Frequently Asked Questions.
Q: Does the AXiS need a sound module?
A: AXiS keyboards, although not piano-style, are MIDI keyboards, not synthesizers and do not have sounds on board.
Use the AXiS-64 in conjunction with your MIDI sound expander, computer, DAW, sampler, synthesizer or any such device.
The AXiS-49 is designed to be plugged into a computer.
Q: Is the AXiS microtonal?
A: The AXiS-64 can be used for microtonal work, although it wasn't specifically designed for that purpose. Like many controllers, it outputs the 128 standard MIDI notes. The AXiS-49 can now be started in "Selfless" mode which gives you 98 seperate MIDI notes than can be mapped however you like on your computer.
Q: Does the AXiS send MIDI through its USB port?
A: The AXiS-49 sends MIDI via its USB port. However the USB port on the AXiS-64 cannot be used for sending MIDI. It is used for updating the firmware.
Q: Can the AXiS-49 send MIDI without a computer
Not normally, but you can now buy devices to do just that. There are details of a MIDI-USB host on our accessories page.
Q: Is there a distributor in my country?
Q: What is the HS code for import duty?
