I have an Oxygen 8, and I also had an Miditech <what_was_the_name?>
keyboard that looks a lot like the Oxygen, but doesn't have the USB
part. This Midtech was total junk, IMO, so I brought it back to the
dealer and took the Oxygen instead. I do not use the USB midi, just
the normal midi out of the Oxygen.
I like this keyboard quite well, especially the knobs of course.
Because I'm a sax player, not a keyboarder, I think the the keys are
okay, but they probably feel a bit cheap for someone used to 'real'
keyboards. A friend of mine also has an Oxygen 8 and thinks it's el
cheapo, but overall works fine.
Now I want more buttons and also some sliders, yep ;)
