The Axiom Pro 25 from M-Audio is an extremely powerful USB MIDI controller that features 25 semi-weighted keys, a useful set of trigger pads & controls, and custom software called "HyperControl" that runs within the device itself that automatically maps its hardware controls to Pro Tools and other popular DAW programs. The idea behind the Axiom Pro is to get the user away from their computer keyboard and mouse, and to keep their focus on the creative act of making music. The HyperControl software plays a huge part in allowing the user to constantly follow their inspiration-- rather than constantly click through menus with a mouse. HyperControl seamlessly syncs the Axiom Pro's knobs, pads, display, and controls with DAW software and plug-ins running on your computer. You use buttons on the Axiom Pro to navigate to different virtual instruments and screens in your audio software. The graphic LCD display on the Axiom Pro will follow along as you work with your DAW, updating any necessary information about the current task being carrying out.

The Axiom Pro is the next generation of the popular Axiom series of keyboard controllers from M-Audio. In an effort to outdo themselves once again, the designers paid great attention to the playability of the keys. After all, one of the most important aspects of a MIDI keyboard controller is its ability to perform as an emotive musical instrument. The result of this effort is the Axiom Pro's piano-style "TruTouch" semi-weighted keys. Featuring a professional playing action designed to satisfy the most seasoned of musicians, even beginners will appreciate this keyboard's ability to translate the emotional subtleties of a simple melody.

When recording studios quickly transitioned from traditional hardware to being almost entirely computer based, it wasn't long before users longed for tactile, hands-on control. Dedicated MIDI software controllers soon appeared on the market to fill in this gap. The Axiom Pro gives you all of the hands-on control you need for your studio, with a first class piano-style keyboard built-in. The eight velocity-sensitive pads are perfect for sequencing beats, or for firing off samples and keystrokes. The transport buttons and function keys combined with the powerful HyperControl software make the Axiom Pro the ultimate all-in-one keyboard controller for Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live, Reason, and Cubase.

Enhanced DAW Integration with HyperControl Technology

Thanks to revolutionary M-Audio HyperControl technology, your Axiom Pro 25 -key MIDI 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 more DAW compatibility). 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 MIDI 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. The M-Audio Axiom Pro lets you 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.

Expressive Playability
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.

Different Strokes
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.
