Sequencer and Performance System

Building upon the success of the K4815 Pattern Generator, CARBON takes pattern-based sequencing to a whole new level. Supporting polyphony, multiple tracks, editing and scene-based operation, CARBON offers a whole new approach to composing and performing.

// CARBON comes with 24V international Power Supply. //


Kilpatrick Audio "Certified Reburbished" units are of the same quality and come with the same support and warranty as regular products.
Any products which are not 100% perfect are marked as refurbished. This means they might have been briefly used for a sales demo,
or they might have a tiny imperfection in the enclosure. All units are mechanically and electrically perfect.
