Logic Pro 8 M-Audio Oxygen 8


i ordered one of these for cheap off ebay, i can tell theyre a very popular controller

mine isn't the v2 with the transport buttons it's an old one and still called MIDIMAN rather than M-Audio

well i found the drivers on the M-audio website, downloaded for 10.5.7 which im running obviously - restarted... and it doesn't seem to be registering in logic

there's no midi activity on the transport panel, like note on/off or anything... and since it's a USB - there's no system preference option either (even tho there is for my M-audio fast track pro interface)

im worried it hasn't installed properly, if at all

anyone encountered this before?

(i promise, after i get this sorted i will be quiet posting problems all the time - im a logic beginner!)

MIDIMAN USB Controller

First thing you want to do is check to see if the Controller is being seen by the Mac OS, you do this by launching the Audio MIDI Setup (AMS)

You should then see a window that looks like this:

If you don't see your USB device there, that means that there is something not compatible with the M-Audio Driver and that device or the OS. If AMS does not see your controller, Logic won't either.


there is another problem... i had it working yesterday, and ive turned on my macbook pro today and it wasn't registering in logic again,

so i went to that Audio MIDI set up - and the keystation is there but it's greyed out!!!

im really struggling here :(


an important lesson learned

M-Audio oxygen 8's do not work with USB hubs... they only work when plugged directly into the machine!

maybe this goes for other USB devices

Oxygen 8v2

I have recently updated to Maverick

Plugged in my Oxygen 8v2 in and is detected in AMS, but no activity in Logic X
Is it a plug and play device? Its in a USB input in iMac, but no activity in Logic.

Does it need drivers? Some places say its outdated and drivers are not available for Maverick, others say its just a plug and play keyboard

Whats the crack? Any info is much appreciated
