Nektar GX49 MIDI Keyboard
The Nektar GX49 is a dynamic and expressive 49 Key MIDI Keyboard. Designed to give you the creative freedom & flexibility to compose and perform with your preferred music software. The 49-key (4 octave) controller features ‘realistic feel’ keys with velocity sensitivity, transport controls, and both a mod & pitch wheel. Further more, the octaves can be transposed up or down to give you a full range of notes.
Designed from the ground up to help improve your creative workflow, with a familiar Keyboard style layout. And is compatible with most commonly used DAWs thanks to Nektar’s DAW Integration technology.
The Impact GX49 and GX61 are dynamic and expressive instruments, tailored to composition & performance with your computer music system. The no-fuss interface is a great entry into the world of Nektar controllers.
Eight buttons intended for DAW control, are at the center of the Impact GX. Essential tasks like transport activation or navigating tracks are highly repetitive and reaching for the mouse every time, can kill any seed of inspiration. Used with Nektar DAW integration, the 8 buttons extend functionality to include control over transport and a host of other important DAW functions, right from Impact GX.
The buttons can also be assigned to MIDI messages for use with any MIDI software that’s not supported by Nektar DAW Integration. A primary and a secondary message can be programmed for each of 7 buttons, delivering 14 programmable options total.
