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.

Great Feel & Total Control
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.

Keyboard dynamics
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.

Expanded mobility
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.

Ultimate control
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.

Make it your own
Another way players can make the Graphite 25 truly their own is to utilize up to three zones on the keyboard for creating splits and layering sounds. This function allows different sounds to be assigned to different sections of keys for a completely personalized setup. With the keyboard divided into sections, the Graphite 25 lets you control two, three or four unique voices simultaneously. Record your bass, string, pad and lead tones all to a single track and leave room for your creative ideas to run wild.

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.

Built to perform
With a compact body design that is thinner than most controllers in its class, the Graphite 25 is perfect for live performance and studio applications. It’s constructed for optimal playability whether it’s placed on a solid surface or mounted to a keyboard stand. And its sleek, angled top panel offers easy viewing in any environment.

iPad support
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.

Complete with Komplete
Bundled with the Graphite 25, Native Instrument’s 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.

              Small 25 key controller with 4 built-in drum pads! Great price point for a controller that can do so much. Also has handy transport features that's compatible with most major software's.

                      This controller is in all honesty more like an instrument than a controller. Its keys are touch sensitive and weighted much like a real keyboard. I really like how customizable it is. You can split the keys into three different zones making this controller unique to you. And the LCD screen displaying in real time is convenient.
