Novation's 25 SL Mk II has been designed to give you complete control over your music making software. SL MkII can directly control your plug-in instruments and FX (you also get an Italian made, semi-weighted keyboard mechanism). SL MkII comes with Automap, a piece of software that has been designed to make the job of assigning your hardware controls to various software parameters quick and easy. Automap enables knobs, faders and buttons to instantly control plug-in instruments/FX, as well as your sequencer's mixer, transport controls and more. Open a plug-in instrument/FX, and you have instant access to all the plug-in parameters. This allows you to assign knobs, faders and buttons, by simply clicking on the software parameter, and touching the control.

Works with Your Sequencer

SL MkII will give you transport and mixer control in all major DAW/sequencers. You can also get instant control of external plug-in instruments/FX (like Native Instruments and FXpansion which are not included with your DAW). SL MkII will also give you instant control over major DAWs own plug-in instruments/FX: Ableton, Logic 9, Pro Tools, Cuebase/Nuendo, Reason/Record, and Sonar.

Touch, Click, It's Assigned

Novation knows that producers, musicians and sound designers want hands-on control of their music software without the headaches that come with controllers. SL MkII uses Novation's Automap control software to solve these problems. With over 56 assignable controls, you need to be able to assign things quickly, and keep track of which knob, fader or button is controlling which bit of your software.

Touch-Sensitive Controls
Huge Array of Touch-Sensitive Controls

Touch any knob or fader and all information (name and value of whatever it is controlling) will appear on the LCD screen above it. Automap's software edit page shows you a graphic of the entire control surface, with every control labeled, on your computer monitor. LED rings around the knobs instantly show the value of whatever they're controlling, and each button lights up when switched on.

Keyboard
High-Quality Professional Keyboard

The keyboard is a velocity-sensitive, semi-weighted action keyboard with assignable after-touch. An Italian-made keyboard mechanism plays like a musical instrument rather than a computer accessory.

Illuminated Controls
Illuminated Controls Provide Instant Visual Feedback

Brightly lit LED rings around the eight smooth encoders, and backlit buttons provide instant visual feedback.

LCD Screen
Giant 144-Character LCD Screen

The long LCD screen is large enough to show the name and value of entire rows of knobs, faders or buttons, instantly displaying what each control is assigned to.

USB Powered
USB Bus Powered

SL MkII is totally portable as it does not require an external power supply. It draws power straight from your USB port.

Triggerpads
Programmable "Soft-Feel" Triggerpads

The SL MkII's triggerpads are programmable, with a soft feel that makes them the ideal platform for sketching out beats or triggering samples.
