      I like the compact and portable aspect of it.

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

      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.

      Best Uses

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

        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.

        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.

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

                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.
