OVERVIEW

MIDI controller with detailed DAW integration built in.

The Impact LX25+ is a compact and portable MIDI controller with intelligent and expressive performance control. Built into the Nektar Impact LX25+ is a DAW Integration unprecedented in controllers of its class. It is custom designed for Bitwig, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One, taking the Impact LX25+ beyond functionality normally offered by a USB MIDI controller keyboard. With Impact LX25+ the hard work is done, so you can focus on your creativity. A copy of Bitwig 8-Track is included with your order.

Action
The 25-note velocity sensitive keyboard features synth action with medium tension. The full-size, piano-style keys are covered to protect against dirt and dust while also complementing the Impact LX design. Octave and transpose buttons as well as pitch bend and modulation wheels are within reach, so you can quickly shift the keyboard up or down as needed, or apply additional articulation with the wheels.

Control features
A 30mm fader and 8 pots are at the center of the Impact LX25+ control panel. Each control is fully programmable to send any MIDI CC message for use with hardware or software MIDI products. Used with Nektar DAW integration, the controls take on a life of their own, providing flexible pre-mapped DAW control giving you the best of both worlds. Control settings can be stored in any of the 5 Impact LX25+ presets for recall at any time. And if you switch Null on, any parameter values are stored when you change presets so you avoid parameter jumping.

Pads
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 to 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.

DAW integration
Impact LX25+ 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 LX25+. The best part is that it's all done for you: Simply complete the installation process and start making music! Impact LX25+ DAW integration currently supports Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One. Buttons and controls are labeled so you don't have to remember how they are assigned. That’s why Impact LX25+ is a breeze to use but with enough extra features under the hood to challenge even the most experienced power user.

    Comments about Nektar Impact LX25+:

    I've only had this keyboard a couple of weeks and haven't gotten a chance to spend a lot of time with it yet, but I really like it. The feel of the keys is excellent, the size of the keyboard suits my needs and it seems to be a very well built, solid instrument. I'm really looking forward to exploring all its potential, once I decide which DAW I want to commit to.

      Bought the LX25+ for my home studio. I run Cubase and it was easy to get it up and running. So far it has done everything that Nektar says it does. I am very happy with this purchase.

        Really happy I picked this bad boy up for sure! Good quality keyboard with a heavier feel to it than expected, with nice responsive keyz as well. Very easy to set up with ableton live 9 and compact enough to situate witchin the workstation. Drum pads and pitch fader a sweet bonus on top of everything as well . Would recommend for the producer on the go or a nice addition to the set up .

        Comments about Nektar Impact LX25+:

        I bought the nektar so I could start revising my own music with garageband and so far I love it. It works great, sounds amazing even in my cheap headphones, and even though I get overwhelmed by controls easily I have been able to get the basics down. I'm having trouble understanding some of the controls and how to get them to work but I figure that's because I'm a novice at this stuff. Overall I would recommend this midi.

          Comments about Nektar Impact LX25+:

          The device has pretty good value. There are actually functions available that are undocumented and it is obvious some of these "hidden" functions could prove quite useful with integrating with your own applications. I contacted the manufacturer and they stated that the undocumented are not document because they are proprietary. I guess I will need to reverse engineer some of these functions that use Sysex messages to make thinks happen.
