Novation has a wide selection of controllers, ranging from a tiny, simple Nocturn, and ending with the flagship Remote SL. The new Impulse line consists of 3 instruments, which includes Novation Impulse 49. It is suitable for both studio and live performances. It is a USB-powered MIDI controller, which can be fully integrated with any workstation (DAW) using the supplied software Automap 4.

Impulse 49 is full of useful features. There are 8 knobs, 9 faders, 8 backlit drum pads (which can be freely customized and reassigned), modulation/pitch wheels, transport controls for manipulation in DAW, and 9 assignable solo/mute switches. The 49-note semi-weighted keyboard is one of the highlights. As a bonus in this price category aftertouch is featured.

Impulse 49 offers MIDI input/output, a USB connector for MIDI, as well as jacks for sustain and expression pedals. The blue backlight screen displays constantly updated data to show the controller assignments or the parameters involved. An excellent addition is the arpeggiator with 6 modes, which can be synchronized with the tempo of the DAW.
