The SL-MkII range is the professional series of USB/MIDI
controllers from Novation and has been developed to allow you full control of
your music software. Thanks to its compatibility with all standard DAW
manufacturers, we can guarantee that each of the 56 knobs, faders and buttons
will control everything you need in your software. Of course, you also have
access to plug-in instruments and effects (not to forget the high-quality
keyboard with semi-weighted keys produced in Italy).
The touch-sensitive, semi-weighted keys developed in Italy
can also produce after touch and offer a comfortable playing style. Novation
controllers are not just a mere "computer accessory" because of this playing
style, but a true musical instrument.
The SL MkII (like all Novation controllers) comes with the
Automap control software. This ensures that controlling music software with the
knobs, buttons and faders functions quickly and smoothly.
The large LCD display featured on the SL MkII clearly shows
what each knob, fader and button is controlling. Thanks to its size, names,
values and controller parameter assignments can be instantly displayed. This
way, you have all the information you need on offer and can concentrate fully
on your playing.
Its illuminated controllers give you instant feedback on
each of their statuses. Thanks to the LED rings surrounding the knobs, you
always know what position your filter cutoff is at for example, and the backlit
buttons let you see if a mute is active or not.
Each rotary knob and fader is touch-sensitive so that a
simple touch gives you instant information on each row of controllers on the
LCD display. No further control adjustments are required and the set values
remain the same.
