Advanced MIDI mapping and smooth DAW compatibility in a powerful, compact controller.
The M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 keyboard controller builds on the acclaimed Axiom 25, delivering premium TruTouch action, proprietary HyperControl MIDI-mapping technology, and other cutting-edge enhancements in a compact MIDI controller perfect for tight spaces. HyperControl automatically maps the keyboard's 28 controls to commonly accessed parameters in digital audio workstations including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, and Reason, as well as software instruments. The constant 2-way link with your host DAW means the keyboard's controls are always in sync with your software's active parameters. The intuitive graphic LCD constantly updates the current values, which ensures seamless editing and prevents parameter jumps—even when plug-ins are closed. Toggle instantly between Mixer and Instrument control modes. Map buttons to send QWERTY key commands right from the M-Audio Axiom Pro 25. Save settings to 50 memory locations—each with 4 profiles of quick recall via the intuitive graphic LCD. Now you can control your entire session right from your Axiom Pro 25 Controller.
Enhanced DAW Integration with HyperControl Technology
Thanks to revolutionary M-Audio HyperControl technology, your Axiom Pro 25 controller will automatically map to commonly used parameters of popular software instruments and digital audio workstations including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, and Reason systems (see below for others). HyperControl updates the virtual instrument or track parameter mappings of each control in real time as you sequence—it doesn't get any easier.
The HyperControl Difference
While other controllers offer mapping, the M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 line has HyperControl technology. HyperControl synchronizes Axiom Pro with your DAW, ensuring that your hardware and software collaborate to form a single work environment. The technology utilizes the Axiom Pro 25 graphic LCD to group software controls together in a modular fashion. Similar controls are organized in named groups and accessed via 4 dedicated softkeys, which are continually updated to reflect the mapped parameters. A dedicated button toggles between Mixer and Instrument modes for instant hands-on control of all of your software's functionality. Dedicated Track buttons allow sequential navigation of your mixer and instantaneous mapping of software instruments within the selected track. You can even control software instruments without opening them.
DAW Transport and Track Navigation
The 6 dedicated transport buttons on the Axiom Pro 25 controller give you immediate hands-on access to all of your host DAW's playback and recording controls. Unlike other all-or-nothing systems, Axiom Pro 25 also features a transport-only mode. This option lets you access DAW transports and track navigation via HyperControl technology, while creating and controlling your own custom MIDI assignments for the trigger pads, buttons, and encoders.
With great feel in a lightweight chassis, the Axiom Pro 25 controller provides a new level of creative inspiration. The M-Audio TruTouch keybed combines professional semi-weighted action with advanced high-speed keybed scanning technology for an ultra-expressive playing experience. Assignable Aftertouch adds an extra measure of expression and control.
The Ultimate Pro Tools Keyboard Controller
Whether you are working on a Pro Tools M-Powered, Pro Tools LE, or Pro Tools"HD system, the Axiom Pro MIDI controllers set a new standard for Pro Tools keyboard control. Advanced M-Audio HyperControl technology puts instant access to all of your Pro Tools parameters at your fingertips—including mixing, individual track functionality, and unparalleled control of virtual instruments such as Xpand!, Strike, and Hybrid.
The Axiom Pro keyboard controller line is the first to combine MIDI control with ASCII keystrokes. You can assign any button on Axiom Pro 25 to send ASCII messages accessing any of the available QWERTY keyboard shortcuts within your host DAW. Imagine the possibilities with Copy, Paste, Duplicate, New Track—anything you want to assign.
Complete MIDI Control
With an amazing 28 MIDI-assignable controls, the Axiom Pro 25 puts complete session control in one place. The 8 velocity-sensitive trigger pads integrate acclaimed M-Audio Trigger Finger technology for laying down rhythm tracks or triggering loops and samples. Smoothly control parameters like filters, EQ, and panning with the 8 rotary encoder knobs. The keyboard's extensive controllers also include a data/octave button, pitch bend and mod wheels, AfterTouch and dual assignable pedal jacks. In addition to USB connectivity, you'll also find traditional MIDI In and MIDI Out ports for connecting external MIDI devices.
The Axiom Pro 25 keyboard has 50 memory locations—each with 4 quick-access profiles of controller assignments—allowing you to easily create and manage your own extensive library of presets with unprecedented power, ease and flexibility.
Take advantage of the Axiom Pro 25's advanced features, portability, and price.

Comments about M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller:
After playing a show and spilling beer on my Gen 1 Axiom 49 rendering it broke, I was in search for a more compact controller with many versatile features (mainly to save desk space and to make traveling to shows easier given the smaller size). I was already familiar with the Axiom lines, having owned one, but I never was the true beauty of the line until I purchased the Axiom 25 Pro. The Pro is almost the same as any other Axiom model, however it incorporates HyperTouch technology, which makes MIDI mapping a dream. If you are looking for a compact 25 key controller with all the bells and whistles, look no further. I use it with Logic Pro 9, Ableton Live Suite, Reason, and various plug-ins. Never had a problem with it, and don't think I will for many years to come.
Comments about M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller:
First thing to notice about new gear with me is the weight. Does it have the weight that says " I can survive without you, pal. I'm tough. I made it halfway through Failure To Launch."The Axiom delivered, and then it was time for set up. Or should I say, plug in the usb and launch Logic, set up a track and get to it?
I will say this, at first it wasn't responding to my plugins and instruments the way it should with the knobs, but the drum pads and keys worked fine so I ignored it for a few days. Then I bothered to download an update on the driver, problem solved. Im also running a novation mlkzero with a presonus faderport so my system has a few things to think about when I run logic, I figured that was part of the issue.
Once I got the update, the Axiom worked and still works like a dream. A few youtube video tutorials and I was making instruments, plugins, and obsessing over the awesome response of the keys. Not to mention how silky smooth all the buttons are.
Features - 9, simply because even though they are pretty nice, I find myself not using all of them. I use the keyboard and the drum pads, and thats about it. For all the editing I use 60% mouse and keyboard, 40% novation controller. Then for automation and transport I use the faderport and mouse, so no need for the ones on the Axiom. However, if I didnt have any of these extra pieces of hardware I would only need an interface, a computer, and my Axiom Pro 25 to make a very nice beat, a groovy bassline, a subtle pad progression, arps, and maybe a little piano after some midi editing ( I like to use a bigger keyboard for piano tracks )
So thats the 9.
Value is a 10, see above.
Quality is a ten. The Axiom has that weight I like, it has been taking quite a beating lately with some of the drums Ive been making and it feels as good as new.
Buy it, and if you can, call MF on the phone and talk to a rep. They look out for you. My guy got me a free flashdrive, and around 40 bucks off the total order. Good people, musicians like you that want to make sure you shop again. Who can say no to that?
And as for the other gear I got from MF, it totally made the difference in the studio.
Overall, the Axiom Pro is like a sexy redhead. The type that makes you think to yourself "Damn, where have you been all my life?"
