Samson Graphite 49 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller
Coming equipped with velocity-sensitive keys that accurately capture the dynamics of a performance. The aftertouch offers customizable control over a variety of effects and parameters, for instance the addition of growl to a saxophone or vibrato to strings and with 49 keys, the Graphite 49's pitch range is perfect for performing, whilst remaining highly portable.
Expand the Graphite 49 with ease
The Graphite 49 couldn't be easier to use. Dedicated Transpose and Octave buttons allow you to change the key of any given instrument, as well as expand the keyboard to a full 4-octave range, without needing to use any fiddly sub menus or shift keys. With all of these comprehensive features, as well as classic Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels, the Graphite 49 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.
Samson's Custom Controller
Take full control of your DAW and virtual instruments with the Samson Graphite 49's controller functions. Graphite 49 features 9 faders, 8 encoders and 16 buttons, all customizable for ultimate hands-on control. Not only are they customizable, they can be programmed on-the-fly without the need for editor software. The Graphite 49's large LCD screen displays the behavior of every function in real-time, enabling intuitive mapping with any software you're using.
Room to create
Another way musicians can make the Graphite 49 truly their own is to utilize up to 4 zones on the keyboard for creating splits and layering sounds. This function allows different sounds to be assigned to different sections of keys for a completely personalized setup. With the keyboard divided into sections, the Graphite 49 lets you control 2, 3 or 4 unique voices simultaneously. Record your bass, string, pad and lead tones all to a single track and leave room for your creative ideas to run wild.
Samson gets Trigger happy
The Samson Graphite 49 controller features 4 large velocity-sensitive trigger pads with aftertouch that can be easily programmed and assigned. Use them to tap out drum beats, cue one-shot samples or start and stop sequences. Expand your options further with a second bank of triggers, bringing the total to 8. With such versatility, the trigger pads are a vital performance and recording feature of the Graphite 49.
Elements of Samson design
With a compact body design that is thinner than most controllers in its class, the Graphite 49 is perfect for live performance and studio applications. It's constructed for optimal playability whether it's placed on a solid surface or mounted to a keyboard stand. And its sleek, angled top panel offers easy viewing in any environment.
On-the-go with the iPad
When combined with the iPad using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit, Samson's Graphite 49 is a great tool for making music on-the-go. Use it with your favorite music and synth iPad apps that support MIDI controllers. For additional mobility, the Graphite 49 can be powered directly by the iPad when you are away from your desktop computer.
