Compact, Control, Creativity
If it's time to get a USB midi controller keyboard that fits on your desk then the NECTAR IMPACT LX49 could really suit your needs.
The keyboard features 8 velocity sensitive trigger pads, 49 velocity sensitive notes, dials and octave controllers all in easy reach.
Impact LX49 feels, looks, performs and is supported like a class act.
DAW integration with most of the popular DAWs makes it easy to get going and a breeze to set up.
With Impact LX49 the hard work is done*, so you can focus on your creativity.
The 49-note velocity sensitive keyboard is un-mistakenly synth action with a medium tension.
The full-size, piano-style keys are covered to protect against dirt and dust while also complementing the Impact LX49 design.
With 4 velocity curves gradually increasing in dynamics there is choice for any playing style. If you don't need velocity, 3 fixed velocity levels to caters for a consistent output.
Octave and transpose buttons as well as pitch bend and modulation wheels are within reach, so you quickly can shift the keyboard up or down as needed, or apply additional articulation with the wheels.
OCTAVE & TRANSPOSE BUTTONS
There is more to the 4 Octave & Transpose buttons than meets the eye. 4 functions are selectable on the fly so you can make important changes at any time, even while you play.
A key combination makes assignment quick and easy. Choices include sending out MIDI Program Messages, change the Global MIDI Channel or select any of Impact LX49's 5 user presets with either the Octave or Transpose buttons.
For groove and beat creation Impact LX's 8 velocity sensitive pads makes life easy. Each pad can be assigned any MIDI note number or MIDI cc message, for use as MIDI trigger or toggle buttons. But 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.
No complex menus for a task that's essential for getting the most out of your pads. Assignments are stored over power cycling so you don't lose your settings when you switch your system off for the night. In addition, 4 pad map locations can store your settings for future recall.
USER PRESETS & PROGRAMMING MIDI
If you mainly want to use your DAWs MIDI learn features, Impact LX is easy to come to grips with.
There are 2 non-overlapping, read-only presets on the Mixer and Instrument buttons so you can quickly switch between independent and
unique setups. These presets are also used for Impact LX's integrated DAW support.
In addition, 5 user presets are programmed for GM compatible and "learn-friendly" setups plus they can of course be overwritten with your own settings.
With the Impact LX's "Null" function switched to on, parameter values are stored when you switch between presets so you avoid parameter jumping.
