By Damien Margo on October 7, 2006
After 15 years using a Roland U-20 as a midi controller I began to wonder if upgrading would ever be needed. I figured all I needed was something that could trigger midi notes, and my old keyboard did that just fine. Then one day recently I saw a live band using a little 25 note controller to trigger Combinator patches out of Reason, connected only by a USB cable. The little dials on the keyboard were being used musically to change various parameters of the sound. It then occurred to me that maybe I should take a hard look at what has happened in the last 15 years with Midi controllers.

Escaping from my local retailer with M-Audio Oxygen 8 v2 in hand, I rushed home to see if these bells and whistles really mattered. Skipping the dated CD-ROM that came in the package, I downloaded the current M-Audio drivers using the World Wide Web. Driver installation was painless, and then I connected the hardware. After windows carefully chewed on three different hardware wizards it was all done. Not bad, although I have some sympathy for anyone who is not familiar with the Windows "Found New Hardware" wizard. Fortunately the documentation describes the procedure in detail. The creative session that unfolded over the next few hours is what prompted me to write this review. Long ago it was very difficult to pass "special" information over Midi. Users were forced to map out keyboards, sift through menus, and spend hours on configuration. Those days are over! With this current technology, mapping a function to a dial or button is a simple matter. Software like Cubase and Reason just ask for you to touch the dial you want to use. After you give the dial a little twist the software detects it and maps it to the function of your choice. I could not be more pleased with how well this works.

I'm a digital music noob and have been putting together a modest setup on my Dell laptop running Windows Vista. I'll tell ya it hasn't been easy. Drivers that don't work, programs that won't register and are incompatible with each other, sound cards that are also inadequate, audio interfaces that have bad drivers and won't work with anything else, oh my, it's been some hard lessons learned and there are lots of regrets along the way. But my one component that has been hassle free and has worked to my expectations right out of the box is my M-Audio keyboard.

Besides being easy to set up and use, I've been impressed with the quality. It really is a heavy-duty instrument. The whole thing just as a very sturdy, substantial feel to it. The key-action is decent. It does register how hard you press the keys pretty well. The one thing I don't like is that I have a fairly "light touch" and it fails to register some of my keystrokes. It really wants you to pound the keyboard apparently. I've gotten used to it, and it's fine for putting together little tunes at home, but it's no piano replacement, that's for sure.

Works great with Reason 3.5 on Intel Mac. One key shows signs of problems...make sure you get one with even keys. Mine may be a fluke, but I saw similar reviews with this problem elsewhere. Otherwise, a great deal.

I can recommend this controller for those that need a small keyboard due to space restraints. It's limited by it's two octave range, but for most horn or string parts it's more than adequate. I needed a keyobard with a modwheel to help enter parts into Sonar with the Garritan Personal Orchestra plugin, and so far this keyboard is perfect.

Another bonus: incredibly easy to setup. Put the CD in the drive, load the drivers, plug it into a USB port, fire up your software. It worked perfectly the first time.

I just purchased this controller used at my local Music-Go-Round a few days ago - and I LOVE IT! Well, I'm beginning to love it after cleaning it up and getting some of the dust out of it. Someone really let a treasure of a MIDI controller go when they pawned it off.

As I stated in the title of this review - it works great in Linux. I use Ubuntu 12.04 Dream Studio.

It's compatible with Ardour 3, in fact - it's the default Generic MIDI controller for it. Although, MIDI and Ardour still don't mesh too well together. It's a perfect match for LMMS (Linux MultiMedia Studio), and offers the sort of MIDI control I WISH Ardour 3 could muster up. It's also a great little controller for Phasex and AMSynth. Basically, JACKd will recognize it out of the box without any drivers or other Windows nonsense. In my MIDI set up, Jack puts it in my ALSA tab and allows me to connect it with anything I've tried it with so-far.

As a comparison - I also own a Behringer UMX-250 - a similar type of 25-key controller. The Oxygen8 won't replace it for certain things, mainly because I like the layout of the Behringer better - the knobs are laid out more intuitively, with more room with the UMX-250. The knob layout on the Oxygen feels cramped. The Behringer also has the more logical layout for the pitch and mod wheels - plus they're bigger, and with my big, clunky hands, the Behringer's design and layout win out for me in the usefulness category. Then again, I've also owned the UMX-250 for a while, and I've become very accustomed to it.

BUT...

I also have a VERY cramped-up workspace, and the Oxygen8's smaller footprint can make it more practical for me when working with my DAW's. I also like the red digit MIDI message LED, which the Behringer lacks.
