Samson Carbon 49

smallcogmusic, 12.02.2015
I bought this keyboard specifically to use with my iPad so I didn't have to carry around anything else to use it with, no power leads, adaptors etc. and for this its great! You do have to buy the Apple Camera connector which is a shame but I already had one to use with other bits on my iPad.

The dock on the keyboard is an cutout on the top where you can sit the iPad rather than a dock as you still need to wire everything up rather than just drop the iPad in but it holds it at the right angle once in there. There are some spacers included with the keyboard for the newer, thinner iPads so it fits better and tighter in the slot but I didn't really need them with the iPad Air I have. It also includes a USB cable and a disk containing samples and players for the PC.

The fact that the keyboard is completely powered by the iPad is great and it doesn't seem to drain the iPad any noticeably quicker than normal which is a bonus. I have the Korg iMS20, Garageband and another couple of apps and they work very well with no obvious lag. The keyboard feel is heavier than my Arturia but feels good and not too clicky. There are 2 wheels for pitch and mod and they work fine along with a slider for volume, an edit button to use with the keys for various parameters and a 3 digit LED showing various parameters as you select them.

I bought this as part of a kit with the Thomann soft bag and stand and for the price is a great package and well worth every penny! So easy to just pop everything in the bag and be on your way!

Really good keyboard for the price

I needed a keyboard to use in our band. It is being used with virtual synthesizers on my laptop. The only criteria i needed is to have octave changer buttons and some sort of control functionality to switch midi channels on the go. The rotary knob can be programmed so all criteria met.

I found the keys a bit too springy, it bounces back a bit harder than it should, it takes some time to get used to it.
It is a plus that the velocity sensitivity can be modified through the options. I had to select the light velocity curve to get close to the real feeling. At default it was kind of hard to play louder.

The build quality of the product is really good for this price range, it weights just a little less than 3kg, which is ok.
I did not get this cheap feeling when i got the keyboard what you usually would expect.

I can't comment on iPad part as i do not own one.

To summarize: it is a great keyboard, light, does its job. Do not expect anything incredible. but it's better than other keyboard in the same category. I can only recommend it for a basic MIDI keyboard
