Samson gave the Carbon 49 a semi-weighted keyboard that provides musicians with a responsive and expressive platform 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. With 49 keys, the Carbon 49 controller's pitch range is perfect for performing, while remaining highly portable.
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 Samson Carbon 49 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.
Versatile and easy
Take control of your music software with the Carbon 49's assignable Data encoder and Volume slider. For easy editing, players can use the Edit key to adjust up to 14 performance-related control parameters. Also, Samson Carbon 49's 3-digit, 7-segement LED displays the behavior of every function in real-time. For added versatility, the Carbon 49 keyboard controller includes traditional MIDI Out, Sustain pedal input and USB connections.
Integrate your iPad
Designed with the iPad in mind, the Samson Carbon 49 features an integrated iPad slot. When combined with the iPad using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit, the Carbon 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, and for additional mobility, the Carbon 49 can be directly powered by the iPad.
