New series, new functions

With the Pro version, the Oxygen series from M-Audio has received an extensive update, offering not only a new design but also new connection options and features. These include Arpeggiator, Smart Chord, and Smart Scale functions as well as practical automapping. This Pro Series model is equipped with 61 velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, 16 pads, eight assignable knobs, and nine faders. It also comes with a range of virtual instruments, so you can start producing music straight away. The Oxygen Pro Series provides users with full control over all DAW parameters, allowing them to concentrate on music creation without being distracted by the screen.

Simplified composing

The Oxygen Pro 61 has many helpful features: The internal arpeggiator can be synchronised with the DAW or used with your own clock. The Smart Chord mode enables enharmonic or custom chord voicings to be played using a single key. Smart Scale, on the other hand, simplifies the composition of harmonically perfect songs by eliminating wrong notes. In this way, only notes of the selected scale can be played. With Note Repeat, notes are repeated automatically in an individually adjustable ratio. The back panel is equipped with a five-pin MIDI output that can be used to control analogue hardware synthesizers easily, and there is also a connection for an optional sustain pedal. A Kensington MiniSaver slot serves as a physical security solution, which is especially useful in a live setting.

Easy integration

The controllers of the Oxygen Pro series are suitable for a wide range of applications - whether for live performances on stage or for recording tunes in the studio. Musicians, DJs, and producers will have a reliable companion with which to manage their virtual instruments as well as their DAW. The control of Ableton Live is particularly precise and detailed, as individual lines (scenes) can be controlled directly. The faders are linked directly to the tracks, so that the volume can be changed intuitively. The controller is well-made and the knobs and faders have a high-quality feel. Beginners in the field of music production will be pleased to learn that Pro Tools First and Ableton Live Lite are included in the scope of delivery. After all, the Oxygen series is considered to be the versatile control centre of a software-based music studio.

About M-Audio

M-Audio is one of the best-known manufacturers of MIDI controllers, audio and MIDI interfaces, monitor boxes, and other studio equipment. Founded in 1988 under the name Midiman, the company quickly made a name for itself, always focusing on practical features and value for money. With the successful Oxygen series, M-Audio was instrumental in establishing the genre of MIDI controller keyboards for DAW-based studios. For a time, M-Audio was part of Digidesign / Avid. The brand is now part of the inMusic group and its success story continues to this day.

All aboard

The transport buttons for Start, Stop, Record, and Cycle as well as the numerous controls are tailored to music production with a DAW. It is possible, for example, to control the volume of eight tracks and the master with the nine faders, while the knobs operate effects and the pads trigger clips. The latter are backlit in RGB colours and thus offer a well-organised, easy-to-read control overview. This makes it easier to visualise the status of the clip in question. Besides this, they are perfect for fingerdrumming while beatmaking. Two special keys allow you to switch between different octave positions. In addition, the keyboard can be split so that a maximum of two zones can be set up, and MIDI-CC commands can also be controlled.

Budget friendly controller with aftertouch
Petar Jovanovic 10.12.2020
With this 61 keys controller you get velocity sensitive semi-weighted keys, aftertouch, smart chord and scale mode, split zone and DAW integration with all major DAW software including FL Studio. On top of that you get tons of software and other goodies to get you started learning, producing and playing music.
The build quality is good and everything is laid down nicely. The ergonomic distribution of sliders and buttons is spot on. The keys are nice and responsive.
There are only two cons:
One is that the sliders and buttons are not quite precise but they do work smoothly and in 0-127 range. The other is that the keys have no RGB lights for smart chords and scale feature. Its not a big deal but it would be nice to actually see them.
Overall this is a quality build and budget friendly controller with aftertouch and as such well worth the price in my hones opinion.

Viel besser als erwartet.
DjBobby 07.03.2022
Der Service von Thomann war ausgezeichnet, schneller Versand, schnelle Lieferung, sicher verpackt, ein Vergnügen. Obwohl ich professioneller Musiker, aber kein Pianist bin, brauchte ich eine anständige Tastatur nur für einige unterstützende Arbeiten. 61 halbgewichtete Tasten schienen für meine Bedürfnisse ausreichend zu sein. Nachdem ich viele der Rezensionen gelesen hatte, in denen Probleme mit dem DAW-Mapping angesprochen wurden, war ich etwas skeptisch, ob ich das Risiko eingehen und es selbst versuchen sollte. Ich habe eine ganze Weile gezögert, weil ich wusste, dass ich keine Geduld mit dem manuellen Mapping haben würde. Mit vielen Midi-Keyboards zu Hause und einem Klavier war es am Anfang etwas seltsam, halbgewichtete Tasten zu verwenden, das Gefühl war definitiv nicht natürlich. Als ich anfing, es jeden Tag zu benutzen, habe ich mich vollständig daran gewöhnt und es einfach vergessen. Nun zum DAW-Mapping. Ich verwende meistens so etwas wie 85 % Logic Pro und 15 % Ableton. Nach dem Online-Handbuch konnte ich den Oxygen Pro schnell einstellen und sofort loslegen. Ich hatte überhaupt keine Probleme, es war viel einfacher als gedacht und es hat mir geholfen, meinen Arbeitsablauf zu beschleunigen. Alles in allem eine angenehme Überraschung, besser als erwartet.
