Putting Axiom 49 main board into axiom 61 (first gen)

I had an axiom 49 first generation, and it worked resonably well until some keys broke, and I got a good deal on a 61 I've been using since. Unfortunately, it just stopped sending MIDI (I don't use it through usb as I've had problems with that.) So I pulled the mainboard from my 49 and put it in. It works great, except I can no longer play the top octave.

Does anybody know what is different about these two boards, and whether I can 'convert' my 49 board to a 61?

This is the main board with the midi and usb ports on it.

Otherwise, I guess I'm back to 49 keys :'/

  • Hi Eric,

    I need a D key for an Axiom 61 1st Gen. I'm taking a leap here in guessing you might have Axiom 61 parts depending on how you made out a year ago when you posted. Please let me know if you have a D key for the 1st Gen Axiom 61

    Thanks,

    Doug
