Product Details: Impulse-61 is a 61-key professional USB/MIDI controller. It has a precision keyboard and a full control surface powered by a brand new version of Novation's Automap control software - Automap 4, which makes getting hands-on with your DAW/plug-ins fast and simple. Impulse also has 8 back-lit drum pads which can warp arpeggios, roll beats and launch Live clips.
Precision Keyboard: Ultra-responsive semi weighted keyboard with aftertouch Impulse has a precision 'players' keyboard. It is semi-weighted with assignable aftertouch and has been designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral. In addition to feeling good, it is incredibly accurate - this means it can translate musical expression extremely effectively. So your performance is reflected exactly by the synth or software instrument you are triggering.
Automap 4 control software: Spend more time making music, less time reading user guides Many MIDI controllers have knobs, faders and buttons, but using them is difficult and time consuming!
Impulse comes with Automap control software. This gives you instant mapping to the things you need to control, meaning you can make full use of faders, knobs and buttons on Impulse to get hands-on with your DAW and plug-ins
Full DAW/plug-in control surface The Impulse 61 comes standard with 8 knobs, 9 faders, 8 drum pads, transport controls, and a custom LCD screen.
The control surface allows you to get hands on control for your DAW and plug-ins. We have worked with all the major DAWs and plug-ins to make sure that you get instant control of your mixer, transport controls and plug-in instruments and effects.
Multi-function drum pads: Warp arpeggios, roll beats and launch clips in Ableton Live Impulse has 8 quality-feel drum pads which are velocity-sensitive with aftertouch. These are back-lit with 3-color LEDs which means they can do things other drum pads can't, like warping arpeggios in real time, rolling beats and launching clips in Ableton Live - Ableton Live Lite 8 comes with Impulse.
Works with all major DAWs and plug-in instruments and effects We have worked with major music software manufacturers to ensure Impulse gives you instant hands-on control. In addition to the major DAWs, Impulse & Automap 4 have been specially designed to give you full control of 3rd party plug-in instruments and effects, like Native Instruments, Waves or FXpansion.
