Nice Keyboard

  • Excerpt: I bought this as a gift for my son. He uses it daily, and has since we bought it almost 5 months ago.Gets all of its power over USB. He uses it with a Macbook pro and a 2009 Mac Pro.B&H made a mistake and did not ship the keyboard in an outer carton. The package box was worked over, I was amazed the keyboard wasn't destroyed and it is working fine 5 months later.
  • Pros: Lots of features
  • Cons: A bit pricey

Impulse 61 Rocks It Hardcore

  • Excerpt: I use the Novation Impulse 61 with NI Komplete 9 and Cubase 7 and it is awesome. The ability to either set my controllers or have Automap map them is a great feature and timesaver. Great feel on the keys and pads and intuitive display. Only con is that you have to download a zip file for Cubase 7 from Novation to utilize Automap feature, but once its dragged and dropped or copied to your Steinberg Components file your good to go.
  • Pros: Ready To Play In Minutes
  • Cons: Cubase 7 Needs Download

Solid Controller, Great Price!

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Impulse 61 mainly for plugging chords and melodies into FL Studio 10. The keyboard has a great feeling and is weighted like a dream. All of the faders, rotary encoders, and pads were a breeze to program and have opened my workflow to a whole new level. This is lightyears ahead of drawing directly into your DAW with a mouse or trackpad.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys

Great MIDI Controller

  • Excerpt: I use the product to control Ableton Live and Reason and it is spectacular! It lets me have great hands-on control, the keys are amazingly expressive, the drum pads are great, and sliders are awesome too. This is for sure a great MIDI keyboard and easily compares to any MIDI keyboard out there. One con though is that the encoders are a little loose feeling, but it's not bad once you get used to it.
  • Pros: Amazing Drum Pads, Easy to Use, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
  • Cons: Loose Encoders

  • Excerpt: This is my first keyboard, so there is a learning curve, and I have nothing to compare it to. I have no complaints about the key action, seems very responsive and easy. All the faders and knobs are sturdy and easy to move. Works great under both Logic and Ableton.

Novation Impulse 61 MIDI-keyboard

  • Summary: Vandaag de Novation Impulse 61 met de post ontvangen. Niks over te zeggen. Snelle en correcte levering. Daarna thuis het product uitgepakt en toen begon de teleurstelling al snel. Ik sloot de Impulse aan op mijn Imac en probeerde Logic. Geen connectie. Daarna geprobeerd om de cd-rom te installeren maar deze werd niet gelezen door mijn computer (Imac uit 2011). Na een tijdje uitvogelen kreeg ik het apparaat aan de praat maar het viel mij op dat deze steeds uitviel.
