Oxygen 49 playing wrong notes in reason 5

I'm hitting C on keyboard, but note played is C#. Using Reason 5, Windows 8 and Oxygen 49 (3rd gen, blue).

  • Hi Miguel,

    Thanks for posting!

    First, test this with a simple MIDI monitoring software. Here are a couple free ones:

    Windows: MIDI-OX

    Open MIDI-OX with all other programs closed. In the Options>MIDI Devices section, select your controller ports from the MIDI Input menu. Click OK.
    Now MIDI-OX will simply list all incoming MIDI messages. This will help confirm if the controller itself is responding properly.


    Mac: MIDI Monitor

    Open MIDI Monitor with all other programs closed. In the "Sources" section, check the boxes for your controller's ports.
    Now MIDI Monitor will list all incoming MIDI Messages. This will help confirm if the controller itself is responding properly.


    Basically, this way you can confirm if it's the Oxygen itself sending the transposed notes or if Reason itself it transposing/filtering the MIDI data.

    If the monitoring software shows that a C is indeed coming in as a C#, first let's do a factory reset. This is covered in the Oxygen (MKIII) Series User Guide. Here are the steps:

    1) Disconnect/power off the Oxygen
    2) Hold down the "+" and "-" buttons together.
    3) While holding + and -, connect/power the Oxygen.
    4) Wait about 5-10 seconds before letting go of the buttons.

    This should reset any transposition changes you've made. Transposing the keyboard is also covered in the User Guide as well.

    I hope this helps!

  • Yessir, think it's reason that is somehow transposing notes, dunno how/why. Thank you for the info, definitely helped out. Glad to know it's not related to my board. I have the user manual and kept trying to reset but I could never tell if it did anything.
