M-Audio Axiom 61 MIDI Keyboard Controller with Semi-Weighted Keys and Assignable Control Surface

This is a very solid midi controller that can work well even with limited knowledge of how to map a midi controller.  The controller will automatically sync and map itself with your software and can be customized fairly easily for a midi controller.  This is a great and affordable midi controller that is a solid tool for any studio and can be used in a live setting.  There are no native sounds so if using in a live setting be aware that a computer and interface will be necessary for use in performances.  

FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

Can I plug and play?

All you have to do is make sure you download the appropriate drivers, which is detailed in the instruction manual.  After that, once you plug it in to your computer through the USB, it will automatically sync to you music creation programs.


  1. Adam’s Take

This was the first midi controller I ever bought and I still use it today.  I have read that some models have had some issues, but for me I’m going on 9 years with this midi controller and I have pumped out a ton of music on this guy.  It’s lightweight, easy to use and affordable.  While I want a Prophet, that is comparing something that costs a couple thousand to something that costs a couple hundred.  I will never regret purchasing this midi controller.
