The Samson 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, easy-to-use features in a compact, lightweight controller that's well-suited for the stage and studio.
The Right Feel
The Carbon 49'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. With 49 keys, the Carbon 49'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 Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels, the 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, the Carbon 49's 3-digit, 7-segement LED 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.
Integrate Your iPad.
Designed with the iPad in mind, the Carbon 49 features an integrated iPad slot. When combined with the iPad using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, 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.
Komplete with Carbon
Bundled with the Carbon 49, Native Instruments' Komplete Elements software offers a comprehensive selection of studio-quality sounds, effects and tools for modern music production, composition and sound design. With over 3GB of samples, Komplete Elements provides you with more than 1,000 premium sounds and three mighty player engines – all carefully compiled to provide a strong toolkit for both stage and studio.

I like the fact that the keyboard is very portable, so if I just want to toss it in the trunk of my car with my iPad, I can go anywhere and set it up and play. OK, so people are complaining that it doesn't have a lot of knobs and options, plus you can't get any sound out of it without the iPad (or other device).
But for something that is under $100.00, I think it is a bargain!
Granted, I am not going to play Bach's Two-Part Inventions or Piazzolla's Oblivion on it, and expect to wow anyone with this set-up. But as a way to just pass the time in Central Park or by the Weber Grille, it's great!
Me, my iPad, and my Carbon 49 will be quite happy spending the summer days together.
Overall, I'd recommend this product. Just remember that you're getting an entry-level controller, not to be compared to its $200+ competitors.
