M-Audio has introduced the new Oxygen controller series. Created for musicians and producers, they introduce a host of controls, an intuitive layout, and a cutting-edge software suite for making music.
Available in 25-, 49- or 61-key models, the Oxygen series combines a velocity-sensitive keybed with a series of 8 trigger pads. Used for launching audio clips, triggering percussion sounds and more, the pads also provide velocity-sensitive response and illuminated feedback.
Control capabilities expand with 8 assignable knobs – perfect for adjusting plugin parameters and mixing tasks. The Oxygen 25 features an assignable master fader while the Oxygen 49 and 61 provide 9 total faders for virtually limitless MIDI manipulation.
Each keyboard in the series features an LCD screen and transport controls for seamless operation with digital audio software. A 6.3mm (¼-inch) sustain input jack is built in for expressive performances.
Every keyboard in the Oxygen series includes a powerful software package for creating music right away, starting with Ableton Live Lite music creation software and Twist, a spectral-morphing software synthesizer from SONiVOX.
