Impulse is a range of professional USB/MIDI controllers. They each have a precision keyboard and a 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.

Create Expressive Performances
Ultra-responsive, full-size piano-style keyboard with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, plus Sustain and Expression pedal inputs. 

Accurately Capture Your Playing
Novation’s High Rate Scan (HRS) technology scans the keyboard 10,000 times per second to accurately capture every nuance of your performance.

Easily Assign All Controls
Get hands-on with any major music production software, including Ableton Live, Logic Pro and Pro Tools.

Shape Your Sound
Manipulate your sounds and mixes using Impulse 49’s endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile faders and assignable buttons, with feedback provided by the LCD display. 

Do More with Your Drum Pads
Eight velocity- and pressure-sensitive backlit pads enable you to play beats, design arpeggios and launch clips in Ableton Live.

Tough Enough to Tour
Solid and rugged enough to handle the most demanding live situations. 

Plug-In and Play
Fully class compliant and USB bus-powered, Impulse 49 ‘just works’ with Mac OS X and Windows, requiring no power supply or drivers. 

Connect To Just About Anything
Plug in to your hardware synths and sound modules via 5-pin DIN MIDI output.
