The Oxygen Series keyboard controller gets a refreshing update.
M-Audio pioneered the portable MIDI controller market with the Oxygen series of keyboard controllers. Today, M-Audio continues to be a leader of this technology by developing intuitive controllers for software-based music production and performance. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, the new Oxygen series controllers offer more control, deep hardware/software integration, and come equipped with a reliable build that enables you to make music on the go or implement these controllers into any studio.
With an array of assignable knobs, pads, and faders, Oxygen 61 gives you total control over your software, allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music without ever reaching for the mouse. It features 61 velocity-sensitive keys for playing chords, bass lines, and melodies; eight assignable knobs for tweaking effect plugins and virtual instruments; eight velocity-sensitive pads for triggering samples or finger drumming; and nine assignable faders for mixing tracks together and controlling the master output. Oxygen 61 also has dedicated transport controls and track-up and -down buttons that allow you to initiate play, stop, and record in the DAW environment right from your keyboard controller.
Use Your Favorite DAW
The Oxygen 61 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with popular DAWs including Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and many more. Oxygen 61's controls instantly map to key parameters in your favorite DAW, enabling you to immediately tweak the mixers, editors, and transport windows. Additionally, Oxygen 61 has built-in customizable mapping presets that quickly interface Oxygen 61 with your favorite effect plugins and virtual instruments. The factory presets map Oxygen 61 to the bundled software, SONiVOX Twist, so you can plug in and start making music right out of the box. Setting up a MIDI controller with your software doesn't get any easier than this.
Ableton Live Lite
Ableton Live Lite is included with Oxygen 61 for immediate music creation. One of the most popular performance and production programs available in the world, Ableton Live Lite is a powerful music creation tool that enables musicians and producers to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment. Host plugins and use Oxygen 61 to produce, compose, or perform all within Ableton Live Lite. When you are satisfied with your work, Ableton Live lets you save it or mix it down.
SONiVOX Twist is a spectral morphing synthesis virtual instrument. Comprised of a dynamic interface, an advanced pattern generator, and onboard effects, Twist lets you create serious sounds using simple controls. Two swirling sound layers provide unique harmonic controls and form the basis of every patch. Sculpt your sound with a multi-mode filter, independent amp and filter envelope generators, and a LFO that can be sync'd to tempo.

Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 61 MKIV:
I had the model M-Audio made right before this new design. I thought with the new features, built in pads etc, this would be an upgrade. WRONG! First thing I noticed was the light cheap feel of everything. The keys, forget it. So light that I wouldn't recommend it to a kid to be used as a toy. Whoever designed this and sat in a R&D room and said "We've done it"! Needs to get new jobs. This is by far the worst feeling, worst piece of garbage I have ever owned. Sent it back immediately and went with the Novation Controller. Just like the prior M-audio board only nicer. Unless you are entirely about budget and budget alone, stay away from this product. If you enjoy watching plastic melt, buy one and throw it in a fire. That's about all it's good for!
