Impulse is Novations ultra-responsive and expressive keyboard with loads of fully assignable controls. Designed for people who love to play keys, it’s a pleasure to play and also integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools and other major music software.


Expressive Keyboard

Novation specifically designed the Impulse 25 keyboard to let you create truly expressive performances. Ultra-responsive with semi-weighted action and aftertouch, its full-size piano style keys adapt perfectly to any instrument you want to play, including organs, synths and pianos.

While you’re playing, unique High Rate Scan (HRS) technology will scan the keyboard 10,000 times per second to capture every nuance of your performance.


Produce Better Music

Mix and sculpt your sound using endless smooth-action knobs, low-profile 45mm faders, loads of buttons and a custom LCD screen. All controls also work seamlessly with major music software and can be mapped to any parameter.


Do More with Your Drum Pads

Play drums in real time with pressure-sensitive pads for rolling beats, looping drum samples and designing arpeggios. These pads also function as multicoloured clip launchers in Ableton Live, so you can tell whether clip is loaded (yellow), playing (green), or recording (red).


Connect To Just About Anything

Impulse is class-compliant and USB bus-powered, so you can simply plug it into Mac or Windows and get started straight away, without the need for a power supply.

Impulse is gig-ready, too; 5 pin MIDI outputs allow you to connect to your favourite synth or module.
