Summary: The M-Audio Oxygen 61 is an amazing USB/midi controller for the price. I was originally using a Roland A-800Pro 61 key controller until a recent "slightly too energetic" live performance caused me to crack the casing and subsequently the circuit board inside, laying it to waste.
Summary: So just picked up the Oxygen 61. sleek, keys feel good, lots of sliders and knobs! USB POWER sustain input on/off NOTE this cannot be directly hooked to an amp right out the box. Strictly a MIDI controller, but there are ways to get it going in concert.
Great cheap, full-featured and classy looking keyboard

Summary: I previously had a separate keyboard, a device with knobs and another device with faders. After my old keyboard died, I was looking to consolidate some of the electronics sitting on my desk. Now every control I need comes from one device. I'm mainly using it with Cubase 6 on Windows 7.
Summary: This is a great keyboard for anyone getting into music production or anything of that sort. The keys feel great and the it has lots of features for the price. As far i know its really good with reason and i recommend it to anyone. BUY THIS
Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this product. I wanted a big enough keyboard to play so I could express myself, midi controlled, usb powered, pressure sensitive, good design and feel. I was not disappointed in my purchase of the M-Audio Oxygen 61. It's perfect for me. Setting it up was easy.
Summary: This is really quite a decent controller. Velocity-sensitivity, sliders/knobs and transport controls, pitch-bend and mod wheel and good feeling keys with a 1/4" jack for sustain pedal. Definitely good feature set right off the bat. However, there are a couple things I'm not fond of. 1.
Summary: I have had an earlier (first, probably, though I don't know how to tell for sure) revision of the Oxygen 61 for a year or two, and been very happy with it. So needing another keyboard controller, I bought another Oxygen 61. Big mistake.
Summary: If you're looking for an entry level controller with lots of keys and good functionality with some knobs and sliders, this is the one for you. Although I wish the transport controls worked with Logic 9, at the price it's hard to ask for that.
