The New M-Audio Oxygen Pro Series - a Breath of Fresh Air

By Adam Jones | Published 24.11.20

The brand-new Oxygen Pro series of MIDI controllers brings multiple performance capabilities and smart control to your studio or performance rig. Join the legions of producers and musicians using M-Audio around the world – from beginners to professionals.

The M-Audio Oxygen Pro series is true to its name. Offering professional features with multiple control types, Smart Controls, and Auto-Mapping, these are quintessential studio and live performance tools.

With intuitive designs and seamless integration with your software, you can keep your focus on creating music – not programming!

The Features

M-Audio Oxygen Controls

The Oxygen Pro series is built around the core of a MIDI keyboard - available with 25, 49, or 61 keys, plus a Mini-key version.

Each model is USB powered, featuring useful and essential tools for modern music production. You’ll find an OLED screen, Smart Chord & Smart Scale technology, Auto-Mapping, a built-in arpeggiator, and Note Repeat.

 The Oxygen Pro 25, 49, and 61 each have 16 RGB backlit velocity-sensitive pads, as well as eight assignable knobs, 5-pin MIDI output, and an incredibly smooth-feeling keyboard bed, providing maximum control of your software.

The Pro 49 and Pro 61 also feature nine assignable faders. The Oxygen Pro Mini also packs a punch for its size, with eight performance pads, four knobs, and four faders in its compact footprint.

Automatic Mapping

M-Audio Oxygen Plugins

M-Audio products are known for their innovative and easy workflows. The Oxygen Pro series is no different; it can automatically map to popular DAWs such as the included MPC Beats, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Studio One, and Steinberg Cubase!

The Oxygen Series will also auto-map to the included Air Music Tech virtual instruments (Velvet, Mini Grand, Vacuum, Boom, DB-33, Xpand!2). In an instant, you can open any virtual instrument and get creating – no worrying about mapping and parameters.

Smart Chord and Smart Scale

Smart Chord and Smart Scale are simple, yet essential functions on the Oxygen Pro series of MIDI Keyboards. Smart Chord allows you to play full chords with a single press of a key, whilst Smart Scale enables you to set the key bed so that only notes in the selected scale are able to be played.

This feature is ideal for live performance, so you can play within a chosen scale without the risk of playing any “wrong” notes, or, if you’re learning to play, you can find your way through the scales on the keyboard.
