Samson’s Carbon 49 USB MIDI Controller makes musical performance and production accessible to everyone. For seasoned musicians and young creators alike, the Carbon 49 offers versatile, yet easy-to-use features in a compact, lightweight controller that’s well-suited for the stage and studio.
The Carbon 49 offers players a semi-weighted keyboard comparable in feel to that of pro-level instruments. Its 49 velocity-sensitive keys allow you to accurately capture the full dynamics of a performance. In addition, the Carbon 49’s dedicated Transpose and Octave buttons, as well as its classic Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels, allow you to expand the keyboard and enhance your overall musical expression.
Take control of your music software with the Carbon 49’s assignable data encoder and volume slider. For easy editing, players can use the Shift key to adjust up to 14 performance-related control parameters. Also, the Carbon 49’s 3-digit, 7-segement LED shows the behavior of every function in real-time. For added versatility, the Carbon 49 includes traditional MIDI Out, sustain pedal input and USB port.
Designed with the iPad in mind, the Carbon 49 features an integrated iPad slot and can be used with your favorite MIDI-enabled apps via Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit. The Carbon 49 can even be directly powered by the iPad. In addition, the Carbon 49 comes with Komplete Elements software, by Native Elements, which offers a comprehensive selection of studio-quality sounds, effects and tools for modern music production, composition and sound design for your desktop Mac OS X or Windows.
With Samson’s Carbon 49 USB MIDI Controller, it’s never been easier to get the most out of your music software.
