  • Feels More Like An Instrument

    The Graphite 49'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. Aftertouch provides customizable control over a variety of effects and parameters, such as adding growl to a saxophone or vibrato to strings. With 49 keys, the Graphite 49's pitch range is perfect for performance while remaining highly portable.

  • Graphite Keyboard Pitch and Mod wheels

    Expand With Ease

    The Graphite 49 is simple to use. 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, without using sub-menus or shift keys. With all these comprehensive features, not to mention the classic pitch bend and modulation wheels, the Graphite 49 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.

  • Custom Controller

    Take full control of your DAW and virtual instruments with the control features of the Graphite 49. It features 9 faders, 8 encoders, and 16 buttons, all customizable for the ultimate in hands-on control. Not only are they customizable, but they can also be programmed on-the-fly without the need for editing software. The Graphite 49's large LCD screen displays the behavior of each function in real time, allowing intuitive mapping to any software you're using.

    Room To Create

    Another way players can make the Graphite 49 truly their own is by using up to 4 zones on the keyboard to create splits and layering sounds. This feature allows different sounds to be assigned to different sections of keys for a completely personalized setup. By dividing the keyboard into sections, the Graphite 49 lets you control 2, 3, or 4 unique voices simultaneously. Record your bass, string, pad and lead tones all on a single track, leaving room for your creative ideas to run wild.

  • Trigger Happy

    The Graphite 49 features 4 large velocity-sensitive trigger pads with aftertouch 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 with a second bank of triggers for a total of 8. With such versatility, the Trigger Pads are an essential performance and recording feature of the Graphite 49.
