Description

The Novation 61SL MKIII is the ideal studio centerpiece 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.

Absolute hardware control
Bring MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths together by plugging them all into SL MkIII, taking total control directly from the internal eight-track polyphonic pattern-based sequencer.

Easily integrate hardware with your DAW
Do you use a DAW and crave integrating your favorite hardware? Well, you can have the best of both worlds. Make controlling your software easy by recording productions from a studio centerpiece.

The perfect controller for Live
We worked with Ableton to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live™ music-making software. The five color LCD screens give you full parameter feedback, enabling you to see everything you are controlling.

Internal eight-track pattern-based sequencer
Real-time record or input notes per step. Play and edit your sequences directly from the keyboard. Record your movements as automation into the sequencer, bringing life to your production.

One routable clock for the whole system
Whether you're in the box or outside the box, the MIDI and analog clock and transport controls keep everything running in time.

Arpeggiator
Choose an arp type, set a sync rate, tweak the length, and then use the pads to design your rhythms in real time.

Customizable templates
Highly customizable mappings for hardware and software easily control everything. Create your own templates in the software editor, and save them to the keyboard.

LED feedback
Work with scales and keys and set up multiple zones and layers on the keyboard. See everything instantly with vibrant on-key RGB LED feedback.

Comprehensive connectivity

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.

V1.3 Firmware Update
This firmware update delivers one of the most requested SL MkIII features, along with further stability improvements and bug fixes.
 
Unquantized Recording
In the previous firmware version, Novation introduced micro-step editing, allowing users to position notes off the grid for subtle timing variations. With unquantized recording, users have the ability to record into these micro steps. This means that the organic, human quality of performances and punched-in beats can be captured in all their wonky glory.
