Impulse is our ultra-responsive and expressive keyboard with loads of fully assignable controls. Designed for people who love to play keys, it's a pleasure to play and integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools and other major music software.

Our Most Expressive Keyboard

We specifically designed the Impulse keyboard to let you create truly expressive performances. Ultra-responsive with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, its full-size piano style keys adapt perfectly to any instrument you want to play, including organs, synths and pianos.

While you’re playing, our unique High Rate Scan (HRS) technology will scan the keyboard 10,000 times per second to capture every nuance of your performance.

Produce Better Music

Mix and sculpt your sound using endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile 45mm faders, loads of buttons and a custom LCD screen. All controls work seamlessly with major music software and can be mapped to any parameter.

Do More with Your Drum Pads

Play drums in real time with pressure-sensitive pads for rolling beats, looping drum samples and designing arpeggios. These pads also function as multicoloured clip launchers in Ableton Live, so you can tell whether clip is loaded (yellow), playing (green), or recording (red).

Connect To Just About Anything

Impulse is class-compliant and USB bus-powered, so you can simply plug it into Mac or Windows and get started straight away, without the need for a power supply. Impulse is gig-ready, too; 5 pin MIDI outputs allow you to connect to your favourite synth or module.

Automap

Automap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It has been designed to make the job of assigning your hardware controls to various software parameters quick and easy. Despite having knobs and sliders, most MIDI controllers are no good at controlling plug-ins. It is difficult to assign the controls and you cannot see what is controlling which part of your music software. Automap 4 is the newest and most powerful version of Automap. It enables knobs, faders and buttons to instantly control plug-in instruments/FX, as well as your sequencer's mixer, transport controls and more.

Included:
  • 4GB Loopmaster sample library
  • Ableton Live 9 Lite
  • All Novation Keyed controllers now come with a choice from 1 of 4 XLN Audio Addictive Keys VST upon registration

Features:
  • Create Expressive Performances: Ultra-responsive, full-size, piano keyboard with semi-weighted action and aftertouch.
  • Accurately Capture Your Playing: Our unique High Rate Scan (HRS) technology scans your keyboard 10,000 times per second to capture every nuance of your performance.
  • Easily Assign All Controls: Easily control all major music software, including Ableton Live, Logic and Pro Tools, with Automap for instant hands-on DAW, instrument and plug-in control.
  • Shape Your Sound: Endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile faders, assignable buttons and LCD feedback display for directly shaping your sound.
  • Tough Enough to Tour: Solid and tough enough to handle the most demanding live situations.
  • Plug-in and Play: Fully class compliant and USB bus-powered, so you can plug in and play on Mac or Windows without a power supply or drivers.

The Novation Impulse line of controllers are one of the few which still offer a 5-pin MIDI port. This alone was worth the price, as it allows me to avoid the computer when need be. The build is nice and sturdy and the front panel has a logical layout. Love it!
