Novation Impulse 61 USB MIDI Controller Keyboard
Here we have Novation Impulse 61 USB MIDI Controller Keyboard in B-Stock. The B-Stock versions would have been on display only and will come boxed 'as new' with all accessories and a 1-year warranty.
The Novation Impulse 61 Note USB/MIDI controller designed to be the main control centre of your studio and music creation. The Impulse controller is designed to work with your music making software, controlling the software's mixer, instruments and effects.
The Impulse from Novation includes Automap 4, Novation's improved controller software. Automap 4 is now more simple and easier for DAW and plug-in assignment, making the Impulse work in harmony with your chosen software. The Impulse keyboard is fitted with a Semi-Weighted keybed and aftertouch, which is ultra-responsive and can adapt to your playing style.
The Impulse controller also features eight drum pads with multi-coloured LEDs, eight rotary encoders, full transport control, nine assignable buttons and nine faders. The large LCD screen on the Impulse keeps you informed of every operation.
The drum pads on the Impulse can be used to trigger clips in Ableton Live's session view; illuminating yellow if a clip is loaded, green if it is playing and red if it is set to record. They can also work in different modes, such as following the pattern of Impulse's on-board groovebox-style arpeggiator/step sequencer. The USB powered Impulse will be a true asset to any studio environment and perfect for all types of producers and musicians.

The 61 key Novation SL MKII was a recent uragpde from a 25 key M-Audio for my project studio.The keys have a very good feel. The software mapping takes some study, but it works great with Ableton Live8. The only down side was having to uragpde the Automap software from the Novation website. Definitely a 5 star keyboard for music writing. Great feel, great touch. As with all new technology a learning curve is involved. But there is a very helpful community forum on the Novation website [...].
