The Carbon 61 has a semi-weighted keyboard comparable to pro-level instruments. Its 61 velocity-sensitive keys allow you to accurately capture the full dynamics of a performance. In addition, the Carbon 61’s dedicated Transpose and Octave buttons, as well as its Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels, allow you to expand the keyboard and enhance your overall musical expression.

Take control of your music software with the Carbon 61’s assignable data encoder and volume slider. For easy editing, players can use the Shift key to adjust up to 14 performance-related control parameters. Also, the Carbon 61’s 3-digit, 7-segment LED displays the behavior of every function in real-time.

Designed with the iPad in mind, the Carbon 61 features an integrated iPad slot and can be used with your favorite MIDI apps via Apple’s Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. The Carbon 61 can even be directly powered by the iPad. And it’s
bundled with Native Instrument’s Komplete Elements software, which offers a vast range of instruments and effects for modern music production, composition and sound design.

Great starter midi controller.


Great starter midi controller at a low price.





Good deal !!



Poor experience.


It arrived in a container that was split wide open and was lying in my flower bed. I am not sure the keyboards weren't previously used. At a minimum the boxes containing the keyboards were previously opened.



I would buy this again


It's perfect now instead of taking two heavy keyboards on the road I get to take my new Samson Carbon 61 in place of one of my other heavy keyboards it makes it a lot easier on me



Great, simple, programmable keyboard controller


I use this as a keyboard controller for my DAW to play software keyboards and synthesizers. It works great out of the box. USB-B to USB-A connects to the computer. Also has a MIDI out that I use to control a drum machine. The keyboard has the ability to select which MIDI channel to output. It would be nice if individual keys could be tied to different MIDI channels, however only one at a time is supported. The keyboard has programmable functionality, such as selecting the velocity profile and response of the pressed keys. An additional feature is the ability to program the functionality of the knobs and wheels, which I find quite handy and nice. Overall a great keyboard for the price.



Love this midi keyboard , Great staff and selection !


To compose my music of course , was low on cash and had some monitors , that I didn't need anymore , so I went to the Sam Ash in Glendale , AZ , Nick helped me with the trade of my speakers for the midi keyboard , the music exchange is a great program , and the Staff at Sam Ash Glendale , provide excellent service , I always get my gear from SA , and if I am selected as the winner , I be sure and put it back in your business 😜🤑🎼🎹



Good product


Good midi keyboard for the price.



Great design


These are really great for any musician. I liked how compatible it is with the I pad. A very useable creative tool. I am staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.




Bargain price Pro performance


This 61 key controller is a great value. 61 touch sensitive keys are enough to cover my keyboard needs which usually include layers of piano and organ. This controller linked up seamlessly with my iMac through USB. Light and story, a great value. This is a hands on review by Jim at Sam Ash Columbus
