Keyboards-Midi Control & Beat Production
The Novation Impulse 49 USB MIDI controller gives you
everything you need to control your DAW with expression and
precision. At the heart of the Impulse 49 is its highly responsive
semi-weighted keyboard with assignable aftertouch. You get full
DAW/plug-in control via 9 faders, 8 rotarys, 8 backlit performance
pads, an army of dedicated/assignable buttons and transport
controls, and an LCD screen to keep you status-savvy. The Impulse
49 also ships with a tidy collection of cool software and sounds.

The Novation Impulse 49's semi-weighted keybed is first-class.
Designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer
accessory, these keys communicate musical expression to your DAW
with an efficacy you never thought possible. That's always been the
challenge with MIDI and computer-based music creation - and the
Impulse 49 attacks it head-on. The result is better music.
In addition to the superb keyboard, the Novation Impulse 49's
multi-function, backlit drum pads let you roll beats, warp
arpeggios, launch clips in Ableton Live, and curb the potential for
mayhem that lurks beneath the surface of every complex DAW setup.
And with immediate access to your DAW's transport, mixer and
plug-ins, you'll enjoy increased productivity and focus, resulting
in, again, better music.
Works with all major
The Novation Impulse 49 has been designed and tested to work
with all major DAWs and plug-in instruments and effects, including
Ableton (Ableton Live Lite comes included with Impulse), Cubase,
Logic, ProTools, Reason/Record, Sonar (PC only), FL Studio, Studio
One, and Garage Band. Automap 4 control software is the magic that
gives you immediate hands-on access to your DAW and plug-ins. In
addition, you get Impulse 49 access to your 3rd party plug-in
instruments and effects, such as Native Instruments, Waves or
FXpansion. In Live, you can even control Scene Launch and Clip
Launch using Impulse's back-lit drum pads. The Novation Impulse 49
is one serious controller.
