M-Audio introduced a new series of USB MIDI keyboards designed for Mac using musicians.

The Axiom Pro comes in 25-, 49- and 61-key models and integrates with many digital audio workstations (DAW), including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic and Reason. M-Audio's HyperControl technology is used with the keyboards to automatically map keyboard controls to commonly accessed parameters in software instruments and DAWs.

The keyboards also combine MIDI control with ASCII keystrokes, allowing users to assign any button to send QWERTY key commands like cut and paste or undo directly to the host software.

The Axiom Pro 49 is shipping and costs US$599.95. The Axiom Pro 61 is expected to ship in the first quarter of 2009 and will cost $699.95. M-Audio said pricing and availability for the Axiom Pro 25 will be announced at a later date.
