Great
22.10.2015
This is a great piece of kit for the home studio user. I managed to get this working with Reason DAW in about half an hour (I am not very good with techy stuff). There are three main aspects:
1 The keys are nicely weighted, in Reason I can adjust the velocity of each not played if i need to and the response appears quite accurate.

2 The controllers link well with my channels in the software; which is great. I can adjust channel levels, play stop, record, I am sure I will be able to assign effect parameters when I get a chance.

3 The pads seem good, they are quite sensitive - velocity wise and seem well made enough.

On the whole the body of the unit is well made and substantial, the all round quality seems very good.
I wanted a controller and a keyboard that would work with Reason and this is perfect for me.

Perfect tool with one tiny flaw
Paleosonic, 03.07.2019
I just want to add that Novation did not follow all MIDI standards.
They forgot to provide the 5 volt at pin 4 on one of the MIDI connectors that is needed to power some devices.
To use it with the "Quicco Sound mi.1 Wireless Midi Adapter", I had to solder a simple resistor inside the Impulse 49 to fix this.
