Expressive performance and hands-on feel of virtual instrument/DAW controls plus companion software that makes creating music even easier.

The Oxygen 49 MK3 Ignite MIDI keyboard controller delivers next-generation functionality from M-Audio, with it's smart design and pariing with Avid's extraordinarily innovative Ignite software. 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.

Ignite
Speaking of software, Ignite is a unique music creation software built from the ground up for one purpose: to energize your creative process. It’s not another DAW with complicated controls and menu after menu of features to learn. In fact, it’s not a DAW. Ignite works along side whatever music software you’re already using, unlocking your creative energy with a musician-centric workflow, so you can capture your musical ideas, develop songs, and collaborate with other musicians. It’s a simple and seamless creative partner that empowers your ideas and brings them to life.

        I have been wanting to get a keyboard for years and finally got this for my birthday. I write songs and there are many songs that need a keyboard and this one fits the bill.

        Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 MK3 Ignite:

        I got a hold of this midi controller after upgrading from the M-Audio KeyRig49 and I can say that it is a huge upgrade. You get a much better build quality along with the convenience of transport control, faders, and rotary knobs that can be automatically mapped to your DAW with the built in DirectLink technology. It works wonders with Reason. I suggest this to any producer on a budget looking to upgrade to a midi controller that provides for a better work flow.
