Novation ZeroSL MKII USB MIDI Controller

SL MkII is the advanced range of USB/MIDI controllers from Novation designed to give you complete control over your music-making software. It has an Italian made, velocity-sensitive, semi-weighted action keyboard with assignable after-touch, so it plays like a musical instrument rather than a computer accessory. SL MkII comes in three sizes: 25, 49 and 61 keys - as well as a keyless "ZeRO" version which is a compact desktop DAW controller minus the keyboard mechanism.

The SL MkII comes with Automap control software. This gives you instant mapping to your controls, meaning you can make full use of the 56 knobs, faders, and buttons on SL MkII to get hands-on with your DAW and directly access your plug-ins and FX.

SL MkII's LCD screen is large enough to display the name and value of every knob, fader and button, and what each is assigned to. The screen lines up with controls so you can see this without having to look at the software GUI. Furthermore, illuminated controls provide feedback information, for example LED rings around encoders tell you the position of your filter cutoff, and back-lit buttons will indicate whether a track is muted or not.

Each pot, encoder and fader is touch sensitive so by simply touching the control you can bring up information about that entire row of faders on the LCD screen without having to move the control and lose your settings.

In addition to the major DAWs, SL MkII & Automap 4.8 have been specially designed to give you full control of 3rd party plug-in instruments and effects, like Native Instruments, UAD or FXpansion. The SL MkII is compatible with software like Ableton live, Cubase/Nuendo, Logic, and ProTools, and gives you high-level control of DAW’s like Digital Performer, Reaper, Reason/Record, Sonar, and Studio One.

SL MkII also comes with a stack of free software and sounds, including Ableton Live Lite, which provides powerful loop based music-making software; Novation Bass Station with its legendary analogue bass synth as a software plug-in; Loopmasters sample library, with over 1GB of royalty-free samples; and Mike The Drummer, featuring 502MB of live drum loops and breaks.

  • Powerful DAW/plug-in control surface
  • Illuminated controls provide instant visual feedback
  • Giant 144-character LCD screen
  • Huge array of touch-sensitive controls
  • Automap 4 control software
  • Connectivity

The central system buttons from the SL have been simplified; there is now 1 Automap button with LED to toggle Automap mode on and off (this replaces the PLAY button) – this way, manual MIDI mode is separate from Automap mode and can be avoided completely if preferred
