Samson Graphite 49-Key USB MIDI Controller with Komplete Elements Reviews


A lot of keys for the price, but a fair few issues...

I bought this as I wanted a 49 key keyboard on a budget. It does pretty much everything I want, but there are some definite issues. It's about the cheapest 49 key model about, but if you don't need the 49 keys you can get better things for your budget.

Once set up it controls everything fine, smoothly and with no glitches. The encoders feel a little wobbly, but no more than anything else at the budget end. The keys are semi weighted and pleasant to play for something of this price. The Software bundle is good and does give significantly more sounds than the standard free versions from NI.

However, it does feel cheap. On my copy one encoder knob worked loose from the shaft within a couple of weeks and after about a year one of the key weights came off (they are glued under the keys) and slipped right inside the case.

It is fiddle to program, with multiple button pushing to set up a patch. There are less user assignable patch memories than stated (more of the slots are uneditable presets for obscure DAWS). It doesn't automap to Ableton (but to be fair it never said it did). The Patch editor is too big for a standard Laptop display and can't be resized. Also it draws power from USB if it is connected regardless of whether you use an external supply - which again is not made clear in the specs.

All in all, a lot of keys for the price, but a fair few problems too.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
