Nektar Impact LX25+ USB MIDI Keyboard Controller, 25-Key

Rock your softsynths with a serious USB MIDI keyboard/controller. The Impact LX25+ is easy to connect to most DAWs -- Nektar already did the work for you.

The Nektar Impact LX25+ goes way beyond functionality normally offered by a USB MIDI controller keyboard, with DAW integration custom designed for Bitwig, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One.

With Impact LX25+, the hard work is done, so you can focus on your creativity. The 25-note velocity-sensitive keyboard is synth-action with full-size, piano-style keys with a medium tension. A 30mm fader and 8 pots are at the center of the Impact LX25+ control panel. Each control is fully programmable to send any MIDI CC message for use with hardware or software MIDI products. For groove and beat creation, Impact LX25+ has 8 velocity-sensitive pads.

Calibrated to trigger at a light touch, finger drumming is suddenly well within reach with a nice and even velocity response. The best part is the "Pad Learn" feature, which allows you to just select a pad, play the note or drum sound you want on the keyboard and assignment is done. The 4 color LED illumination indicates which pad map is currently loaded and can even tell you which type of MIDI message each pad sends. With Nektar DAW Integration, the pads are automatically mapped in for example Reason and Bitwig. The two Clips and Scenes buttons are used in Bitwig to trigger Clips and Scenes.

In Reason, a clever control of Reason's location points create a similar experience with scenes triggering of any Reason song. The 6 dedicated transport buttons are always within reach read more and mapped to control Cycle, Rewind, Forward, Stop, Play and Record. Press Shift to get access to alternate functions such as Goto L, Set L, Set R, Undo, Click and Mode. Dedicated Track up/down and Patch up/down buttons are located below the display.

I am a singer songwriter who just needed a midi controller to interface with cubase so that I could take advantage of the Virtual Instruments.I've only had this thing one day, but I love it. The keys are full size and the resistance they offer is much better than the cheap midi keyboard I had years ago. The build quality is superb...I mean this thing is solid! All keys and pads are velocity sensitive, which is awesome, and the pads even have back-lighting.It might be nice to have another few octaves worth of keys, but I'm thoroughly impressed and satisfied. This thing meets my purpose very well.
