    Meh controller, wouldn't recommend

    M-Audio Oxygen 8 v2Published on 05/13/12 at 22:42
    I borrowed this off a friend who bought it for about 163 bucks off ebay. It is a basic 25 key MIDI keyboard with 8 Knobs A pitch bend and modulation wheel and some other various buttons. This is a pretty average Midi keyboard, nothing special at all, velocity sensitive non weighted keys, USB connection with a MIDI out a 1/4" sustain pedal jack. There's really nothing special here, it works fine and performs well, but there isn't much use in a 25 key keyboard. I would recommend it if you can get it at a cut rate, but otherwise, meh. I'd say its worth it to save up and get something like the Axiom 25, 48 or 64.

I'd say its worth it to save up and get something like the Axiom 25, 48 or 64.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup was plug in, select keyboard in preferences and play. Nothing special, everything worked as it should. Operation of the keyboard is real simple, and everything works the way you'd think it would. There's nothing wrong with this keyboard, and nothing special. It's an ok entry level keyboard, but certainly not the best by any means. I'd save my money though.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I'm very impartial to this keyboard, as it's nothing special in any way. The keys aren't that great, and would be better if they were weighted. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, I'd say shell out a little more for the Axiom series, as it's well worth it. I do like the simplicity and the plug n playability of it though, and it works for small purposes I.E. a bass controller. It's hard to do much with only 25 keys other than audition sounds. It's pretty durable, dropped it a few times, no damage done, but it doesn't stay in place too well on the desktop. It's kinda cheap and flimsy. It's just not worth the cash when you could get something better.

    everything has been said about the features, I use only USB, but I guess the rest works very well too.
    It is lightweight and not bulky at all, ideal for mobile use.

    UTILIZATION

    touch is not bad, although I have not had another experience like this keyboard, for all I do is quite enough!
    the manual is useless, it's plug & play!


    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months
    this is my first midi controller
    I like its many knobs and buttons configurable
    quality / price excellent (that the M-Audio)
    experience does not play in my case it's a question of means

    Very simple config, mac cubase is driven very fast by importing the small file you want (I'll put the link soon) pc, sometimes it does not respond as well but ... ets pc, it depends ...)

    A button allows you to choose some parameters to be modified by those two keys + and -
    9a can be a bit long to spend in his A's Z. ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    Cheap, not fragile (finally something that can be put into a suitcase IN BUNKER without fear ... and for the price I've paid much less fear!)

    A little trick: by connecting a USB cable to the back of MAUDIO, and extremities that are usually connected to the computer, an adapter usb/220v, such as those used to recharges RLES Kodak cameras, you have a PSU gratos; it works safely with adapters for cameras kodak easyshare of the series .... mistrust still if you have any doubt, but with me it works!

    Good little add-on!

    I played much more with Stylus RMX to create my rhythm!
    The transport keys are convenient for cubase too!

    The feel is correct!

    The manual, I flew!
    Must enter the parameters to understand the concept of the machine!

    UTILIZATION
