SL MkII is the daddy of advanced professional USB MIDI controllers. It combines a semi-weighted Fatar keybed that plays like an instrument with an absolutely ludicrous number of controls.

It gives you direct, hands-on control over every aspect of your music, software, plug-in instruments and FX, as well as immediate feedback at the touch of a button.



Incredible Expressive Keyboard

Express yourself on our premium semi-weighted Fatar keybed with assignable after-touch. It plays almost like an instrument to let you create truly expressive performances.
You can choose between 61, 49 and 25-key versions or the keyless SL MkII ZeRO, which gives you the same control over your software in a more lightweight and portable form.



Every SL MkII has the same huge number of fully assignable controls, all of which map automatically to your software with Automap to give you direct access to everything you could want to control.

See exactly

The 144-character LCD screen shows you exactly what you are controlling, including the name and value of entire rows of knobs, faders or buttons.

We also lined the screen up with your controls, so you can see which bits of your software they are controlling without ever having to peer at your laptop.


We designed the SL MkII to put information at your fingertips.

The illuminated controls give you instant visual feedback: LED rings around your encoders tell you the position of your filter cutoff and the back-lit buttons show you which tracks are muted.

“An evolution rather than a revolution, this refresh to the core SL line reaffirms Novation's status as the controller kings.”
