The Samson Graphite 49 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller is a versatile and powerful controller that is perfect for both production and performance. With 49 semi-weighted keys, the keyboard provides a realistic instrument-like feel for expressive and responsive performances. The controller also features four velocity-sensitive trigger pads, ideal for triggering drums and one-shot samples, with aftertouch for customisable control over a variety of effects and parameters.
With a vast selection of programmable controls, including nine faders, eight encoders, and sixteen buttons, the Graphite 49 offers total control of your DAW and virtual instruments. The large LCD display allows you to see and adjust every function of your keyboard in real-time, and with a range of presets for popular DAWs, you can be up and running in no time.
The Graphite 49 also allows for endless creative options, with the ability to split the keyboard into four separate zones, assign different instruments to different zones, and control up to four unique voices simultaneously. The pads also feature aftertouch and can be assigned to fit your needs, perfect for drums, one-shot samples, and even start and stop sequences.
Designed for portability, the Graphite 49 boasts a compact and slimline body, making it perfect for performers on-the-go. The angled top panel allows for easy navigation and adjustment of keyboard parameters in any environment. The controller can be powered via USB or an iPad using Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning-to-USB Camera Adapter.
The Samson Graphite 49 comes bundled with Native Instruments Komplete Elements 8, providing you with over 3GB of samples, more than 1,000 premium sounds, and three powerful NI player engines for production, composition, and sound design.
