Exacting, Intuitive DAW ControlThe Novation Impulse 61 USB MIDI controller gives you everything you need to control your DAW with expression and precision. At the heart of the Impulse 61 is its highly responsive semi-weighted keyboard with assignable aftertouch. You get full DAW/plug-in control via 9 faders, 8 rotarys, 8 backlit performance pads, an army of dedicated/assignable buttons and transport controls, and an LCD screen to keep you status-savvy. The Impulse 61 also ships with a tidy collection of cool software and sounds. If you have DAW control issues, check out the Novation Impulse 61.
Novation Impulse 61 USB MIDI Controller at a Glance:
The Novation Impulse 61'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 61 attacks it head-on. The result is better music.
Iron-fisted, velvet-gloved control
In addition to the superb keyboard, the Novation Impulse 61'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 61 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 61 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 61 is one serious controller.

If you want absolute DAW control, the Novation Impulse 61 is an excellent choice!

by Javier from San Juan, PRI had being looking for a decent MIDI Controller that could have all the necessary things to create music as fast as possible. The Novation Impulse 61 has everything I wanted; great feeling Keys, touc... read more [+]h pads, parameter knobs, and a relative large mixer (for a keyboard). But the most amazing thing is the Automap software. I configured all the plug-ins and mixer options in Pro Tools 10 in literally 3 minutes. Other controllers, to setup, usually require more time. It's that simple. Highly recommend getting this controller. Every $$ is worth it. Much better than other midi controllers with the same features. close [-]

On top of that programming the trigger pad on this thing is the most logical I ever seen. You hit the controls button find the sound you want on the keys hit that key then hit the pad you want to assign it to. Yes I would highly recommend this to any logic user that needs an all in one real time control set up. Love the product and most of all love the sweet service from sweetwater sound. Love it Love it Love it!!!!!! close [-]

Quality Keyboard - Automap Not so good
by Jared Forkner from San FranciscoThis is a great keyboard controller. The roll/arp functions are huge helps in workflow. I will say tho that the automap software is less appealing. It's clunky.
