Novation Impulse 25

The Novation Impulse 25 is a 25-note USB-MIDI controller with assignable aftertouch. The synthesizer was designed specifically for performance and features a straightforward interface that renders it more akin to an instrument than most standard MIDI controllers. In terms of front panel controls, the Impulse 25 features eight rotary controls, eight velocity-sensitive drum pads, both pitch and modulation wheels, and a built-in arpeggiator. All of these features make the synthesizer an ideal means of manipulating DAWs, plugins, and virtual instruments. It also ships with automap software that enables instant configuration with any of the previously mentioned components.
