M-Audio are one of the biggest names in the industry, offering a vast selection of studio & live equipment that covers every price point!
M-Audio have become something of a household name in the world of musical equipment, with a product range that spans a number of categories including audio interfaces, MIDI controllers, monitors and much more!
The History of M-Audio
M-Audio was founded in 1988 under the name Midiman – this is fairly indicative of their focus at the time! MIDI was relatively new technology, and the industry saw brands racing each other to keep up with the new trend.
The company’s ethos was to bridge the gap between hardware and software as the world of digital music production grew in size. Combining computers and shiny new software with traditional audio production techniques was a challenge that was irresistible for the Midiman team!
Fast-forward to the year 2000, and they unveiled the M-Audio moniker for their latest range. This was the start of the company’s journey to widespread popularity and mainstream production; their MIDI and audio interfaces went from strength to strength. In 2002, they released the Oxygen keyboard series, which paved the way for compact and affordable MIDI controllers.
Being at the forefront of the digital music revolution meant that M-Audio were able to cement themselves as leaders in the industry; nowadays they offer one of the biggest product lines on the market.
The M-Audio Range
The M-Audio MIDI controller range is bigger and more colourful than ever before! Their selection covers every price point, starting at just £49! Whether you’re looking for a compact 25-key solution, an all-encompassing, hammer-action 88-key studio keyboard, or anything in between, M-Audio’s range is fully kitted out for every need, with iconic controller series' including the Keystation and Oxygen series. Many of their controllers offer deep integration with your DAW of choice, with all key parameters auto-mapped for immediate out-the-box creative potential.
As well as controllers, M-Audio are known for their interface range; the original M-Track line paved the way for ultra-affordable recording, allowing users on a budget to realise their creative ideas! Today, M-Audio's flagship interface line is the AIR Series, fusing a fuss-free design, super clean crystal clear preamps, zero latency monitoring, and a pro-grade software suite letting you dive in and create from the get-go!
They’re also hugely popular for their studio monitors, known for combining balanced sound with budget-friendly price tags. They start for as little as £74 for a pair, and are perfect for bedroom recordings or studio environments alike. Their monitors offer a number of connectivity options, along with plenty of tonal headroom for producers with a keen ear.
Finally, M-Audio have branched out into the microphone category, offering a selection of simple mic configurations including a USB-connectible mic with Pro Tools compatibility!
