Novation has announced Impulse, a range of USB/MIDI controllers.
They each have a keyboard and a control surface powered by a new version of Novation’s Automap control software – Automap 4. Impulse also has 8 back-lit drum pads which can warp arpeggios, roll beats and launch clips in Ableton live.
- Semi-weighted keyboard with aftertouch.
- Control surface gives you control of your DAW including mixer, transport and plug-in instruments and effects.
- Back-lit drum pads allow you to warp arpeggios and improvise with rhythm patterns – they also launch clips in Ableton.
- LCD screen displays control information.
- Comes with Ableton Live Lite, Novation’s Bass Station synth and a Loopmasters sample pack.
- USB powered, with expression and sustain pedal inputs as well as MIDI in and out ports for connecting external MIDI instruments.
