      Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR 25 MIDI Controller:

      I bought this controller to interface its pads with Akai's iMPC pro App for iPad, and other iPad Apps. I had to do a little digging into the manual, no problem, it was easy to program for sure. Matter of fact programming setups and saving them is very easy compared to any controller I have ever used. In order to use it with my iPad Air, I purchased the Focusrite itrack dock from Musicians Friend. These two pieces of gear make a great combo for lightning iPads. There are cons however to this beauty of a keyboard controller, namely the Pots or knobs. Oh boy are they bad. M-audio used endless pots that either value up/down at a very slow rate, or in big spurts when you get frustrated. So forget about controlling cutoff and resonance in your EDM. Not sure if firmware can fix the Pot problem? Other than that, it is a cosmetically attractive board, with quality construction (keys, pads, display).

      • Functional

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Daw Recording
        • Midi Trigger

        Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR 25 MIDI Controller:

        I bought this to use as a midi trigger for Virtual Instruments in REAPER recording. It works great as a trigger, but I am also using it as control surface. It has a small footprint and can switch to higher or lower octaves at the touch of a switch. It is easy to assign the pads, faders and encoders.
        The drum pads are a bit tricky to use as far as velocity control, so I tend to just use the ivories instead.
        Great controller in general. Works great with REAPER.

            I bought this keyboard to use when I can't sit at my normal keys and play. I'm disabled and always want to play, but it's not always an option. This little portable has nice keys, the knobs & stuff all immediately recognized by every app I use: Massive, Kontact, FL Studio, etc., the display is nice. Good controller for the price!

                  Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR 25 MIDI Controller:

                  You won't go wrong with this keyboard. The keys have a nice feel to them and the controls and pads are infact very useful. Here's the best part for me, Ignite. Ignite lets you lay down ideas right out of the box. Well not right out of the box because you have to download it, but when you do you get a free addition to this control board that alone is worth the price of admission.

                  The keyboard doesn't come with a power supply. I thought this was a problem at first but when I realized it doesn't need one for it to work perfectly with a computer, I got a big smile on my face. After watching the videos and downloading the software, I was up and running. Creating songs is easy and the instruments are great.

                  Buy one, buy two, heck buy one for everyone.

                    Good looking product but the software would not download from the site. Very frustrating. I don't understand why the software needed for the product to operate is not included in cd format. This will be a return.

                      Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR 25 MIDI Controller:

                      I was excited to receive the Axiom Air 25, but ended up returning it because the HyperControl software was incompatible with Logic Pro X running on the latest Mac OS X, despite what was indicated in the product description. After updating firmware, software, etc., and checking the M-Audio forums, it quickly became clear (and disappointing) that this was only going to work by manually programming everything--doable, but definitely not what I was expecting and made the product less valuable to me. Responses from the manufacturer on the forum seemed to indicate that an update would be forthcoming at some point in the future, but that was many months ago. There were reports of some workarounds, but nothing seemed to work for me.

                        Fantastic midi controller! Does everything you could ask for your personal work flow! Design and functionality are outstanding! Playability is something out of this world! The keys play smooth as butter, and the pads are the best for making beats. It integrates seemlessly with most DAWs like Pro Tools, Logic, and Ableton Live. But it really shines in the included Ignite Software. Excellent product! Way to go Musicians Friend on getting them super fast! I love it!
