Can't use my M-Audio Oxygen 25... :-(

If I install and use the drivers from M-Audio and turn DirectLink on in Cubase 7, I can only use it as a Remote Controller.

Is this by design or am I doing something wrong here?

I’ve followed the instructions in the readme for the DirectLink driver, but when I choose it as a MIDI input for a track, I can see the meters popping, but it doesn’t record any MIDI!

So, now I could saved some money on a plain MIDI keyboard without the knobs and buttons, because I do want to use it as both a keyboard and a Controller!

Any ideas?

I must say, I use Mac OS X 10.8 and the DirectLink driver for Cubase is for 10.6 and for Cubase 6, and I’m using Cubase 7…

BUT! There are no new drivers, so I thought maybe they where compatible…
If it is the driver, Steinberg: Please push M-Audio to release new drivers, or make an update that makes the current DirectLink drivers work!

This affects both the Oxygen and Axiom series so it has to be a priority…


Was this ever resolved? I have the same issue.
