COMPETITION NOW CLOSED: In our latest competition in association with our good friends at Nektar, we’re offering a lucky entrant the chance to win the Impact LX+ 88 key keyboard controller while a runner up will get their hands on the 61 key version of the same controller, dubbed ‘The ideal performance controller’ The Impact LX+ 88 retails at £269.99 (€307.41) while the 61 goes for a not inconsiderable £169.99 (€193.53)

Here’s a bit of background on the Nektar Impact LX+ MIDI controllers: In this competition you have a chance to win the 88 and 61 key versions! Both feature deep DAW integration with plenty of knobs, faders and 8 backlit velocity sensitive drum pads – but the 88-key version also includes Layer & Split mode for the keyboard, can send on up to 3 zones at the same time and offers a physical MIDI-out socket.

Official Info:

• Plenty of knobs: Nine 30mm faders, nine MIDI buttons and eight encoders.

• Pads: 8 velocity-sensitive backlit pads with 4 colour LED illumination. “Pad Learn” feature which allows you to select a pad, select the required sound by playing it on the MIDI-keyboard – assignment done! No complex menus…

• Instrument mode assigns all controls to instrument parameters once an instrument track is selected in your DAW. Many devices are pre-mapped to match the blue synthesiser control labels on the Impact LX+. Another nice detail: The faders may be flipped into drawbar mode to control your virtual organ.

• Quick grab feature to assign instrument parameters on the fly, including faders, buttons and 2 page assignments. Of course those assignments can also be saved into maps at the click of a button.

• Soft-Takeover for many supported DAWs eliminates parameter jumping. Display indicates whether parameter should be moved up or down to take over parameter value.

• Control settings may be stored in 5 on-board presets for recall at any time
