Mididiot needs help

I'm just a guitar player and singer.I have no experience with midi whatsoever and I just recently bought an M-audio Axiom controller.I have too many questions but I'll just ask the ones that will get me started.First off I'm working on a Mac with tracktion.What I want to do is have access to some older synths,for ex. korg m1.Is there software out there for this application, where I would plug my controller in and whalaa,a korg M1.Or do I have to assign eveything manually?.Also any suggestions for software preferences would be appreciated.What soft synth offers a wide spectrum of sounds at a reasonable price.I'm friggin lost man.

A mate of mine has this


It sounds great.

I think it has a stand alone feature so you can basically get crackin straight away.

It'll be a different story running it through traktion, I've not used it so i'm no help there but it won't difficult.

or better yet from zZounds www.zzounds.com/a--884907/item--KORKLCDE

If you Axiom has typical DIN MIDI cables they should be able to control anything else on that MIDI chain with proper channel selections and such.

And don't forget you need to go into your options/preferances or what ever they are called in Traktion and assign the USB midi port from the Axiom as your midi i/o so you can control the synths. Also when you assign a synth track make sure the midi track is set for the Axiom as its input.
