If you have ever wondered why softsynths were so slow to edit, or why cubase was messy to get around in, you don't own an Axiom. This is the fattest deal in keyboards - smooth controllers, elegent design, good fit with Cubase and Native Instruments products, and loads of tricks up it's sleeves. The action is perfect for synths, and I'm fine with it for piano too. If you already have years of real piano, this is not the keyboard for you. The action is very light, and non fatigueing, but you will put your fist through it trying to play like it was fully weighted. The trigger pads are great with taiko drum samples and other things that need to get hit hard. Get a stand, it's big, though not heavy, only around 22 pounds, but it's almost as large as my dear departed Roland XP30. The things you can make your software do with the Axiom are many and usefull. It way outperforms the Keystation range, and my Roland as a controller. And the big keys are much more fun than those two as well.
