    Value / fair price

    Samson Technologies Carbon 61Published on 12/21/13 at 03:55
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I had a Prodipe MIDI keyboard USB 49N (especially not to buy ...) whose dynamics was random, very rigid, short, unplayable keys. I fell into a music store on the carbon 61. I asked to try it (just plug in midi) to see a little touch. The price was affordable, it's Christmas, come on, I'm happy, I buy it.

    Features:
    Hardware:
    - 61 function keys with adjustable velocity curve (possibly 4 settings)
    - Connector for sustain pedal,
    - USB connector,
    - MIDI output unusable since we must supply by USB so as using USB,
    - Button transposition (octave / semitone)
    - 3-digit 7-segment display,
    - Pitch bend and modulation knobs,
    - Fader volume
    - Rotary knob for adjustments.

    Software:
    It comes with the following Elements Native Instruments Komplete for PC and MAC. (Kontakt, Reaktor and Guitar Rig).

    UTILIZATION

    For the price, the keyboard is ok but not worth a real keyboard with the touch of the piano but it is perfect for playing live example. It is lightweight and therefore easily transportable.
    The manual comes in the CD. It is in English with some French translations for some software. The use is simple and intuitive so you can switch between manual.
    So I work on PC (like MAC), simply plug the keyboard into the USB: it is detected and installed automatically and ready for all MIDI software.

    Where it goes bad, it's installing Komplete Elements ... First installed, it is already long, but hey, if it worked the first time, it would! And no, big crash, there was a bug between my partner's (MOTU 828mkII) and soft. Forced uninstalled everything (even my card because it was planted in planted), resettlement of my sound card drivers and then retry installation Komplete: miracle! it works! Why it crashed ... mystery ... Well, I thought was the end of my troubles, well no! To use the software, you must activate it. My music computer is not connected to the Internet can not activate it. I look at the manual, it is stated that if the recording software does not detect internet, then there is a procedure to do without internet is proposed. Well it does not work. I had to move my turn to connect to internet activation.

    In short, you understand that the software side is really off-putting.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I just bought it, so I will complete this review as and time measurement.
    I like the hardware side of this as well, if you buy it, it is for the keyboard and not the software suite that comes with it.
