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.

It's a homerun for controllers!
by Wade B Powell from Melbourne, FloridaI had a clue of what this keyboard would do before I purchased it. A short conversation with my Sweetwater Rep, Jeff Greene, verified the purchase. I just needed a small controller for adding differen... read more [+]t layers of music beds and effects inPro Tools. It works like a charm. The added benefit of being able to use the faders for PT track volume and the knobs for pan was a nice added benefit, too. Did I mention it has Transport Controls. Necessary? No, but it has been surprising how much more efficient the process has become not having to reach for the mouse.

Pretty Nice Controller - does not have the software advertised
by adam from North Mississippi Hill CountryA great little 49 key MIDI controller. Works well, seems solidly built. I can't get the latency down though which I realize should be software and not this things fault, but all areas to change it are... read more [+] greyed out and it's stuck at 20 ms, enough to drive you crazy and not let you stay on the beat. I'm betting 98% that it is my fault and not the controller's.

My problem, the reason for a star off, is that I have a ton of virtual instruments to play with it but I needed the software that is advertised as bundled with it (Avid Ignite), a lightweight program but can do some things that you need to do. I would not have bought this controller if the software weren't bundled with it. Unfortunately, it's not, nor is it just a mail-in annoying thing, the software doesn't exist, you are not getting it anytime soon. I suggest they stop advertising it as bundled. You get a redemption card with a key to enter after you download the software....after they make it! It does have some less exciting software bundled with it, I forget which, but it's one that I didn't want or want to pay for especially when I don't get what I did pay for.
Now, for some, this could be a bonus, and maybe an extra star, if you order before they finish making the software that is supposed to come with it, you'll get the one that does come with it and then another when it's done! So, depending on how you look at it or what you need at the time it could be a good or bad thing. It was a bad thing for me. Like I say, I wouldn't have even ordered the controller.
But sans software this is a great machine. Solid but lightweight, feels like it could play some shows. It's been a really long time since I've used a hardware controller like this but the dedicated transport controls are a really nice addition. They may be common these days. close [-]

All the functions seem to work real well except for the USB cable in which the stock one is too loose of a connectivity and upon slight movement comes unnconnected so that I would need to restart my DAW.
The fix is the Hosa USB-210AB. It is still loose but stays connected in transmission.
The wheels on this thing are real nice while the sliders are a little wiggly. The rotary knobs are smooth and turn easily but not quite too easily. The keys are loose sideways but that might be for slide. Actually even if not, it isn't a problem.
It's classified as Oxyen 3rd gen in DAW ableton. close [-]
