A must have creative tool

Great value. A controller that works with almost any DAW you throw at it. Simple to program and velocity sensitive. Good for live performances and in the studio. All knobs, pads, keys are midi assignable.

Nice keyboard

I'm probably not an expert on midi controllers but I like this one very much. The keys are sensitive to the touch and overall it's a heavy keyboard compared to my older PreSonus 49

The Samson Carbon 49 USB MIDI controller does not rely on batteries, nor does it require to be plugged into a power outlet; all power is driven from the USB connection. This means it can be powered by the iPad by using the USB to 30 pin adapter found in the iPad Camera Connection Kit for the older iPads and in the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter for later generation iPads and the iPad mini. You will need an app such as Garage Band running on your iPad to accept the input from the controller to drive the sound. There are a total of 49 full sized keys that are velocity sensitive. There are buttons to change the octave if you need a higher or lower range, found above the pitch and modulation wheels. This allows for the full octave range found in a full sized keyboard or piano. Overall, the Carbon 49 USB MIDI controller from Samson Technologies delivers a simple solution for those looking to turn their iPad or iPad mini into a self powered musical instrument for home use, studio use, and on-the-go use. This will work well for beginners up to professionals, with a price that makes it very compelling

Sleek and Simple

The carbon 49 is one of the most basic simplistic midi controllers that Samson has released, and thats not a bad thing. This will allow users to not get overwhelmed by extra knobs and buttons, and really focus on the music they are trying to create. Also designed with the iPad in mind, the Carbon features an integrated iPad stand that enables the keyboard to be easily used to control MIDI apps on the iPad via Apple's Camera Connection Kit and the ipad can power the carbon as well. Easy and functional. This is a hands on review by Jason at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove
