M-Audio Axiom 49 MkII (2nd Gen) Keyboard MIDI Controller Reviews

9/10

Axiom 49

Absolutely fantastic MIDI controller keyboard; it is everything I needed and more!

This keyboard has many controls which are very easily assigned to applications (I use Logic, Live, and Reason). Also, the fact the it doesn\'t require drivers is a definite plus! And latency is unnoticeable.

The keys are nice and responsive. However, the keys are not very dynamic as mentioned in another review.

Also, the sliders and knobs are smooth. The facts that the eight knobs are continuous is also very useful and a welcome addition. Although, the sliders do seem to come off once of twice since I\'ve had it, but as long as you are gentle with them you should be fine!

I\'d definitely recommend this controller as it is generally well built and is filled with features - all of which is at a great price!

M-Audio XIOM 49 Review

Excellent midi keyboard. I purchased it as I needed something to control my soft-synths, and was taken in by all the various sliders, knobs and switches. The keys are responsive without being too heavy, making it great for amateur musicians. The only downsides are that the programming can be a bit complicated at times and the touch-pads can be slightly twitchy. Overall, very much worth the money.

Good controller, some dynamics weaknesses

I bought the Axiom about a week ago and have been very busy with it.

This makes for an excellent Midi controller. It's easy enough to assign all the sliders, etc, to controls in SONAR. The transport buttons take a bit more effort and I had to google around a bit, but no problem in the end. I get no synchronisation issues, the controller reacts fast.

Beware of the following if you are clasically piano trained (like me), or intend to play piano pieces on this: none of the 10 velocity curves will give you ideal results for a reasonably dynamic piece. It's hard to play quietly - and if you select a curve that lets you play quietly, then it's almost impossible to play loud parts without bashing the keys out.

Bearing in mind that it's a midi controller, though, not a piano, I'd buy it again any day!

M-Audio Axiom 49

Recently I've bought this midi keyboard and I must say this one is great! It has everything I need to make trance tracks. A lot of different controllers, plus drum pads and rather small size makes this product ideal for my needs.
One great feature of axiom's line is that rotating controllers have 360 degrees turns (one inc/dec per click) what gives a perfect control over likned parameters.
Alltogether gives great "functionality per price"!
