Comments from customers who bought this item:
The Impulse 25 has a 25-key precision, semi-weighted keyboard with assignable aftertouch. Designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral, it is also incredibly accurate, translating musical expression extremely effectively. Your performance is reflected exactly by the synth or software instrument you are triggering.
The keyboard includes a control surface to give you hands-on control of your DAW and plug-ins. Eight knobs, a custom LCD screen and a fader and button let you take control of your mixer, transport controls and plug-in instruments and effects, and the included Novation Automap 4 software gives you instant mapping to the things you need to control.
Impulse 25 also has 8 quality-feel drum pads which are velocity-sensitive with aftertouch. Back-lit with 3-colour LEDs, they can do things other drum pads can't, including warping arpeggios in real time, rolling beats and launching clips in Ableton Live. Ableton Live Lite is included with the keyboard, for production, performance and composition.
As well as Ableton, Impulse is designed to give you instant hands-on control of Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Reason/Record and Sonar. It also works as a standard MIDI device with other DAWs such as Garage Band, and comes with free software including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station, Loopmasters sample library and 502MB of live drum loops and breaks from Mike The Drummer.
