    Impulse is an ultra-responsive and expressive keyboard with loads of fully assignable controls. Designed for people who love to play keys, it's a pleasure to play and integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools and other major music software.

    Novation specifically designed the Impulse keyboard to let you create truly expressive performances. Ultra-responsive with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, its full-size piano style keys adapt perfectly to any instrument you want to play, including organs, synths and pianos. While you’re playing, our unique High Rate Scan (HRS) technology will scan the keyboard 10,000 times per second to capture every nuance of your performance.

    Produce Better 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.

    Impulse is gig-ready, too; 5 pin MIDI outputs allow you to connect to your favourite synth or module.

    Make Music Straight Out of the Box
    Ableton Live Lite comes in the box and integrates seamlessly with all the controls to provide:

    Mixer control (all channels)
    - Transport control
    - Clip launch (using Impulse's back-lit drum pads)
    - Scene launch
    - Plug-in/Device control
    - You’ll also get an impressive library of free samples from Loopmasters.
