Instantly map the control of your favorite DAW's mixer, transport, effects and more!
SL MkII is the advanced range of USB/MIDI controllers from Novation, designed to give you complete control over your music-making software. Novation worked with each of the main DAWs to make sure each of the 56 knobs, faders and buttons control the things in your software that you need them to control including directly access to your plug-in instruments and FX
Incredible-feeling professional keyboard
Velocity-sensitive, semi-weighted action keyboard with assignable after-touch; the Italian made keyboard mechanism plays like a musical instrument rather than a computer accessory.
Spend more time making music, less time reading user guides
Many MIDI controllers have knobs, faders and buttons, but using them is difficult and time consuming! SL MkII (as with all Novation controllers) comes with Automap control software. This gives you instant mapping to the things you need to control, meaning you can make full use of faders, knobs and buttons on SL MkII to get hands-on with your DAW and plug-ins.
Displays exactly what you are controlling
SL MkII's massive 144-character LCD screen displays information about what each knob, button and fader is controlling. It is large enough to show the name and value of entire rows of knobs, faders or buttons, instantly displaying what each control is assigned to. The screen lines up with controls so you can identify what control is assigned to which bit of your software without having to look at the software GUI.
Back lit, LED-ringed, touch-sensitive controls
Illuminated, intelligent controls provide feedback information about what controls are doing. For example LED rings around encoders tell you the position of your filter cutoff, and back-lit buttons will indicate whether a track is muted or not. Each pot, encoder and fader is touch sensitive so, by simply touching the control, you can bring up information about that entire row of faders on the LCD screen without having to move the control and lose your settings.
Works with all major DAWs, virtual instruments and effects
Novation worked with major music software manufacturers to ensure SL MkII gives you instant hands-on control. In addition to the major DAWs, SL MkII & Automap 4 have been specially designed to give you full control of 3rd party plug-in instruments and effects, like Native Instruments, UAD or FXpansion.
