Overview

M-Audio pioneered the portable MIDI controller market with the Oxygen series of keyboard controllers. Today, M-Audio continues to be a leader of this technology by developing intuitive controllers for software-based music production and performance. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, the new Oxygen series controllers offer more control, deep hardware/software integration, and come equipped with a reliable build that enables you to make music on the go or implement these controllers into any studio.

Streamlined Control
With an array of assignable knobs, pads, and faders, Oxygen 49 gives you total control over your software, allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music without ever reaching for the mouse. It features 49 velocity-sensitive keys for playing chords, bass lines, and melodies; eight assignable knobs for tweaking effect plugins and virtual instruments; eight velocity-sensitive pads for triggering samples or finger drumming; and nine assignable faders for mixing tracks together and controlling the master output. Oxygen 49 also has dedicated transport controls and track-up and -down buttons that allow you to initiate play, stop, and record in the DAW environment right from your keyboard controller.

Use Your Favorite DAW
The Oxygen 49 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with popular DAWs including Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and many more. Oxygen 49's controls instantly map to key parameters in your favorite DAW, enabling you to immediately tweak the mixers, editors, and transport windows. Additionally, Oxygen 49 has built-in customizable mapping presets that quickly interface Oxygen 49 with your favorite effect plugins and virtual instruments. The factory presets map Oxygen 49 to the bundled software, SONiVOX Twist, so you can plug in and start making music right out of the box. Setting up a MIDI controller with your software doesn't get any easier than this.


Ableton Live Lite
Ableton Live Lite is included with Oxygen 49 for immediate music creation. One of the most popular performance and production programs available in the world, Ableton Live Lite is a powerful music creation tool that enables musicians and producers to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment. Host plugins and use Oxygen 49 to produce, compose, or perform all within Ableton Live Lite. When you are satisfied with your work, Ableton Live lets you save it or mix it down.

SONiVOX TWIST
SONiVOX Twist is a spectral morphing synthesis virtual instrument. Comprised of a dynamic interface, an advanced pattern generator, and onboard effects, Twist lets you create serious sounds using simple controls. Two swirling sound layers provide unique harmonic controls and form the basis of every patch. Sculpt your sound with a multi-mode filter, independent amp and filter envelope generators, and a LFO that can be sync'd to tempo.

      Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 MKIV:

      This is the 2nd one ive had in 3 days. IT works out of the box, then when i close my laptop for an hour, come back to it. and the same 4 exact keys wont play a single note (they play the 2-3 keys next to it thus making a loud and messy chord). HORIBLE QUALITY!!! Shouldnt have issues with 2 different ones in less than a week. M-Audio needs to fix this. It is a hassle going back and forth for replacement. Never getting this brand again!

          I use the synth to compose step sequencer sequences for songwriting in a DAW. I use it to trigger sounds from the DAW and it is working fine.

          Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 49 MKIV:

          This is a decent keyboard, no more, no less.

          The keys are hyper-springy... doesn't bother me, but it's worth noting. I'll get to the velocity later. Knobs, faders, and buttons all feel cheap and plastic-y, but are easy to program.

          The pads are simultaneously its biggest star and biggest letdown. They FEEL great - solid, firm, and the lights are cool (i guess). However, because the default mapping is in a ridiculous fashion (it maps the pads to mirror a set of keys that make no sense), and because there's NO WAY TO CHANGE IT (you can transpose the entire set of pads up and down, but not individually, nor can you remap them to MIDI CC), it makes them pretty useless.

          Velocity, from the pads to the keys, is terrible. When you use any of the velocity curves for the keys, it's either making you hammer on the keys for a decent sound, or if you even look at the keys wrong the get crazy loud - no middle ground (except to use the fixed velocity setting, but then what's the point of using a keyboard?) The pads are too sensitive - it requires an incredibly deft touch to get even semi-modulated perc and drum lines.

          I got mine for a deal, and was hoping to have a good time. I sold it, and got a Nektar Impact LX49. Much better, in every way, shape, and form. Don't waste your time with M-audio keyboards.

              Like another reviewer, I had two different units over a couple of days. One of the keys (2nd highest B) played multiple notes. No joke! Play a B, and you'd hear A, Bb, B and D. The same problem on two units.

              Guitar Center should drop this product from their stores ASAP.
