Intuitive and User-Friendly Layout

Each model has a range of keys, knobs, sliders and buttons so that everything you need for your performance is laid out right there in front of you. The semi-weighted keys provide a great playing experience and the assignable, backlit, velocity-sensitive pads are useful for a range of functions; whether you’re making beats, programming virtual instruments, or triggering samples. The knobs and sliders make tweaking parameters on virtual instruments quick and easy - particularly on the 49 and 61-key models, plus you can even control many functions in your DAW from the keyboard.

Smart Technology

There are a couple of ‘Smart’ features on-board the M-Audio Oxygen Pro keyboards that will improve your performance and make recording easier. The Smart Chord feature allows you to play full chords with just one finger. You strike the key of the root note and Smart Chord will take care of the rest. What kind of chord you want to be played is completely controllable too - major, minor, 7th etc. You can even assign your own chord structure. There’s also Smart Scale which means you can’t put a note wrong! Select what sort of scale you’re playing in, and the keyboard will only let you play the notes within that scale; no others.  

On top of the Smart features, the M-Audio Oxygen Pro also has an easy-to-access arpeggiator with various modes, and a Note Repeat feature that you can use with the pads to help create rhythms.
