Axiom Pro is a class-compliant device that offers basic functionality on Windows XP
and Vista systems without having to install additional drivers. You can simply connect
Axiom Pro to your computer, switch on the computer and the controller, and be
ready to go.1
However, M-Audio strongly recommends that Windows users install the Axiom Pro
drivers from the included CD-ROM or (if Internet access is available) the most recent
drivers from the M-Audio website. These drivers add functionality and allow you to:
(1) use Axiom Pro with more than one application at the same time, (2) use long system
exclusive (SysEx) commands, and (3) simultaneously use other class-compliant USB
devices with audio capabilities.
The M-Audio driver installation procedure for Windows is described in section two of
this guide.
Mac OS X Users
The class-compliant drivers built into Mac OS X provide full support for all features of
Axiom Pro. This means that no additional M-Audio drivers are necessary (or available)
when using Axiom Pro on Mac OS X—simply connect the controller keyboard to the
computer using the supplied USB cable, configure your audio software and start making
music.
M-Audio HyperControl TM
An important new feature in the Axiom Pro line of controllers is the support of M-Audio’s
HyperControl system. HyperControl allows for bi-directional communication between
Axiom Pro and your audio software, keeping your keyboard and software synchronized
at all times. Furthermore, HyperControl gives you “out of the box” control over many
host applications (such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Reason, and Cubase) and automatically
configures knobs, buttons, and other controls to work with your software.
Since HyperControl integration varies from one application to another, the installation
and usage of HyperControl Mode is covered in separate User Guides for each
supported application. To learn more about how to install, configure and use
HyperControl, see the application-specific HyperControl User Guide on the included
CD-ROM, or the Axiom Pro support pages on www.m-audio.com.
The HyperControl installation files for applications supported at time of print are
included on the Axiom Pro CD-ROM. Check www.m-audio.com for HyperControl
installation files for additional applications and updates.

W
the computer will search for the M-Audio DFU (device firmware upgrade tool)
and display a Found New Hardware Wizard. The M-Audio DFU is a component
of Axiom Pro that is enabled when the M-Audio drivers are installed, but is not
necessary for class-compliant operation. You have the following options:
A. C
ancel the Found New Hardware Wizard and start using Axiom Pro
immediately.
he Found New Hardware Wizard will appear every time your computer
T
detects that the device is connected (e.g. upon computer or device restart, or
disconnecting/reconnecting Axiom Pro).
B. F
ollow the Found New Hardware Wizard until it gives the option not to be
prompted to install this hardware again.
Windows Vista Users:
• Select “Don’t show this message again for this device” in the first screen
that appears.
• Click “Continue” in the confirmation screen that follows.
Windows XP Users:
• In the first screen, select ”No, not this time” and click “Next”
• In the second screen, select “Install the software automatically” and click
“Next”
• Finally, make sure the check box labeled “Don’t prompt me again to
install this software” is active, then click Finish.
C. Install the M-Audio drivers as described in the “Installation Instructions for
Windows XP and Vista” section of this Quick Start Guide. After these drivers
have been installed, the Found New Hardware Wizard for the M-Audio DFU
will no longer be displayed.
NOTE: M-Audio strongly recommends that Windows XP and Vista users
install the Axiom Pro drivers by following the instructions in the following
section of this guide.

Please make sure that Axiom Pro is disconnected from your computer when
the M-Audio drivers are being installed. The following instructions will indicate when you
should connect the controller keyboard to your computer.
1.We recommend that you download the most recent drivers by going to the
Support > Drivers & Updates page at www.m-audio.com. This ensures that you have
the newest drivers available. If you do not have Internet access, insert the Axiom Pro
CD-ROM into your computer to install the drivers that came with your controller.
2.

If you are installing drivers from the Axiom Pro CD-ROM, the computer will
automatically display the interactive install screen when the CD-ROM is inserted. If
your computer fails to launch this application, you can manually start it by clicking
on Start > My Computer 2 > Axiom Pro. Next, select “Axiom Pro Driver Installer”
from the menu and click “Install.”
<
If you are installing drivers from www.m-audio.com, simply double-click the file once
it has finished downloading.
Follow the driver installer’s on-screen direction prompts.
3.At various points in this installation process, you may be notified that the driver being
installed has not passed Windows Logo Testing, or asked whether the program you wish
to run is a trusted application. Click “Continue Anyway” (Windows XP) 1 or “Install”
(Windows Vista) 2 to proceed with installation.

Software Setup and Configuration
Hosted Mode
When using Axiom Pro in “hosted” mode (i.e., with a computer), you may need to set up
your music software to send and receive MIDI data from Axiom Pro. This process varies
from application to application, but is usually done through a “Preferences” or “Setup”
menu. Refer to your software’s documentation to learn how to do this.
You may also need to configure the application’s MIDI tracks and/or HyperControl
integration to send and receive signals from the correct input and output ports of
Axiom Pro. The controller will appear as four input ports and two output ports:
MIDI Input sources (as seen in your music software)
3
• Axiom Pro 61 4 USB A In
The various controls (keys, pads, buttons, knobs, etc.) of Axiom Pro generate
MIDI data on this port by default, and selecting this port within your music
software will allow you to record this data. In most cases, this port should be
selected to record your performances.
• Axiom Pro 61 HyperControl In
This port is reserved for HyperControl data only. To learn more about
HyperControl, see the application-specific HyperControl User Guide on the
included CD-ROM, or the Axiom Pro support pages on www.m-audio.com.
• Axiom Pro 61 MIDI In
This corresponds to the hardware MIDI Input port on the back of the keyboard.
•

This corresponds to USB MIDI port B within the Axiom Pro keyboard. If you
have configured any of the Axiom Pro controls to transmit data on this port,
you will need to select “Axiom Pro 61 USB B In” within you music software to
record the data generated by these controls. Please see the Axiom Pro User
Guide to learn how this port can be selected and when it can be used.

Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) users:
Please note that in Mac OS X 10.4, Axiom Pro port names are listed
numerically (i.e., “Port 1”, “Port 2”, etc.) rather than by name (“USB A In”,
“HyperControl In”, etc.) The following table indicates how the numbers
map to Axiom Pro ports within your software

Standalone Mode
When using Axiom Pro in standalone mode (i.e., without a computer), you must connect
an optional 9V DC, 500mA power supply to the power socket on the back of the
keyboard. This power supply can be purchased from the M-Audio webstore
(http://store.m-audio.com).
Next, connect the MIDI Output port of Axiom Pro to your external device’s MIDI Input
port. The “Connection Diagram” section of the Axiom Pro User Guide (located on the
Axiom Pro CD-ROM) covers this subject in detail.
