GX MINI: ESSENTIAL CONTROL WITH THE NEKTAR EXTRA

GX Mini Keyboard

GX Mini features our newly developed velocity-sensitive keybed with 25 mini keys. Despite their miniscule dimensions, you can play them expressively with a defined and firm feel. You can also adjust the keyboard response to your playing style by choosing from three velocity curves. 

GX Mini Joystick

Control pitch bend, modulation and other real-time MIDI messages with the Joystick. The left/right axis is assigned to pitch, the up/down axis is pre-assigned to modulation and foot controller but is also assignable to other MIDI CC-messages.

GX Mini DAW Control

Control your DAW from GX Mini: Eight dedicated buttons put essential DAW functions right at your fingertips. Give your mouse a break and control transport, track navigation and other features with Nektar DAW Integration for most popular DAWs. The buttons are also MIDI assignable for use with any software that’s not supported.

GX Mini Part2

On a keyboard with just 25 keys, you are bound to hit the range limits. This is where Part Two comes in: While playing, simply press one of the dedicated “Part 2” buttons and momentarily shift the octave up or down, transpose, layer another octave on top – or switch to another MIDI channel altogether. The instant you let go of the buttons, Impact GX Mini reverts back to its original settings. What’s more, any note that was played prior to pressing “Part 2” will keep playing at the original settings – so you could play and hold some really low bass notes, while playing a solo over the top. A great performance feature!

GX Mini Sustain Pedal

GX Mini even has a footswitch connector, so you can connect a sustain pedal. As it is programmable, you can assign any other  MIDI CC message as well. 

NEKTAR DAW INTEGRATION:
GIVE YOUR MOUSE A BREAK!

Install Nektar DAW Integration and the 8 buttons right above the Joystick let you take control of essential tasks in your DAW right from Impact GX Mini. Most major DAWs are covered, including Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, FL Studio and Studio One. Also included is a template setup for Pro Tools.
DAW integration features cover extended transport control including goto and set locators, track navigation, launching windows and patch navigation – without ever reaching for the mouse.
