In 2012 Novation Impulse 61 along with Impulse 25 and 49 appeared on the shelves. It differs from the rest owing to a wider keypad (61 keys). However, other specification remained the same. It is a USB powered MIDI controller, which can be fully integrated with any workstation (DAW) using the supplied software Automap 4. It is suitable for both studio and live performances.

Impulse 61 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 61-note semi-weighted keyboard is one of the highlights. As a bonus in this price category aftertouch is featured. The keyboard supports a 4-zone split function.

In the back of the Impulse 61 are MIDI input / output, a USB connector that is used to transmit and receive MIDI, as well as sockets for the sustain pedal and expression. The visual feedback on the instrument is visible on the screen with a blue backlight, which is constantly updated to show the controller assignments or the parameters involved. An excellent addition is the arpeggiator with 6 modes, which is synchronized with the tempo of the workstation.
