Price comparison


1.Has backlit LED buttons
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
Buttons will light up when pressed, resulting in better visibility to users.
2.Has a display
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.


The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.


Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.


We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.

Controls & Buttons

1.Has octave buttons
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
The octave buttons are used to shift the keyboard up or down in one octave increments. This extends the range of the keyboard in either direction, which lets you play notes that lie outside the number of keys available.
2.number of buttons


The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
3.Has a transport control section
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
The transport controls are used to control playback, set the position of the playhead, start recording, activate the cycle region, or to move to the project start or end.
4.number of knobs


More knobs (rotating controls) can give the user more dedicated control over the device – e.g., volume, effects, EQs, etc. Types of knobs may differ between endless type or step type.
5.number of faders


Faders can be either channel volume faders, pitch sliders, crossfaders or even EQs.
6.Has a modulation wheel
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
The mod wheel is used to add expression, or to modulate (change) various elements of a sound or sample.

Keys & Pads

1.Has semi-weighted keys
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
Similar to a weighted action keys, but with less resistance and a slightly springier release, semi-weighted keys are popular with many players. If you don’t need realistic piano response, but also don’t care for spring-loaded synth actions, a semi-weighted keyboard might be ideal for you.
2.total keys


The amount of keys the controller has on the keyboard.
3.has velocity-sensitive pads
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
Velocity-sensitive drum pads allow you to modify the sound sample's pitch depending on how quickly you hit the pads. They provide a more natural audio experience, as the pitch depends on your movement, just like when playing the drums live.
4.drum pads


The pads section is ideal to trigger loops and samples, using your finger drum skills.


1.Has a MIDI-Out port
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
The MIDI-Out port is used for transmitting data.

3.Has a MIDI-In port
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
MIDI-In Port allows data to be received by a MIDI-compliant device. The “in” port enables the MIDI keyboard to be controlled by an external device or sequencer.
4.Has an input/connector for the expression pedal
M-Audio Axiom Pro 25
Dedicated expression pedals let you have a hands-free control over your keyboard's volume, vibrato, and more.
