About This Product

Samson Graphite 49 - USB MIDI Controller

The Samson Graphite® 49 USB MIDI Controller gives you all the performance and production control you need to get the most out of your music software. Combining an intuitive 49-key semi-weighted keyboard with a feature set that is both useful and accessible, the Graphite 49 is a sleek, powerful tool that allows you to express your most dynamic musical ideas.

Feels More Like An Instrument

The Graphite 49’s semi-weighted keyboard provides musicians with a responsive and expressive platform that is designed to feel more like an instrument than a controller. It comes equipped with velocity-sensitive keys that accurately capture the dynamics of a performance. Aftertouch offers customizable control over a variety of effects and parameters, for example the addition of growl to a saxophone or vibrato to strings. With 49 keys, the Graphite 49’s pitch range is perfect for performing, while remaining highly portable.

Expand With Ease

The Graphite 49 is easy to use. With dedicated Transpose and Octave buttons, you can change the key of any given instrument, as well as expand the keyboard to a full 4-octave range, without using any sub menus or shift keys. With all of these comprehensive features, not to mention classic Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels, the Graphite 49 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.

Custom Controller

Take full control of your DAW and virtual instruments with the Graphite 49’s controller functions. It features 9 faders, 8 encoders and 16 buttons, all customizable for the ultimate in 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.

The Graphite 49 comes with presets for the following DAWs:

•Logic
•Pro Tools
•Cubase
•Ableton
•Cakewalk
•Reason
•Traktion
•Motu
•Mk Control
•Acid Pro
•Audition
•FL Studio
•Nuendo
•Magix
•Presonus

Room To Create

Another way players 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.

Trigger Happy

The Graphite 49 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 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 or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, the 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.

Graphite Comes Komplete

Bundled with the Graphite 49, Native Instrument’s Komplete Elements 8 software offers a comprehensive selection of studio-quality sounds, effects and tools for modern music production, composition and sound design. With over 3GB of samples, Komplete provides you with more than 1,000 premium sounds and 3 mighty player engines – all carefully compiled to provide a strong toolkit for both stage and studio. It’s a ready-to-roll professional software package for all production styles.

With the great feel and total control that keyboard players and studio professionals everywhere crave, the Samson Graphite® 49 USB MIDI Controller brings out the best in performance and production capability.
