M-Audio MIDI Controllers
There's no controller more classic than the keyboard, and that's the type you'll find in the M-Audio lineup. Knowing how versatile MIDI can be, it's great to see that the hardware offers every bit as much choice - there's a keyboard here to suit any performance style or studio application. For instance, if you use a MIDI keyboard to perform complex piano pieces that need a full-range manual, check out the M-Audio Keystation 88 MKII. On the other hand, if you want a keyboard that can serve as a compact cuing station in a DJ booth, take a look at the Oxygen 25 MKIV, which comes with the added power of a built-in pad controller section.
Are you outfitting a high-end professional studio? If so, don't miss the M-Audio Axiom AIR 49 and Axiom AIR 61 MIDI controllers. Designed for the most demanding production environments, they offer a ton of useful features including long-throw faders and large pad sections. You can make it easier to get up and running with an Axiom AIR controller if you choose a bundle like the M-Audio Axiom AIR 49 Keyboard Controller Package 1: this kit includes the keyboard, a sustain pedal, gig bag and even a copy of Ableton Live 9 Intro so you'll be ready to create even if you're starting from scratch.
In its purest form, that's what M-Audio MIDI controllers really are: tools for creating your musical vision. When you pair them up with your favorite MIDI hardware or software, these keyboard controllers make production and performance an experience that's rewarding, not to mention just plain fun. It doesn't matter if you're new to MIDI or if you've been using it for years - an M-Audio controller is sure to serve you well.
