Novation Impulse USB Midi Controller Keyboard

Impulse is a range of professional USB/MIDI controllers. They each have 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 backlit drum pads that can warp arpeggios, roll beats, and launch Live clips.

Novation Impulse
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 (how you play the keyboard) extremely effectively. So your performance is reflected exactly by the synth or software instrument you are triggering.

Novation Impulse
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 (as with all Novation controllers) 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.

Novation Impulse
Full DAW/Plug-In Control Surface

With 8 knobs, 9 faders and buttons, and a custom LCD screen (1 fader and button on Impulse 25), the control surface allows you to get hands-on control for your DAW and plug-ins. Novation has 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.

Novation Impulse
Multi-Function Drum Pads: Warp Arpeggios, Roll Beats and Launch Clips in Ableton Live

Impulse has 8 quality-feel drum pads that are velocity-sensitive with aftertouch. These are backlit 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).

Novation Impulse
Works with All Major DAWs and Plug-In Instruments and Effects

Novation has worked with major music software manufacturers to ensure Impulse gives you instant hands-on control. In addition to the major DAWs–Reason, Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and Ableton Live–Impulse and 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.

Novation Impulse
USB Bus Powered

Impulse is USB powered, with expression and sustain pedal inputs as well as MIDI in and out ports for connecting external MIDI instruments.
