Precision keyboard and professional control surface.

Novation Impulse series are a range of professional USB/MIDI controllers. The Impulse 61 has a 61-key precision keyboard and full control surface powered by a brand new version of Novation Automap control software - Automap 4 (which makes getting hands-on with your DAW/plug-ins fast and simple). Impulse also has 8 back-lit drum pads which can warp arpeggiosroll beats and launch clips in Ableton live.

"Player" keyboard
Impulse has a precision layerskeyboard. It is semi-weighted with assignable aftertouch and has been designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral. In addition to feeling goodit is incredibly accurate - this means it can translate musical expression (how you play the keyboard) extremely effectively. So your performance is reflected exactly by the synth or software instrument you are triggering.

Full control surface
The control surface allows you to get hands on control for your DAW and plug-ins. We have worked with all the major DAW and plug-in manufacturers to make sure that you get instant control of your mixertransport controls and plug-in instruments and effects.

Many MIDI controllers have knobsfaders and buttonsbut using them is difficult and time consuming. Impulse (as with all Novation controllers) comes with Automap control software. This gives you instant mapping to the things you need to controlmeaning you can make full use of fadersknobs and buttons on Impulse to get hands-on with your music software.

Automap Control Software - instant mixertransport and plug-in control
Automap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It makes it fast and simple to control your music software with knobsbuttons and faders. It has been used by many top musician/producers since 2006.

Impulse gives you control over the mixertransport and plug-ins of all major DAWsas well as plug-in instruments and effects that dont come with your DAWlike Native InstrumentsWaves or FXpansion. Automap enables you to see instantly which knobsfaders and buttons are controlling which part of your software. It also makes it easy to quickly change what the knobs are controlling.

See what you are controlling
Automap has a software edit page that looks just like the Impulse control surface. This labels what each knobfader and button is controllingbecause with so many things in your DAW and plug-insit is easy to lose track of what is assigned to what. You can hide this window once you are finished with itso you can continue making music.

Get instant control
Impulses controls can be used to control your plug-in instruments and effects. When you open a software instrument/effectthe 8 knobs will already be linked to things in it. If you want to control different thingsjust press the Learn buttonclick on the software thingand wiggle the knob that you want to control it. This way you can get hands on control of exactly what you want almost instantly.

Back-lit drum padsAbleton Clip LaunchArpeggiator and Beat Roll:

Impulse has 8 drum pads which are velocity-sensitive - with aftertouch! These are back-lit with 3-colour LEDs which means they can do things other drum pads can¦

Ableton Live Clip Launch
Impulse comes with Ableton Live Lite included - but if you are already an Ableton useryou will appreciate the power of this. The 8 drum pads can be used to launch clips in Live. The three colours indicate whether a clip is loaded (yellow)playing (green)or recording (red). This makes Impulse the best keyboard for Ableton Live users without exception.

Arpeggiator Warping
Impulse has a built in Arpeggiator which enables you to play a turn any chord into an arpeggio. The drum pads take this a step further by enabling you to warp arpeggios. By switching the 8 pads in or out you can change the rhythm of the arpeggio in real time (this works brilliantly with drums!)
You can also change the speedshapesyncopation and gate time of the arpeggio.

Beat Roll
Drum pads are great for playing drums! With Beat Roll you can hold on to the pad and create a roll - because the pads are pressure sensitive you can change the volume of the drum as it is rollingjust by pushing down on the pad. This enables some really cool performance tricks!
