The Oxygen 61 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller delivers next-generation functionality from M-Audio, an innovator in mobile music production technology. The Oxygen 61 features 8 assignable knobs and 9 assignable sliders, plus dedicated transport and track select buttons. DirectLink mode automatically maps these controls to common DAW functions including transport, mixer, track pan, and plug-in parameters. Built-in factory presets offer support for popular virtual instruments right out of the box so there's no complicated setup required. Velocity-sensitive keys and a sleek, compact design round out a portable keyboard that's perfect for both production and performance. No other MIDI controller in this price range has so much functionality while remaining easy to use.

Streamlined session control:
Featuring 8 assignable knobs, 9 assignable sliders, dedicated transport controls, and track up and down buttons, the M-Audio Oxygen 61 keyboard 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 a QWERTY keyboard and a MIDI controller. DirectLink mode automatically maps Oxygen 61 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. Use the dedicated select buttons to quickly switch MIDI channels and presets for tactile control over multitimbral hardware and software instruments. Interfacing a MIDI controller with your music software doesn't get any easier than this.

Professional quality:
M-Audio is a pioneer in the category of mobile MIDI keyboard controllers. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, you'll find that the Oxygen 61 controller has a solid, reliable build and puts as much musicality into the keyboard as it does into the complement of other MIDI controls.

Pro Tools compatible:
The M-Audio Oxygen 61 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with Pro Tools software, which is the industry-standard DAW found in professional, project, and personal studios around the world. With DirectLink, the Oxygen 61 controls instantly map to key parameters on the Pro Tools Mixer, Edit and Transport windows, as well as the powerful suite of virtual instruments bundled with Pro Tools. Together, Oxygen 61 and Pro Tools software provide streamlined workflow in a formidable system with tons of interface options and industry-standard file compatibility.

Good Controller

Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 61 - USB MIDI Controller:

Noticed that no one else had reviewed this one yet, so figured I would share my opinions. I've had this controller for almost 2 years now and have never had any issues with it whatsoever. Installation/setup is extremely simple, especially if your DAW of choice includes a preset for this particular controller (lots of them do). Overall construction isn't the sturdiest. The keys are very light to the touch (even as synth action goes) and a bit flimsier feeling than some (Axiom, Keystation, MPK, etc), but once you get used to them they actually feel okay and have surprisingly good velocity sensitivity for playing those expressive piano parts. The transport and track change buttons are great and feel solid; I use them constantly. I do NOT like the knobs however, they really should have made them endless encoders. The faders get the job done, although they can be kinda jumpy too (like the knobs). I prefer adjusting mix levels with the mouse anyway, so it hasn't affected me much but YMMV. Overall, I would say that this is a good controller for someone just starting out, or someone with a very limited budget. If you've got more money to spend, there's definitely higher quality, better feeling boards out there.
