Impulse is a range of professional USB/MIDI controllers. They each have a precision keyboard and a full control surface powered by a brand new version of Novation's Automap control software - Automap 4 (which makes getting hands-on with your DAW/plug-ins fast and simple). Impulse also has 8 back-lit drum pads which can warp arpeggios, roll beats and launch clips in Ableton live.
Impulse also comes with a stack of free software and sounds:
• Ableton Live Lite - powerful loop based music-making software
• Novation Bass Station - legendary analogue bass synth as a software plug-in
• Loopmasters sample library - over 1GB of royalty-free samples
• Mike The Drummer - 502MB of live drum loops and breaks
