M Audio USB MIDI Controllers
The mobile keyboard controller revolution began with M-Audio's release of the Oxygen8 - and the rest is history. Now there's a mobile controller to fit every size and budget need. The M-Audio Ozone even has a built-in audio interface.
Controls in M-Audio keyboards aren't buried mysteriously in obscure menus. The keys have a second layer of functions, allowing you to program MIDI control information directly from the black and whites. Here's how it works:
- Press the MIDI/Select button.
- Press keyboard note whose label corresponds to the parameter you wish to change.
- Use the Data Entry slider to select the value or enter numeric values by pressing the keys labeled with numbers.
