The Impact 61-Key Keyboard Controller and Bitwig DAW Kit from B&H is a keyboard controller and software package designed to provide robust music creation functionality, versatile control, and smooth integration for producers, musicians, and electronic artists in small- and large-scale production rooms, personal studios, and mobile setups. It includes a Nektar Impact LX61+ 61-key USB MIDI keyboard controller and Bitwig Studio V2 digital audio workstation software.

Bitwig Studio V2 offers multi-track recording with audio, instrument, and audio/MIDI hybrid tracks. Edit tracks individually or in layers, and apply automation on clips and tracks. Multiple clip-launching modes serve looping and live performance workflows. 9GB of content includes a variety of instrument samples, loops, and sound effects. Support for VST and VST3 allows you to use third-party plug-ins such as instruments and mixing effects. Bitwig Studio V2 is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

The Impact LX61+ keyboard controller provides 61 velocity-sensitive keys, eight velocity-sensitive trigger pads, eight control pots, and nine faders. There are modulation and pitch bend wheels, transport controls, and multiple velocity curves. Intelligent mapping allows out-of-the-box support for many popular DAWs including Bitwig.

  • Nektar Technology Impact LX61+ 61-Key USB MIDI Controller Keyboard

    The Impact LX61+ from Nektar Technology is a 61-key, velocity-sensitive USB controller keyboard featuring intelligent mapping, allowing you to manipulate integral aspects of all major DAWs from the controller. Its piano-style keys respond with a medium tension, and four velocity curves are available along with three fixed-velocity levels for instances where consistent output is required.

    Octave and transpose buttons are available, as well as pitch-bend and modulation wheels. Eight velocity-sensitive pads allow you to finger-drum in the MPC style, though each pad can be assigned any MIDI note number or MIDI CC message for use as MIDI-trigger or toggle buttons. This keyboard includes the Bitwig 8-Track DAW for music creation, and allows for optional connection with iOS devices

    Control Center
    Nine faders, nine MIDI buttons and eight encoders line the top of the control panel. Each control is fully programmable to send any MIDI CC message for use with hardware or software MIDI products. Used with Nektar DAW integration, the controls provide seamless but flexible operation over most DAWs. Personalized settings can be stored in any of the five Impact LX+ presets for recall at any time. If you switch Null on, any parameter values are stored when you change presets so you avoid parameter jumping.
    Pads
    For groove and beat creation, this keyboard boasts eight velocity-sensitive pads, calibrated to trigger at a light touch, and suitable for finger-drumming, providing an even velocity response. Each pad can be assigned any MIDI note number or MIDI CC message for use as a MIDI trigger or to toggle buttons. The "Pad Learn" function allows for easy assignment: simply select a pad, play the note or drum sound you want on the keyboard, and the assignment is completed. Assignments are stored over power cycling so you don't lose your settings when you switch your system off. In addition, four pad-map locations can store settings for future recall.
    Mixer Control
    Press mixer and the first eight faders are assigned to control the eight channels of your DAW's mixer. The alternate Bank up/down function moves control assignments to the next or previous group of 8 channels. The 9th fader is assigned to the currently selected channel so you always know where to find it. The buttons under the faders follow the channel assignment of their corresponding fader, controlling Mute or Solo and Pan (via eight associated pots). Fader 9 is used for control volume of the current mixer channel as well as master volume. The MIDI controller also offers shortcuts for opening and closing your DAW's mixer window.
    Connectivity and iOS Capability
    As a low-powered USB device, this keyboard works with all USB devices that feature a Class-compliant MIDI driver. You can also hook the keyboard to an Apple iPad using the iPad's optional USB camera-connection kit (available separately).
    Includes Bitwig 8-Track
    Bitwig 8-Track is included with your purchase, giving you access to over 50 software instruments and effects for use on up to eight audio or MIDI tracks, and providing third-party plug-in support as well. Bitwig also offers a selection of loops, clips, and samples.
    Many DAWs Supported
    Supports multiple DAWs right out of the box including Reason, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, GarageBand, Sonar, Bitwig, Reaper, FL Studio, Studio One, Digital Performer (installation required).
    Other Notable Features

  • Bitwig Studio V2 - Music Creation System for Mac, Windows, and Linux (Boxed)

    Featuring an intuitive layout that adapts to each step of an artist's workflow, Bitwig Studio V2 - Music Creation System for Mac, Windows, and Linux offers a significant update to the production and performance DAW designed for the electronic and recording musician. Upgrades to the software include a re-conceptualized modulation system with over 25 added modulators, 17 new devices (audio, note and hardware), updated remote control facilities, dynamic displays, and better hardware integration with improved MIDI handling and editor workflows.

    Bitwig's recording environment utilizes an object-based system for editing tracks, clips, virtual instruments, effects, and individual notes. Built-in parameter spectrographs provide visual feedback of how setting changes influence parameters such as gain, velocity, panorama and more. In addition to the traditional linear multi-track recording view, the software offers an arranger clip launcher for experimenting with non-linear looping while producing and a mixer clip launcher view for live performance.

    The program supports audio tracks with time stretching and transient detection, instrument tracks with per note micro-pitch control, and hybrid tracks that can accept both audio and MIDI instrument information. This enables bouncing note clips to audio in place and slicing audio to send to a sampler or drum machine. Multiple tracks can be edited simultaneously using layered editing, and automation can be applied at both the clip and track level. A suite of virtual instruments is included, as well as full support for 32-/64-bit VST and VST3 plug-ins. Each plug-in is opened as a separate process to prevent Bitwig Studio from crashing in case the VST plug-in crashes. A "Unified Device System" allows any device parameter, nested device, or plug-in to be modulated with macro controls, LFOs, note expressions, and envelope followers, as well as hardware parameters.

    Workflow enhancements include multi-monitor support for up to 3 monitors. The 9GB factory content includes 2,000 presets and sounds, such as drum machines (808, 909, percussion), acoustic drums, multi-sampled instruments (Wurlitzer, Rhodes, vibraphone, marimba, acoustic and electric bass), instrument loops, various sound effects, and an Artist Collection Package. A context-based pop-up browser system allows for simple tagging and searching for music content. The software supports many popular MIDI devices out of the box, such as full integration with Nektar's Panorama and Impact controllers, and also provides an open-source JavaScript API for programming controller functionality.
