3.height

330mm

332mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

990mm

1.08m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

24829.2cm³

48764.16cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.weight

7.71kg

7.9kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Controls & Buttons

1.Has transpose buttons
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
Transpose buttons are used for moving a collection of notes (pitches or pitch classes) up or down in pitch by a constant interval, usually in semitone increments.
2.Has octave buttons
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
The octave buttons are used to shift the keyboard up or down in one octave increments. This extends the range of the keyboard in either direction, which lets you play notes that lie outside the number of keys available.
3.Has tap tempo control
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
A feature on some MIDI devices that allows to adjust tempo in real time based on an external input or by “tapping” a button on the device itself. It is used to allow musicians the flexibility of playing at any desired tempo based on their musical input.
4.number of buttons

45

32

The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
5.Has an arpeggiator function
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
The arpeggiator is the main tool used by computer musicians to generate looped material. An arpeggiator is simply a generator of signals that controls the tempo, pitch, velocity, gate, and other parameters of the sound.
6.Has a bank selector button
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
The button is used to select independent banks of continuous controllers. Effectively, this allows you to control more independent parameters with the knobs, faders and buttons. The bank selector button is used to switch among the available banks.

Keys & Pads

1.Has velocity sensitive keys
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
Velocity sensitive keys are just spring loaded keys that sound out louder the harder you hit them. If you "lightly" press a key, the sound will be quiet; the harder you press, the louder it gets.
2.Has semi-weighted keys
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
Similar to a weighted action keys, but with less resistance and a slightly springier release, semi-weighted keys are popular with many players. If you don’t need realistic piano response, but also don’t care for spring-loaded synth actions, a semi-weighted keyboard might be ideal for you.
3.total keys

61

61

The amount of keys the controller has on the keyboard.
4.has velocity-sensitive pads
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
Velocity-sensitive drum pads allow you to modify the sound sample's pitch depending on how quickly you hit the pads. They provide a more natural audio experience, as the pitch depends on your movement, just like when playing the drums live.
5.Has pressure sensitive pads
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
When pads respond to the amount of force applied after initial impact they are pressure-sensitive. The pads can be used to drum rhythmic elements of a song or to trigger samples, but can also be used to play notes.
6.drum pads

12

8

The pads section is ideal to trigger loops and samples, using your finger drum skills.

Ports

1.Has a MIDI-Out port
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
The MIDI-Out port is used for transmitting data.
2.Has an input/connector for the sustain pedal
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
When pressed, the sustain pedal allows all notes to sound and “vibrate” freely. All notes played will continue to sound until the pedal is released. This is perfect when you need a sturdy and responsive control over sustain.
3.Has an input/connector for the expression pedal
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
Dedicated expression pedals let you have a hands-free control over your keyboard's volume, vibrato, and more.
4.Has a MIDI-In port
Nektar Panorama P6
Novation Impulse 61
MIDI-In Port allows data to be received by a MIDI-compliant device. The “in” port enables the MIDI keyboard to be controlled by an external device or sequencer.
