At Musikmesse 2014: Today gear maker M-Audio introduced a new series of Oxygen controllers.
The Oxygen series, available in 25-, 49- or 61-key models, combines a velocity-sensitive keybed with a series of 8 trigger pads for launching audio clips, triggering percussion sounds and more. Control capabilities expand with 8 assignable knobs for adjusting plugin parameters and mixing tasks.
The Oxygen 25 (pictured, right) features an assignable master fader, while the Oxygen 49 and Oxygen 61 (top right) provide 9 total faders for “virtually limitless” MIDI manipulation. Each keyboard in the series features an LCD screen and transport controls for seamless operation with digital audio software. A 6.3mm (1/4-inch) sustain input jack is built in for expressive performances.
Every keyboard in the Oxygen series includes a powerful software package for creating music right away, including Ableton Live Lite, and spectral-morphing soft synth Twist from SONiVOX.
