Novation Controller Keyboard

MusicTech 10/10 
Gear Of The Year Gold Award Winner: Best Controller.
“...SL MkIII is a game changer for sequencing your hardware and software away from, or indeed with, your computer.” 

“SL MkIII is genuinely the most exciting piece of tech I’ve reviewed all year. Incredible.”

Future Music 9.3/10
“Flexible range of digital and analogue control... Excellent, easy-to-use sequencer” 

“... stylish and easy to navigate ...Well-designed and versatile. For those who work with both hardware and software, this may be the best studio centrepiece on the market”

“Between the well-designed templates and easy-to-use Components app, Novation has done an excellent job in making setup as hassle free as possible”

Novation SL61 MKIII is the centrepiece that can be used to control your whole studio, working perfectly alongside your DAW. Make working with your hardware easy and creatively rewarding, and construct your next production in the 8 track polyphonic sequencer, with everything staying in sync.

The v1.4 firmware update for our flagship SL MkIII range of controller keyboards brings immense new composition and performance features, which greatly expand its capabilities. The new features give SL MkIII users expanded arpeggiators, new sequencer functions, deeper swing control, and creative transposition features. All the new features are designed intentionally to bring greater creative flexibility and possibilities to the SL MkIII user, and to be a constant source of inspiration throughout the music-making journey. The new features, in detail, are:

  • Per-part arpeggiator: Each of the eight parts now have individual, independent arpeggiators, for building complex polyrhythmic patterns.
  • Arpeggiator probability: The new arpeggiator probability feature brings an element of randomness to each arpeggiator, turning SL MkIII into a generative and constantly evolving instrument.Step probability The probability of a programmed step can be altered, bringing creative irregularity and extending the musical palette of the SL MkIII.
  • Sequencer transpose (with pads): The SL MkIII’s pads can now be used to make sequencer transposition a powerful performance tool.
  • Pattern octave transpose: Allows patterns to be transposed across the octave range, to find the perfect pitch and experiment with ideas.
  • Toggle swing per-part: With swing on or off per part, it’s possible to build contrasting layers of groove for more complex rhythmic results.
  • Pattern shift: Now it's possible to quickly offset the start and end points of a pattern together to explore variations and manage sequences.
  • Pitch bend to CV: The pitch-bend wheel can now be mapped to the CV output, opening up more expression possibilities for modular synth users and other external hardware control applications.

In addition to the new performance features, v1.4 includes some bug fixes —including one for Logic Pro users —which improve the SL MkIII experience.

  • Bring MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths together
  • Easily integrate hardware with your DAW
  • The perfect controller for Ableton Live music-making software
  • Internal 8 track pattern based sequencer
  • 1 routable clock for the whole system

new features in the 1.2 firmware update (January 2020) include:

  • Microstep editing - Sequencer resolution now increased to incorporate 6 microsteps per step
  • Step View pattern scrolling - Up and down pads can now be used to scroll through loaded sequencer patterns without deselecting the pattern currently playing
  • Assignable Aftertouch - Aftertouch is now assignable to any MIDI CC which can be chosen with Components
  • More responsive knobs - Increased responsiveness of SL MkIII's rotary encoders for smoother adjustment of parameters
  • Increased Gate length - Maximum step length doubled to 32 so that you can record and sequence longer MIDI notes within patterns
  • Enhanced NRPN Control - SL MkIII now communicates with all NRPN-enabled devices, expanding its hardware control remit.

Unquantised Recording

  • In v1.2, we introduced micro-step editing, allowing users to position notes off the grid for subtle timing variations. With unquantised recording, users now have the ability to record into these microsteps.
