From Our Research Team:
An Affordable Way to Take Control of Your DAW and Plug-ins!With the Oxygen 49 keyboard and control surface from M-Audio, music creation couldn't be easier! It features 49 keys, nine sliders, and dedicated transport and track selection buttons, offering user-friendly, hands-on parameter manipulation for a large variety of DAWs and plug-ins. The Oxygen 49's DirectLink mode assigns each slider, button, and encoder to common functions such as mixer, pan, and transport controls in DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic, Reason, and Cubase, as well as several common plug-ins. Velocity sensitive keys and USB power also add flexibility and portability to the Oxygen 49.
M-Audio Oxygen 49 49-Key Controller Keyboard and Control Surface at a Glance:
Streamlined controls you can't get lost in
One of the Oxygen 49's primary features is that it is incredibly easy use. The layout, divided neatly into separate sections, makes finding the right control element a snap. For instance, the transport has its own dedicated section under the encoder knobs, so you can't get it confused with the on-the-fly selector buttons near the LCD display. The sliders are divided into two banks of four with a separate slider that is typically assigned to the master fader in a DAW.
Instant control of popular DAWs and plug-ins
DirectLink automatically maps it sliders, encoders, and transport to parameters like track volumes, pans values, and the transport controls of several common DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic, Reason, and Cubase, with additional DAW support to come. Also, the Oxygen 49 contains built-in factory presets that support popular virtual instruments, adding a tactile element to adjusting parameters and increasing its value as a live keyboard.
Super-affordable Pro Tools parameter control
There are still few control surfaces that will work with Pro Tools, most of which cost many times more than the Oxygen 49. Now you can get a multi-function keyboard controller whose compatibility extends fully into Pro Tools — all the way from M-Powered up to HD! With this ultra-affordable controller, there's no need to mouse around any more.

The Breath of MIDI
by Mark Bolton from Florence, MS USAI've had this for about three and a half months now, and I love it.

I use it only as a MIDI controller, not for the control surfaces. I run Logic Pro 9 (and have used with GarageBand '11), and ... read more [+]have had no problems.
The keys are real smooth and responsive. By all means better than all the low end Akai controllers, which have no weight to them. These have the slightest bit added to them.
The video, however, shows an alternate reality about the control surfaces. They're difficult, to me. It's hard to get them set right, and the learn feature is rather troublesome. close [-]

So far so good.
by Jim Lytle from San Jose, CAI will start by saying that I have not bought a new controller since 1991. I am pleased with the number of sliders, knobs and buttions there are for $159. You can see 9 sliders, 8 knobs and 9 butto... read more [+]ns but what you cannot see is that each of 10 patches has a full set of those. So it is 9 sliders times 10 etc. I love 49 keys because you always know that you are playing on about half of 88 keys and hitting the octave buttion will give you the next half of 88. I am going to be very interested to see about durability after 5 years. The other reviews about M-Audio gave them what I consider a passing grade for durability. Also, this guy is light and easy to carry - just what many of us need from a portable controller. I am a person who likes sax and flute samples so the 2 wheel controller is best for me. close [-]

The keyword with this controller is compatibility. I bought this keyboard a few years ago and have been able to use it with Pro Tools, Logic Pro, and Reason. Not only is the Oxygen 49 versitile, it is also easy to use and very affordable. Simply put, if you are a keyboard player, the Oxygen 49 is almost as essential as breathing.
