Okay I got you – I’m sure the Oxygen Pro series may have something similar, as they are both built by M-Audio..
Once I get acquainted with it, I can show you some things..
However, sometimes just because a feature is there, doesn’t mean you need it.. which is why I try to tell you guys often, you need to find how you work, and the tools you need for that work, and it will give you a lot of ease when it comes to music creation.
What I’m trying to say is sometimes features are awesome, and help you, but sometimes they are just a “feature” which just adds more money to your product, which you’ll never use!
Finally.. lol – FL Studio isn’t the best with features on MIDI Keyboards.. what I mean by that, is FL Studio is amazing for making beats, and if you have a good MIDI Keyboard, you’ll have a good experience with FL Studio..
But many times these features either don’t work inside FL Studio, or there’s still some type of manual set up involved..
Other DAWs like Ableton/Logic/Pro Tools many times integrate really well with these MIDI Keyboards, and allow you to have your knobs automatically mapped out for you etc..
Inside FL Studio, you can map things out, but again, manually..
At the end of the day, a mouse and keyboard is the best way to do things in FL Studio, and a nice MIDI Keyboard simply for playing the keys has been my best experience and mindset (from trying to figure out a “hands-on” approach over the years..)
