Novation Impulse 25

Novation’s ultra-responsive, highly expressive 25-key MIDI keyboard hosts a comprehensive array of fully assignable controls, integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, Apple Logic Pro, Avid Pro Tools and other major music software, and is built to be a true player’s instrument.

The Most Expressive Keyboard

In designing Impulse 25, Novation went all-out to create a supremely expressive performance keyboard. Ultra-responsive with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, its full-size piano style keys adapt beautifully to virtual organs, synths and pianos. Novation’s High Rate Scan (HRS) technology ‘reads’ the keyboard 10,000 times per second, capturing every nuance and detail of your performance to an incredible degree of precision.

Produce Better Music

Take control of your mix and sculpt your sounds with Impulse 25’s endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile 45mm faders, plentiful buttons and LCD screen. Each control can be manually mapped to any DAW or plug-in parameter via MIDI.

Do More with Your Drum Pads

Impulse 25’s eight pressure-sensitive, backlit pads are perfect for playing and recording drum and percussion tracks, with Roll mode making light work of automatic note repeats. Going beyond beats, Arp mode uses the pads for real-time arpeggio design, while in Ableton Live, they can even be assigned as multi-coloured clip launchers – yellow for a loaded clip, green for a playing clip, or red for a recording clip.

Connect To Just About Anything

Being class-compliant and USB bus-powered, Impulse 25 only has to be plugged into a Mac or PC to get up and running – no power supply required. It’s gig-ready, too, with a 5-pin DIN MIDI Out port enabling connection to hardware synths and sound modules.

Make Music Straight Out of the Box

A great controller keyboard needs great software to bring it to life, and music software doesn’t get much greater than Ableton Live, the Lite edition of which is included in the box and integrates with Impulse 25’s controls to provide:

• Mixer control (all channels)
• Transport control
• Clip launching (using Impulse 25’s backlit drum pads)
• Scene launching
• Plug-in/Device control

Now expanded from 1GB to a whopping 4GB, the Loopmasters sample library included with every Novation Launch, SL and Impulse keyboard is packed with professional quality, royalty-free loops and one-shots, plus three fully multisampled Simpler-based instruments for Ableton Live 9: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano and Organ.

Encompassing all contemporary genres – from blues, funk and hip-hop to bass, techno and all flavours of house – and taking in a huge range of electronic and acoustic instrumentation, it’s everything you need to start making music today!

Impulse 25 also ships with the Bass Station plug-in, which brings the sound and vibe of Novation’s legendary analogue bass synthesiser to your VST/AU-enabled DAW.  As well as Ableton Live, Impulse 25 integrates with Logic Pro, Cubase, Reason, Sonar, Pro Tools and other major music production applications,
