61SL M3 KEYBOARD CONTROLLER
The 61-note Novation SL MkIII is an advanced MIDI and CV keyboard controller with an integrated 8-track sequencer, designed to be the centerpiece in any creative software- or hardware-based studio.
The professional-quality keyboard offers a synth-style semi-weighted keybed with a sprung action, which is tuned to the needs of the experienced player. Additionally, the keyboard offers aftertouch, which is freely assignable to anything. The remarkably high scan rate (10 kHz) gives the keys a super dynamic feel for expressive performances, while the interface provides visual feedback for scales, modes, and zones instantly with vibrant on-key RGB LEDs. The SL MkIII's velocity-sensitive RGB pads offer polyphonic aftertouch and can be used for a variety of purposes including launching clips, inputting steps in the sequencer, or finger drumming performances.
The internal 8-track sequencer allows you to input notes step-by-step, or record as you go. Play and edit your sequences directly from the keyboard, then record parameter automation straight onto the sequencer, bringing your productions to life. You can choose an arpeggio type, set a sync rate, tweak note and pattern lengths, and use the pads to design your rhythms in real time.
The SL MkIII provides deep integration with Ableton Live, allowing you to pull the sessions out of the box and into the hardware. 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. Additionally, the SL MkIII provides deep integrations with Logic and Reason, plus HUI compatibility with Cubase, Pro Tools, Studio One, Reaper, or any major DAW.
The rear panel offers a variety of connections including USB, standard MIDI in/out/out2-thru (5-pin DIN), and 1/4" inputs for footswitch, expression, or sustain. Additionally, the SL MkIII provides connectivity for analog synthesizers and modular setups with two sets of CV, gate, and modulation outputs, plus a dedicated clock output for keeping your hardware and software in perfect sync. The Novation SL MkIII is powered by the included 12 VDC power adapter and ships with a premium braided USB cable and a software bundle license for Ableton Live Lite and Loopmasters sample content.
