I was worried at first, as there is still no Logic Pro X driver for this, and it seemed like there never would be. Without this, the instrument mode to control logic's instruments via the encoders is non existant, the encoders have no purpose, and the faders only control master volume, nothing else. However, it is possible thanks to our great friend youtube, and once you know how to configure it with Logic Pro X correctly, this keyboard is outstanding..

To do so, search 'axiom 49 2nd gen logic pro x directlink setup' in youtube and find your way to 'James Reese's' video titled: 'M-Audio Midi Keyboard controller Direct link Fix Logic Pro X' which should be the top result.
( Here's the direct link if amazon allow links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBdsqqBPsJM )

Once you've done this, it'll work just as it should, all faders, drum pads, and encoders correctly configured, and instrument mode working a charm. From here on out this is an absolutely amazing keyboard which plays fantastically, and never leaves me reaching for my mouse/keyboard to complete tasks. Couldn't ask for anymore.

I'd give this keyboard 4.5 stars if I could, But i thought i'd round up to 5.

The fact that its USB powered is great! It had some trouble working completely with Abletlon Live 8.3, but after some research it became apparent that the makers had managed to screw up the Directlink for m-audio products, so I had to download 8.1.4 specifically for it to work correctly. (unfortunately this is the only DAW I have tried it with) It now works like a treat!

The wheels are very nicely weighted as are the keys considering its an entry level product. The keys do stick sometimes on the first push if they have been left for a while, and they can be a little loud (clunky) when released.

The encoders are a little annoying to use, but work fine. Instead of going from 1 to 10, in a seven o'clock to five o'clock position, they will turn indefinitely because it takes more than one complete revolution to get from 0-max. This can be fixed by acceleration, but it removes the finer details. Not a massive problem, but it will annoy some people.

All the buttons are back-lit nicely, apart from the transport buttons which is a little weird... that would have been nice. The pads are very sensitive, perhaps a little too much (there's some unintentional double striking, and occasionally a miss strike when the pad has been properly hit.), but with some learning i'm sure i could get to grips with them.

The LCD back-lit display is clear and bright, though its difficult to see at an angle, if the keyboard is flat on a desk in front of you for example. Not a big deal. Cant fault the faders.

It has a very handy pair of octave buttons for changing up and down octaves on the keys which can also be used to transpose (The buttons also feels very nice when depressed.).

Considering the cost of this keyboard - it is a phenominal bargain. This is a very good quality controller keyboard (ie. no internal sounds, just midi control). I have to come clean and say that I am not primarily a keyboard player but I have worked with music composition software for over fifteen years both professionally and for fun! This keyboard works superbly with a Mac running Logic Pro, MOTU DP 8, Protools 9 and Ableton Live. Its very easy to set up with the software you can download from the m-audio/avid website. The display isn't super high resolution but gives very useful feedback on the current voice or parameter selected in the software. It really feels quite solidly built and the faders, pads and rotary controls all feel very reasonable. Some of the more negative reviews on the internet really seem quite incredible considering the relatively low cost of this keyboard. I would purchase this again without hestitation. The key action doesn't exactly feel like a piano - I'd be surprised if it did, but it gives a very positive feel and the keys seem to respond quite accurately to the velocity control. I've also read that the aftertouch is very short travel - its not amazing but again really quite ok and perfectly usable.

I gave this product a 5 star purely because it makes mixing so much more easier for an amatuer like me. The extra functions on the axiom make this perfect for someone who wants to spend less time using the mouse and keyboard and still have the creativity flowing non stop. The software that is recommend with it to is brilliant as well. The guys who created the software 'Ignite are genius'. Would definitely recommend downloading that software for use with this keyboard. Just so you know you won't be able to use the full features of this keyboard with any demo version of music software, like pro tools m powered, as the you won't be allowed to set the parameters for the control functions on the keyboard up.

This is a nice keyboard, it works well and it looks good. Good build quality, feels very solid. Very happy with it.

Integrates well with Pro Tools; for each track the fader and pan controls are automatically mapped to controls on the keyboard. Transport controls are mapped as well.

Haven't used all the features yet but what I have used works flawlessly.
