OVERVIEW

A 49-key USB MIDI controller that's useful for common DAW tasks, creating the sounds of popular instruments, producing, and performing live.

The Oxygen 49 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller delivers next-generation functionality from M-Audio, an innovator in mobile music production technology. The Oxygen 49 features eight assignable knobs and nine assignable sliders, plus dedicated transport and track select buttons. DirectLink mode automatically maps these controls to common DAW functions including transport, mixer, track pan, and plug-in parameters. Built-in factory presets offer support for popular virtual instruments right out of the box so there's no complicated setup required. Velocity-sensitive keys and a sleek, compact design round out a portable 49-note keyboard that's perfect for both production and performance. No other MIDI controller in this price range has so much functionality while remaining easy to use.

Streamlined session control:
Featuring eight assignable knobs, nine assignable sliders, dedicated transport controls, and track up and down buttons, the M-Audio Oxygen 49 gives you total control over your session, allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music rather than being interrupted by the constant back and forth between a QWERTY keyboard and a MIDI controller. DirectLink mode automatically maps Oxygen 49 controls to common DAW parameters while factory presets provide instant mapping to popular virtual instruments including Xpand!2, Hybrid, Velvet, Strike, Oddity, ImpOSCar, and MiniMonsta. Use the dedicated select buttons to quickly switch MIDI channels and presets for tactile control over multitimbral hardware and software instruments. Interfacing a MIDI controller with your music software doesn't get any easier than this.

Professional quality:
M-Audio is a pioneer in the category of mobile MIDI keyboard controllers. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, you'll find that the Oxygen 49 keyboard controller has a solid, reliable build and puts as much musicality into the keyboard as it does into the complement of other MIDI controls.

Pro Tools compatible:
The M-Audio Oxygen 49 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with Pro Tools software, which is the industry-standard DAW found in professional, project, and personal studios around the world. With DirectLink, the Oxygen 49 controls instantly map to key parameters on the Pro Tools Mixer, Edit and Transport windows, as well as the powerful suite of virtual instruments bundled with Pro Tools. Together, Oxygen 49 and Pro Tools software provide streamlined workflow in a formidable system with tons of interface options and industry-standard file compatibility.

      Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 - USB MIDI Controller:

      (I have a 61 key one, not a 49 key. Just as a side note).I have used this for an entire year and it has been THE tool for my recording studio. Sure I have my audio interface and it's great, but I got Avid Recording studio too and so I got Pro Tools SE for free because it came with the Avid recording package. If you buy this, you NEED to get the Avid recording package. pro Tools SE is amazing and I produce music with great quality. It's simple to use and it goes great with the new MIDI keyboard. Bundle this MIDI keyboard and Avid recording studio together. WELL worth it!!!

      THE DOOR TO SUCCESSFUL RECORDINGS!

      By Jeremy Downer

      from Connecticut

      Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 - USB MIDI Controller:

      Everything is amazing! The only concern I have is that the USB cable is a little wobblely and I'm worried that at some point in the future it may not pick up a signal and I'll have to trash the device. But Im trusting m-audio's quality and hoping for the best.
      This device is incredible. I just started using it to record my songs and make them more interesting with drum beats. With this midi controller I can go way beyond drum beats! I can basically use it to create and record any sound that my garageband has to work with. I havent completely any new songs with it yet because I dont have the time to mix, but my friends tell me that what Ive done to my new songs so far make them really good. If you're a musician trying to make your recordings more appealing to the people around you in the attempt to gain more fans and supporters, this device is your ticket there.
      this deal is a steal!

      I like it!

      Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 - USB MIDI Controller:

      It isn't a piano or anything that you should consider gigging with. The faders are one of the best features. Everything else takes a whole lot of work to figure out.

      The sounds are INCREDIBLE for a midi keyboard. For example; I have FL 9, Cakewal Sonar and a myriad of other VST engines to select when I track midi instruments. Time and again, I find myself using some of the onboard samples and simply "fattening" them up with EQ or chours to get the true sound. The nylog guitar for example; one of my recordings has fooled several industry professionals...and I used the Oxygen sound bank. Crazy.

      There is more to learn about this keyboard then I have time for. It doesn't always midi "learn" in spite of the advertisement. You still need to assign several keys etc. if you want to control midi in a DAW. Some programs work fine, others take some serious effort to assign.

      Overall though, this keyboard is excellent for the home studio.

      I bought this to keep at my home studio and to just mess around with. The price may be just a tad high but, it's a great thing to have around

      Good but can cost less

      By Oxygen

      from California

      Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 - USB MIDI Controller:

      It's a very good midi controller and very nice quality but it could've cost less. The faders and knobs are good including the pitch bend and modulation.It works fine with a lot of programs and I actually like it how you can connect to some DAWs software. I just disliked the fact that it couldn't hook up to Fl Studio automatically so I had to manually set the MMC buttons and save the preset. It could've cost less because it's only a midi controller and it has no sound of it's own nor could you put sound in it.
