    • Nektar Impact LX 49 PRODUCT FEATURES:


      There is more to the 4 Octave & Transpose buttons than meets the eye. 4 functions are selectable on the fly so you can make important changes at any time, even while you play. A key combination makes assignment quick and easy. Choices include sending out MIDI Program Messages, change the Global MIDI Channel or select any of Impact LX's 5 user presets with either the Octave or Transpose buttons. alternate text


      For groove and beat creation Impact LX's 8 velocity sensitive pads makes life easy. Each pad can be assigned any MIDI note number or MIDI cc message, for use as MIDI trigger or toggle buttons. But the best part is the "Pad Learn" feature which allows you to just select a pad, play the note or drum sound you want on the keyboard and assignment is done. No complex menus for a task that's essential for getting the most out of your pads. Assignments are stored over power cycling so you don't lose your settings when you switch your system off for the night. In addition, 4 pad map locations can store your settings for future recall.


      If you mainly want to use your DAWs MIDI learn features, Impact LX is easy to come to grips with. There are 2 non-overlapping, read-only presets on the Mixer and Instrument buttons so you can quickly switch between independent and 
      unique setups. These presets 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.


      Impact LX49 and LX61 software integration supports most of the popular DAWs. A common workflow gives access to many of the functions you are most likely to need when recording and performing with your Impact LX. The best part is that it's all done for you.
