Novation Impulse 49 USB MIDI controller gives you everything you need to control your DAW with expression and precision. Impulse 61 keyboard is specifically designed to let you create truly expressive performances. Ultra-responsive with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, its full-size piano style keys adapt perfectly to any instrument you want to play, including organs, synths and pianos.

All controls work seamlessly with major music software and can be mapped to any parameter. Play drums in real time with pressure-sensitive pads for rolling beats, looping drum samples and designing arpeggios.
