Authentic piano feel, instant controller mapping to common DAW functions, streamlined session control, and more.

The M-Audio Oxygen 88 USB MIDI controller delivers a highly expressive playing experience that's designed to satisfy players who need the feel of a piano combined with the power of a modern MIDI controller. The 88-note, graded hammer-action keybed offers an impressive feel and response—while 32 assignable buttons, knobs, and faders provide complete control over your music software. DirectLink mode automatically maps these onboard controls to common DAW functions including transport, mixer, track pan, and plug-in parameters. Built-in presets offer support for popular virtual instruments right out of the box—no complicated setup required. Featuring an unparalleled combination of great feel, total control, and ease of use, Oxygen 88 is the perfect choice for both studio and stage.

M-Audio carefully designed the Oxygen 88 keyboard to emulate the feel and response of an acoustic piano. Graded hammer action means that the keys are slightly heavier in the bass and lighter in the treble areas—just like the real thing. We've also incorporated 4 highly musical velocity curves, so you can choose the one that best suits your playing style. In addition, Oxygen 88 includes 3 pedal inputs so you can incorporate 2 sustain pedals and one expression pedal for total piano-style control over your performance.

Streamlined Session Compatibility
Featuring 32 assignable knobs, faders, buttons, and transport controls, Oxygen 88 gives you total control over your session. Dedicated Track up/down buttons let you navigate from track to track at the touch of a button—allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music rather than going back and forth between QWERTY keyboard and MIDI controller. DirectLink mode automatically maps Oxygen 88 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 deep tactile control over multitimbral hardware and software instruments. Interfacing a MIDI controller with your software doesn't get any easier than this.

Pro Tools Compatible
The Oxygen 88 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with Pro Tools software—the industry-standard DAW found in professional, project, and personal studios around the world. With DirectLink, the Oxygen 88 controls instantly map to key parameters in the Pro Tools Mixer, Edit, and Transport windows—as well as the powerful suite of virtual instruments bundled with Pro Tools. Together, Oxygen 88 and Pro Tools software provide a streamlined workflow in a formidable system with tons of interface options and industry-standard file compatibility.

Total Control
Beyond the knobs, faders, and buttons, Oxygen 88 delivers a host of other controls to help unleash your creativity. Assignable pitch bend and mod wheels add feeling and expression to your performance. 4 customizable zones with dedicated buttons enable you to layer sounds, split the keyboard, and create huge, stacked patches. T3 unique select buttons make it easy to step through presets, program changes, and MIDI channels on the fly. Dedicated track up/down buttons let you quickly navigate tracks in your DAW, while 2 dedicated snapshot buttons instantly send parameters to your software. Dedicated transpose/octave buttons complete the package.

Professional Quality
M-Audio pioneered the mobile MIDI keyboard controller category, and continues to be one of the best-selling names in the game. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, you'll find that the Oxygen 88 controller has a solid, reliable build—and puts as much musicality into the keyboard as it does into the complement of other MIDI controls. And, since it's lightweight for its size, it's a perfect way to go from studio to stage and beyond.

Oxygen 88 Midi Controller - USB Driven, Easy to Use & Won't Break the Bank!

By Debbie Frost

from Houston

Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 88 MIDI Controller:

M-Audio makes some really great products. The only thing I can think of at this time, is that I would like to see M-Audio build a "performance" level midi controller, that has some built in instruments/voices that you could use with your DAW? (hint...hint ) I know of another brand that currently makes one, but it's a little too pricey for my pocket.

If you want a really decent full 88 key midi controller (that won't break the bank), and that is user friendly and (USB driven), then go with the Oxygen 88!
I recently purchased the Oxygen 88 Midi Controller, so my opinion is based on first impressions.

As a studio Composer and Lyricist, I needed a keyboard that I could connect to my system and be up and running quickly, without issues like; which driver do I need, how to I get the thing to talk to my computer and DAW! No one wants to spend a day just trying to figure out how, where and what it will take to get a keyboard to work properly.

The Oxygen 88 is USB driven, so it's truly plug n play! It's that simple!

As for all the knobs and faders etc, that are physically on the keyboard itself...well, as I stated earlier, I just purchased the Oxygen 88, so that will take some time. For now, it works, that's all I care about.

I do like the fact that the Oxygen 88 has (3) ports on the back for; (2) sustain/volume ports and an expression port. You have to have an expression port, if you want to get the most out of electric guitar/bass software plugins, using an expression pedal.
The Oxygen 88 keys are weighted hammer action keys, just like a baby grand piano! I've played some other brands of 88 key midi controllers, where the so called hammer action was pitched as being "soft and responsive". Not so, several of those keyboards responsiveness were so loud, you might as well have been using a jack hammer!

The truth is that there really is no such thing as any 88 key keyboard, having "silent" play ability. You're going to hear the keys being pushed down on the keybed.

But, the M-Audio Oxygen 88's push to keybed response is quiet nice and not so noticable. When I'm playing one of my plugin instruments or voices, inside my DAW, I mostly hear the sounds on my studio monitors and not my pounding on the midi keyboard.
I've given a "9" rating based solely on the fact that I've only owned the Oxygen 88 for a short time, so there's no long history to dive further into specifics. But, so far, I'm happy with my purchase! And that's really the bottom line anyway.

Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 88 MIDI Controller:

If you are looking for a good MIDI controller with great piano key actions, I would recommend this. The keyboard is quite heavy, but I like it since it is heavy. It feels sturdy and don't move easily with heavy playing. The weighted keys are not too heavy which makes more realistic piano playing experience.
Instant connection with Pro Tools 10 is a plus. All the knobs and sliders feel well built.

      Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 88 MIDI Controller:

      The action on the Oxygen 88 feels better than that on the real Steinway B sitting right next to it Oxy 88 seamlessly integrates into Pro Tools HD.

      But more than that, Musician' s Friend sold me a used one, that came in perfect condition; at an incredible savings.
