A nice lightweight keyboard which I like to use not least because it has nine drawbar sliders which makes it ideal as a Hammond B3 clone. I plug this keyboard into an AKAI EIE Pro Audio/midi interface and this plugs into my Laptop via USB link. The software that I use is NI (Native Instruments) Vintage Organs samples of which can be heard in the recordings elsewhere in this website.

The Axiom 61 features piano-style, semi-weighted keys for what I find to be a richly rewarding musical experience. I do stress however that this is a midi controller and can only play music when coupled with a computer.

The sales blurb goes something like this.

The M-Audio Axiom 61 controller combines all the production power and performance you need to get the most from your music software and MIDI gear. More than just a “data entry” controller, the Axiom 61 features piano-style, semi-weighted keys for a musically satisfying playing experience. Large dynamic trigger pads make it easy to program beats and trigger one-shot samples—while the encoder knobs, faders, and buttons deliver complete real-time control over your software. DirectLink mode provides easy, automatic access to common DAW functions including transport, mixer, track pan, and virtual instrument parameters—no complicated setup required. Axiom 61 even features a sleek, angled top panel for easy viewing in any environment.
