All eight of Impulse's drum pads are backlit with multi-coloured LEDs, and they operate in different modes, such as following the pattern being played by Impulse's on-board groovebox-style arpeggiator/step sequencer. You can change the pattern in real time and engage a beat roll function, to improvise with drum patterns on the fly. In addition to this, the drum pads can be used to trigger clips in Ableton Live's session view; illuminating yellow if a clip is loaded, green if it is playing and red if it is set to record. You can add further character to your performance with the pitch and modulation wheels.
Impulse is designed to give you complete control of your music-making software. The knobs, faders and buttons put your mixer, instruments and effects at your fingertips, with the convenience of the included Automap control software. Impulse's large LCD screen shows important information about what you are controlling, as you are touching it, and tra nsport buttons provide direct hardware command over your session and easy navigation around your music software.
As well as a precision keyboard, drums pads and a full control surface, your Impulse controller comes with Novation's award-winning Automap control software, for fast and simple DAW and plug-in control. Impulse also comes with Ableton Live Lite, Novation's Bass Station soft synth and a Loopmasters sample pack, giving you all you need to start making music.
Impulse controllers are powered via the computer's USB connection so there is no need for an external power supply or batteries! There are also expression and sustain pedal inputs on the rear panel, as well as a MIDI input and output, so you can use Impulse as part of a larger hardware setup.
