Take control of your DAW with the Nektar Impact LX49+ USB MIDI controller.

Switch between Mixer, Instrument, and Preset modes for a fast workflow. The labeled faders and encoders show default instrument parameter assignments, helping you keep your eyes off your computer screen. The Impact LX49+'s 49 synth-action keys give you a smooth, precise feel, as do its pitch and mod wheels.

The keyboard controller, done right

The keyboard controller, done right:
The Impact LX49+'s 49-note velocity-sensitive keyboard sports a silky synth action with medium tension. This makes it perfect for playing just about any type of part. To suit your playing style, you get four velocity curves that gradually increase in dynamics. For certain types of synth parts requiring consistent output, there are three fixed velocities. Pitch bend and modulation wheels are properly placed to your left, with the octave and transpose buttons above them. This is one nice controller!
Ample control capabilities:
Nektar hit big with their Panorama range. Now they've done it again - at a more affordable price. The streamlined Impact series of controllers offers intelligent mapping and tight integration with most popular DAWs, preset mixer and plug-in modes, transport and navigation controls, MIDI programming capabilities, and five user presets. That's a lot of control.
Includes Bitwig 8-Track DAW software:
From sketching your musical ideas and arranging them to final mixdown and even live performance, Bitwig DAW software gives you a powerful toolset and an amazingly fast workflow. The Nektar Impact LX49+ comes with Bitwig 8-Track DAW software, which features the entire collection of Bitwig Studio devices for use on up to eight project tracks with audio or MIDI.
