Novation has introduced Impulse, a new line of USB/MIDI controllers that combine a traditional keyboard with drum pads and DAW controls.
- Precision semi-weighted keyboard with aftertouch.
- Professional control surface gives you full control of your DAW including mixer, transport and plug-in instruments and effects.
- Novation’s Automap control software makes it fast and simple to assign knobs, faders and buttons to your music software.
- Back-lit drum pads allow you to warp arpeggios and improvise with rhythm patterns – they also launch clips in Ableton.
- Large LCD screen displays control information.
- Hardware design is tough and rugged.
- Comes with Ableton Live Lite, Novation’s Bass Station synth and a Loopmasters sample pack.
- USB powered, with expression and sustain pedal inputs as well as MIDI in and out ports for connecting external MIDI instruments.
The Novation Impulse will come in 25, 49, and 61 keys versions. Pricing and availability are to be announced.
