Product Description

Novation's 25 SL Mk II has been designed to give you complete control over your music making software. SL MkII can directly control your plug-in instruments and FX (you also get an Italian made, semi-weighted keyboard mechanism). SL MkII comes with Automap, a piece of software that has been designed to make the job of assigning your hardware controls to various software parameters quick and easy. Automap enables knobs, faders and buttons to instantly control plug-in instruments/FX, as well as your sequencer's mixer, transport controls and more. Open a plug-in instrument/FX, and you have instant access to all the plug-in parameters. This allows you to assign knobs, faders and buttons, by simply clicking on the software parameter, and touching the control.

Since Novation was born back in 1992, the company name has become synonymous with world-class analogue modeling synthesizers and unrivalled MIDI controller keyboards and solutions. The product range continues to receive critical acclaim from the music press and win numerous awards for outstanding technology and usability. Fantastic build quality, true musical instrument feel and intuitive controls are just three of the reasons why Novation's digital musical instruments are simply a joy to play. To keep products up to date and in tune with the user's needs, Novation continually provides improved operating systems and brand new software available for download. OS updates are fueled and inspired by suggestions from existing users, so comments about Novation products are actively encouraged.

Works with Your Sequencer

SL MkII will give you transport and mixer control in all major DAW/sequencers. You can also get instant control of external plug-in instruments/FX (like Native Instruments and FXpansion which are not included with your DAW). SL MkII will also give you instant control over major DAWs own plug-in instruments/FX: Ableton, Logic 9, Pro Tools, Cuebase/Nuendo, Reason/Record, and Sonar.

Touch, Click, It's Assigned

Novation knows that producers, musicians and sound designers want hands-on control of their music software without the headaches that come with controllers. SL MkII uses Novation's Automap control software to solve these problems. With over 56 assignable controls, you need to be able to assign things quickly, and keep track of which knob, fader or button is controlling which bit of your software.

Touch-Sensitive Controls
Huge Array of Touch-Sensitive Controls

Touch any knob or fader and all information (name and value of whatever it is controlling) will appear on the LCD screen above it. Automap's software edit page shows you a graphic of the entire control surface, with every control labeled, on your computer monitor. LED rings around the knobs instantly show the value of whatever they're controlling, and each button lights up when switched on.

Keyboard
High-Quality Professional Keyboard

The keyboard is a velocity-sensitive, semi-weighted action keyboard with assignable after-touch. An Italian-made keyboard mechanism plays like a musical instrument rather than a computer accessory.

Illuminated Controls
Illuminated Controls Provide Instant Visual Feedback

Brightly lit LED rings around the eight smooth encoders, and backlit buttons provide instant visual feedback.

LCD Screen
Giant 144-Character LCD Screen

The long LCD screen 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.

USB Powered
USB Bus Powered

SL MkII is totally portable as it does not require an external power supply. It draws power straight from your USB port.

X-Y Control Pad
X-Y Control Pad

The "Xpression" pad and adjustably sprung pitch/mod joystick are both freely assignable to any parameter.

Automap 3 PRO Control Software
Automap 3 PRO Control Software

Automap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It has been designed to make the job of assigning your hardware controls to various software parameters quick and easy. Automap enables knobs, faders and buttons to instantly control plug-in instruments/FX, as well as your sequencer's mixer, transport controls and more…

MIDI Control Interface

Speed Dial
Novation's Unique "Speed Dial"

"Speed Dial" is a touch-sensitive rotary encoder that instantly takes control of whatever your mouse is focused on, providing real time access for composers and performers alike.

Triggerpads
Programmable "Soft-Feel" Triggerpads

The SL MkII's triggerpads are programmable, with a soft feel that makes them the ideal platform for sketching out beats or triggering samples.

Transport Buttons
Dedicated Fully-Assignable Transport Buttons

Control your sequencer's start/stop/loop/record/forward/rewind actions, or switch them out to allow use of more assignable buttons.

Xcite+ bundle
Includes the Xcite+ Bundle

Featuring a host of royalty-free loops and samples, a full-fledged soft-synth and Ableton Live 7 Lite, providing an affordable upgrade path to Ableton Live.

Novation SL MkII Professional USB MIDI Controller Keyboard

SL MkII is an advanced range of USB/MIDI controllers from Novation, designed to give you complete control over your music-making software. Novation has worked with each of the main DAWs to make sure the 56 knobs, faders and buttons control the things in your software that you need them to control, including direct access to your plug-in instruments and effects. Each SL MkII has an Italian-made professional keyboard and a full control surface powered by Automap 4, which makes it fast and simple to control your music software.

Incredible Italian-Made Professional Keyboard
Incredible Italian-Made Professional Keyboard

A 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. SL MkII comes in three sizes: 25, 49 and 61 keys--as well as a keyless "ZeRO" version which is a compact desktop DAW controller minus the keyboard mechanism.

Automap 4 Control Software
Automap 4 Control Software--Spend More Time Making Music, Less Time Reading User Guides

SL MkII 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 to get hands-on with your DAW and plug-ins.

Works with All Major DAWs and Plug-In Instruments and Effects
Works with All Major DAWs and Plug-In Instruments and Effects

Novation has worked with major music software manufacturers to ensure SL MkII gives you instant hands-on control. In addition to the major DAWs--Ableton, Cubase, Logic, and Pro Tools--SL MkII and Automap 4 have been specially designed to give you full control of third party plug-in instruments and effects, like Native Instruments, UAD, or FXpansion. SL MkII also comes with a stack of free software and sounds, including over 1 GB of royalty-free samples from Loopmasters.

144-character LCD: Large Screen Shows Exactly What You Are Controlling
144-character LCD: Large Screen Shows Exactly What You Are Controlling

SL MkII's massive 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 the assignment of each one, without having to look at the software GUI.

Intelligent Controls: Back Lit, LED-Ringed, Touch-Sensitive Controls
Intelligent Controls: Back Lit, LED-Ringed, Touch-Sensitive Controls

Illuminated controls provide feedback information about what controls are doing. Brightly lit 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.
