    Product Description

    The Novation Impulse 61 sets a new standard for controller keyboards everywhere! Novation have made the Impulse keyboards tactile physically and intuitive operationally!

    Here’s What Novation Say About the Impulse 61

    Novation’s ultra-responsive, highly expressive 61-key MIDI keyboard hosts a comprehensive array of fully assignable controls, integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, Apple Logic Pro, Avid Pro Tools and other major music software, and is built to be a true player’s instrument.

    Our Most Expressive Keyboard

    In designing Impulse 61, Novation went all-out to create a supremely expressive performance keyboard. Ultra-responsive with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, its full-size piano style keys adapt beautifully to virtual organs, synths and pianos. Novation’s High Rate Scan (HRS) technology ‘reads’ the keyboard 10,000 times per second, capturing every nuance and detail of your performance to an incredible degree of precision.

    Produce Better Music

    Take control of your mix and sculpt your sounds with Impulse 61’s endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile 45mm faders, plentiful buttons and LCD screen. Each control can be manually mapped to any DAW or plug-in parameter via MIDI.

    Do More with Your Drum Pads

    Impulse 61’s eight pressure-sensitive, backlit pads are perfect for playing and recording drum and percussion tracks, with Roll mode making light work of automatic note repeats. Going beyond beats, Arp mode uses the pads for real-time arpeggio design, while in Ableton Live, they can even be assigned as multi-coloured clip launchers – yellow for a loaded clip, green for a playing clip, or red for a recording clip.

    Connect to Just About Anything

    Being class-compliant and USB bus-powered, Impulse 61 only has to be plugged into a Mac or PC to get up and running – no power supply required. It’s gig-ready, too, with a 5-pin DIN MIDI Out port enabling connection to hardware synths and sound modules.

    Make Music Straight Out of the Box

    A great controller keyboard needs great software to bring it to life, and music software doesn’t get much greater than Ableton Live, the Lite edition of which is included in the box and integrates with Impulse 61’s controls to provide:

    • Mixer control (all channels)
    • Transport control
    • Clip launching (using Impulse 61’s backlit drum pads)
    • Scene launching
    • Plug-in/Device control

    Now expanded from 1GB to a whopping 4GB, the Loopmasters sample library included with every Novation Launch, SL and Impulse keyboard is packed with professional quality, royalty-free loops and one-shots, plus three fully multisampled Simpler-based instruments for Ableton Live 9: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano and Organ.

    Encompassing all contemporary genres – from blues, funk and hip-hop to bass, techno and all flavours of house – and taking in a huge range of electronic and acoustic instrumentation, it’s everything you need to start making music today!

    As well as Ableton Live, Impulse 61 integrates with Logic Pro, Cubase, Reason, Sonar, Pro Tools and other major music production applications.

    Mr Graham Witcher11th Apr 2019

    What an excellent MIDI keyboard and so easy to program too. The template facility makes using MIDI a breeze. It looks great too with a good keybed action and superb touch sensitive drum pads with backlighting. I am currently using it as a standalone keyboard controlling synth modules and it works a treat. I am sure it will be even more impressive when I get to.use it with a DAW on the PC.

    Automap 4 only works fully with Logic Pro DAW only (basically the paid version of garageband) - not with Garageband. Apart from that happy with the product.
