M-audio oxygen 25 no sound or volume

I just purchased a new M-audio oxygen 25 and I can't figure out how to activate the sound of turn on any volume, so when I press a key it is completely mute

  • Hey Viv,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Oxygen 25 is a MIDI controller and does not have any internal voices of its own. What this keyboard does do is send MIDI control data to virtual instruments that you have hosted on your computer. By using the Oxygen to control virtual instruments, you can play just about any instrument you want including key instruments like pianos and synthesizers, as well as instruments like guitars, wind instruments, drums, and beyond.

    The Oxygen comes with two software instruments to get you started with making music - Xpand!2 and Twist. You will host these instruments inside a software called Ableton Live. This knowledge base article will walk you through the setup process and get you on the right track:

    If you are up for a little bit of homework, learning more about how MIDI works will help you understand what you're getting into much more clearly. This website is a fantastic resource to learn more about the ins and outs and in betweens of MIDI:
