The M audio Ozone is a very small and compact midi keyboard that will sync up with your program even if there isn’t a preset config for it, you can just use generic controller. It has plenty of knobs that you can assign to what you want to assign them to. The pitch and mod will are pretty good for such a cheap (price) keyboard. Most of the keyboards in this price range are really plastic and the mod and pitch wheels are really stiff. The M Audio Ozone is that bad though .
Installation is as easy as it gets, just plug it in and put the disk In and you are good to go. Set it up in your software and start using it right away. You can set the knobs and sliders to do whatever you want them to do, you don’t have to follow whats printed on the keyboard itself.
Getting started couldn’t be any easier with this you will have no issues getting it up and running.
Overall, a great midi keyboard. Its very small and compact so you can put it in your laptop case and take it anywhere with you. I have used it on a plane before flying coach and we all know how small planes are with elbow room! Its very light and easy to use, nothing special with it. The price is great exactly what you would want to play for a similar product. There really isn’t much difference between this and lot of other midi boards that are similar. They all do the same thing, until you start getting into the bigger full size midi keyboards and you will see they can do a lot more and have way nicer feeling keys than this one does. They keys on this one are kinda “toyish” though. Real stiff and plastic like, but they will loosen up after you use it for a while.

Fonkichiken's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Mobile studio
- Extra keyboard and MIDI CONTRL surface attached to my desktop qd
- Extra amplification for instruments (computer ss)
Installation without pb (APRS ASIO config ds SX)
Sometimes the computer reinstall tt alone (ss CD install) a driver at boot (10s). Without consquences on the config.
Latest drivers available on the site M-Audio
Using Cubase SX & Wavelab 4.0
No worries for the time being audio
In "very low", the latency is 10ms infrieure for MIDI DPIT basic config of my test (PIII 1Ghz 512MB). on the other hand, 20-25ms with a VST instrument plug-in. I have not tried to fix by hand.
1 week of use
- All march
- Trs good value qualitprix
- Smart and practical monitoring
- Connections impractical rear faade
- Instrument gain (from 2) a little weak for my electro-acoustic
Finally, a product that rpond its specifications. And my expectations.
Everything I needed: keyboard / MIDI Controller and Audio Interface.
small and efficient.
used on a Compaq Presario P4 1.7 Ghz, 512 MB, 40 GB HD
direct connection to monitors (Tapco S5, really)
Install no problem
on the other hand, big problem that can INTERESTED. for a USB audio on laptops. in my case, sometimes I lose the Ozone (dconnect USB device ... or unsafe removal in Angliches). APRS technical support, I learned that it's the USB port of my laptop (NEC chipset, shit) and my USB chipset uses the same IRQ as my graphics card etc.. qd even a little heavy because even if a plant not often (about 1 time / 30 hours), a live plant! in this case, no solution, believe me, except to buy a PCMCIA sound card! So much to learn if you want to make scne with USB audio ...
Stable drivers I think ...
used with Cubase SX / Reason / Ableton and lots more.
trs good level latency (20 ms and rolls)
I get to read and record many tracks at the same time in Stereo. not bad.
I use it for over a year. the only problem I seem to come from my laptop. I'll sell it.
trs qualitprix good value.
with exprience, no USB audio on a laptop to make scne!

Buy motivated by a little test at a friend .... maconfig: nforce 2 / 1700 / 512 ddr xp.
Premire version of what should be the sound card tomorrow while wearing hand to compose and enrgistrer without lugging his PC. It should now prvoir a PC version Intgr
Everything works THE FIRST ds installed, configured in 10 Seconds-one BMOL, rebooted the incapacit of the driver when a program that uses it is open. More from Reinstalling the plant Systm, readers or recording so make sure your system is clean.
Ah ah: a default, the CPU load is one suprieure ncessite the equivalent PCI (the omni I had before). But hey saw the prx of proc athlon, I think if you want to stack the vst, a should not be too many probs.
APRS is less flexible than the PCI may be, but many stores trs.
Latency I get is minimal and does not over GNER pianist VST lowering the max. And for audio, direct monitoring erases any problem.
Exceptional quality price ratio, keyboard trs enjoyable, good pramp, direct monitoring, especially for guitar or bass. No breath, his prcis dynamic between instruments made with a super convenient trs effective.
Warning nanmoins the IRQ with the USB (see forums), and be sure to keep your system clean
