M-AUDIO INTRODUCES THE NEW OXYGEN SERIES
M-Audio, synonymous with innovative music production
technology, today announced the introduction of a new keyboard controller series, the Oxygen Series (MKV).

These new keyboard controllers offer innovative advancements in hardware control enabling producers and performers the ability to create their own cutting-edge signature sounds on stage or in the studio.

Available in 25-key, 49-key, and 61-key, the new Oxygen Series (MKV) are USB powered and all feature Smart Chord and
Smart Scale technology, Auto-mapping, a built-in Arpeggiator and Note Repeat, offering powerful features for modern
music production. The Oxygen Series (MKV) keyboard controllers feature eight backlit velocity-sensitive pads, nine
assignable faders (one assignable fader on the Oxygen 25), eight assignable knobs, and full Velocity Control of keys and
pads to open worlds of precise music creation.

Smart Controls


The Oxygen Series (MKV) include Smart Chord and Smart Scale technology. The Smart Chord feature plays full
chords with a single key press, while the Smart Scale feature plays the exact notes within a chosen scale eliminating
wrong notes. Both features offer more options with a Custom Mode and over 15 different scale variations. With Smart
Chord and Smart Scale technology, making music and unleashing your unlimited creativity has never been easier.

Auto-Mapping for Creative DAW Control


Using the Oxygen Series (MKV) controller with any DAW is incredibly easy. Controls such as Transport, Faders, Pan,
Record Arm, Solo, Mute, Select and many more are automatically mapped for a fluid workflow with all major DAWs—
including Ableton, Pro Tools, MPC Beats, Cubase, Logic, Studio One and more. By simply selecting your DAW on the
Oxygen Series (MKV) keyboard controller and configuring your DAW’s preferences to the keyboard, a new world of
creative production is at your fingertips.

Built-in Arpeggiator


The built-in Arpeggiator on the Oxygen Series (MKV) helps add excitement and movement to music quickly and easily.
When the Arpeggiator is activated, the keyboard will repeatedly play the keys that are pressed in the selected sequence either in the keyboard’s tempo or the DAW’s tempo setting. This powerful tool can operate in Latch or Momentary Mode and further utilises creative parameters such as Type, Octave, Gate, and Swing - offering a wide array of experimental possibilities.

Premium Software Suite and Learning Tools


The Oxygen Series (MKV) includes everything for immediate creative potential from the get-go. Record, sequence,
arrange and mixdown tracks with a choice of two professional DAWs including MPC Beats and Ableton Live Lite.
Additionally, included are two critically acclaimed virtual instruments; Hybrid 3 multi-oscillator synthesiser, and Mini
