backpack. Large dynamic trigger pads make it easy to program beats and trigger one-shot samples—while the encoder knobs and buttons deliver complete real-time control over your software. DirectLink mode provides easy, automatic access to common DAW functions* including transport, mixer, track pan, and virtual instrument parameters—no complicated setup required. The Axiom 25 controller even features a sleek, angled top panel for easy viewing in any environment.Tags: axiom, controller, featured, keyboard, m-audio, midi, recording, roqzine
