Take control of your DAW with the Nektar Impact LX61+ USB MIDI controller. Based on their award-winning Panorama, Nektar’s Impact LX61+ uses intelligent mapping to give you hands-on control over your session immediately. Switch between Mixer, Instrument, and Preset modes for a fast workflow. The labeled faders and encoders show default instrument parameter assignments, helping you keep your eyes off your computer screen. The Impact LX61+’s 61 synth-action keys give you a smooth, precise feel, as do its pitch and mod wheels. In fact, all controls on the LX61+ – including the knobs, faders, and performance pads – feel great.

The keyboard controller done right
The Impact LX61+’s 61-note velocity-sensitive keyboard sports a silky synth action with medium tension. This makes it perfect for playing just about any type of part. To suit your playing style, you get four velocity curves that gradually increase in dynamics. For certain types of synth parts requiring consistent output, there are three fixed velocities. Pitch bend and modulation wheels are properly placed to your left, with the octave and transpose buttons above them.
Ample control capabilities
Nektar hit it big with their Panorama range. Now they’ve done it again – at a more affordable price. The streamlined Impact series of controllers offers intelligent mapping and tight integration with most popular DAWs, preset mixer and plug-in modes, transport and navigation controls, MIDI programming capabilities, and five user presets.
