Product Description

Total MIDI Control
MIDI isn't just about triggering notes -and the Oxygen series has what it takes to access all those deep parameters in your software and hardware so you can get the most out of them. Map the eight knobs to any synth parameters you want to program or perform with -or to mixer controls like volume, panning and effects send. Assign the buttons to trigger samples and anything else that is MIDI-programmable. Assignment is simple, yet has the power to let you delve as deep as you want. Each controller can map to just about any applicable parameter in the MIDI spec, including independent channel addressing for each. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Easy Programming
Oxygen controllers feature dedicated front-panel function buttons to easily access common operations like preset, program or channel up/down, octave up/down, and transpose up/down. Use the Controller Mute button to prevent parameters from jumping when you change them, then press Snapshot to transmit all current settings. The Advanced Function button allows the keyboard to serve as a data-entry device for controller assignment and similar setup functions. The front-panel 3-segment LCD gives you the information you need for programming parameters at a glance. 10 non-volatile memory locations instantly save and recall your favorite presets -and you can manage an entire preset library on your computer via SysEx dumps and the free Enigma software editor/librarian for PC and Mac.

Free Enigma Editor/Librarian Software
Download Enigmaa powerful software editor/librarian for Mac and PC that lets you easily program, store and load setups for M-Audio and Evolution USB MIDI controllers. Enigma includes a huge library of files for your favorite VST plug-ins, instruments and host apps. Programming is as simple as dragging the software parameter you want to control onto the graphic representation of the controller on your screen. With Enigma, your library of controller presets is virtually unlimited.

Mobile Operation
The original Oxygen8 defined a new era of mobile keyboard controllers-and now there's an entire line to choose from. The entire Oxygen series is extremely compact and lightweight and all models are powered directly from your computer's USB bus. Choose the size that's best for your needs, then take your music anywhere you want to go.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (248 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Not a bad unit if one lands in your lap"
Sound: Makes no sounds of its own, except a slightly plastic percussive sound when you hit it with something. Feature: Pretty feature-packed for such a small keyboard. 8 knobs for midi controls, a data entry slider, and each key on the keyboard can be assigned as a midi controller at the push of a button -- then back to being a key again. In the back it has two midi outs for controlling computer gear and tone modules separately, and a USB interface as well. It also has THREE power options, 9v wall wart, 6 AA batteries or USB power from your computer. It is at its most useful as a midi controller, though, and less as a playable keyboard. Its very stiff plastic keys are not comfortable to play, the pitch bend and modulation wheel are in a strange place to save space, and the 21-key range is uncomfortably tiny.. even smaller than my old Moog Prodigy and Roland SH-101! But it does have a couple of lightning-fast response Octave Down/Up buttons. Still, just keep in mind that 21 keys is really small and buy it for the midi control features and you'll be happy. Quality: It's pretty solid. It's plastic, but make no mistake it's not a flimsy thin plastic. The rubber feet had fallen off mine during shipping, but they stuck right back on and haven't moved since. I've got no complaints about its ruggedness. The keys just respond pretty stiff. Value: I got mine as a bundle with the FM7 (no longer available). As a standalone, I think it's a little pricey for such a small keyboard. It's real value is as a midi controller, but you're paying for the additional feature of the keys. The Wow Factor: Let's be honest, it looks like a toy. It looks out of place next to my other gear. My 4-year-old thinks it looks cool and can't understand that I didn't buy it for him. If it doesn't prove a bit more useful soon, I'll probably go ahead and give it to him for his own computer. Overall: Ah. I got it as a bundle for less than the software alone normally costs, so I can't complain one bit. But at the market price, I don't think I'd buy one, I'd have to go for something bigger and test it out first to see how the keys respond. But the bigger ones cost as much as used synths that still have dynamite sounds, like the Korg M1 and a lot of new, low-end Yamahas that still have midi in/out. So I can't really justify buying just a midi controller.

Feature: The knobs and the slider are programable, wich is useful although the programming method is a little unconfortable. Quality: You know M-audio, they're not exactly the best out there. The keys feel cheap, but it makes its job. You have better options and quality with Evolution but Oxygen is the less expensive, so it

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
