Reviews
“The Axiom's major features as a keyboard controller are solid and as they should be. The added features of knobs, sliders, and drum pads make it a creative tool. The 20 user preset layouts are the killer feature - I can jump between Reason & Pro Tools and use the Axiom fully for both.”
- Joe Randeen, HowAudio.com
"M-Audio's modus operandi has always been to out-feature...the competition, and their MIDI keyboards tend to offer not just the generous quantity of controls for the price, but impressive flexibility, and clarity about what's going on, when it's time to program them."
- Keyboard, February 2007
“(The Axiom 25) boasts channel aftertouch and an excellent feel, and I reveled in what I reckoned to be the perfect compromise between a weighted piano action and the lighter response of a typical synth.”
