Checked out the M-Audio Oxygen 61 at Guitar Center. It's on sale. . .only $130. . . that's sick! The guy at the store said that M-Audio is supposed to be releasing a newer version of the Oxygen 61.

For that price bag it. There is always something else coming out "soon" so you will be waiting forever if you listen/read to all of the hype.
Agree with Pancenter, I find the pads on keyboards don't have the accuracy and maybe ok for firing off one shot samples. I use built-in midi files with Toontracks Superior drummer and just edited them in piano roll or using the keys.
That's why I eventually bought Maschine as it's a great for a drum machine and it also doubles up as a control surface for Logic in midi mode.
Now go and make some music
