M-Audio Axiom 25 Keyboard Controller

Get Into the Action
The Axiom series of mobile USB MIDI controllers has everything it takes to get the most from your MIDI software and hardware. Semi-weighted action complete with aftertouch gives you great feel and expression for both synth parts and pianistic passages. Eight rubberized trigger pads put your drums at your fingertips for programming with feel-or easy fire samples or visual effects.

Total MIDI Control
Assign the eight rotary encoders to mixer controls like panning and effects sends, or to any synth parameters you want to control. Map the nine sliders to software mixer faders or drawbars on your virtual organ. 15 buttons*, pitch and mod wheels, and sustain and expression pedal jacks round out a tour de force of MIDI domination. Assigning controllers is simple, yet has the power to let you delve as deep as you want. Each controller can map to just about any applicable parameter in the MIDI spec, including independent channel addressing for each. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
* six buttons on the Axiom 25

Intuitive Front-Panel Programming
M-Audio Axiom MIDI controllers all feature a large backlit LCD screen for visual feedback-and the 61-key and 49-key models also place a 10-key pad right on the front panel for direct, intuitive programming. You'll also find 9 dedicated front-panel function buttons to easily access common operations like preset / program change or MIDI channel +/-, octave +/-, and transpose +/-. Use the Controller Mute button to prevent parameters from jumping when you change them, for example, then press Snapshot to transmit all current settings. 20 non-volatile memory locations instantly save and recall your favorite presets-and you can manage an entire preset library on your computer via SysEx dumps and the free Enigma software editor/librarian for PC and Mac.

Mobile Operation
The Axiom series is extremely compact and lightweight and all models are powered directly from your computer's USB bus. Choose the size that's best for your needs, then take your music anywhere you want to go.

"Excellent value..."
I would recommend this keyboard, or any of the larger models. Buy it.
Features
The endless encoders have many different modes - which will help w/ mapping to different programs. The keys feel wonderful (semi-weighted). The drum pads are similar to the trigger finger, and aren't the best - but are still very functional.
Ease of Use
The Enigma software can have a learning curve. Also, the 25-key axiom unit has less function buttons than that of it's larger brothers, so many buttons are multi-function. This can be difficult at times.
Quality
Very well constructed. Large keyboard, heavy build. I could probably throw it down a flight of stairs and it would still work fine.
Value
I purchased mine used for less than $100, so it was a really excellent value for me. Even so, I would pay full price for it any time.
