As the middle child of Novation’s IMPULSE SERIES of keyboard controllers, Impulse49 packs all the tricks into a nice bundle.
The 49 Note keyboard is very responsive with semi-weighted action, assignable aftertouch and chunky keys, making it a nice balance between a piano and a synth. High Rate Scan (HRS) technology will also scan the keyboard 10,000 times per second to capture any performance as accurately as possible.
8 Trigger Pads: Create unique sequences and rhythms using pressure-sensitive drum pads to trigger arpeggios, launch clips, and warp and roll beats. These pads also function as multicoloured clip launchers, so you can tell whether the clip is loaded (yellow), playing (green), or recording (red).
Add to that the 8 faders (plus master), 8 knobs, pitch/mod wheels and transport keys – all housed in a rugged, tourable housing, and you’ve got a great, compact controller keyboard.
