Design

1.Has a display
Novation Impulse 25
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
2.Has backlit LED buttons
Novation Impulse 25
Buttons will light up when pressed, resulting in better visibility to users.
3.height

332mm

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

525mm

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

17430cm³

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

3.5kg

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 octave buttons
Novation Impulse 25
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.
2.Has transpose buttons
Novation Impulse 25
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.
3.Has tap tempo control
Novation Impulse 25
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

21

The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
5.Has an arpeggiator function
Novation Impulse 25
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 transport control section
Novation Impulse 25
The transport controls are used to control playback, set the position of the playhead, start recording, activate the cycle region, or to move to the project start or end.

Keys & Pads

1.Has semi-weighted keys
Novation Impulse 25
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.
2.total keys

25

The amount of keys the controller has on the keyboard.
3.has velocity-sensitive pads
Novation Impulse 25
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.
4.drum pads

8

The pads section is ideal to trigger loops and samples, using your finger drum skills.
5.Has an aftertouch keyboard
Novation Impulse 25
Aftertouch keyboards are sensitive to the pressure applied to keys after the initial impact, and while the keys are being held down or sustained.

Ports

1.Has a MIDI-Out port
Novation Impulse 25
The MIDI-Out port is used for transmitting data.
2.Has an input/connector for the sustain pedal
Novation Impulse 25
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
Novation Impulse 25
Dedicated expression pedals let you have a hands-free control over your keyboard's volume, vibrato, and more.
4.Has a MIDI-In port
Novation Impulse 25
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.

Features

1.MIDI device works and communicates via USB
Novation Impulse 25
Devices can communicate in both directions with each other without any additional MIDI interface. The biggest advantage is that the USB connection can be used for everything; power supply, MIDI-in and MIDI-out. This means you need less cables.
2.Is compatible with Windows
Novation Impulse 25
It is compatible with PCs and laptops running the Windows operating system.
3.Has automapping technology
Novation Impulse 25
With automapping technology it is easier to set up your MIDI device and assign all different controls to your software (DAW).
4.Is compatible with Mac OS X
Novation Impulse 25
It is compatible with Mac OS X devices such as MacBooks and iMacs.
5.Is compatible with iOS
Novation Impulse 25
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
