Novation have been pioneers in controller hardware instrumentation and the latest Impulse 61 controller is one of the best value and versatile MIDI keyboard controllers they have developed. This particular model is kitted with a 61 key velocity sensitive keyboard with assignable aftertouch. Whether triggering virtual hardware or other hardware instruments the Impulse touch and response is high quality and precise.
8 Sliders, 8 velocity sensitive trigger pads and 9 assignable knobs and buttons put massive amounts of control at your fingertips from 1 device. Full transport controls are also easily accessible from the top panel of the Impulse 61 top panel. Assignment of controls has never been easier to assign, Automap 4 is unique to Novation and with 3 movements you can assign virtually any control to any parameter in your DAW, AU or VST device. There is even a community of growing Automap 4 maps which people have created and modified, free for users to download from the website so you can swap and try maps created by people from around the world.
The multi-function trigger pads have multi-coloured backlit LED's which makes them truly versatile for many systems. Pads will change colour for different functions such as triggering clips in Ableton Live and recording clips whilst they may also be used for triggering your drum samples and sounds.
The Novation Impulse controllers are USB buss powered. No matter where you go with your laptop or computer you have no need for a separate power supply for your controller keyboard. Power, data and all control information is transmitted down a single USB cable.
