Dudaba mucho en pedirlo porque nadie habla de cómo se sienten las teclas. De hecho ni en la página de m-audio encontré mucha información al respecto. Pero no me arrepiento de haberlo pedido. El teclado en general está muy bien hecho y se nota que va a durar. El aftertouch está genial. Y las teclas son semipesadas... la sensibilidad es buena y se pueden tocar partes de piano cómodamente. El precio me pareció bueno y llegó antes de lo pactado. Recomendado
Admiraba a M-AUDIO en sus teimpo cuando Axiom domino el mundo de los controladores premium y bien construidos, ahora el echo de sacar este tipo de controladores, no es algo atinado, aparte por el precio exagerado,no vale la pena, teclas de mala calidad, botones duros mala calidad de materiales, Ojala M-Audio retome su nombre de lo que antes era...
Have been a long-standing fan of M-Audio for many years and have owned every version of the Oxygen Midi Controller they've ever released. Have always had mixed results with them and found they were often too cheaply made so that they only lasted a couple of years before needing to be replaced. It was always the sliders that started first, then the knobs and then finally the keybed. However, being quite cheap, they were cheap enough to replace (and it has raised concerns about whether m-audio are just e-waste generators and have no real qualms about making stuff that ends up in the bin).
When I needed to buy a new midi controller recently, I naturally looked around and was actually going to go with an Arturia controller this time since there are plenty reviews praising their build quality. However, noting that m-audio are now making pro studio grade gear, I figured I'd give it a go and have to say, the build quality is lightyears ahead of anything else I've owned from them. It feels really solid though there's no real weight to it. Light enough to drag to a gig or two.
I'm only just scratching the surface but already managed to get it working with Cubase and Reason with literally nothing more than a couple of button presses. However, that's where the simplicity ended and have spent most of the evening trying to get the thing to work with VCV Rack - literally nothing would map to the sliders or controls on the keyboard. Notes were playing just fine but I guess they don't really have any complication to them. Unfortunately, when it comes to VCV, there just isn't a preset and no amount of trying to create one to work with it would actually work. In the end, I figured out there's a pure midi mode that you can enable which is the actual thing that made it work. Now I figured that out, I've been able to get it working fully with VCV.
So, if you're using something pretty standard, like Ableton, Cubase, Reason, etc, a couple of button presses is all it takes and it just works. If you're using something non-standard that doesn't have a built-in preset, then, be prepared to spend a few hours trying to figure it out. It's a class compliant device so it should work with any midi gear but, if you want to map any of the controls to anything, that's entirely a different story.
The keybed is decent though it feels a bit light but I've spent the better part of the last couple of years playing on a Fantom and Montage so, I think it's a bit much to expect something like this to match up to premium grade gear like those. However, I think it's definitely a step up from synths like the Jupiter X and the JD-XA where I do actually prefer the keybed on the Oxygen Pro over those. Feels a bit more responsive and the keys actually feel pretty good on old fingers like mine.
So, overall, I'm quite impressed and credit to M-Audio for the effort they've put into it. Going to give it a proper road test in the next few weeks so I'll be back to update this review once I've tried it in a gig or two. Even if it's not great for live performance, it's already proving to be incredibly useful in the studio.
The entire Oxygen Pro series currently have a non functional pitch bend wheel. It has been reported that it will be fixed in a firmware update but that was announced back in early February and so far nothing. M-Audio support is almost impossible to reach from the UK. The UK support provider has no information and very little contact with the main company. It's potentially a great keyboard so I'm hanging on waiting for the the update - but the total lack of information or clarity coming from M-Audio is shockingly bad.
That's the best 61 key controller I ever used and believe me, I've had and tested, let's say "a few" (and sold most of them due to their disadvantages). You won't find anything better for less than £250. Shame there's no 88 keys keybed as I do compose very often for philharmonic orchestra but hey, it has aftertouch feature in this price range! A bit to much pressure has to be used but still works fine. Noisy, "clicky" sound when pressing keys but this can be forgiven as it has so many sound control options. Fantastic integration with DAW's, personal midi mappings, 16 pads, sliders on the left side (yay!), software included etc. And this tiny display surprisingly does the job, you don't really need a bigger one. Well done, M-audio. Cheers, Si.
I am a keyboardist and so have played many keyboards, so for it's price I would say it's really good as additional effects or as a second board. If you're not a keys player, then this will suit you fine for midi recordings etc. The only issue is that the drum pads aren't easy to set up and I haven't been able to get them working with Ableton yet. Also, the pitch bend is very slow in comparison to regular pitch bends, so as a soloist, this was quite disappointing. The aftertouch is great, the keyboard is very sensitive or not 100% like a piano, because sometimes it registers me playing certain notes a bit louder than they should be, but this only effects recording and isn't that noticeable during live performance. But overall, really great for its price. Couldn't ask for lunch more, just if you're looking for a pitch bend, this might not be the keyboard for you.
I've owned a fair few midi keyboards over the years and this is by far my favourite. The chord and scale modes are exceptional, the build quality is decent and is very easy to use. You won't be disappointed.
Replaced my novation launchkey with this item, am well impressed, love the arp and chord features, great feeling keybed with aftertouch and also has midi out socket, can't go wrong for the money, highly recommended.
