There’s a whole debate to be had over which microphones to use, what software to use on your PC, how to soundproof a room, and so on. But what often gets overlooked is taking the sound from a studio quality microphone and getting it into the software in the first place.
Graphite M32 Mini
Samson’s Graphite M32 USB MIDI Controller makes home studio and on-the-go music production accessible to everyone. The Graphite M32 features a 32-key velocity-sensitive mini keyboard with a variety of programmable controls for optimal playability and customization in an ultra-portable design. And with iPad/USB bus power and plug-and-play operation, the Graphite M32 makes it easy to get the most out of your music software, no matter where creativity strikes.
The Right Feel
The Graphite M32’s mini keyboard provides musicians with a responsive and expressive platform that is designed to feel more like an instrument than a controller. It comes equipped with velocity-sensitive keys that accurately capture the dynamics of a performance. With 32 keys, the Graphite M32's pitch range is perfect for performing, while remaining highly portable. Regardless as to its compact size, the Graphite M32’s keyboard is equipped to handle 2-handed parts (left and right simultaneously).
With a dedicated Octave button, you can expand the Graphite M32’s keyboard to a full 4-octave range, without using any sub menus or shift keys. The controller’s Sustain button enables the controller to extend notes without the need for an external pedal accessory. In addition, the Graphite M32 features Pitch Bend and Modulation touch-sensitive ribbon strips that offer precise control over the effects and add portability value to the unit. With all these comprehensive features, the Graphite M32 puts a wide range of musical expression and tone manipulation at your fingertips.
Versatile & Easy
Take control of your music software with the Graphite M32’s programmable Data slider and Volume knob. In addition, the controller offers a Control Change (CC) mode for sending control change messages, as well as a Program setting for relaying program change information. And for easy connection to your computer, the Graphite M32 features a mini USB port and comes complete with a USB to mini USB cable.
When combined with the iPad using Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit, the Graphite M32 is a great tool for making music on-the-go. Use it with your favorite music and synth iPad apps that support MIDI controllers. For additional mobility, the Graphite M32 can be powered directly by the iPad when you are away from your desktop computer.
Free Editor Software
For use with the Graphite M32, as well as Samson's other mini USB MIDI controllers (M25, MF8, MD13), a Graphite Editor Software can be downloaded for free from Samson’s website. The software can be used to customize MIDI workflow by creating presets on the editor and saving them to your Graphite M32 for quick recall.
Whether you’re a producer, performer or DJ, Samson’s Graphite M32 USB MIDI Controller gives you all the music production control you need for home studio and mobile applications

- Simply Great!!!
If you're a pianist who is uncomfortable with smaller keys, this may not be for you. It's definitely not a performance-oriented device for the serious pianist, but of course you wouldn't be looking at a 32-key keyboard for that anyway. It's the same width as my extended computer keyboard. I found myself having to constantly use the octave up and octave down keys. The extra 5th helps eliminate this, but the smaller keys keep the unit compact. Its lightweight and easy to store
