Novation Impulse 25 Midi Keyboard

Precision keyboard and professional control surface.

Novation's Impulse series are a range of professional USB/MIDI controllers. The Impulse 25 has a 25-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" keyboard

Impulse 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 surface

The 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 control

Automap 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 controlling

Automap 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 control

Impulse’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 Launch

Impulse 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 Warping

Impulse 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 Roll

Drum 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.

Best 25 keys midi controller but ...

Best thinks about it1) Best semi-weight keys : Its keys feels right at spot for a producer gives great response and smooth playing experience at same time (you can play for hours) if you piano playing experience you love it.2) best in class integration with daws (best for Ableton user).3) 4gb sound library coming with it have good samples you have to dig in for great stuff but for beginner its already gold you start making music,beat and improve your ability in daw.4) drum pad having great touch and register accurate velocity which very BUT now I just want to tell one thing and please consider it because it's true experience "GO FOR 49 KEYS IMPLUSE" yes I truly think if you really want get serious in music production you should get 49 keys because 1) you get 9 faders 2 ) As I tell above the best thing are its keys so get 24 more to play more on it and freely.3) you can use split zone effectively you can split channel for each instrument or midi track.4)it has more integration features like mixers layout (also great integration with other daws compared to 25) because you get faders. And for the price you get more in 49 keys one from 25 or 61 also.

The smoothest of them all

I'm a guitarist and a hobbyist music creator. The keyboard is a bit bulky compared to other 25 key midi keyboards out there but if you want the best this is the one for you. Very grand piano like keys accompanied by 8 large usable pads. The LCD is also very nice and helpful. Definitely a top end Novation.

NOVATION IMPULSE 25 MIDI CONTROLLER

the auto map feature that is unique to novation controllers is one of the main reasons for me purchasing their controllers. the impulse 25 is definitelyhigh end and has a premium feel about it. build quality is top notch. semi weighted feel of the keyboard is an added bonus. but trust me, the automap features makes instantly using the instrument and daw controls really easy and intuitive. the drum pads also feature after touch, again something that most controllersdon't even have on their keys. Comes with loads of useful software which added to my growing collection of instrument plugins and loops. happy to buy itfrom bajaao as they offered me the best price for it.
