  • Dynamic Feel

    The Carbon 61's semi-weighted keyboard gives musicians a responsive and expressive platform that feels more like an instrument than a controller. It features velocity-sensitive keys that accurately capture the dynamics of a performance. With 61 keys, the Carbon 61's pitch range is perfect for performance while remaining highly portable.

    Expand Your Expression

    Dedicated transpose and octave buttons let you change the key of any instrument, as well as shift the keyboard up or down a full 4 octaves each way, all without using sub-menus or shift keys. With all these comprehensive features, not to mention the classic Pitch and Mod wheels, the Carbon 61 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.

  • Performance Control

    Take control of your music software with the Carbon 61's assignable data encoder and volume slider. For easy editing, players can use the Edit button to adjust up to 14 performance-related control parameters. In addition, the Carbon 61's 3-digit, 7-segment LED displays the behavior of each function in real time. For added versatility, the Carbon 61 features a traditional MIDI out, sustain pedal input, and USB connectivity.

    Designed with the iPad in mind, the Carbon 61 features an integrated iPad slot. When paired with the iPad using Apple's Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, the Carbon 61 is a great tool for making music on the go.
