Designed for expressive performances
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 includes a bundle of great software and sounds from some of the biggest names in the industry.
Produce Brilliant 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.
Your Impulse comes gig-ready, too; 5-pin MIDI outputs allow you to connect to your favourite synth or module.
