The 61 note velocity sensitive keyboard is un-mistakenly synth action with a medium tension. The full-size, piano-style keys are covered to protect against dirt and dust while also complementing the Impact LX design. With 4 velocity curves gradually increasing in dynamics there is choice for any playing style. If you don’t need velocity, 3 fixed velocity levels to caters for a consistent output. Octave and transpose buttons as well as pitch bend and modulation wheels are within reach, so you quickly can shift the keyboard up or down as needed, or apply additional articulation with the wheels. The look of the Nektar is smart and sleek. It’s not bulky, hence portability will not be an issue. Connecting it to the DAW is a breeze. Great product in this price range. The DAW integration feature is the best part of the LX 61. There is more to the 4 Octave & Transpose buttons than meets the eye. 4 functions are selectable on the fly so you can make important changes at any time, even while you play. A key combination makes assignment quick and easy. Choices include sending out MIDI Program Messages, change the Global MIDI Channel or select any of Impact LX’s 5 user presets with either the Octave or Transpose buttons.
