Squishy Buttons vs. Clicky Buttons on a MIDI Keyboard

M-Audio Oxygen Pro 49 - STRAIGHT ON

In this article, I want to talk about clicky and squishy buttons, as I recently reviewed the M-Audio Oxygen Pro MIDI Keyboard that has clicky buttons, and it’s important to understand the differences.

If you are interested in buying the Oxygen Pro MIDI Keyboard by M-Audio, please view my useful resources:

When buying a MIDI Keyboard, I’ve experienced both clicky and squishy buttons.

Squishy buttons are nice because they are quiet, soft, but require a bit of “force” to work! Over time, the “force” of pushing on squishy buttons becomes its failing point.. which I’ve experienced first hand!

Clicky buttons on a MIDI Keyboard I have really started to like, which I first experienced on my new M-Audio Oxygen Pro 49 MIDI Keyboard. Clicky buttons are a bit louder than I’d like, but require VERY LITTLE force to press, and YOU KNOW the button worked when you hear the “click”.

If you treat clicky buttons with care, I’m sure they would last forever!

Here’s a short video from my full M-Audio Oxygen Pro Review:
