3.0 out of 5 stars Good for desktop use, 13 July 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: M-Audio Oxygen 25 - 3rd Generation MIDI Controller (Electronics)
It's hard to decide on a star rating for this - do I rate it for what it is, or do I rate it in terms of usefulness and usability? I'm opting for the latter. I bought this to use as a desktop solution for my Logic experiments, as my larger 49 key Keystation is a bit unwieldy in my living room where I work, so I've opted to set it aside (unless I really need it) and use a smaller desktop keyboard instead, and chose this. It's nice because it sits comfortably next to my Macbook within easy reach - so no more turning in my chair to the Keystation that I used to pop on my drum stool next to my table. I did find the initial setup a little confusing, largely due to the lack of any useful documentation accompanying the product. However, a visit to the M-Audio website fixed this as they offer a PDF download of the manual there - what took me the longest to discover is that you need to set the keyboard to preset 10 to use all the functions in Logic (once you've downloaded the DirectLink driver for it). Now it's working well with all the knobs and the fader doing what they should. I do feel that the keyboard's keys are a little too light and that for the price, perhaps they could have thrown in a few more features but for a basic desktop solution, this is a decent option.
