Nektar products are synonymous with DAW integration and the Impact iX49 and Impact iX61 are no exception. The deceptively minimalist appearance hides powerful functionality not even found on more comprehensive controllers. Want to start recording? You can. Need to change sequencer track? You can. How about changing volume for the track you are currently playing? You can.
COVERING THE BASICS
At first glance, the Impact iX is a standard USB keyboard controller with either a 49 or 61 note full-size keyboard, pitch bend, modulation wheel and foot switch. Octave buttons are available any time to shift the keyboard up or down -3/+4 octaves with multi-colored LED indicators showing the exact status. Transpose buttons allow you to shift the keyboard +/- 12 semi tones and an assignable fader provides control over any MIDI parameter.
FEATURES - ON THE BUTTON
Transpose is extremely useful but different situations require different functionality. So it's great to be able to change the MIDI channel or send MIDI Program messages too. The 2 transpose buttons are quickly configured to any of these functions with setting stored over power cycling.
Better still, pressing a key combination change the Octave and Transpose buttons function to send out MMC transport functions so you can activate start, stop and record directly from your keyboard.
TICKING ALL THE RIGHT BOXES
Nektar DAW integration is carefully crafted to give the best experience with your Nektar hardware. And having to reach for the mouse constantly does not help creativity even if your overall needs are basic. We therefore added some of the most important features to the Impact iX including Transpose button assignment for Track or Patch change, volume control for the currently selected track and a special transport mode for Octave and Transpose buttons which allows you to control Play, Stop, Record and Rewind. Impact iX ticks all the right boxes.
A growing list of DAWs supported by Nektar DAW integration now includes: Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One Chart of controllable parameters
CONNECTORS & iPAD CONNECTIVITY
Impact iX keyboards are USB class compliant and therefore don't require a driver to operate. So installation and connection is easy; just plug the keyboard in to a USB port on your computer.
You can also connect an Impact iX keyboard to an iPad using the iPads optional USB camera connection kit. A 1/4" input jack allows you to add a foot switch pedal for sustain or sending MIDI messages.
