Samson Graphite 25
The Samson Graphite 25 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 25-key semi-weighted keyboard with a feature set that is both useful and accessible, the Graphite 25 is a sleek, powerful tool that allows you to express your most dynamic musical ideas.
The Graphite 25 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 25 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.
When combined with the iPad using Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, the Graphite 25 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 25 can be powered directly by the iPad when you are away from your desktop computer.
The Graphite 25’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 25 keys, the Graphite 25’s pitch range is perfect for performing, while remaining highly portable.
Take full control of your DAW and virtual instruments with the Graphite 25’s controller functions. It features a programmable master volume fader, eight encoders and four function 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 25’s large LCD screen displays the behavior of every function in real-time, enabling intuitive mapping with any software you’re using.
Trigger Your Creativity
The Graphite 25 features four large velocity-sensitive trigger pads 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 eight. With such versatility, the trigger pads are a vital performance and recording feature of the Graphite 25.
