Oxygen 61 gives even the most serious players a 5-octave keyboard they can love, complete with a built-in USB MIDI interface and tons of controls. A total of 35 controllers-including 9 sliders, 8 knobs and 15 buttons-can easily map to any MIDI-assignable parameters in your hardware and software rig. While easy to program, the Oxygen 61's complete MIDI implementation will also allow you to go as deep as you want to go. Store 10 different setups in on-board non-volatile memory, plus manage an infinite number with M-Audio's free Enigma software for Mac and PC. Bus-powered operation and a weight of just 9 lbs. means that you can use the Oxygen 61 anywhere your computer goes.
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. Use the nine MIDI-assignable sliders for software mixer volumes or as drawbars on your virtual tone-wheel organ. 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.
Oxygen controllers feature dedicated front-panel function buttons to easily access common operations like preset 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 about 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 M-Audio's free Enigma software editor/librarian for PC and Mac.
