M-Audio Oxygen 49 V3
Product Description for the M-Audio Oxygen 49 V3
The Oxygen 49 USB MIDI controller delivers next-generation functionality from M-Audio®, the leading innovator in mobile music production technology. Oxygen 49 features eight assignable knobs and nine assignable sliders, plus dedicated transport and track select buttons. DirectLink mode automatically maps these controls to common DAW functions* including transport, mixer, track pan and plug-in parameters. Built-in factory presets offer support for popular virtual instruments right out of the box—no complicated setup required. Velocity-sensitive keys and a sleek, compact design round out a portable keyboard that’s perfect for both production and performance. No other MIDI controller in this price range has so much functionality while remaining easy to use.
Streamlined Session Control
Featuring eight assignable knobs, nine assignable sliders, dedicated transport controls and track up/down buttons, Oxygen 49 gives you total control over your session—allowing you to stay engaged in the creative flow of recording and mixing music rather than being interrupted by the constant back and forth between QWERTY keyboard and MIDI controller. DirectLink mode automatically maps Oxygen 49 controls to common DAW parameters*—while factory presets provide instant mapping to popular virtual instruments including Xpand!™2, Hybrid™, Velvet®, Strike®, Oddity, ImpOSCar and MiniMonsta. Use the dedicated Select buttons to quickly switch MIDI channels and presets for deep tactile control over multitimbral hardware and software instruments. Interfacing a MIDI controller with your software doesn’t get any easier than this.
M-Audio pioneered the category of mobile MIDI keyboard controllers, and we continue to be the best-selling name in the game. In fact, M-Audio controllers are used by more professional producers and players than any other brand on the market. Thanks to continued innovation over the course of nearly a decade, you’ll find that the Oxygen 49 controller has a solid, reliable build—and puts as much musicality into the keyboard as it does into the complement of other MIDI controls.

The Oxygen 49 MIDI controller offers out-of-the-box integration with Pro Tools® software—the industry standard DAW found in professional, project and personal studios around the world. With DirectLink, the Oxygen 49 controls instantly map to key parameters in the Pro Tools Mixer, Edit and Transport windows—as well as the powerful suite of virtual instruments bundled with Pro Tools.
