Product Description

The popular Oxygen 61 is a USB MIDI controller featuring eight assignable knobs, nine assignable sliders, plus dedicated transport and track select buttons. The so-named DirectLink mode automatically maps these controls to common DAW transport, mixer, track pan and plug-in parameter functions. Applications whose functionality can automatically be accessed include Ableton Live 8.0.9 and later, GarageBand '08 & '09, Apple Logic Pro 8, Apple Logic Express 8, Pro Tools M-Powered 8.0 and higher, Pro Tools LE 8.0 and higher, Propellerhead Reason 4 and Steinberg Cubase 5. There are also built-in factory presets that offer support for popular virtual instruments right out of the box, with no complex setup required.

The Oxygen’s sleek and compact design delivers five octaves worth of full size, velocity-sensitive keys, making makes it both portable enough for mobile composing without sacrificing production and performance opportunities afforded by using a controller with a full length keyboard.
