Designed for Players - The Nektar Impact GXP88 88-Note USB DAW Controller

The Nektar Impact GXP USB MIDI controller keyboards are designed for players: Experience 88 semi-weighted keys and instant access to performance controls including a real-time repeat engine, powerful Nektarine plugin patch management and Nektar DAW Integration. GXP gives you the keys to a great performance!

  • 88 semi-weighted full-size keys with velocity and aftertouch deliver a nice, firm touch and great playability
  • Different velocity curves to tailor Impact GXP’s keyboard sensitivity to your personal needs
  • Open/close DAW windows and navigate projects and the 14 assignable illuminated RGB buttons allow direct MIDI program- and bank-selection
  • Large pitch bend & modulation wheels and connections for up to 3 optional external pedals
  • 5-pin MIDI out jack and an external power supply socket for powering the unit when not connected via USB
  • Repeat Engine is great for creating inspiring rhythmic elements: Simply press the dedicated Repeat button, play and get inspired
  • RGB buttons now give you direct one-button access to Repeat Rates, Accent, Interval, Swing and routing aftertouch or modulation to velocity
  • Data/Tempo Encoder turns into a dedicated tempo control, unless synchronization is set to external MIDI clock
  • 5 different key trigger modes to change Repeat’s behaviour from interesting arpeggio-style effects with human feel to hard-quantized repetitive rhythms

Your Virtual Keyboard Workstation

Of course you can use Impact GXP like any other standard MIDI controller with all the features you’ve come to expect. But if you install the included Nektarine plugin host and librarian software, you can do a lot more:

Nektarine lets you switch complex setups like on a live keyboard workstation including zones, layers and more; build multipatches from multiple instrument and effects plugins and have them available at the press of a button. Nektarine adds powerful control features for your VST, VST3 and AU instrument plugins to Impact GXP!

Layer and Switch

Impact GXP has dedicated buttons for direct control of patches and plugin slots. This brings true hardware synth-feel to sound selection: Load 10 instrument plugins into Nektarine and make them instantly selectable from the hardware. This includes soloing, layering and realtime switching. And like on a stage piano, you can press multiple slot buttons at the same time for instant layering in any combination.

Browse Your Souds

Nektarine’s browser enables browsing of patches directly from Impact GXP. And factory patches for many popular instrument plugins are available for download from the Nektarine support page to get you started. Your own user patches can also be imported or saved, so over time there will be quite a few patches to choose from in the Nektarine browser. Thankfully, Nektarine has all the tools to help you manage thousands of patches – including patch tagging, search and rating options which make it easy to find exactly the patch you are looking for.

Steinberg Cubase LE

Impact GXP includes licenses for Steinberg’s acclaimed Cubase LE Music Production Software and Retrologue 2 VST synthesizer. So you can start producing music like a pro from day one. To claim your free DAW and virtual synth, register your Impact GXP in your Nektar user account and follow the instructions.
