You can make beats by making do with your pre-existing set-up, but your process and production will be far improved by a dedicated MIDI controller primed for the position. Built with 13 velocity-sensitive backlit pads, six parameter knobs, a crossfader, and full compatibility with computers and iPads, the Samson Graphite MD13 MIDI Controller is the easiest way to enter electronic production.
After hooking your MD13 up to your computer or iPad through the Mini USB port, you can take to your music making software and assign different sounds and samples to every pad. If you need another set to complete your sound, the second bank of triggers lets you prime your pads for your next dance with destiny. For a little extra function, every pad features aftertouch, allowing for customizable control over your effects and parameters.
To complete the package, the MD13 comes complete with six parameter knobs, a DJ-style crossfader, and octave buttons that allow for a full four-octave range. Also including a Control Change Mode, Program Mode, and a programmable master encoder, the Samson Graphite MD13 MIDI Controller opens the door on your music production potential.
