Novation Impulse 49 USB MIDI Controller keyboard
The Novation Impulse 49 is a professional USB/MIDI controller with a 49 note keyboard, drum pads and full control surface functionality. It also comes with a brand new version of Novations award-winning Automap control software, which makes getting hands-on with your DAW/plug-ins fast and simple. The ultra-responsive keyboard is semi-weighted with aftertouch and the 8 drum pads are backlit allowing you to roll beats, warp arpeggios and launch clips in Ableton.
The ultra-responsive 49 note keyboard is semi-weighted with aftertouch so it feels like a musical instrument. Impulse 49 enables highly expressive playing styles due to its high scan-rate. This means it sends very accurate information about your playing style to your music software, translating subtle differences in dynamics extremely effectively. You can add further character to your performance with the pitch and modulation wheels. The 8 drum pads are perfect for sketching beats and triggering samples, but they do so much more: All 8 are back-lit with multi-coloured LEDs which means they can step through arpeggiator sequences, allowing you to warp and change the pattern in real time! There is also a beat roll function, which enables you to improvise with drum patterns on the fly. In addition to this, the drum pads can be used to trigger clips in Ableton Live. They light up yellow if a clip is loaded, green if it is playing and red if it is set to record.
Impulse 49 is designed to give you full hands-on control of your music-making software. The knobs, faders and buttons give you control over your DAW's mixer as well as plug-in instruments and effects. The included Automap control software has been designed solely to connect hardware controls to your software – even VST/AU/RTAS instruments and effects that don't come bundled with your DAW. The large custom LCD screen shows important information about what you are controlling and Impulse 49 has transport buttons that allow you to play, stop, record, loop and move forwards and backwards in your software.
Impulse 49 can be USB powered from your computer or, if you want to power it independently, you can use a simple USB power adapter (not included). There are expression and sustain pedal inputs on the rear panel and it has MIDI in and out ports so you can use it as a USB-MIDI interface. This means that you can control external MIDI instruments with Impulse 49 and you can also use it to enable your music software to trigger external MIDI instruments.
Cakewalk Z3TA+ 2 Software Synth
The Cakewalk Z3TA+ is back and it comes in a new and improved form. This classic waveshaping software synthesiser features new filters, modulatable waveshapers, flexible effects, expressive control and a redesigned interface. The Cakewalk Z3TA+ 2 is a powerful synthesiser, capable of creating breathtaking electronic sounds. This software synth is a must for all Electronic, Trance and Dance producers.
The Cakewalk Z3TA+ 2 comes with thousands of expertly crafted sounds and numerous overall improvements. With 14 dual-stage filter types, a massive Modulation Matrix, a highly flexible FX section and 16 Waveshapers for each of its 6 Oscillators, the sound design possibilities are virtually limitless. The Z3TA+ 2 features 1000 new patches, expertly crafted by a carefully selected design team – some of which designed the original Z3TA+ patches, which are also included.
The Sound of a Classic, Only Better
The Z3TA+ 2 has a wealth of new sound design capabilities including new filter types, new waveshapers, new modulation destinations and a revamped effects section. The Cakewalk Z3TA+ 2's effects section features easy routing of all effects and a new, flexible distortion module. The distortion module includes the new Hypertube algorithm and can effect the filter busses, the effects section, or both.
The Z3TA+ 2 features graphical LFOs, a grapichal arpeggiator and graphical envelopes, making understanding how the synthesiser is working extremely easy. New Graphical LFOs clearly show the resulting LFO shapes when morphing between 2 waves and the new Amount fader quickly scales an LFO's intensity. New Graphical Arp provides visual display of Arp patterns, including 100 new patterns and 50 new Gate patterns from Dance MIDI Samples. Instantly apply trance gates to synth pads and leads and increase total Arp flexibility and expression with Humanise and Swing controls. New Graphically Controlled Envelopes feature an improved design and provide visual representation and realtime feedback of all Envelope Generators.
The Z3TA+'s legendary sound engine has been improved with a new Highest SRC algorithm providing smoother, more accurate interpolation of wavetables. Of course, the sound of original Z3TA+ patches have been faithfully preserved.
The Performance Module gives quick, hands-on control of the analogue-simulating Burst and Drift parameters as well as Portamento and in-depth X/Y pad control. New speed control for X/Y Pad adjusts the morphing speed of X/Y co-ordinates.
