  • Works with all major DAWS

First-class keyboard

The Novation Impulse 25'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 25 attacks it head-on. The result is better music.

Iron-fisted, velvet-gloved control

In addition to the superb keyboard, the Novation Impulse 25'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 25 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 25 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 25 is one serious controller.

I barely use any of the knobs/pads, but it's a great, quality piece of equipment that I don't know what I'd do without.
Music background: I produce various types of music ranging from death metal to dubstep. Guitarist, vocalist, drummer, DJ

Music background: Metal/ industrial

Keyboard fits the bill

Novations Impluse 25 is a perfect match for DAW and Abelton. My son is also using it for his first class on Ableton. even before attending any classes, he began cutting his first tracks, working with many advanced features of this keyboard. It is intuitively laid out and great to use. The arp and roll functions are excellent, the pads have a great feel, and the semi-weighted keyboard has good touch. Tons of features and capabilities in a small package
Music background: Music hobbyist and student.


This is without a doubt the most intense piece of musical equipment I've ever owned. Such a necessity for any producer. If you're in need of a small-ish keyboard with drum pads, knob controllers, and pitch/mod wheels...definitely get this. It makes things so much easier and boosts my work flow tremendously. GET THIS!
