I created this simple microtrack while demonstrating how to use the M-Audio Oxygen 25 controller with Reason 5 for my audio production class. There’s a heavy dose of Curtis Mayfield in this and no artistic merit on my part, but it was fun to see the reaction from my students as I created the track in a matter of minutes. If only I got a commission from Propellerheads for all the new Reason users I churn out of my classes (wink). During the demo I illustrated how to use the O25 to play instruments sounds, remap controls, and apply automation.
