OUR PART # GRAPHITE-25
The Samson Graphite 25 USB MIDI Controller's semi-weighted keyboard features 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.
The Graphite 25 features dedicated Transpose and Octave buttons, which allow you to 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. Also featured on the Graphite 25 are classic Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels.
The Graphite 25's controller functions feature a programmable master volume fader, eight encoders, and four function buttons - all customizable for hands-on control of your DAW. The controller functions can also 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.
Up to three zones on the keyboard can be set in order to create splits and layer sounds. This function allows different sounds to be assigned to different sections of keys for a personalized setup. With the keyboard divided into sections, the Graphite 25 lets you control two, three or four unique voices simultaneously, letting you record your bass, string, pad and lead tones all to a single track, if you so desire.
The Graphite 25 features four large velocity-sensitive trigger pads that can be 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.
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.
Bundled with the Graphite 25, 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 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.
