Novation’s finger is firmly on the pulse
The Innovative hardware designers Novation have unveiled Impulse, their latest range of controllers which will undoubtedly replicate the success of the company’s previous MIDI keyboard lines. The new collection features 3 USB MIDI keyboard controllers offering 25, 49 and 61 note keyboards and a range of assignable function controls including knobs, faders, buttons and drum pads.
Each impulse controller features precision semi weighted keys with after touch bringing a professional feel to an affordable price point. The versatile control surface can be attributed to many software parameters allowing the user to take control of the DAW including transport, mixer and various plug-in functions. 8 back lit drum pads are perfect for playing in complex rhythms, warping arpeggios and firing off clips within the included Ableton Live Lite software. Each controller comes bundled with a wealth of music software and audio samples including products from Ableton, Novation and Loopmasters. As with its predecessor, the Impulse range features Automap, Novation’s Automap control software which enables the user to assign knobs, faders and buttons to their chosen DAW or plug-in with great ease.
