Be More Creative
Novation's 20+ years of innovation in synths and controllers have culminated in Impulse: a flexible keyboard controller designed to make you more creative in your studio productions and on stage. Tough enough to handle the most demanding live situations, you can simply plug Impulse into Mac or Windows and get started straight away, without the need for a power supply.

Mix and sculpt your sound using smooth knobs, chunky faders and precision buttons that work seamlessly in your music making software. Roll beats, arpegiate chords and launch clips using large velocity-sensitive drum pads. Impulse's MIDI connections mean you can also control the rest of your plug-ins, instruments and effects, including Native Instruments, Waves, FXpansion and Garage Band.

It also includes an impressive library of free samples from Loopmasters and the Novation Bass Station software plug-in, which recreates the sound of our legendary analogue bass synthesizer. Impulse also gives you instant hands-on control of other major music software, including:

Create Beautifully Expressive Performance

Produce Music Even Faster
Integration with major music software allows you to produce electronic music even faster in Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, Reason, Cubase and Sonar. Sculpt your sound and mix with ease using smooth knobs, chunky faders, precision buttons, and a custom LCD screen, whilst controlling your plug-ins, instruments and effects, such as Native Instruments, Waves and FXpansion.

Do More with Your Drum Pads
Create unique sequences and rhythms using pressure-sensitive drum pads to trigger arpeggios, launch clips, and warp and roll beats. These pads also function as multicoloured clip launchers, so you can tell whether clip is loaded (yellow), playing (green), or recording (red). 

Connect to Just About Anything
Its rugged and professional build quality makes Impulse tough enough to handle the most demanding live situation. Simply plug in and play on Mac or Windows without the need for a power supply. MIDI I/O means you can connect to the rest of your production gear, too.

Make Music Straight Out of the Box
Impulse comes complete with Ableton Live Lite, the music production and performance software favored by countless leading artists around the world. It also contains an impressive collection of production-ready samples from highly-esteemed sample boutique, Loopmasters.

Add Some Character
Impulse controllers include Bass Station software, the virtual version of the iconic analogue synth.  Bass Station’s combination of warm oscillators and fat analogue filters creates distinctive sounds that add character to your music productions.
