Samson Graphite 49 overview

  • 1Description

The Samson Graphite 49 is a USB/MIDI keyboard with an impressive array of features. Its 49 keys are velocity-sensitive and capable of sending aftertouch messages for additional expression and parameter control. The keyboard is equipped with an extensive array of controllers including 9 faders, 8 encoders, 16 buttons, and 4 velocity-sensitive trigger pads. They're all programmable, and can be adjusted on the fly. A large LCD display helps make editing a breeze. The unit can be powered via USB bus power or with the included AC adapter.

The Graphite 49 has an abundance of performance-friendly features including dedicated transpose and octave buttons, pitch bend and modulation wheels, four zones for splits and layers, and adjustable velocity curves for both the keys and pads.

Connect to external MIDI instruments and interfaces using the MIDI Out jack, and plug in a sustain pedal (not included) through the rear-panel 1/4" pedal input. Included in the box is Native Instrument's Komplete Elements software (Windows and Mac), which gives you over 3 GB of samples and software instruments.

The unit can be powered by the USB bus or with the included AC adapter. For added mobility, you can also power it with an iPad via Apple's iPad Camera Connection kit (not included), which allows USB devices to connect to the iPad. Once connected, the Graphite 49 also functions as a controller for music and synth apps that support MIDI control.

    Samson Graphite 49 reviews

    Graphite 49 - USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic and solid controller for price I use it as a controller for recording and parameter control with virtuals and within the Native Instruments environmentcontrol. One still has to map most instrument parameters. Its basic setting works only with basics in DAW enviroment. It claims NI instruments are preprogrammed as it is bundled with the elements. Foir its price range and basic use as a controller - its fantastic. I had to send the first unit I received back as it had no firmware - blank screen. replacement was fine. Samson does make you pay your own shipping if you go through them for service and warranty issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice board; nice price! This is a great board that works flawlessly with my VB3 organ software. The knobs and sliders work fine; this thing was a breeze to set up. The keybed and action are fine; maybe just a bit better than what you might expect at this pricepoint. It's also a bit heavy, which probably indicates a very good build quality.
