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 32 velocity-sensitive keys, eight pads, and four assignable knobs and 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.
The Oxygen Pro Mini 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. Smart Scale, on the other hand, simplifies the composition of harmonically perfect songs. With Note Repeat, notes are repeated automatically in an individually adjustable ratio. The back panel is equipped with a MIDI output that can be used to control analogue hardware synthesizers, 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 into the setup
The controllers of the Oxygen Pro series are suitable for a wide range of applications - whether it's on the stage or 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 in detail, 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, as are the Velvet Mini Grand, Vacuum, Boom, DB33, and Xpand!2 virtual instruments. After all, the Oxygen series is considered to be the versatile control centre of a software-based music studio.
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.
The transport controls 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 the tracks using the 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.
