M-Audio Intros Axiom A.I.R. MIDI Controllers At 2012 Summer NAMM Show

2012 Summer NAMM Show: M-Audio has introduced the Axiom A.I.R. Series, a new line of advanced MIDI keyboard controllers, including the Axiom A.I.R. 61, Axiom A.I.R. 49, Axiom A.I.R. 25 and the Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32.

The Axiom A.I.R. series represents the latest evolution of M-Audio’s keyboard controllers. They come with both “HyperControl” automatic control mapping technology and the new Ignite music creation software.

Each Axiom A.I.R. controller has its own unique characteristics, giving musicians a choice between four music creation solutions that are optimized for different creative preferences.

  • The Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 is made for powerful music creation on the move, with an ultra-mobile form factor, 32 velocity-sensitive mini keys, eight trigger pads and assignable low-profile knobs;
  • the Axiom A.I.R. 25 is a hybrid keyboard/pad controller, giving beat makers and groove creators space-efficient yet comprehensive control with 16 backlit drum pads, illuminated knobs and synth-action keys;
  • the Axiom A.I.R. 49 provides comprehensive control over any DAW for musicians of all types with an expanded layout of long-throw faders, illuminated buttons, backlit pads and 49 synth-action keys; and
  • the Axiom A.I.R. 61 delivers all the same expanded features as the Axiom A.I.R. 49 but with 61 ‘premium keys’ featuring TruTouch semi-weighted action.

Ignite On Board

Each Axiom A.I.R. controller will come with Ignite, a new music app, developed by A.I.R. Music Technology.

Ignite is described as ‘discrete, standalone music ideation and creation software built from the ground up to spark creative ideas and enable musicians to build songs in an organic fashion’.

The Axiom A.I.R. Series will be available from musical instrument retailers in mid-October of this year. Pricing is TBA.

      • Sorry, it kept telling me I had an error in my post. Perhaps it is because I’m in a state park with almost no cell service. Regardless, it would be nice if admin could delete my useless posts.

        • Looks like the comment was flagged for moderation – probably because it had a URL in it.

          I OK’d it.

          If your comment is flagged for moderation and you resubmit the same comment, the system will recognize the second version of the comment as a duplicate.

          I also added the rest of the images!
