Novation today has released the next generation of SL keyboard controllers.
The SLMkIII 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 SLMkIII 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 SLMkIII 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.
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
Whether in the box or outside the box, the MIDI and analogue clock and transport controls keep everything running in time
Highly customisable mappings for hardware and software easily control everything
USB; MIDI In, Out, Out 2/Thru; three pedal inputs; Analogue Clock Out; and two CV Pitch, Gate, and Mod outputs can be used to route anything anywhere
SLMkIII's pads, buttons, eight faders and eight knobs take control of all major music software using InControl
The SLMkIII has an exceptionally high scan rate of 10kHz (10,000 times per second), giving the keyboard a huge dynamic range for expressive keyboard performance
SLMkIII's velocity-sensitive RGB pads have multiple functions: they can be used for launching clips, as steps in the sequencer, they are perfect for the finger drummer, and have polyphonic aftertouch
