Oxygen 8 (v1) setup in cubase le ai elements 10

Trying to find a dummy guide for setting up oxygen 8 in cubase. This is the old oxygen 8 (mk1 i think) running with legacy driver on windows 10. I have had it working as a midi input device using just the midi out into midi in on my lexicon lambda audio interface, but would like to get it set up so that I can use the pots etc. Not sure if I need to connect the other midi port to something byt am confused as that is midi out too. Also wondering if the usb port is purely an alternative to wall wart or if that needs to be connected for full functionality.
I recently upgraded my pc and software and need to reinstall it so Im looking for a comprehensive guide. I have the manual but im struggling to understand parts of it. I have gone into remote devices and set up a generic device but when I click learn, there is nothing registering when I move the pots etc.

  • Hey Joel,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Oxygen 8 is a legacy product with limited available support. The last available driver for this controller provided support for machines running the Windows 7 OS but will not provide connectivity for Windows 10. Keep in mind this is all relative to USB connectivity.

    I see that in your post you have also connected the Oxygen's MIDI output to the MIDI input on your interface which should be passing along all MIDI data including note data from the keys and MIDI CC data from the knobs. If you are connecting an external MIDI controller to an interface, be sure to select the interface as the MIDI input device as it will be handling the data transfer from the external device.

    Let's test the MIDI output of the Oxygen with a MIDI monitor. A MIDI monitor will show you all the incoming data from any MIDI controllers or MIDI interfaces that you have connected to your computer.

    For testing MIDI devices on PC:
    Download MIDI-OX

    This video will get you set up quickly for MIDI input monitoring in MIDI-OX:

    For testing MIDI devices on Mac:
    Download snoize: MIDI Monitor

    Select the Lexicon interface as a MIDI input source in the monitor and send some data with the Oxygen's keys and controllers - do you see MIDI data appear?

    Let me know!
