Control your audio software -- don't let your audio software control you! More than just a MIDI controller, the Axiom Pro's HyperControl technology intelligently maps its transport buttons and rotary encoders to the commonly accessed parameters of your host DAW -- Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Ableton Live, Reason, or even Sibelius. HyperControl seamlessly integrates the Axiom Pro 25 with virtual instruments, and provides tactile control over your mixes. If you'd like to change presets on your virtual piano plugin without constantly reaching over to hold down the mouse, the M-Audio Axiom Pro 25 is for you. And at under 19 inches wide, it fits seamlessly into any setup.
Plug in the included USB cable to initiate HyperControl, a constant two-way link between the Axiom Pro 25 and your DAW. This means the Axiom Pro 25's controls are always in sync with your software's active parameters. The graphic LCD screen constantly updates to tell you what parameters are being controlled. Unlike other MIDI-mapping technologies, HyperControl receives "feedback" from the host software. And HyperControl lets you send more than just MIDI data -- you can assign the numeric keys or trigger pads to functions in your DAW. Create new tracks, save a session, toggle between views, and more -- directly from your Axiom Pro 25. That obscure three-fingered keyboard shortcut that you can never remember is now mapped to #1 on the Axiom Pro's numeric keypad.
Made for Making Music
Aching to stretch out those keyboard chops on the Mini Grand or Velvet virtual piano that came bundled with Pro Tools? Drop the mouse and get your hands on the 25 TruTouch keys (and 65 MIDI-assignable controls) on the Axiom Pro 25. This is a truly comfortable semi-weighted keyboard housed in a lightweight chassis. You'll find inputs on the back for both sustain and expression pedals, plus pitch bend and modulation wheels left of the keyboard. Octave buttons give you access to a full 88 notes. Or if drums are more your speed, try laying down a rhythm on the MPC-style drum trigger pads -- the Axiom Pro 25's LCD screen gives you a numeric value to let you know how hard or soft you're hitting. Use these eight rubberized pads to create beats with ReDrum in Reason, or use your virtual drum machine of choice. With all the great software instruments available these days, who needs a big synth taking up valuable desk space in your home studio?
On The Surface...
Trying to mouse a knob onscreen can be an exercise in frustration. That's why the Axiom Pro 25 gives you 8 smooth rotary encoders that automatically map to your DAW and virtual instruments. Want to play with amp settings in Eleven Free? The Axiom's knobs can tweak gain, tremolo, and speaker cabinet type in real time. You can even map its buttons to any QWERTY commands that you use in your audio software. You'll find that even if you're really not that much of a keyboardist, the Axiom Pro 25 packs a lot of control-surface power into a tiny desktop footprint. And the Axiom Pro 25 is USB-bus-powered, so you don't even need a power brick to get started. Just connect the USB cable to your computer and you'll be controlling your DAW -- without a mouse.

Enhanced DAW Integration
Thanks to revolutionary M-Audio HyperControl technology, your Axiom Pro 25 controller will automatically map to commonly used parameters of popular software instruments and digital audio workstations including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic and Reason* systems. 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 controllers offer mapping, only the M-Audio Axiom Pro 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 four 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. You can even control software instruments without opening them.
DAW Transport and Track Navigation
The six 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.
With great feel in a lightweight chassis, the Axiom Pro 25 controller provides a new level of creative inspiration. The M-Audio TruTouch(TM) 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(tm), Pro Tools LE(r) or Pro Tools|HD(r) 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.
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.
