The Novation Impulse 49 USB MIDI controller offers comprehensive control for your digital audio workstation (DAW) with expressive and precise features. It features a highly responsive semi-weighted keyboard with assignable aftertouch for musical expression. The controller includes 9 faders, 8 rotary knobs, 8 backlit performance pads, dedicated/assignable buttons, transport controls, and an LCD screen for efficient DAW and plug-in control.

The semi-weighted keybed of the Impulse 49 is designed to feel like a musical instrument, providing effective communication of musical expression to your DAW. The controller is equipped with multi-function, backlit drum pads that allow for beat rolling, arpeggio warping, clip launching in Ableton Live, and enhanced control over complex DAW setups.

Automap 4 control software provides immediate hands-on access to your DAW and plug-ins, including third-party options like Native Instruments, Waves, or FXpansion. The Impulse 49 also integrates with Ableton Live for control over Scene Launch and Clip Launch using its back-lit drum pads.
