M-Audio have announced their new Axiom A.I.R. series of keyboard controllers.
Axiom A.I.R. controllers feature HyperControl automatic control mapping technology and Ignite music creation software.
The Axiom A.I.R. Series’ name is derived from both the M-Audio Axiom product line and from A.I.R. Music Technology.
Each Axiom A.I.R. controller has its own characteristics, giving musicians a choice between four music creation solutions designed to be optimized for different creative preferences. The Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 features 32 velocity-sensitive mini keys, eight trigger pads and assignable knobs; the Axiom A.I.R. 25 is a hybrid keyboard/pad controller, with 16 backlit drum pads, illuminated knobs and synth-action keys; the Axiom A.I.R. 49 provides control over a DAW for musicians 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 the same expanded features as the Axiom A.I.R. 49 but with 61 keys featuring TruTouch semi-weighted action.
Each Axiom A.I.R. controller will come with Ignite software.
The Axiom A.I.R. Series will be available from musical instrument retailers in mid-October of this year. M-Audio will unveil the Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 at booth# 800 at the 2012 Summer NAMM show in Nashville, Tennessee from July 12-14.
