The constant two-way link with your host DAW means the keyboard’s controls are always in sync with your software’s active parameters. The intuitive graphic LCD constantly updates the current values, which ensures seamless editing and prevents parameter jumps—even when plug-ins are closed. Toggle instantly between Mixer and Instrument control modes. Map buttons to send QWERTY key commands right from the Axiom Pro 49.

03.11_M-Audio-monitors-BX5aStudiophile BX5a – 70 Watt Bi-Amplified Studio Reference Monitors

We also use M-Audio monitors at Dubspot, they’re great on size with power.

The BX5a refines our highly acclaimed BX5 near-field reference monitors, renowned for packing a lot of punch for their size. Our new 5” low-frequency driver cones are crafted from Kevlar, an extremely resilient material typically found in much more expensive monitors. Curved cone design coupled with high-temperature voice coils and damped rubber surrounds deliver incredible fidelity and durability. The 1” high-frequency drivers’ magnetically shielded natural silk domes produce crisp top end while still being gentle on the ears. Integral cabinet and electronic engineering work together to deliver improved bass response. 70-watt bi-amped power and expertly tuned crossovers round out an incredible sounding pair of reference monitors with a footprint small enough to fit just about anywhere.  >> Detailed Specs
