The Impact LX49 will allow musicians to switch between Mixer, Instrument and Preset modes. Presets include 5 memory locations for users to store their own setups. Navigation options include track change, patch change and a Plug-in button that opens or closes the currently controlled plug-in window on the computer display.

Along with 8 velocity sensitive pads that can be used for MIDI and Four pad memory locations that store pad settings for later use. The Nektar Impact LX49 promises to be the ideal solution for a more affordable and feature packed MIDI controller keyboard.
