Novation today has released the next generation of SL keyboard controllers. 

 

The SL MkIII extends the SL MkII's workflow with an eight-track polyphonic sequencer for constructing productions with everything staying in sync.

And now it's possible to bring MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths together by plugging them all in.

Featuring an all-new design, the SL MkIII has been re-engineered to control the whole studio, working perfectly alongside any HUI-compatible DAW. Novation has wworked with Ableton® to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live™ music-making software. The SL MkIII boasts our finest, most playable and expressive synth-style semi-weighted keybed, with a sprung action and our highest scan rate, all tuned to the needs of the experienced player.

Key features

  • Absolute hardware control, taking total control directly from the internal eight-track polyphonic pattern-based sequencer
  • Easy hardware integration with Ableton® Live™ or any other HUI-compatible DAW. Controlling software is made easy by recording productions from a studio centrepiece
