The M-Audio Axiom 61 USB MIDI Controller features 61 piano-style, semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, designed to provide you with a realistic performance feel. It has eight dynamic Trigger Finger pads for programming beats. The pads can be MIDI assigned or automatically linked with your DAW via DirectLink. The Axiom 61 can be used as a USB MIDI input device, a MIDI interface and a control surface.
Using M-Audio's DirectLink technology, the Axiom 61 controls can be automatically mapped to common DAW parameters, enabling you to use its eight knobs, nine buttons and 9 sliders for hands on control of your software. Axiom Instrument mode provides you with automatic mapping and control of the parameters of DirectLink compatible virtual instruments. With its backlit LCD display, the Axiom 61 can provide on-screen displays of parameters, settings and track names from your compatible DAW software. The Axiom 61 features standard five-pin MIDI inputs and outputs for controlling external MIDI hardware. It can also act as a MIDI interface.
