SUMMER NAMM2012 COVERAGE
Samson Carbon 61 Midi Controller with iPad Dock. Looks like they planned ahead by simply integrating an iPad stand instead of an actual fitted Dock. Basically it’s the Carbon 49 with more keys.
Samson’s Carbon 49 USB MIDI Controller was designed to make 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 both stage use and in the studio. It offers you 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-segment LCD displays the behavior of every function in real time. For added versatility, the Carbon 49 includes traditional MIDI Out, sustain pedal input and USB connections.
Staying hip with today’s popular and convenient technology, the Carbon 49 features an integrated iPad stand and can be used with your favorite MIDI apps via Apple’s Camera Connection Kit. The Carbon 49 can even be directly powered by the iPad.
In addition, it’s bundled with Native Instrument’s KOMPLETE ELEMENTS software, which offers a vast range of instruments and effects for modern music production, composition and sound design for your desktop Mac OS X or Windows.
Carbon 49 is available for $89
