GREATER IMPACT

By

March 18, 2014

Impact-LX61

 

Following the release of the Impact LX 49 controller last November, Nektar has announced 25 and 61 key models respectively – and predictably – called the Impact LX 25 and LX 61. Usually the more keys, the more controls too, and although that’s true here Nektar hasn’t skimped too much on pads and rotary controls, plus transport controls, on the smaller models. A focus on integrating well with DAWs includes an impressive list with Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Digital Performer, GarageBand, Logic Pro, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One. Thankfully, that integration takes a lot of the hard work out of marrying the controller with your preferred software and  includes track and patch navigation as well as button switching between Mixer and Instrument control. Parameters are pre-assigned and have functions for launching the DAWs relevant windows right from the Impact LX. The extensive mapping of transport functions not only includes traditional transport buttons, but also options to set left and right locators/loop points, click on/off plus much more. You can see a full comparison of the three Impact LX models at www.nektartech.com
