Get Your Hands on Instruments, Plug-ins, and More!Everyone into recording needs a MIDI keyboard controller, that's fact. And lucky for you, you can get more than just keyboard control at an awesome low price. Check out the M-Audio Oxygen 49. With 49 keys, you'll be able to play all sorts of virtual instruments - that's even enough keys to play piano sounds, for sure. And if you're really getting into music production, recording, and all-around software tinkering (and who isn't, it's fun!!), well the Oxygen 49 has eight MIDI-assignable knobs and nine MIDI-assignable sliders... not to mention CD-player-style buttons to stop/start playback and recording in your software of choice. Speaking of which, you get a free download of Avid Ignite music creation software.
If you're into playing synth-driven stuff and piano-style virtual instruments, you'll appreciate the input for a sustain pedal. You can get more expressive that way. And depending on the way you like to play, you can adjust the Oxygen 49's response to better suit your playing style.
So anyway. You see it, you get it. This one's cool. And what's also cool is that it's compatible with both Mac and PC computers, and it's going to work with whatever major DAW you use - Pro Tools, Logic, Live, Reason, Cubase... all of 'em. So start taking charge of your virtual instruments and start getting your hands on your plug-ins... get yourself the M-Audio Oxygen 49!
