Nektar Impact GX Mini is a small MIDI keyboard with a surprisingly large feature set


The Nektar Impact GX Mini is another affordable, portable controller to consider.


Nektar is assuring plenty of unexpected surprise for your mini MIDI keyboard buck with the Impact GX Mini, a 25-note controller that gives you all the features you would expect from a ‘board of this size and a few that might surprise you.


The mini keys are velocity-sensitive, and you can choose from three velocity curves to suit your playing style. An assignable joystick delivers pitchbend and modulation control, there are octave up/down buttons, and a footswitch can be plugged into the 1/8-inch socket with 1/4-inch adapter included.


In addition, there is also the ‘Part 2’ feature which enables you to make momentary setup changes at the touch of up/down buttons.


Hold one of these down and you can instantly transpose the keyboard, switch it to another MIDI channel or layer a second sound on top of the existing one; let go and you’ll immediately revert to the original configuration. This could be handy, particularly in a performance context.


The Impact GX Mini offers out-of-the-box integration with a slew of big-name DAWs, with the seven transport buttons also being MIDI assignable. A shift button opens up a secondary level, giving a total of 14 accessible button functions.


Compatible with Windows, macOS, Linux and iOS, the Impact GX Mini is also USB class-compliant and USB-powered.


The Nektar Impact GX Mini now  available priced at $49.99/£60/€70.
