Midiman Oxygen 8 (v1)

Hi there, I had a question I was wondering if anyone could answer. Will the Oxygen 8 v1 work with Windows 10? I understand that it is not class compliant in addition to being rather old, and that it requires drivers, but I was wondering if I could get it to work. Thanks in advance.

  • Hey Christopher,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Oxygen8 is a legacy product and does have limited support. The last Windows operating system that supported this controller was Windows 7. Users have had success with operating systems later than Windows 7 from using the last available drive but the controller is not officially supported past 7.

    You can download the last driver here:

    M-Audio Oxygen8 Driver - Windows

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  • Hi Christopher

    The answer to yor Question is "yes", it runs under Win 10 64bit. Works fine here, installed it just yesterday, during my search for driver I found your question.

    Go to M-Audio "Support" "Driver&Update" Section, choose:
    Series: Legacy
    Product: Oxygen 8
    OS: Windows Vista (64-bit) SP2
    Click on "Show results", Site now will show two files, the "Legacy Keyboard 5.0.0" is the one you need (the other may as well, but didn't try, the first file worked well).
    Install that driver, connect your Oxygen 8 to computer and play music, have fun...

    here you'll find a manual:

  • I’m thankful
    Hi Bandit. Thanks for your post. I had the very same question and was just starting to research the issue - yours was my first search!
    You don't happen to have a working version of the Delta 1010 on your Windows 10, do you? I have a few legacy products from M-audio that I need to migrate to my new computer. Would prefer not to lay out more hard earned cash.
    Cheers,
    Bruce

  • Hi Bruce. Sorry, but the Oxygen Keyboard was the only device I had problems to integrate into Win 10, but just I wanted to use USB connect on Notebook. My other old divices like my old Terratec Keyboard runs poperly connected to MIDI over my audio interface. I use 2 Terratec DMX 6 Fire parallel in Win 10 to have 12 Audiochannels and a MIDI Bus (Terratec made a WIN 10 drver for that old divice, because they still sell it). Thanks to the very low latency of the audio interfaces and USB my old keybord, witch has only MIDI out, reacts via MIDI with no detectable delay, same as old Oxygen now does via USB or MIDI here. I was happy to find a solution, normaly I'm used to get pissed with 15 year old hardware, so happend with my formaly high end 2 audiocards from Steinberg, which where incredible parts, they forgott, that they ever made it, and in times after WIN XP they made my investment and trust in their product obsolete
    Cheers,
