I did not actually get to use the controller, because of the warning sticker on the user manual about the unit containing chemicals including lead and that it is known to cause cancer, birth defects and reproductive problems.. The last sentence stated: "Wash hands after handling merchandise." It's a keyboard I would be using it for hours on end. I really hope this is not a common thing with M-Audio. Bummed because it was the only controller / audio with Vista x64 drivers I could find...
I haxe used the OZONE for years and it has never let me down. You can use midi and audio at the same time with no prob's. Phantom power for the mic is the s*** and although its not the exact thing for travel it is perfect for portability when you need a partime set-up. Perfect for project studio work.
This is a good interface and i just use the microtrack to record in the field with the axiom 25 and use this for recording at home. Great recorded sound. this is a good buy.
I was very excited upon hearing of the release of the Ozone initially. A longtime Oxygen8 owner, I was using the Mobile Pre separately for remote recording projects and welcomed the chance to have ONE unit do it all. And it does, but it requires external power for the preamps, whereas the original oxygen8 and the MobilePre both can be run on USB power. I think M-Audio missed the boat on this one. The power supply is HUGE and HEAVY and is a HUGE pain to carry around and plug in... NOTE: When I contacted M Audio about the need for a portable kb/preamp with USB power instead of a separate power supply, I was treated very rudely and they were not at all interested in my comments...I returned mine and will wait to see what other manufacturers can come up with.
I bought this product to use with my laptop when I am traveling. It is not powered by the USB port and so without a wall socket it is useless (e.g. airplane, train, on site sampling). My mistake. although the oxygen is powered from the USB port, its big brother is not, nor is it advertised to do so. I just assumed. But what is M-Audio thinking? What good is a 25 note keyboard and a laptop if you can't play and travel?
First off -- you're never going to escape running this thing off of pure USB! A normal MIDI controller requires very little power to operate, but combining that with a full-blown audio card that supports phaton power?? Let's be serious... Anyways, it's nice, but more assignable buttons/knobs would be cool. I'm a fan of having lots to assign. The more the better, but I suppose you can't fit so many on a unit of this size. Anyways, by mobile, I don't know about using it on a trian or plane, BUT I do know full well I can't take my studio with me to China for the summer, and this will be the perfect substitute...
Wickedly convienient, portable. With a good laptop and the right software, this is unstoppable.
I needed a MIDI controller to help me work with Apple's GarageBand, and I opted for the Ozone since it had the added benefit of an audio interface. I have used it fine as both in GarageBand and Ableton Live. The phantom power worked fine with my church's condenser microphone. There were a few disappointments: You cannot use audio and MIDI at the same time, MIDI is restricted to output only (no MIDI input), and the Ozone (unlike the Oxygen8) _must be plugged in_, making the unit less portable than it could be. Other than that, it's a good all-in-one solution for a hobbyist.
I got one of these for Christmas. I use it with Apple GarageBand and ProTools in a fixed studio setup. The only complaint I have about it is that I don't really understand what all the extra knobs can be assigned to do. I'd much rather have an eq for the preamp instead of those. I'm only posting this review because an earlier reviewer said that you cannot use the audio and the MIDI at the same time which isn't true. I have used the keyboard while my friend played guitar several times and it plays and records perfectly with no latency.
