DescriptionOxygen8 w/Reason 2.5 Software Bundle
The Portable Soft Synth Controller.
Oxygen 8 is a new breed of controller. Designed to meet the needs of today¹s electronic musicians, Oxygen 8 puts you in control of any 8 MIDI-assignable parameters within your favorite software programs. Oxygen 8 is also a USB MIDI interface that speaks directly with your computer without any extra devices. You don¹t need a MIDI interface for this keyboard interface.
The software synth is here to stay, and along with it comes dozens of parameters begging to be tweeked. Until now you¹ve been trapped with only a single mouse to do everything. Oxygen 8 puts your hands on any 8 parameters of your choice in real time.
Oxygen 8 makes it possible for you to get deeper into your software programs, to get more out of them, to experiment and push them to their limits.
Oxygen 8 will give you more freedom on the stage than you¹ve ever had before, dynamically increasing the possibilities available to you.
Instead of taking hours to program drums with a mouse, use Oxygen 8 to play grooves into your program in real time. Use the 8 knobs to manipulate the dynamics, feel, and FX.
Synthesists can use Oxygen 8 to gain access to, and to automate parameters that exist deep within their hardware, making it easier to get more out of them without having to navigate through dozens of menus
Oxygen 8 Features:
• 8 MIDI assignable knobs, one assignable slider.
• Inputs and outputs 16 channels of MIDI to and from your computer using
the power and convenience of your USB port.

Mac OS X Support
Reason 2.0 fully supports the Mac OS of the future.
Full 32-bit sample support
The internal architecture of Reason has always been operating in 32-bit floating point. And in 2.0, Reason can now also handle samples up to 32 bit, with the full bit resolution retained through all processing stages. Bring out your 32-bit soundcards. Scroll through the rack
Windows users with a scroll wheel mouse can enjoy the benefits of the built in scroll wheel support in Reason 2.0, and perform some handy scrolling and editing tricks. LFO Sync To Tempo
Its not just Malström and the NN-XT that feature those tempo-syncable LFO’s. All existing devices in Reason now also have this feature. It’s time to sync your sweeps to your beats.
To allow our new sampler to really flex its muscles, Reason 2.0 comes with an extensive orchestral library, created exclusively for the NN-XT.
Recorded in prestigious Atlantic Studios in Stockholm, these sample patches feature live, classically trained musicians who have been told to get into the groove. Because more than anything else, this is a sample library for you Reason users, and designed to blend in with the sounds from Reason’s other devices.
These slick samples will sound magical on everything from your Drum’n’Bass to your next film score, and fit like a glove on your Hip Hop and R’n’B. The Orkester NN-XT Sound Library spans from single woodwinds to complete string sections, and covers all essential playing styles. Add some percussion and tremolo strings to that and you have a library that will last you a lifetime.
Reason comes in the shape of a classic studio rack, packed with all the gear you will ever need. Samplers, Analog synths, mixers, Step time drum machines, Effects and a real-time multi-track sequencer are included for fast and intuitive music making.
