Nektar Impact GX49-Key MIDI Keyboard Controller
Nektar Impact GX49-Key MIDI Controller
The MID Controller Nektar GX49 Keyboard is a compact, dynamic, and expressive instrument that is tailored for composition and performance with your computer.
The GX49 is packed full of functionality and control. With 49 velocity-sensitive keys, pitch-bend wheel, modulation wheel, and footswitch socket. Two multi-colored octave buttons enable shifting the keyboard range up or down -3/+4 octaves with the LED colors changing to show the exact status, MID Controller Nektar GX49 is well equipped to deliver a great workflow.
Transpose buttons are dedicated to shifting the keyboard range up to +/- 12 semi-tones. These buttons can quickly be re-purposed to change the Global MIDI Channel or send Program messages. Additionally, an assignable potentiometer provides control over any MIDI parameter, by default controls mixer volume.
At the center of the MID Controller Nektar GX49 are eight buttons intended for DAW control. You will no longer need to reach for a mouse every time you want to do the highly repetitive tasks like transport activation or navigating tracks, as these eight buttons can be assigned to do such tasks.
Crafted to give you the best experience with your Nektar hardware, Nektar DAW integration delivers the freedom to create, instead of having to reach for the mouse constantly when you are in the middle of capturing an idea. Once the installation is complete, MID Controller Nektar GX49 offers an extended feature set, normally unavailable on a compact controller. Transport control with the ability to go to and set locators, track navigation, volume control, and launching windows and patch navigation is all available right from MID Controller Nektar GX49.
The GX49 is a low powered USB device, meaning that it works with all USB devices featuring a Class compliant MIDI driver. This includes all versions of Windows from XP and higher, Apple OS X 10.5 and higher plus Linux (as long as a USB MIDI driver package is installed).
Furthermore, you can easily hook up your MID Controller Nektar GX49 keyboard to an Apple iPad using the optional Apple Camera Connection Kit. Of course, the Impact GX is powered by the iPad so you can work away for as long as your iPad remains charged.
