The Perfect Centerpiece for Your Studio! Take command of your studio while achieving higher levels of musical expression with Axiom AIR 49 from M-Audio.

Offering unprecedented control, Axiom AIR 49 brings together unmatched ease-of-use plus empowering software to form the ultimate studio centerpiece. Get inspired by 49 synth-action keys—with aftertouch. The illuminated pads are velocity sensitive and even respond to pressure.

Experience total hands-on control of your sessions using assignable LED lit buttons and rotary encoder knobs, long-throw faders, plus an array of dedicated transport and software navigation buttons. HyperControl® interactive controller mapping unites your hardware and software so you can start working faster. Completing this powerful package are two complementary software selections: Avid® Pro Tools® Express and Ignite by AIR music creation software. Together, they deliver a comprehensive path for transforming the ideas in your head into a finished piece of music.

Software Synergy
Your Axiom AIR 49 hardware comes complete with both Avid Pro Tools Express and Ignite from AIR Music Technology (downloadable below). These two programs can work alone or together to help you realize your musical dreams. Capture and arrange your ideas using Ignite, then use those tracks as the foundation for your professional production with Pro Tools Express.

Ableton Live Lite
Ableton Live Lite delivers much of the functionality of Ableton Live—the revolutionary, multi-award winning music production solution that allows you to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise and edit your musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. Live brings your acoustic, electronic and virtual instruments—as well as your digital audio recordings and MIDI sequences—together in a single interface with unparalleled ease of use.

Ignite
Ignite provides a refreshingly original and musician-centric way to quickly capture, combine, and arrange your musical ideas. The intuitive graphic interface encourages you to experiment and explore new directions. Smart MIDI Chord and Phrase Players empower your ideas and bring them to life through over 275 superior instruments sounds created by AIR Music Technology. When you’re ready to collaborate with other musicians or take your ideas to the next level, you can share them through SoundCloud, or export your WAV, MP3 and MIDI files and import them into Pro Tools—or any DAW software. Best of all, Ignite offers seamless integration with your M-Audio keyboard controller, with no set-up chores to perform.
