Oxygen (MKIII) Series DirectLink

DirectLink Mode on the Oxygen (MKIII) Series is an exclusive technology found in M-Audio keyboards. Simply put, DirectLink automatically maps the keyboard’s various faders, knobs, and transport buttons to software controls in DirectLink-compatible DAWs, providing intuitive, hands-on control over your sessions.

With the Oxygen (MKIII) series, DirectLink gives you easy hands-on control over your mix without any user configuration.

  • Knobs are automatically mapped to pan controls
  • Transport buttons map to your DAW transport
  • Sliders (49-, 61-, and 88-key models) map to your DAW mixer faders
