Streamlined Session Control

Streamlined session controlFeaturing eight assignable knobs, nine assignable sliders, dedicated transport controls and track up/down buttons, Oxygen 49 gives you total control over your session—allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music rather than being interrupted by the constant back and forth between QWERTY keyboard and MIDI controller. DirectLink mode automatically maps Oxygen 49 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.

A video review of the m-audio oxygen 49 (silver) midi control keyboard... Just another spectacular product from m-audio. looking forward to purchasing more items from them.

UPDATE: it has now been a few years since i purchased this item and did the video review. It was my first time on camera and I was obviously very nervous. I might do an updated video review. As for the keyboard, it has been very useful in my music and it is still working flawlessly. I have discovered all the features it has such as the midi control and interface functions you can add this to your existing midi patch network and interface it with other midi protocol devices. the only down side I can think of is the fact that it does not have weighted keys. I'm also going to purchase an M-Audio Axiom 49 for the drum pads and weighted keys, at a higher cost. I will be using both however in my set-up. Thanks for the positive votes. I'm sorry to those of you who did not find my review helpful. I only covered the basics.

I am a audio production major, and on my first day at the art institute of California, they had the oxygen8's in class and I in was in love. The oxygen8 never gives me any issues with pro tools or logic, and for that matter max MSP. The oxygen49 worked flawlessly with the driver (from the disk)
In reason 4. I love the feeling of this keyboard, the knobs and faders are nicely weighted, the only negeitive I have to say is the keys arent fully weighted, but for this price, I won't complain:) and in all honesty semi weight is better then nothing. This keyboard is everything you see in the picture.

I am not a professional musician, but I know what I am doing when it comes to keyboards. This is a great MIDI controller and works perfectly with Ableton (both the included Lite version and full-on Live version). Knobs and sliders have a solid feel to them. Keys are quick and responsive. This is a meat and potatoes keyboard for those who know what they need and for the money, it can't be beat! Caveat: if you are a pianist, you may want a more expensive hammer-action keyboard or else you'll find this keyboard way too fast.

I just got Garage Band on the Mac, and decided to pick up keyboard again after a lapse of many years. Just plugged it in and it worked. More functionality than I need--maybe more than I will ever need--but not expensive.

I have had this keyboard for about a month and find its a really nice keyboard.

I would recommend getting the M-Audio SP-2 US65010 Sustain Pedal Piano Style Sustain Pedal for Keyboards to go with it. It should be the only other hardware device you need as there are only 2 ports (USB and sustain pedal).

As one reviewer said, there is no DAW with it, but I didn't expect there to be one as its not mentioned in the description. So if you don't have garage band, or another DAW, you may have to buy that, or look for a free one on the net.

No drivers was required to work with Garage Band, and direct link works well with Garage band, after installing a package from M-Audio's website.

As someone just starting out with a keyboard, I can't compare it with a real piano, or even with another keyboard. But it does seem well made, and looks great. I have enjoyed learning on it.

The Oxygen-49 is a 49-key synth-action MIDI controller with 9 sliders, 8 knobs, a transport control section and 9 generic buttons. You'll never be fooled into thinking it's a real piano keyboard, but that's not what it is for. (A StudioLogic 990XP feels much more like a hammer-action weighted piano keyboard.)

Of all the buttons, the ones I use most are the transport controls. They took me a while to find the correct setup procedure (buttons in Sonar are rather obscure to program).

drawbacks: The 3-digit LED display is a puzzzle to decode sometimes. (A backlit LCD would probably require too much current.) Programming can be awkward because of the lack of dedicated programming utttons, though at least the keys are labeled.The sliders seem a bit fragile, and it is very difficult to enter precise values with them; you can usually get within or 2 of the number but hittting it dead on takes luck.The mod wheel doesn't have a centering spring but the pitch bender does, and both wheels are located in an awkward place,

But these issues are minor. The keyboard has a good feel, and the transport buttons are conveniently-placed (and very convenient). I've usually been saatisfied with M-Audio's equipment, and the Oxygen 49 is no exception.

Took this controller out of the box and plugged it into my Mac. I use Garage Band and Reason 6 software. I plugged in the USB cable, turned it on and started making music. Keys feel good. Just the right amount of resistance that lets you really pound on it if you so need or a soft touch if inspiration requires it. Controls are well placed and respond well when adjusted. I did not attempt to install the Ignite software since I already have some great software. If you're just starting out in recording and making computer based music this is a great little controller for a decent price.
