M-Audio Oxygen Pro – Firmware Update

The process to update the M-Audio Oxygen Pro firmware is really straight forward.

Simply download the firmware from the M-Audio website.

IMPORTANT – Backup Custom Oxygen Pro Presets BEFORE updating the Oxygen Pro firmware!

Make sure to follow the READ ME .PDF instructions in the firmware download. I will not be liable for any damages to your Oxygen Pro 🙂.

Turn off the Oxygen Pro, then hold down SHIFT, BANK <, and BANK > on the Oxygen Pro MIDI Keyboard. You’ll see an “Oxygen Series Updating” mode on the Oxygen Pro’s screen!

Launch the Oxygen Pro Firmware Update.exe, then load the Oxygen Pro.DAT file into it, press “Update”, and wait for completion.

As mentioned my video above, my update froze.. so I closed the “Oxygen Pro Firmware Update” and tried again.. it then worked well for me.

Power off your Oxygen Pro.

Then continue to press and hold Octave – and + buttons while turning the Oxygen Pro back on.

Your Oxygen Pro will now be at its factory reset state with the new firmware, so you can now load in your Custom Oxygen Pro Presets, like my Oxygen Pro FL Studio Template.

Find Which Version the Oxygen Pro is On?

At the moment, I can’t find a way to see what version my Oxygen Pro is running! I’ve tried all settings on the M-Audio Oxygen Pro (Review), and the M-Audio Oxygen Pro Preset Editor.

The only way to tell from my testing is when actually updating the Oxygen Pro through it’s firmware updater. If you’re up to date, it’d say that you’re already on the latest version.

  1. Hey GratuiTous,

    Thanks for providing such great resources for using the M-Audio Oxygen Pro. I know it hasn’t been that long since the firmware update was released but can you mention any of the changes/features that you’ve come across since installing it?

    Also I’ve seen you mention elsewhere that the sliders adjust numbers randomly unless you have them in a specific location, are you talking about it affecting the parameters that they are linked to?

    1. Hi Gslanova! – Thanks for the comment!

      I have experienced no difference in the firmware at all. Just provided this quick update video for how to update the M-Audio Oxygen Pro firmware.

      The Pitch Wheel was causing issues for some people on initial release, but the previous firmware seemed to fix this if you increase the pitch range in FL Studio (see Fix Pitch Wheel and Mod Wheel).

      My Oxygen Pro has a couple sliders which randomly change numbers if I don’t leave them in a specific place. What this means is if the slider were assigned to a parameter, it would adjust that parameter. Others have reported a similar issue.. this is only for a few people (like mine) it seems. Sadly my warranty is over 🙁 .. But I will say it does not effect my workflow at all, as I rarely use the knobs/sliders, and if I do, I set them up in such a way that thankfully this does not effect my hands-on mixing in FL Studio.

      I will be doing an updated M-Audio Oxygen Pro Review here shortly.

  2. Also I forgot to ask in my previous post about Midi clock issues with the M-AUDIO Oxygen Pro. Have you experienced any issues regarding this yourself?

    1. I cannot answer this question for you as I do not use synthesizers or outboard gear.

      I strictly just use FL Studio, Virtual Instruments, and a MIDI Keyboard to make beats.

      What I can say, though, is in FL Studio, you need to set the TEMPO SYNC to “EXTERNAL”, otherwise the Transport Buttons do not work well, and are intermittent. My 5-Part Oxygen Pro Series shows how to properly setup the Oxygen Pro in FL Studio.

      This is what I look for regarding How to Buy a MIDI Keyboard in FL Studio.
