This is really quite a decent controller. Velocity-sensitivity, sliders/knobs and transport controls, pitch-bend and mod wheel and good feeling keys with a 1/4" jack for sustain pedal. Definitely good feature set right off the bat. However, there are a couple things I'm not fond of.

1. No MIDI output jack - this device can only be used as a usb connection to the computer, you cannot use this with midi-based hardware (hardware synths, rackmount soundbanks, etc.) The usb driver is also a little finicky, requiring reinstallation on my windows system everytime I change the usb port it is plugged into (annoying).

2. Touch response is lacking - velocity sensitivity was actually much more refined on an old Yamaha PSR-220 that I owned. It's not totally wonky or unusable but there is definitely better to be had out there, even with adjustments via FL Studio response curve control for velocity input, it never responds very well to the lowest velocities.

3. Certain features are finicky - transport controls require MMC (MIDI machine control) to be sent to the host in the case it isn't setup to function right off the bat (integrates awesomely with Pro Tools supposedly, gee no surprise there I guess). Also, the pitch bend controller never works correctly on my setup.

4. Sustain pedal weirdness - depressing the sustain pedal doesn't by default send CC #64 message - it actually just tells the host to "hold" the note itself, which is obnoxious when trying to edit note data (screws up retriggering and you have to manually set the pedal to respond to CC64 for each individual instrument if there is a special function affected by the sustain pedal being held down).

It's usable however. Gets the job done.

I paid $160 for this keyboard about a month or so ago. I'm not a keyboard player but I was looking for an easier way to lay down realistic sounding drum tracks. I run a PC based studio in my house using an HP Envy Laptop with Sony Acid Pro 7 as my DAW. I am able to control all the transport functions (i.e. stop, play, rec, etc.) via the keyboar as well as control the volume levels and panning for the first 8 tracks. I can configure the keyboard to do more but I haven't messed with these extra functions much beyond this. The keys are a little stiff but work well for what I primarily use it for. I'm not a piano player so I'm not sure how the keys would feel to someone who plays that is looking for a MIDI controller to use for this function. As I said, I use the keyboard to lay down drum tracks using Toontracks Drumkit From Hell and it works flawlessly. I am able to lay down complex drum tracks from 60 beats per minute to 300+ beats per minute almost effortlessly.

I recommend this keyboard to anyone that wants to add quality MIDI functionality to their setup for a small price.

It's really unfortunate the other reviews aren't more universal and fair when it comes to this MIDI Controller.

I bought it a few weeks ago, and it does EXACTLY what I expected it to (and more) ~ The materials it's made out of are perfect. On my computer it functions perfectly (my computer recognized it no problem using Vista) ~

Regardless, this keyboard fits perfectly on my desk, is solid, feels just like all my regular keyboards as far as quality goes... and well... gosh... I don't have a single complaint.

If you don't look at the system requirements before buying this keyboard --- please don't leave a negative review on it just because you failed to do your part.

It's time to upgrade your computer from Windows 3.1 folks --- and stop slamming technology around like a big angry monkey :) ~

Pardon my humor, I just love this MIDI Controller & feel sorry for the company that made it as they have to suffer unfair reviews like the ones I've seen.

"MY CAR DOESN'T WORK!!! YOUR DEALERSHIP IS HORRIBLE!!!!" --- "Did you fill it with gas sir?" --- "FILL IT WITH WHAT!?!?!" --- "Gas..." --- "STOP TALKING DOWN TO ME!!! YOU'RE ALL HORRIBLE!!!!" [stomps out of the room and walks down the street with his clothes inside out wearing his glasses upside down]

Yes, those are the kinds of people that are leaving reviews on this product :D!!!

Just to answer a quick concern I had --- YES! It does work with FL Studio 9.

The M-Audio Oxygen 61 is an amazing USB/midi controller for the price. I was originally using a Roland A-800Pro 61 key controller until a recent "slightly too energetic" live performance caused me to crack the casing and subsequently the circuit board inside, laying it to waste. So instead of dropping 500 bucks to get another Roland I decided to give M-Audio a try as I've heard good things about their boards from other musicians and 170 dollars sounded more fitting for a touring controller. Needless to say I was not disappointed when I plugged the Oxygen 61 in. It integrated seamlessly with Windows 7 and all of my DAWs, audio editors and VST plug-ins. M-Audio provides a driver disc with the board but I didn't even have to take it out of the plastic, this baby is THE definition of plug and play. The keys and action were just as responsive as the Roland and my Korg M3 synth, as you can't expect as much weighted hammer-action from plastic keys as opposed to a real piano. One thing I really love about it is that the pitch and modulation wheels are located above the keys instead of to the left of the board, which is nice when you are bending lower notes that you're playing with your left hand. The only real adjustment that I had to make was slightly upping the velocity curve to get a bit more volume out of it. Aside from that the only thing that it lacks compared to the Roland are the pads for drum/sample triggering, which isn't much of an issue as I plan on getting a Korg padKontrol unit to do live drum loops, if you're heavy handed when making beats having the pads on the keyboard/controller really isn't such a great idea if playing space isn't an issue.
Overall the M-Audio Oxygen 61 controller is an excellent choice for the musician or producer on a budget.
