The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA, January 24, 2019 – Novation (booth 10506), a leading brand of innovative tools for electronic music-makers, is exhibiting its recently introduced SL MkIII, a MIDI and CV-equipped keyboard controller with eight-track sequencer.
SL MkIII is far from a typical keyboard controller. It acts as a hub for all of your music-making tools – a centerpiece to connect, control and create with your entire setup, computer or not. Create quickly and easily with your MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths, and build your tracks in the eight-track polyphonic sequencer – everything in time, everything in key, and with every control at your fingertips.
Novation worked with Ableton® to create an unprecedented integration with Live, truly pulling your sessions out of the box. The full-color LCD screens give you full visibility of your parameters, while the pads, buttons, eight faders and eight knobs get you hands-on with your music – and in any major music software, using InControl. Deep integrations with Logic® and Reason – plus HUI compatibility with Cubase, Pro Tools® and Reason – mean SL MkIII can follow you away from Ableton, too.
SL MkIII boasts Novation's finest, most playable and expressive synth-style semi-weighted keybed, with a sprung action and Novation's 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 integration with Ableton Live or any other HUI-compatible DAW. Controlling software is made easy by recording productions from a studio centerpiece
- Whether in the box or outside the box, the MIDI and analogue clock and transport controls keep everything running in time
- Highly customizable 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
- SL MkIII's pads, buttons, eight faders and eight knobs take control of all major music software using InControl
- The SL MkIII has an exceptionally high scan rate of 10kHz, giving the keyboard a huge dynamic range for expressive keyboard performance
- SL MkIII'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
- “Components” allows templates and sessions to be backed up and restored in the cloud, enabling access from anywhere in the world. All content can also be saved locally
