Overview

The Impact SE49 is a USB keyboard controller with a 49-key, full-size keyboard, pitch bend, modulation wheel and foot switch. Octave buttons are available any time to shift the keyboard up or down -3/+4 octaves with multi-colored LED indicators showing the exact status. Transpose buttons allow you to shift the keyboard +/- 12 semitones and an assignable fader provides control over any MIDI parameter. But there is more to the Impact SE49 than meets the eye.

FEATURES - ON THE BUTTON
Transpose is extremely useful but different situations require different functionality. So it's great to be able to change the MIDI channel or send MIDI Program messages too. The two transpose buttons are quickly configured to any of these functions with setting stored over power cycling. Better still, pressing a key combination change the Octave and Transpose buttons function to send out MMC transport functions so you can activate start, stop and record directly from your keyboard.

INTEGRATION
Nektar DAW integration is carefully crafted to give the best experience with your Nektar hardware. And having to reach for the mouse constantly does not help creativity even if your overall needs are basic. We therefore added some of the most important features to the Impact SE49 including Transpose button assignment for Track or Patch change, volume control for the currently selected track and a special transport mode for Octave and Transpose buttons which allows you to control Play, Stop, Record and Rewind. Impact SE49 ticks all the right boxes.

SUPPORTED DAWs
A growing list of DAWs supported by Nektar DAW integration now includes: Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Digital Performer, FL Studio, GarageBand, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar and Studio One

CONNECTORS & iPAD CONNECTIVITY
Impact SE49 keyboards are USB class compliant and therefore don't require a driver to operate. So installation and connection is easy; just plug the keyboard in to a USB port on your computer. You can also connect an Impact SE49 keyboard to an iPad using the iPads optional USB camera connection kit. A 1/4" input jack allows you to add a foot switch pedal for sustain or sending MIDI messages.

BITWIG 8-TRACK INCLUDED
Bitwig 8-Track is included with SE49 so you can start producing, performing, and designing sounds like a pro from day one. Bitwig 8-Track gives you access to over 50 software instruments and effects for use on up to 8 audio or MIDI project tracks, and you can use any 3rd party VST plug-ins you might own too if you like. The ‘Bitwig Essentials Package’, a highly versatile handpicked selection of loops, clips, and samples, is also included to help you get started. So put all that together and you have a powerful sketchpad for your musical ideas featuring the acclaimed workflow of Bitwig Studio.

Nektar DAW Integration supports Bitwig 8-Track so using SE49 and Bitwig 8-Track together is a fantastic combination. If you are just starting out you will find it’s the perfect way to take your first steps in the world of digital music creation.

Comments about Nektar SE49 49-Key USB MIDI Controller Keyboard:

I use the grooves to create quick backing tracks by recording the midi out notes to a pre assigned midi channels templet I created in Sonar.
Then I can use different softsynths ect. I haven't gotten to combining parts of grooves to save as custom presets yet. It's pretty straight forward. Not as many groove variations as hoped for, only one each.
