The Oxygen 25 USB MIDI Controller (MK3) from M-AUDIO is a velocity sensitive MIDI controller with eight MIDI assignable knobs, one MIDI assignable slider and six dedicated transport controls.

      under 100$,hard to beat for the price.the action on the keyboard has a good feel,plenty of controls on board to link up with your software.a great little controller for bass or horn parts.i bought it to solo on and it works well for that but its just a little short.3 octaves would be perfect but as of right now its 2 or 4 octaves(25 0r 49 keys).maybe m-audio will fill in the gap and make a 3 octave controller.if they do,ill buy it.

      I started at 4-stars but dropped it to three after finishing the writeup.

      The best part of this controller (and the primary reason for choosing this over all others) is that it weighs less than 4 pounds and the smaller footprint with the wheels up top. To keep myself occupied on weekends when I travel for weeks at a time, I can throw this in my suitcase without nearing the 50lb limit once I add clothes. It's handy for composing and laying down basic MIDI tracks in Pro Tools, and another factor in the choice was the big transport controls right there, for quicker punches or retakes without grabbing a mouse and looking at the laptop. Lastly, the knobs and slider have just enough resistance that they shouldn't have a problem being accidentally bumped when reaching for another one.

      But then the joy ends. The wheel controllers are glitchy. Bend a note too quickly and your data contains spikes and jumps that have to be edited manually. The knobs are also glitchy, worthless for mix automation. The transport controls stop functioning (possibly other control mapping as well) necessitating a complete shutdown of everything, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, then reassigning again in Pro Tools. Sometimes I know it is going to happen when I open a recent session and get the message "the original controller M Audio Oxygen 25 is not connected..." but not always. It is connected to a charging USB port (up to 5A) so power is not the issue.

      I have to blame the product line, not this unit, because I have an Oxygen 49 which experiences the same quirks. Other MIDI devices and controllers at a different Q-point which I have used (including Novation and Korg nano) do not seem to have these issues.

      All that leaves as a positive is the light weight. For that reason I still bring it along, but it is not suitable for production or performance as a controller.

        Comments about M-Audio Oxygen 25 - USB MIDI Controller:

        I needed a MIDI controller for my FL Studio, I realize now its not how much fruity i can control but the external VST plugins that i have. FL instruments lets you "learn" the knobs right away which is awesome, but older VST plugins inside FL might require you do this manually from a list of all the functions of your VST software and asign them one by one. Also i try to record this asigments so i didn't have to set them every time but i can't, so thats why i am not giving 5 stars. That and the fact that the Play, Stop, Record buttons are not lit and are the same color, i think at least Record should be red. I love the weight of the keys, the smoothness of the knobs and the fact that its almost plug and play for modern VST plugins (outside FL) and almost any DAW.

          I'm having an awesome time with my new controler. I'm still going over the tutorials with the included software, but it's a whole new way of laying down tracks, and I have to say it's brilliant.

                    I got this to control some synth components in Ableton Live, like Analog. I wanted to be able to play notes and change filter and effect parameters easily and this keyboard works well. It has plenty of knobs and keys to map, while being compact and light enough to carry back and forth from my studio.

                    I recommend this for anyone needing a controller thats not too expensive and can control filters and effects while also playing midi notes and scales.

                      The Oxygen 25 is the perfect compact MIDI controller for any beginning producer. All the controls and functions feel great and allow for easy and dynamic control of the software. Before getting started , i would check out M-Audio's website and download their "Direct-Link" Technology which allows you to auto sync your record, playback, and all other programing functions on the controller with the software that you plan to use.

                      This is the perfect piece of equipment if you are looking for something to quickly lay down synth and drum patterns and is also great for modulating different effects and parameters of the program with the 8 knobs, pitch/mod wheels, and slider.

                      I feel this controller would be best for recording and not for live performance, but i don't see any reason why that couldn't work!

                        I bought this keyboard as a way to control pitch bend and tempo in Logic Pro. Now, more than this, I find I quite like its small footprint and light weight so intend to take it traveling with me as an input keyboard for my computer. It plugged straight into my machine and was immediately useable with no configuration needed.

                          I use Propellerhead Record primarily and all the controls work with the program without having to do any configuring. The fader controls the master volume of the instrument by default, not the track fader (like in Logic). Having the transport controls is huge. Not that it matters, but nice job on the color selection!

                          I live and work on a boat, so the size is a great fit. I am using Garageband to compose music for a travel documentary series that my husband and I produce. I got the Oxygen 25 to use as a controller. It was plug and play with my GB '11 which was great, but M-Audio does not make this a totally compliant controller for GB. I can use it for master volume, but haven't figured out how the play and record buttons can be linked. I don't think they can which isn't a show stopper by any means, but would be very nice. I was concerned that it was faulty because after leaving the keyboard for a while it was not working. I found through the M-Audio site FAQ that if you have a unibody Macbook Pro it needs to use a USB hub. That fixed it and then it happened again, but this time I found out that the screen saver was kicking it out, so you have to turn it off when you walk away. Again no biggie. I am not a sound engineer so I cannot figure out all of the things this keyboard can do, but for my limited needs it works just fine. I would buy it again and M-Audio has a great user Forum where you can find all kinds of info you need on any product you buy from them. M-Audio is a great company. I have had a digital AMP and I use the fast track pro and have been very satisfied.

                            I plugged it in and it was ready to go within minutes. Tried it out with a few different synth sounds, worked great. Easy on the wallet, easy setup...I would highly recommend this for anybody getting into music production.

                                  If you want to compose short sequences, hip-hop samples etc, this thing will help you do that. You still need a strong array of VST's to get the max out of this controller. Keys, knobs have a good feel. Shifting in between octaves might be an overhead, but for creating good samples I dont need much range at a single point for your melody.

                                  Sturdy-feeling case, light weight, nice ergonomics. Feel of keys, wheels and buttons is good. Build is better than previous M-Audio small controllers.

                                    under 100$,hard to beat for the price.the action on the keyboard has a good feel,plenty of controls on board to link up with your software.a great little controller for bass or horn parts.i bought it to solo on and it works well for that but its just a little short.3 octaves would be perfect but as of right now its 2 or 4 octaves(25 0r 49 keys).maybe m-audio will fill in the gap and make a 3 octave controller.if they do,ill buy it.
