The Nektar Impact LX61 MIDI Controller Keyboard features 61 full-size, piano-style keys which are covered to protect against dirt and dust along with complementing the Impact LX design. You can quickly shift the keyboard up and down to fit your needs with the Octave and Transpose buttons along with pitch bend and modulation wheels. The Octave and Transpose buttons can also be used for sending out MIDI program messages, changing the Global MIDI channel or select any of Impact LX's 5 user presets, enabling you to make changes at any time, even while playing.
The 8 velocity sensitive pads are great for creating beats and rhythms. The "Pad Learn" feature allows you to assign each pad to a particular note or drum sound, enabling you to create the beats and groove you want with the notes you desire. No need to worry about your settings, the assignments you make are stored over power cycling so they're ready for you when your turn your system back on. In addition, 4 pad map locations can store your settings for future recall.
Quickly switch between independant and unique setups with the 2 non-overlapping, read-only presets on the Mixer and Instrument buttons, which 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.
