Description

Designed for keyboard players and live performers, the Nektar GXP88 is an 88-note USB MIDI keyboard controller with instant access to performance controls including a real-time repeat engine, powerful Nektarine plugin patch management, and Nektar DAW integration. Well suited for studio and stage, the slim-line control panel is based on the Impact GX series, enabling advanced DAW integration with extended transport control, track selection and volume control, as well as options to open and close DAW windows and navigate songs. Additionally, the GXP88's user interface has 14 assignable illuminated RGB buttons for direct MIDI program and bank selection.

The Key Repeat function adds an innovative real-time tool for creating inspirational rhythms and patterns. Direct control is provided from the controller's illuminated RGB buttons. Use Key Repeat for real-time control over repeat rates, and control any parameter from accents and swing to internal routing, and from aftertouch, to modulation and velocity. Additionally, a second encoder controls tempo (unless synchronization is set to external MIDI clock).

With the included Nektarine 2.0 software, the GXP88 provides a powerful master keyboard functionality with the ability to control 16 VST or AU instrument plugins, and customize, save, and load individual or complete multi-patch sets instantly. Using the GTXP88 also provides advanced controls such as keyboard zones, layers, and splits for all hosted plug-ins. Nektarine can run as a VST, AU, or AAX plugin in any compatible DAW or be used as a standalone application.

The GXP88 includes full DAW support integration with Bitwig, Cubase, Digital Performer, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason, Sonar, and Studio One. The keyboard is bus-powered or can be powered by an optional 9 VDC power supply. The GXP88 ships with a USB cable, a copy of Cubase LE, and the Retrologue synthesizer.
