Question about M-Audio Axiom 49 49-Key Semi-Weighted USB MIDI Controller

1 Answer

My Axiom 49 won't turn on or light up. It was just working yesterday. How do I get it working again?

Yesterday I was composing with Reason, using my Axiom 49 which was plugged into my MacBookPro with a USB chord. Today it is all of a sudden totally unresponsive. It is a very underused piece of equipment. Not only is my Axiom 49 not recognized by my computer, the blue light won't even turn on. I never plugged it into anything else.

The cable could be bad. Try another cable. USB port problems are also common with M-Audio.

If that doesn't work, try using a 12v adapter to power it on.

Just make sure you don't use both USB and the power adapter at the same time, or you can fry the board.

If it powers on with the adapter then it's an USB issue. If it doesn't, then it's something else.

The AXIOM SHOULD turn on with just the wall wart adapter so you HAVE A PROBLEM.

First thing is to check the adapter that it is the correct one. It should be a 12 VDC 1 amp unit with positive center pin output.

Common adapters for pedals WILL NOT WORK.

Assuming you have the correct adapter, VERIFY the connector is plugged fully in the AXIOM.

How to fix loose USB on M-Audio Keyboard


Uscrew the case, desolder the USB socket from the circuit board. Buy a identical spare from any electronic shop using the broken one as sample. Solder in new USB socket.

USB sockets has only 4 connections - easy job.

How to fix loose usb on Axiom 49 keyboard


Wow...just loose or intermittent as well? Most of these jacks and connectors are directly soldered to the main circuit boards which could mean broken and/or intermittent connection. Check your warranty status but if expired...to resolder check for a local electronics repair shop to help as the disassembly and intricate work may be beyond many DIY fans.

Help behringer xenyx 1002fx !!


If you registered your mixer there will be a three year warranty so get it back to your local Behringer service depot. If not check the output from the PSU, if that's OK then I'm afraid it is very unlikey to be economical to repair. Sell it as spares and repairs on eBay.

LED Light not coming on


Did you get it used or brand new?

M-Audio is notorious for hardware related problems, mainly the USB ports. After awhile the ports wear and fail to hold the tight connection needed to keep the board fully functional. But I've seen the same problem with new boards too because of bad soldering.

If it's new then don't bother wasting time trying to figure it out. Just exchange it and save yourself the headaches. You may even want to look another board. If your partial to M-Audio then the Axiom is much better than the Oxygen. Either way, take advantage of the ability to exchange while you can, cause once that's over M-Audio will give you the finger.

Axiom 49 not detected by reason 5


Open preferences. Go to Control Surface tab.
Click Add. Select M-Audio as manufacturer.
Choose Axiom 49

Make sure the ports are set right.

Controls IN Port = Axiom 49 Hypercontrol In
Keyboard Port = Axiom 49 USB A In
Controls OUT Port = Axiom 49 Hypercontrol Out

if it hasn't detected yet then restart Reason.
Make sure the power on the Axiom is on.
If you still have issues the USB port on the Axiom could be bad.

I have a chauvet hurricane 1800 flex and it won't heat up. Red light comes on won't go to blue.


take off the front panel where the nozzle comes out... to do this, unscrew 2 screws on top, 2 on bottom and 4 on each side, then carefully remove the covering for the nozzle.. if your facing it, to the right of it, is a black little nipple button thats tripped.. press that in and it should click... if it does, run the fog machine with the panel off to make sure you fixed it... if it works, put it back on, if not, try again, and if still not go to chauvetlighting.com and contact them... i had this same problem for a couple months... they called me yesterday and told me to do this.. but make sure it has a full tank of fluid.. i didnt have a whole lot in and i think i messed it up more....);

My axiom 61 dont want to work anymore but it comes on says something about my usb connection


Where do you see the error about USB, on the Axiom display or on your computer? Can you give me the exact error? Is the Axiom connected directly into the computer or into a USB hub? (My Axiom 49 only works connected directly) Try restarting both the computer AND the Axiom with ONLY the Axiom plugged in.

Keys not responding on my keyboard.


It needs to be plugged in to a computer with a DAW to produce sound. The DAW converts the information sent by the controller about which key is pressed and how hard and converts it into sound with a virtual instrument
