The Oxygen Series
M-Audio pioneered the portable MIDI controller market with the Oxygen series of keyboard controllers. Today, M-Audio continues to be a leader of this technology by developing intuitive controllers for software-based music production and performance. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, the new Oxygen series controllers offer more control, deep hardware/software integration, and come equipped with a reliable build that enables you to make music on the go or implement these controllers into any studio.

Streamlined Control
With an array of assignable knobs, pads, and a fader, Oxygen 25 gives you total control over your software, allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music without ever reaching for the mouse. It features 25 velocity-sensitive keys for playing chords, bass lines, and melodies; eight assignable knobs for tweaking effect plugins and virtual instruments; eight velocity-sensitive pads for triggering samples or finger drumming; and an assignable fader that is ideal for controlling the master output or mixing tracks together. Oxygen 25 also has dedicated transport controls and track-up and -down buttons that allow you to initiate play, stop, and record in the DAW environment right from your keyboard controller.

Use Your Favorite DAW
The Oxygen 25 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with popular DAWs including Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and many more. Oxygen 25's controls instantly map to key parameters in your favorite DAW, enabling you to immediately tweak the mixers, editors, and transport windows. Additionally, Oxygen 25 has built-in customizable mapping presets that quickly interface Oxygen 25 with your favorite effect plugins and virtual instruments. The factory presets map Oxygen 25 to the bundled software, SONiVOX Twist, so you can plug in and start making music right out of the box. Setting up a MIDI controller with your software doesnt get any easier than this.

Ableton Live Lite
Ableton Live Lite is included with Oxygen 25 for immediate music creation. One of the most popular performance and production programs available in the world, Ableton Live Lite is a powerful music creation tool that enables musicians and producers to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit musical ideas in a fluid audio/MIDI environment. Host plugins and use Oxygen 25 to produce, compose, or perform all within Ableton Live Lite. When you are satisfied with your work, Ableton Live lets you save it or mix it down.

SONiVOX TWIST
SONiVOX Twist is a spectral morphing synthesis virtual instrument. Comprised of a dynamic interface, an advanced pattern generator, and onboard effects, Twist lets you create serious sounds using simple controls. Two swirling sound layers provide unique harmonic controls and form the basis of every patch.

The full sized keys are comfortable, easy to play and responsive. The controller connects well to Native Instruments easily. The number of features makes it sufficient for modulation with easy-to-use and quality-feeling control knobs and wheels. I'm not a piano player, so I use this for chords and simple one-handed melodies, which makes this keyboard great. I originally had the Code 49, but found the features and size of the controller to be excessive. The oxygen 25 fits comfortably on the desk, which I appreciate and so far has served me really well.
