Novation SL MkII 61
Novation’s flagship MIDI controller keyboard, with Fatar keybed, assignable controls, LCD screen and more.
The SL MkII 61 is the last word in professional USB MIDI controllers. Combining a superb semi-weighted Fatar keybed with a ridiculous number of controls, it connects your hands directly to your DAW, plugin instruments and effects, with comprehensive visual feedback via the controls themselves and the LCD screen.
Incredible Professional Keyboard
Express yourself on the SL MkII 61’s 61-key premium semi-weighted Fatar keybed. Featuring velocity sensitivity and assignable aftertouch, this supremely playable keyboard feels like a real musical instrument, and is enhanced by the inclusion of expression and sustain pedal inputs.
Get Instant Hands-On Control
The SL MkII 61 is bristling with controllers. 56 fully assignable faders, buttons, pots and LED-ringed encoders all instantly and effortlessly hook into your software via Novation’s acclaimed Automap software, giving you direct hands-on access to your DAW and plugins.
Eight Trigger Pads and Two Xpression controllers
Finger drummers will love The SL MkII 61’s eight soft feel trigger pads, while the Xpression Joystick combines pitchbend and mod wheel functions in one intuitively tweakable controller, and the Expression X-Y Pad serves as a freely assignable 2D touchpad.
See Exactly What You’re Controlling
The 144-character LCD screen provides information on the software parameters being controlled by the SK MkII 61 at any time, including the names and values of entire rows of knobs, faders or buttons. Novation have also lined the screen up with the rotary encoders, so you can see what they’re assigned to without looking at your computer screen.
Get Immediate Visual Feedback
The SL MkII 61’s illuminated controls deliver further visual feedback: 11-segment LED rings around the encoders reflect the position of your filter cutoff or reverb mix balance, while the backlit buttons let you see at a glance what tracks in your project are muted or soloed, for example. Touch-Sensitive Controls
Every knob, encoder, button and fader on the SL MkII 61 is touch-sensitive. Simply touch a control without moving it to bring up information on its entire row on your LCD screen.
Control Any Major Music Software
The SL MkII 61 gives hands-on control of the transport and mixer in any major DAW application, including Live, Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools. You can also use the SL MkII 61 with Novation’s powerful Automap software to control third party plug-in instruments and effects, such as those by Native Instruments, Universal Audio, FXpansion and countless other developers, with parameters mapped automatically and intelligently.
