For the love of Piano and MIDI, Nektar introduced Nektar impact LX88+. The Impact LX88+ is a unique USB MIDI controller keyboard designed for keyboard players looking for extra reach. It's jam-packed with intelligent, expressive performance control and hooks up automatically to your DAW!

The Impact LX88+ offers 4 velocity curves that gradually increase in dynamics so there is a match for any playing style. If you don't need velocity, 3 fixed velocity levels cater for a consistent output.
The full-size, piano-style keys are covered to protect against dirt and dust while also complementing the Impact LX88+ design. Transpose buttons, as well as pitch bend and modulation wheels, are within reach, so you can quickly shift the keyboard up or down as needed, or apply additional articulation with the wheels.

4 velocity curves and 3 fixed velocity sensitive modes: Get the best piano experience with different velocity sensitive modes. Velocity sensitive modes assure that LX 88+ respond to even the most subtle dynamics of your playing style.
Pitch bend & Modulation wheels: A little whammy is what makes digital device pretty. Nektar LX88+ offers assignable pitch bend and modulation wheels so that you get the liberty to freely play around.
Transpose shift buttons: Easily and quickly shift the octave up or down.
Eight potentiometers, Nine 30mm faders, Nine assignable buttons: Nine 30mm faders, 9 MIDI buttons, and 8 encoders are at the center of Impact LX88+'s control panel. Each control is fully programmable to send any MIDI CC message for use with hardware or software MIDI products.

Split, Layer, and Transpose: The Impact LX88+ keyboard can send on up to 3 zones at the same time. Press Layer to add the layer zone and split to add the split zone. When split or layer is active, the corresponding LED button is lit so there is no confusion. Each zone can be programmed to send on its own unique MIDI channel with essential settings either pre-programmed or adjustable during the performance. Transpose buttons help you shift octaves on the fly.
Mixer Mode: Press mixer and the first 8 Impact LX+ faders are assigned to control 8 channels of your DAWs 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 and can control Mute or Solo with LED's clearly indicating the current status. Pan for the group of 8 channels controlled by the faders is handled by the 8 pots. Fader 9 is used for control volume of the current mixer channel as well as master volume.
Instrument Control: The Instrument button assigns all controls to instrument parameters once an instrument track is selected in your DAW. Nektar mapping ensures this is done automatically, so you can start tweaking immediately. Better still, many devices and plugins are pre-mapped to match the blue control labels on the Impact LX88+.
The Page Button: With Nektar DAW Integration, a page button allows you to switch between Default settings and User settings with LEDs clearly indicating which page is active. Each page changes assignments of the 8 pots, leaving the User page for example for your own assignments.
User Preset and MIDI Programming: If you mainly want to use your DAW's MIDI learn features, Impact LX88+ is easy to come to grips with. There are 2 non-overlapping, read-only presets on the Mixer and Instrument buttons so you can quickly switch between independent and unique setups. These presets are also used for Impact LX88+'s integrated DAW support.

A common workflow gives access to many of the functions you are most likely to need when recording and performing with your Impact LX88+.
