Good! Perfect for producing and moderate live use! When I ordered this, I wasn’t sure if it would be the right controller. I already have an axiom 61 and am very pleased with that. Now wanting also something smaller (25 keys) and inexpensive (and more mobile) I thought I’d stick with m-audio.Size was very important to me. It’s always hard to tell on pictures how big something actually is.. But it’s smaller and more compact than I thought. The build quality is also very very good.. just like the axiom 61. I even prefer the knobs on the oxygen 25 because they turn smoothly (like on a dj mixer) and not like on the axiom where they click.I was thinking about getting the akai pro lpk25 because that seems to be really good for mobile use. Already tried out the korg nanokey which is in my opinion a joke. Akai pro doesn’t have full size keys either so I went for the oxygen 25. Of course the oxygen can’t compete with the akai/korg size-wise but it’s still really compact. It’ll fit in a normal sized backpack, no problem.So overall it’s a great midi controller. For at home or on the go. I assume it would be pretty awesome for live use/djing as well.One thing extra I would have liked would be one or two more faders… But you can’t have everything : )Edit 15.3.11:I’ve used this at a couple of live shows, djing using ableton. It works great! Of course more knobs and faders would be preferable (and of course you can’t compare it with 2cdjs/mixer) but if you’re on the go and need a small but effective keyboard this is it. Plug it in, map it with ableton and you’re ready to go.Then again I use it mainly for producing. And for that purpose it’s more than perfect. For at home it’s not too small and for on the go it’s not too big. Highly recommend!

about the best 25 key midi controller you can get for the price…but you get what you pay for. The oxygen is a good “starter” controller, but if you’re really in need of a 25 key midi controller there are much better (albiet slightly more expensive) options available. The biggest problem I have with this unit is the lack of true Midi ports. It uses USB midi, which is OK for users who are going soft synth only but is really not useable for individuals who need to interface with midi devices other than a lap top. The build quality is fine, it’s not particularly solid but the knobs, wheels, and keys are responsive enough for a device in this price range. If this is all you can afford then it will get the job done. But if you have an extra 100 dollars, I would recommend looking at M-Audio’s AXIOM 25.
