M-Audio Oxygen Pro REVIEW

The M-Audio Oxygen Pro is the best MIDI Keyboard for FL Studio that I’ve used in my 12+ years of beating with FL Studio.  Being an FL Studio Trainer, students often ask, “What’s MIDI Keyboard is Best for FL Studio”.. and I tell them I’m getting a great experience with the M-Audio Oxygen Pro.  (Read my M-Audio Oxygen Pro Review):

Best M-Audio Oxygen Pro Features:

FREE M-Audio Oxygen Pro MIDI Script for FL Studio

My FREE M-Audio Oxygen Pro FL Studio MIDI Script  sets up the transport buttons for a normal FL Studio workflow (PLAY, STOP, RECORD, FORWARD, BACK, LOOP).

The Oxygen Pro’s LOOP button out of the box did not switch between Song and Pattern Mode in FL Studio, so this simple MIDI Script sets the transport buttons working normally.

M-Audio Oxygen Pro Template:

Now that the transport buttons are fixed with my free MIDI Script, the Oxygen Pro was intermittent in FL Studio.  The answer to fix this is to set TEMPO SYNC to External and always be in PRESET MODE on the MIDI Keyboard.

If you’re new, my¬†Premium M-Audio Oxygen Pro Template¬†sets this up for you, with some more benefits (and now v2 gives a super cool workflow off the drum pads).

M-Audio Oxygen Pro Setup
(FL Studio Quick Start Guide):

Here’s some videos for¬†How to setup M-Audio Oxygen Pro in FL Studio.

First, you need to install my¬†FREE Oxygen Pro MIDI Script¬†to get the transport buttons working normally (PLAY, STOP, RECORD, FORWARD, BACK, LOOP).¬† It’s free to download, is easy to install, and only needs to be done once!

Second, my Oxygen Pro TEMPLATE fixes the bugs I encountered during setup.  You do not need it, you just need to set tempo sync to external, but if new, my template does this for you, plus sets up organized drum pad colors, and now v2 of my Oxygen Pro template gives a REALLY COOL drum pad workflow in FL Studio.

M-Audio Oxygen Pro Bugs (or Bad Reviews)

At first, the M-Audio Oxygen Pro was quite buggy in FL Studio.. This lead to a lot of bad reviews of the M-Audio Oxygen Pro (especially for other DAWs than FL Studio).

But I figured out the bugs.. they were:

  • Transport Buttons Intermittent (Sometimes Worked)
  • M-Audio Oxygen Pro Pitch Wheel Not Working


Fix Oxygen Pro Transport Buttons in FL Studio:

The Transport Buttons are fixed by setting TEMPO SYNC to EXTERNAL!

You also want to use my FREE Oxygen Pro MIDI Script to setup the Transport Buttons for normal usage (getting the LOOP Button to change Song/Pattern Mode).

Fix Oxygen Pro Pitch Wheel

Here’s the¬†M-Audio Oxygen Pro Pitch Wheel Fix¬†in FL Studio:

Is the M-Audio Oxygen Pro the BEST MIDI Keyboard for FL Studio?

First understand that a cheap and expensive MIDI Keyboard are the exact same!

Companies trick new producers into thinking if they pay more for a MIDI Keyboard it will make them a better beatmaker.. FALSE!  This is because a MIDI Keyboard has no sounds in it.. your MIDI Keyboard always plays the sounds in your computer (no matter the price).. that’s why a $100 vs. $2000 MIDI Keyboard is the same thing!

What’s the difference between expensive MIDI Keyboards?

It’s their build quality and additional features like knobs, sliders, and drum pads.

The M-Audio Oxygen Pro is a great MIDI Keyboard for FL Studio because its good build quality, semi-weighted keys, and TONS of KNOBS, SLIDERS, and DRUM PADS.


In addition to the FREE MIDI Script, my M-Audio Oxygen Pro Premium User Preset gives an amazing FL Studio HANDS-ON workflow.
