I purchased the Impulse 61 mainly for plugging chords and melodies into FL Studio 10. The keyboard has a great feeling and is weighted like a dream. All of the faders, rotary encoders, and pads were a breeze to program and have opened my workflow to a whole new level.

I use the product to control Ableton Live and Reason and it is spectacular! It lets me have great hands-on control, the keys are amazingly expressive, the drum pads are great, and sliders are awesome too. This is for sure a great MIDI keyboard and easily compares to any MIDI keyboard out there.

This is my first keyboard, so there is a learning curve, and I have nothing to compare it to. I have no complaints about the key action, seems very responsive and easy. All the faders and knobs are sturdy and easy to move. Works great under both Logic and Ableton.

I use the Novation Impulse 61 with NI Komplete 9 and Cubase 7 and it is awesome. The ability to either set my controllers or have Automap map them is a great feature and timesaver. Great feel on the keys and pads and intuitive display.

Product Description
Novation's Impulse series are a range of professional USB/MIDI controllers. The Impulse 61 has a 61-key precision keyboard and full control surface powered by a brand new version of Novation's Automap control software - Automap 4 (which makes getting hands-on with your DAW/plug-ins fast and simple). Impulse also has 8 back-lit drum pads which can warp arpeggios, roll beats and launch clips in Ableton live."Player's" keyboardImpulse has a precision 'players' keyboard. It is semi-weighted with assignable aftertouch and has been designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral. In addition to feeling good, it is incredibly accurate - this means it can translate musical expression (how you play the keyboard) extremely effectively. So your performance is reflected exactly by the synth or software instrument you are triggering.Full control surfaceThe control surface allows you to get hands on control for your DAW and plug-ins. We have worked with all the major DAW and plug-in manufacturers to make sure that you get instant control of your mixer, transport controls and plug-in instruments and effects.Many MIDI controllers have knobs, faders and buttons, but using them is difficult and time consuming. Impulse (as with all Novation controllers) comes with Automap control software. This gives you instant mapping to the things you need to control, meaning you can make full use of faders, knobs and buttons on Impulse to get hands-on with your music software.Automap Control Software - instant mixer, transport and plug-in controlAutomap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It makes it fast and simple to control your music software with knobs, buttons and faders. It has been used by many top musician/producers since 2006.Impulse gives you control over the mixer, transport and plug-ins of all major DAWs, as well as plug-in instruments and effects that don't come with your DAW, like Native Instruments, Waves or FXpansion. Automap enables you to see instantly which knobs, faders and buttons are controlling which part of your software. It also makes it easy to quickly change what the knobs are controlling.See what you are controllingAutomap has a software edit page that looks just like the Impulse control surface. This labels what each knob, fader and button is controlling, because with so many things in your DAW and plug-ins, it is easy to lose track of what is assigned to what. You can hide this window once you are finished with it, so you can continue making music.Get instant controlImpulse's controls can be used to control your plug-in instruments and effects. When you open a software instrument/effect, the 8 knobs will already be linked to things in it. If you want to control different things, just press the ˜Learn' button, click on the software thing, and wiggle the knob that you want to control it. This way you can get hands on control of exactly what you want almost instantly.Back-lit drum pads, Ableton Clip Launch, Arpeggiator and Beat Roll:Impulse has 8 drum pads which are velocity-sensitive - with aftertouch! These are back-lit with 3-colour LEDs which means they can do things other drum pads can't¦Ableton Live Clip LaunchImpulse comes with Ableton Live Lite included - but if you are already an Ableton user, you will appreciate the power of this. The 8 drum pads can be used to launch clips in Live. The three colours indicate whether a clip is loaded (yellow), playing (green), or recording (red). This makes Impulse the best keyboard for Ableton Live users without exception.Arpeggiator WarpingImpulse has a built in Arpeggiator which enables you to play a turn any chord into an arpeggio. The drum pads take this a step further by enabling you to warp arpeggios. By switching the 8 pads in or out you can change the rhythm of the arpeggio in real time (this works brilliantly with drums!)You can also change the speed, shape, syncopation and gate time of the arpeggio.Beat RollDrum pads are great for playing drums! With Beat Roll you can hold on to the pad and create a roll - because the pads are pressure sensitive you can change the volume of the drum as it is rolling, just by pushing down on the pad. This enables some really cool performance tricks!Works with all major DAWs:In addition to the major DAWs, Impulse & Automap 4 have been specially designed to give you full control of 3rd party plug-in instruments and effects, like Native Instruments, Waves or FXpansion.Ableton (Ableton Live Lite comes included with Impulse)- Mixer control (all channels)- Transport control- Clip launch (using Impulse's back-lit drum pads)- Scene launch- Plug-in/Device control (instant control of Ableton's own devices as well as 3rd party VST/AU plug-ins)Cubase- Mixer control (all channels)- Transport control- Plug-in instrument/effects control (instant control of whatever VST instrument or effect is in focus)Logic- Mixer control (all channels)- Transport control- Plug-in instrument/effects control (instant control of Logic's own plug-ins and 3rd party VST/AU plug-ins)Pro Tools- Mixer control (all channels)- Transport control- Plug-in instrument/effects control (instant control of Pro Tools' own plug-ins and 3rd party RTAS plug-ins)Reason/Record- Mixer control (all channels)- Transport control- Instant control of rack devices (Thor, Dr Octo Rex etc.)Sonar (PC only)- Mixer control (all channels)- Transport control- Plug-in VST instrument/effects controlImpulse will also work with other DAWs such as Studio One, Garage Band and FL Studio.
