Control Your Software Synths with This Expressive Keyboard!

The M-Audio Axiom AIR 61 keyboard controller puts 61 semi-weighted keys and a wide spread of trigger pads, encoders, and faders at your fingertips, giving you many ways to translate your musical ideas into fully produced tracks. In addition to hands-on controls, the Axiom AIR 61 comes with Avid Pro Tools Express and Ignite by AIR music creation software, so you can create and share music right out of the box. With this comprehensive USB/MIDI controller, you have complete control over your virtual instruments and plug-ins -- just connect the Axiom AIR 61 to your computer (Mac or PC) for seamless integration with Pro Tools or any major digital audio workstation (DAW).

Impressive Set of Expressive Controls

So named for its 61 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, the Axiom AIR 61 offers the feel of a synth keyboard plus more than enough octaves to get your music from controller to computer. Octave/Transpose buttons provide one-touch access to the entire note range, in any key, and selectable velocity curves match your playing style so that during a session, your focus is on your music, not your gear. Assignable pitch bend and modulation performance wheels are there to help put the human touch on your notes.

What's more, the Axiom AIR 61 sports assignable LED lit buttons and rotary encoder knobs for easy sound tweaking, a dozen illuminated velocity-sensitive pads for tapping in beats, 9 comfortable 70 mm faders, and dedicated transport and software navigation buttons for simplified recording. Its handy Drum Pad Learn feature, Identify button, and HyperControl interactive controller mapping help speed up your workflow, and 128 memory locations save your custom settings so you never forget your favorites.

This Controller Pairs Perfectly with Pro Tools and Ignite

Want to make music now? No problem -- the Axiom AIR 61 packs Avid Pro Tools Express and Ignite by AIR music creation software, two complementary software programs that work hand and hand to deliver polished pieces to your DAW. Jot down and arrange your song ideas using Ignite, and then use Ignite material as fodder for professionally produced tracks within Pro Tools Express.

Capture your musical ideas on the fly with Ignite. Featuring a user-friendly graphic interface, Ignite makes it easy to transform bare bones melodies and chords into complete songs. Ignite includes 275 instrument sounds, as well as easy distribution options for sharing your work on SoundCloud or importing them to Pro Tools or your DAW.

With Pro Tools Express, you can compose, record, edit, and mix using a wealth of powered effect plug-ins, virtual instruments, and high-end production tools. Work with 16 simultaneous stereo or mono audio tracks, and create original sounds with the included Boom, Xpand2, and Structure Free player virtual instruments from AIR Music Technology. Session file compatibility with Avid's entire Pro Tools line means you can take your work from Express to any other studio's Pro Tools session. It comes with an iLok 2 USB key.
