Shatter musical barriers and expectations with the Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 from M-Audio. Uniting serious power and exceptional ease-of-use, the Axiom A.I.R Mini 32 is the ultimate tool for the mobile musician. This compact controller provides 32 great-feeling mini keys with plenty of room to play. Take control of your sessions with eight knobs, eight drum pads, plus transport and software navigation buttons. M-Audio's HyperControl technology instantly assigns the controls to work with your recording software. Completing this powerful package is the included Ignite music creation software-providing the fastest path for transforming the ideas in your head into a finished piece of music.

Take Control
The Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 offers extensive control, yet remains simple to use. As stated above, the HyperControl technology instantly maps the control surface to work flawlessly with your recording software, so there are no set-up chores required. Customize your setup right from the keyboard - no editing software required. Save your favorites to the 10 memory locations for instant recall. Add to that dedicated transport and track select buttons for true Best-In-Class capabilities.

Space-Saving Style
Ideal for the on-the-go or laptop musician, the compact Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 serves up 8 responsive pads and 32 velocity-sensing mini-keys, opening new paths to expressive performance. Choose a velocity curve to match your playing. Pitch Bend, Modulation, and Sustain buttons add serious performance capabilities. Octave shift keys provide access to the entire MIDI note range.

A New Approach to Making Music
With Ignite, you can now capture your ideas quickly with professional results. Individual musical ideas are captured as phrases, simply called clips. Multiple clips can be played back together, or even grouped to create more complex phrases and song sections. Ignite provides seamless integration with any current M-Audio keyboard controller. Once connected to your computer, the key parameters will be automatically assigned, or mapped, to the front panel controllers. This tight integration provides an out-of-the-box solution that simply works-with no setup chores to perform.

Sound Your Best
Included with Ignite are over 275 remarkable instrument sounds developed by A.I.R. Music Technology. In addition to a versatile arpeggiator, Smart MIDI technology provides both a Chord Player and a Phrase Player that can introduce new musical parts to enhance your production-even a drum pattern. Email your ideas to the rest of the band. Share your musical ideas and songs with other musicians through SoundCloud-all without ever leaving Ignite. Plus, you can export WAV, MP3 and MIDI files, and then import them into any DAW recording software-including Pro Tools.

This midi controller is very useful for someone who likes to compose every time of the day. It is very small, very light, you can carry it with you in your bag. If you are an active composer with a good home studio and you want to travel to another country but still composing, you can travel with your laptop and this little keyboard. The keys are very small and at first it can be difficult to play but then you get use to it. The software is OK, you can do amazing things, like Garageband. But you can also use this keyboard with other great softwares like Reason, Digital Performer, Pro Tools, Logic, etc. Obviously, there much better midi controllers, but this one is useful as a Mobile Studio.

I own many M-audio products but I can't believe they actually released this product as is. Yes, definitely a great idea for those of us with limited desktop space. I thought it would be perfect with the small pads included for limited drum work and looping. Unfortunately, this looks/feels like a cheap prototype. Come on M-audio, you used to do research and development before releasing a product...

The biggest problem was the quality. The keys were uneven and the box and factory packaging it was sent in was super flimsy. When I plugged it in the keys had different outputs when pushed at the same velocities and the pads slid around under the top cover (not like my trigger finger at all). Yeah, I know it was inexpensive, but inexpensive didn't used to mean cheap from M-audio.

It was so unacceptable that I didn't even test any of the other functions like directlink/hyperlink, so I can't speak to that or to the software.

            Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR Mini 32 MIDI Controller:

            Yeah the software is pretty lame,which is why people have been compaining about this, but that's not why I bought the keyboard...

            I bought the keyboard forrr they keyboard!

            It's a nice little tool too. Nobs and pad are a little loose but keys feel tight and responsive. If you buy this,you shouldn't expect to be getting a maschine, ya know? But for the price, I definitely complain. Especially since it came with the Korg NanoKontrol for free.

            Comments about M-Audio Axiom AIR Mini 32 MIDI Controller:

            This is an okay practice or carry keyboard, and would work well enough with a good laptop for a garage band. It's lightweight, solid enough that you could drop it down a flight of stairs and it Might not break (haven't actually tried), and works well enough with software you already have if you're "serious" about PC synth. In other words, I haven't tried the bundled software. Haven't noticed any latency from it. I have it plugged into a USB 3.0 port, although I'm not sure if that would make a difference.

              I like the compact and portable aspect of it.

              However the velocity sensitivity of the pads and the keys are not accurate.
