    First-class keyboard

    The Novation Impulse 49's semi-weighted keybed is first-class. Designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer accessory, these keys communicate musical expression to your DAW with an efficacy you never thought possible. That's always been the challenge with MIDI and computer-based music creation - and the Impulse 49 attacks it head-on. The result is better music.

    Iron-fisted, velvet-gloved control

    In addition to the superb keyboard, the Novation Impulse 49's multi-function, backlit drum pads let you roll beats, warp arpeggios, launch clips in Ableton Live, and curb the potential for mayhem that lurks beneath the surface of every complex DAW setup. And with immediate access to your DAW's transport, mixer and plug-ins, you'll enjoy increased productivity and focus, resulting in, again, better music.

    Works with all major DAWS

    The Novation Impulse 49 has been designed and tested to work with all major DAWs and plug-in instruments and effects, including Ableton (Ableton Live Lite comes included with Impulse), Cubase, Logic, ProTools, Reason/Record, Sonar (PC only), FL Studio, Studio One, and Garage Band. Automap 4 control software is the magic that gives you immediate hands-on access to your DAW and plug-ins. In addition, you get Impulse 49 access to your 3rd party plug-in instruments and effects, such as Native Instruments, Waves or FXpansion. In Live, you can even control Scene Launch and Clip Launch using Impulse's back-lit drum pads. The Novation Impulse 49 is one serious controller.

      What Novation Says...

      Impulse is our ultra-responsive and expressive keyboard with loads of fully assignable controls. Designed for people who love to play keys, it's a pleasure to play and integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools and other major music software.

      Our Most Expressive Keyboard

      We specifically designed the Impulse keyboard 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. While you’re playing, our unique High Rate Scan (HRS) technology will scan the keyboard 10,000 times per second to capture every nuance of your performance.

      Produce Better Music

      Mix and sculpt your sound using endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile 45mm faders, loads of buttons and a custom LCD screen. All controls work seamlessly with major music software and can be mapped to any parameter.

      Do More with Your Drum Pads

      Play drums in real time with pressure-sensitive pads for rolling beats, looping drum samples and designing arpeggios. These pads also function as multicoloured clip launchers in Ableton Live, so you can tell whether clip is loaded (yellow), playing (green), or recording (red).

      Connect To Just About Anything

      Impulse is class-compliant and USB bus-powered, so you can simply plug it into Mac or Windows and get started straight away, without the need for a power supply. Impulse is gig-ready, too; 5 pin MIDI outputs allow you to connect to your favourite synth or module.

      Ableton Live Lite comes in the box and integrates seamlessly with all the controls to provide:

      • Mixer control (all channels)
