Enhance your workflow with a host of powerful real-time and intuitive control features that inspire your creativity: No menu-diving, tactile control, two arpeggiators, drum pads, mini-keys that are great to play – and of course Nektar DAW integration.

IMPACT-LXMINI Keys

Midi Keyboard

IMPACT-LXMINI features our newly developed keybed with 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keys. Play them expressively as they have a defined and firm feel. With a choice of 4 velocity curves and 3 fixed values, you can tailor the keyboard response to your playing style. Dedicated Octave buttons let you shift the octave swiftly for a wider reach. Additionally, use the Part 2 buttons for transposing.

Joystick

Midi Keyboard

IMPACT-LXMINI’s joystick is 4 modulation controls in one: Left/right controls pitch bend, the upwards axis is preassigned to control modulation and the downwards axis is set to foot pedal control. In fact, the lever’s push button sends the foot pedal at max. level. Up, Down and the push button are freely assignable to any MIDI CC# number.

Footswitch

Midi Keyboard

IMPACT-LXMINI even has a footswitch socket for connecting a sustain pedal, a feature often missing on mini-keyboards. Specifically, connect any standard sustain pedal to the 1/8” mini socket (an adapter from 1/8” to 1/4″ is included). Polarity is detected automatically on boot-up, and it is freely MIDI CC#-assignable.

Transport

Midi Keyboard

Control any MIDI music software from IMPACT-LXMINI’s 7 Transport buttons. All buttons are MIDI-assignable, with the shift button doubling the number of assignments to 14. Furthermore, with Nektar DAW integration, you even get a third control level for a total of up to 21 functions – all pre-mapped for instant use.

Knobs

Midi Keyboard

The 8 knobs on the IMPACT-LXMINI give you instant access to arpeggio, instrument or MIDI CC# parameters. Furthermore, the Instrument, Internal and Arp/Repeat mode buttons instantly assign the panel to the corresponding features. The Page button doubles the number of assignments.

Pads

Midi Keyboard

IMPACT-LXMINI helps you create expressive grooves and beats with its 8 velocity-sensitive pads. They offer a hyper-sensitive and even response, ideal for finger-drumming. Specifically, you can set assignments in seconds and store them in 4 pad mapsMidi Keyboard

IMPACT-LXMINI Arpeggiator & Note Repeat

Two independent Arp/Repeat engines (one for keys and one for pads) with instant parameter access will inspire exciting synth and percussion lines. Once selected and activated, the Arp/Repeat engine parameters are available on the 8 knobs: Rate, Swing, Accent Level, Interval, Tempo, Arp Modes and Arp Octave can be changed in real-time.

Double Up: PART 2

Part 2 is a unique performance feature for momentary setup changes: While playing, press one of the dedicated “Part 2” buttons to momentarily shift the octave up or down, transpose, layer another octave on top, switch to another MIDI channel altogether – or any combination of these features.

The instant you let go of the buttons, IMPACT-LXMINI reverts back to its original settings. What’s more, any note that was played prior to pressing “Part 2” will keep playing at the original settings – so you could play and hold some really low bass notes, while playing a solo over the top.

Midi Keyboard

Nektar DAW Intergration

Simply install the Nektar DAW Integration package for your DAW and start controlling essential tasks right from IMPACT-LXMINI’s transport section. Also, improve your workflow with extended transport control including goto/set locators on the fly, navigate tracks & projects, launch windows or select patches without ever reaching for the mouse.

Tweak Your Instruments

IMPACT-LXMINI has a dedicated Instrument Mode button that switches the knobs to control instrument parameters in most DAWs. Furthermore, the added screen printing to make it easy to remember assignments. Use Osc Tune, Level, Mod 1, Mod 2, Cutoff, Resonance, Envelope Amount and LFO. After that, use the Page button for assigning two parameters to each knob for a total of 16.

DAW Included: BITWIG 8-TRACK

Additionally, start producing, performing, and designing sounds like a pro from day one with the included Bitwig 8-Track. In fact, it gives you access to over 50 software instruments and effects for use on up to 8 audio or MIDItracks. Also, included is support for any 3rd party VST plug-ins you might own.
