49-note USB keyboard controller with MIDI and CV connectivity.
The Novation 49SL MKIII is the ideal studio centerpiece that can be used to control your whole studio, working perfectly alongside your hardware instruments and your DAW. With MIDI and CV compatibility, the 49SL MKIII makes integrating your hardware easy and creatively rewarding. Construct your next track with a host of creative production features including an 8-track polyphonic sequencer and a host of controls for an immersive hands-on experience. SL MKIII's pads, buttons, eight faders and eight knobs take control of all major music software using InControl. SL MKIII also works with any HUI-compatible DAW.
Do you use a DAW and crave integrating your favorite hardware? Well, you can have the best of both worlds. 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. The Novation 49SL MKIII was designed to work seamlessly with Ableton to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for Live™. The five color LCD screens give you full parameter feedback, enabling you to see everything you are controlling. The SL MKIII has an exceptionally high scan rate of 10kHz (10,000 times per second), giving the keyboard a huge dynamic range for expressive keyboard performance.
The 49SL MKIII boasts Novation’s finest, most playable and expressive synth-style semi-weighted, sprung action keybed, with their highest scan rate, all tuned to the needs of the experienced player. It also has feely assignable aftertouch and a comprehensive selection of Velocity Curves to suit your playing style. Pitch and Modulation wheels have RGB LEDs that change color to show what track you're working on. Brightness gives you the value of what you're changing. SL MKIII's velocity-sensitive RGB pads have multiple functions: they can be used for launching clips, as steps in the sequencer, they are perfect for the finger drummer, and have polyphonic aftertouch. Components allows you to backup and restore your templates and sessions in the cloud, enabling access from anywhere in the world. All content can also be saved locally.
The V1.3 firmware update delivers one of the most requested SL MkIII features, along with further stability improvements and bug fixes.
The 49SL MKIII also features 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.
