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!

A wonderful gift!


I just gave this Nektar Impact LX25+ USB Midi Controller to my eleven-year-old grandson who is a budding musician and computer whiz. I am amazed how quickly with my son's help, he was able to turn on his creative talents. He plays the piano and the saxophone with mild interest. But this device excited him so much that he told me multiple times how much he liked it. He was able to create a new piece of music with multiple layers of sound including voice. It was a blast. The whole family got in the act.

Impact LX25 I LOVE IT!!


This is a fairly priced piece to have right next to your Maschine!! The drum pads are really great! hard and soft hits come out as you choose. Got this working with Logic Pro X! The setup was easy as this unit comes prepped for most DAWs!

Again, Mark always goes above and beyond. He knows his stuff and stands behind the products he sells. If he were to leave I would honestly go back to guitar center



I will always buy from Sam Ash.


Good price! Awesome customer service! Haven't had time to use it.



Take my Word, Buy These Speakers!


What can I say..... these are amazing! The monitors have upped my game for in home recording. Built with ribbon tweeters these speakers are great for long session without running into pesky ear fatigue!



A must have for home studios or the on-the-go producer!


This Midi Controller is perfect for those that need a controller that can seamlessly integrate with most DAWs. It has what they call "Nektar DAW Integration" which auto maps most if not all (depending on DAWs) commands to the drum pads and keys as well as feature specific (depending on DAW) commands. The supported DAWs for the integration are as follows, BitWig Studio, (BitWig has a ton of features for this by the way) Cakewalk by Bandlab, (Fully featured free daw GET IT, USED TO COST 600 BUCKS) CUBASE, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBamd, Gig Performer, Live, Logic Pro, Mainstage, Mixcraft, Pro Tools, Reaper, Reason, Samplitude, Studio One, and more. The build quality is really good for the price you are paying. The keys feel really nice, and they are full sized which is very rare for a 25 key controller. This thing is feature rich and class compliant so no need for drivers, just plug in and play. The controller comes with a free copy of BitWig 8 Track which sounds limiting but the way BitWig works, 8 tracks is enough for a quality sounding song. You can have multiple clips in one track with BitWig so one track can do alot for you. Its not free its an actual copy that comes with 1 year of free updates so its worth looking into. The controllers clips and scenes buttons dont see much use at all in other daws but BitWig and Ableton. I do think that anyone who gets this controller should use the code and get BitWig because its so seamless you will be up and running in literally seconds. No matter what DAW you decide to go with there is a user manual that shows you all about how to setup and use this controller in your DAW that you download from their website. The pads feel amazing, and with about 4 velocity curves and 3 fixed curves they can be enjoyed by anyone. This controller can also be used as a generic midi controller which means if they do not have integration for your DAW (highly unlikely as I didn't include all of the available DAWs) your still good.



A marriage made in heaven for Reason users!!!


I love it!!! Doesn't take long to synch with your software. Huge keys which is a big plus for me!!! A must for Reasons DAW



Make an Impact with Nektar and the IMPACT LX25 Plus


The Impact LX25 reminds me of the AXIOM by M Audio and this was why I got it. Easy to register and get going without a CD. You get the program from the web. So far I'm happy with this controller the keys do feel good and that's the most important thing. I do notice the knobs move fairly easy so I would be careful when handling it. I would be carefull eating or drinking around the keyboard and would find something to cover it. It does have places where dust, hair and particles may get into. But I am very happy with this controller. Thank You -RogueRockMusic NYC



I would buy this product again


Very close to the Necktar P4 in terms of controlling your DAW. Great little keyboard and I would certainly recommend.

Simple and great


This MIDI controller is super nice for the price. Super easy to set up and Super durable. If its just making some beats and Ideas, or full on making a record, depending on your skill level this can be a great tool. The keys are easy to press and doesn't really strain after long use and the Pads are super responsive.
