When I ordered this, I wasn't sure if it would be the right controller. I already have an axiom 61 and am very pleased with that. Now wanting also something smaller (25 keys) and inexpensive (and more mobile) I thought I'd stick with m-audio.

Size was very important to me. It's always hard to tell on pictures how big something actually is.. But it's smaller and more compact than I thought. The build quality is also very very good.. just like the axiom 61. I even prefer the knobs on the oxygen 25 because they turn smoothly (like on a dj mixer) and not like on the axiom where they click.

I was thinking about getting the akai pro lpk25 because that seems to be really good for mobile use. Already tried out the korg nanokey which is in my opinion a joke. Akai pro doesn't have full size keys either so I went for the oxygen 25. Of course the oxygen can't compete with the akai/korg size-wise but it's still really compact. It'll fit in a normal sized backpack, no problem.

So overall it's a great midi controller. For at home or on the go. I assume it would be pretty awesome for live use/djing as well.
One thing extra I would have liked would be one or two more faders... But you can't have everything : )

Edit 15.3.11:

I've used this at a couple of live shows, djing using ableton. It works great! Of course more knobs and faders would be preferable (and of course you can't compare it with 2cdjs/mixer) but if you're on the go and need a small but effective keyboard this is it. Plug it in, map it with ableton and you're ready to go.
Then again I use it mainly for producing. And for that purpose it's more than perfect. For at home it's not too small and for on the go it's not too big. Highly recommend!

It's tough to find a small, portable MIDI keyboard. I tried a couple of the few that are available.
The Korg Nano was too fragile and made a clacking noise.
The Akai LPK25 was nice and small but difficult to manipulate. Plus there was some sort of bug in the firmware that made certain key combinations cancel notes out. (Strange...)
So, I decided to give M-Audio a try. (I own the trigger finger and it's pretty sturdy.)
The Oxygen 25 is much bigger than it appears in the product image panel but it still fits into a large back pack.
The keys are FULL SIZE and feel pretty good.
Getting it to work with Cakewalk Sonar X1 was a bit of a chore. There is no ACT preset for the Oxygen 25. I knew this before I bought the unit. It's primary built for PRO TOOLS. But Cakewalk has pretty decent customization control surface software so I took a gamble based on the low price.
In cakewalk I chose the CAKEWALK GENERIC SURFACE template and chose OXYGEN 25 for the MIDI IN's and OUT's.
From there I was able to get Cakewalk to "learn" the control buttons for PLAY, RW, FF, RECORD and STOP.
The line up of 8 knobs on the top and remaining control buttons turned out to be really difficult to program. I gave up.
So, in real world use, the board works great as MIDI controller, a really basic transport (You can start and stop record or play), the mod and pitch wheels work fine and the keys feel really good.
I'll have to experiment a little more with it but it appears that the 1-127 sensitivity is a little choppy. I didn't detect a lot of levels using most synth modules. Soft Medium and hard is all I can detect. 'Not a micro level.
There are no Standard MIDI in and out ports. JUST USB.

I just starting using this controller yesterday....so I will give you my opnion based on what I know so far. First, It's a nice little controller...I'm using it with Mixcraft 6 ( Which is awesome) and it so easy right out of the box. I mapped all the controlls and sliders the way I wanted to. I have little experience with MIDI contollers but this one seems to do the job just fine! If your a beginner like me then go ahead and buy this thing if you can't afford an exspensive keyboard like me.

Update : I've been using this controller for awhile....still love it. The Avid software is available ...all you have to do is go to MAudios website and find your keyboard ( in this case oxygen 25) and you will see in fine print to download avid and ableton light live 8 I believe. Anyhow, this MIDI device is awesome and well worth the money.

The oxygen is a good "starter" controller, but if you're really in need of a 25 key midi controller there are much better (albiet slightly more expensive) options available. The biggest problem I have with this unit is the lack of true Midi ports. It uses USB midi, which is OK for users who are going soft synth only but is really not useable for individuals who need to interface with midi devices other than a lap top. The build quality is fine, it's not particularly solid but the knobs, wheels, and keys are responsive enough for a device in this price range. If this is all you can afford then it will get the job done. But if you have an extra 100 dollars, I would recommend looking at M-Audio's AXIOM 25.
