The Impact LX25+ MIDI Controller is compact and portable, yet jam-packed with intelligent and expressive performance control. Ever wanted a controller that hooks up automatically to your DAW? Yeah, Impact LX25+ does exactly that and more..!

With Nektar DAW Integration custom designed for Bitwig, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One, Nektar takes the Impact LX25+ way beyond functionality normally offered by a USB MIDI controller keyboard.

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 are calibrated to trigger at a light touch, so 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!

And 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.

With Impact LX25+ the hard work is done, so you can focus on your creativity!

Amazing Controller

I've fallen in love with Nektar series ever since we got them in stores. Nice and light weight but has a very sturdy feel to it. It works with any recording program and can be mapped out very easily. Size make its great for any studio or if you are on the road.

    Amazing piece of equipment. Easily integrates with pretty much any DAW out there. Great feel to the pads and transport controls. Has many features that similar items do not have. I need one!

    Perfect Size Controller

    By 

    from Canoga Park, CA

    Staff Reviewer

    I do record a lot of audio, but occasionally I need to play something in midi for a track. What I really wanted was a transport, which this guy definitely has, but putting 25 keys on it was perfect for my needs and desk space. It doesn't take much room, it's extremely intuitive, and really durable.

      Nektar controllers are some of the best in the world, and this update to the Impact line is no exception. The controller maps easily to any software on the market, and has a build quality that normally demands a price point 3-4 times what it sells for. The addition of the RGB leds to the pads is a nice feature when dealing with programs like Ableton or FL Studio. Highly recommend for anyone need a compact controller with a ton of control.
