From Our Research Team:
An Affordable Way to Take Control of Your DAW and Plug-ins!With the Oxygen 61 keyboard and control surface from M-Audio, music creation couldn't be easier! It features 61 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 61'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 61.
M-Audio Oxygen 61 61-Key Controller Keyboard and Control Surface at a Glance:
Streamlined controls you can't get lost in
One of the Oxygen 61'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 61 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 61. 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.

Beating all Expectations
by Angel from Ramstein, GermanyWell, talk about nice suprises. I got this to be my main MIDI system for my computer and it works well, manually mapped most controls and all, pretty good so far.

The surprise was when... read more [+] I plugged it in via the camera connection kit to my iPad; it just works!
I was able to use it on all MIDI-capable apps and on some of them, I was able to map parameters to the physical controls.
It does not have normal MIDI in/out ports (USB only), only one input for pedals and its synth-action keys might be too light for some but for now it is doing fantastically. close [-]

As far as keys go, this is one of the simplest hook ups, plug it into the Mac and open up a session, the control surfaces in the DAW recognize it immediately and BOOM! Your recording.
