Today we cover how to use the M-Audio Oxygen Pro Preset Editor and setup the Oxygen Pro in FL Studio. (This applies to the Oxygen Pro Mini, 25-Key, 49-Key, 61-Key, and 88-Key!)
Start with my M-Audio Oxygen Pro Resource Page !
First, my M-Audio Oxygen Pro Review shows proper FL Studio installation with my FREE Oxygen Pro MIDI Script.
There’s also my Premium Oxygen Pro Template.. so you don’t have to figure it out, you literally just install a quick file into this Preset Editor, and I set it all up for you in FL Studio.
Where to Find M-Audio Oxygen Pro Preset Editor
There’s two ways to download the M-Audio Oxygen Pro Preset Editor.
- Log into your account and download the M-Audio Software Manager (the best way)
- Download Oxygen Pro Preset Editor from M-Audio’s Drivers Page
I’ll be sharing the M-Audio Software Manager approach in this article. (It allows you to also install the oxygen pro firmware, too).
Go to the M-Audio website, and under “Account” -> “Sign In“, you will see once logged in, “Account” -> “My Products” will be available, which shows your product serial numbers and various product resource downloads.
Once you download and install the Preset Editor, it will look like this:
How to Use M-Audio Oxygen Pro Preset Editor
Notice the Preset, DAW, and Global options at the top of the Oxygen Pro Preset Editor. (Additionally, File in the top left you’ll use a lot!)
I cannot speak for other DAWs, as I only use FL Studio.. so from here on out, if you use FL Studio, this will help you most.. Again.. my Premium Oxygen Pro Template for FL Studio will get you all set up.
In FL Studio, I found Preset gave me the best experience. (DAW I found the knobs to not work properly.)
The best way to use the Oxygen Pro Preset Editor is to retrieve a preset from the Oxygen Pro first, modify it to how you want, then send that preset back into the Oxygen Pro.
To repeat, just load a Preset from the Oxygen Pro MIDI Keyboard into the Preset Editor. Under File you can select Retrieve Preset.
Selecting RAM pulls in the currently selected preset on the Oxygen Pro itself.. if you select Preset 1 or 2, that is one of the saved presets on the Oxygen Pro which you can also recall.
You can access the M-Audio Oxygen Pro Presets by holding PRESET, then using “Push to Enter” knob to scroll through them.
From here, now you can fine-tune the preset however you’d like, but make sure you SEND the preset back into the Oxygen Pro over a preset, as sending it to RAM is just temporary as the keyboard is on (good for testing).
I suggest SAVING your preset as a backup!!
When sending a preset into the Oxygen Pro from the Preset Editor, you have to the option of overwriting a pre-existing preset (I personally overwrite the first one so it is convenient to select it).
And that’s it!
This Preset Editor took quite awhile to figure out setup the M-Audio Oxygen Pro in FL Studio.. That’s why I decided to create that Premium Oxygen Pro Template for FL Studio..
Since writing this article and doing my M-Audio Oxygen Pro Review, I’ve created tons of valuable Oxygen Pro resources:
M-Audio Oxygen Pro Resources:
Start with my M-Audio Oxygen Pro Page which includes:
- FREE M-Audio Oxygen Pro MIDI Script
- Premium M-Audio Oxygen Pro Template
- M-Audio Oxygen Pro Template Changelog
- M-Audio Oxygen Pro Drum Pad Layout
Use this link to see Oxygen Pro Template Updates.
Do you need the premium template? No, but if “just want the keyboard to work”, then it’s the easiest solution. (V2 now offers a really cool drum pad workflow in FL Studio.. V1 also included if you just want normal oxygen pro operation, but want it set up easy).
