You can edit and manipulate virtual instruments, effect plugins, DAW control/faders (and more) with the x8 knobs & buttons and x9 faders, all of which are fully assignable to your own preferences. M-Audio has also created presets for auto-mapped DAW buttons, controls & plugin parameters, making the Pro 49 ready to use from the off. You can also get creative with the intuitive Arpeggiator with Type, Octave, Gate and Swing control too.

This means you can spend less time hitting playing technique-based roadblocks and more time creating amazing music.
The M-Audio Oxygen Pro 49 seamlessly integrates with any studio or live setup, as the Pro 49 has USB-MIDI connection and 5-pin MIDI Output for controlling external MIDI gear. You use any of the onboard parameters, pads or keys to control anything that is MIDI compatible.
