I'm seriously considering picking up an Oxygen 49 to use as a MIDI controller. I don't really need the keys since I have another keyboard but just wanting to know if anyone else has one (or the 61) and how good it is at controlling the Garritan libraries. I use the Marching/Concert Band, Big Band Jazz, GPO and Tapspace Virtual Drumline (I know, NOT a Garritan) inside Finale and Sonar.
Does it make it easier to control the VSTs from a hardware controller? I'm mainly looking at the use of the MOD wheel.
I know there are controllers without keys, but they seem to be a LOT more expensive then the Ox49 so I figured I could live with them.
Any ideas? I'm looking to buy within the next week so trying to find out if the Ox49 will work for me.
