The Oxygen Pro 25 features 16 velocity-sensitive backlit RGB pads with Note Repeat for beat production and finger drumming. With eight assignable knobs, an assignable fader, and a slew of buttons, it’s easy to control virtual instruments, plug-ins, and DAW functions. Ergonomically designed pitch and modulation wheels along with a 1/4″ sustain-pedal input provide you with additional control over your music and performance.

Join the Pros

The Oxygen Pro 25 is a 25-key, USB-powered MIDI controller that makes it easier to create the music you want. Oxygen Pro controllers open up worlds of expression and creativity and make bringing your production ideas to life more seamless than ever. Taking feedback from users and artists alike, Oxygen Pro controllers are powerful studio and live performance tools, allowing you to keep your focus on creating music rather than programming your software. It doesn’t matter if you want to create music on the go or in the studio, the M-Audio Oxygen Pro series is perfectly flexible for your workflow.

Seamless DAW and Performance Control with Automapping

It’s simple to use the Oxygen Pro 25 controller with any DAW using automatically mapped controls such as transport, faders, channel controls (record arm, solo, mute, and select), pan controls, and more. Whether you use Ableton, Pro Tools, MPC Beats, Cubase, Logic, Studio One, or any other major DAW, just select your DAW and configuration, and the Oxygen Pro 25’s controls will be completely integrated. Instantly map to all the virtual instruments included with the Oxygen Pro 25 (Velvet, Mini Grand, Vacuum, Boom, DB3-3, and Xpand!2). These world-class Air Music Tech plug-ins can be fully controlled by the Oxygen Pro 25 and used in real time as you create and mix your music.

Smart Controls

With Smart Chord activated, pressing a single key or pad will play a full chord rather than just one note. The key or pad you press will determine the root note in the chord. The rest of the chord’s properties are determined by the settings you choose. Smart Chord also has a Custom Mode, which lets you to determine the chord structure that will be assigned to each key by manually playing it. For example, if you select Custom Mode, and play a B7 chord, every key will then be assigned to play this chord structure. The note of the key you press will serve as the root of the chord, and all of the parameters can be edited right on the Oxygen Pro 25.

The Oxygen Pro 25 features intelligent Smart Scale technology. With Smart Scale, you can set the keybed so that only notes in the selected scale can be played. This allows you to play within a chosen scale without the risk of playing any undesired notes. You can choose from 16 different scale variations when assigning a scale to the keyboard. Smart Scale is easy to activate and deactivate and allows you to set the scale parameters—so you can create.

Pro-Level Producer Features

Built into the Oxygen Pro 25 are features that are essential to creating modern day pop, electronic, hip hop, and dance music. Note Repeat and the built-in Arpeggiator open up a world of precise music production and live sound techniques to make your music sound professional.

Note Repeat allows you to hold down any of the custom-made M-Audio performance pads to hear a repeated rhythmic pattern at a selectable note division. The Note Repeat feature can be activated momentarily or used in Latch mode. If you choose Momentary, holding the Note Repeat button will make the note played automatically repeat. If you choose Latch, pressing any pad will cause its assigned note to repeat after you release the Note Repeat button. Press the Note Repeat button again to stop it.

The built-in Arpeggiator will affect anything you are playing on the keys, in any virtual instrument in your DAW. When the Arpeggiator is activated, the keyboard will repeatedly play the pressed keys in sequence. The arpeggiator’s timing and rhythm is based on the keyboard’s time division setting and either the keyboard’s or your DAW’s tempo setting. Each note in the arpeggio will be the length you’ve selected for the time division setting. For example, if you select 1/4, each note in the arpeggio will be a quarter note. This powerful tool can operate in Latch or Momentary mode, making it easy to unleash your creativity.

Next-Gen Playability

With great feel in a lightweight chassis, the Oxygen Pro 25 controller provides a new level of creative inspiration. The M-Audio PrecisionTouch keybed adds professional semi-weighted action with advanced high-speed keybed scanning technology for an ultra-expressive playing experience.

This custom keybed also features Channel Aftertouch, giving you added expression and control. Channel Aftertouch enables you to affect the sound of a virtual instrument plug-in by continuously scanning how much pressure you apply to any key after pressing it. This makes creating the mood, dynamics, and emotion you want to deliver in your music—natural and fast.
