    Product Description

    Nektar DAW Integration custom designed for Bitwig, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One takes Impact LX25+ way 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.

    The 25 note velocity sensitive keyboard is a synth action, full-size, piano-style keys with a medium tension. 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. For groove and beat creation, Impact LX25+'s 8 velocity sensitive pads.

    Calibrated to trigger at a light touch, finger drumming is suddenly well within reach with a nice and even velocity response. 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. The 4 color LED illumination indicates which pad map is currently loaded and can even tell you which type of MIDI message each pad sends. With Nektar DAW Integration, the pads are automatically mapped in for example Reason and Bitwig. The two Clips and Scenes buttons are used in Bitwig to trigger, Clips and Scenes.

    In Reason, a clever control of Reason's location points create a similar experience with scenes triggering of any Reason song. The 6 dedicated transport buttons are always within reach and mapped to control Cycle, Rewind, Forward, Stop, Play and Record. Press Shift to get access to alternate functions such as Goto L, Set L, Set R, Undo, Click and Mode. Dedicated Track up/down and Patch up/down buttons are located below the display.

    Works great with SONAR Artist! (But not LE versions.)
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've been using Cakewalk SONAR since version 8.5. I was wanting control surface features for mixing and transport controls. When I learned of Nektar's DAW-specific integration software, I sold my Alesis Q25 and paid the difference for the Impact LX25+. It was the only product in its class that promised integration with SONAR. I was disappointed when the Impact LX25+ software for SONAR did not work with my SONAR LE edition. Nektar tech support tried to help, but only upgrading SONAR LE to the current Artist edition solved the problem. Wish I'd known about that up front, but it was worth the cost. By default, the 8 knobs control track level; holding the Mixer button turns the knobs into Pan controls. Basic light-duty synth action keyboard. Pad and key velocity seems a little inconsistent but is easily adjusted. I set all velocity to value of 100. Very happy with my purchase, and paying it off over three months makes the decision that much easier.
