Radium, Oxygen8, Keystation Classic*, Windows Vista & Windows 7 Installation Guide

This guide is a walk through for installing the available driver for Radium, Oxygen8 (not v2), and Keystation Classic* keyboards under Windows Vista and Windows 7. 

* Keystation Classic devices include the Keystation 49 (NOT 49e) and Keystation 61 (NOT 61es)

Do not connect the keyboard to your computer yet!  The driver installer should be run first!

1. Download the latest driver for your device from the M-Audio drivers/updates page and save it to your Desktop.

If this is the first time you are installing a driver for your keyboard on your computer, please skip to step 4 of this guide.

If a driver is currently installed on your system, it will need to be removed before a new driver can be installed.  In this case, launching the installer file will allow you to "Remove" the previous installation.  When first launching the driver file, if a window opens indicating that the publisher cannot be verified, always click "Run"; and if a "User Account Control" window appears, click "Continue". 

2. Click "Next" to Remove the drivers.

3. All driver files are being removed from your computer.  Once this process is complete, you will be informed that the Maintenance (driver removal) is complete.  Click "Finish" to close this application.

4. Double-click the downloaded driver installation file (again), if a "User Account Control" window appears, click "Continue".  The following window will open:

5 . Click "Next".  The License Agreement window will appear (see below):

6. Carefully read the license agreement, then put the radio button next to "I accept the terms of the license agreement", click "Next" to continue and "Install" in the window that opens after this.

If a Windows Security window appears, click "Install".

7. Once this process is complete, you will be informed that M-Audio Series II MIDI has been installed successfully.  Click "Finish".

8. Connect your keyboard to an available USB port on your computer.

IMPORTANT: Connect the keyboard directly to your computer! Do not use a USB hub

9. Shortly after connecting the device, it will display an “Installing device driver software” window.

10. When finished, it will display "Your devices are ready to use".

Your keyboard is now installed and ready to use.  If you get no response when connecting your keyboard, try connecting to different USB ports, and test with a different cable if possible.

Please refer to your software's documentation for instructions on configuring your USB MIDI keyboard for use with the application.
