Novation 49SL MKII USB Midi Controller KB 4 Octave, 1 x 144-Character Screen + Automap 4
SL MkII is the advanced range of USB/MIDI controllers from Novation. They have been designed to give you complete control over your music making software. We have worked with each of the main DAWs to make sure each of the 56 knobs, faders and buttons control the things in your software that you need them to control including directly access to your plug-in instruments and FX (you also get an Italian made, semi-weighted keyboard mechanism).
SL MkII's massive LCD screen displays information about what each knob, button and fader is controlling. It 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. The screen lines up with controls so you can identify what control is assigned to which bit of your software without having to look at the software GUI.
Illuminated controls provide feedback information about what controls are doing. For example LED rings around encoders tell you the position of your filter cutoff, and back-lit buttons will indicate whether a track is muted or not.
Each pot, encoder and fader is touch sensitive so by simply touching the control you can bring up information about that entire row of faders on the LCD screen without having to move the control and lose your settings.
8 Encoders (Infinite Rotation) with touch-sensitivity and 11 segment Led rings
8 Pots (270 Rotation) with touch-sensitivity
8 Sliders with touch-sensitivity
32 Buttons with integrated LEDs (37 in MIDI mode]
8 soft feel Trigger pads
Xpression Pad (as on existing SL)

The central system buttons from the SL have been simplified; there is now:
1 Automap button with LED to toggle Automap mode on and off (this replaces the PLAY button) - this way, manual MIDI mode is separate from Automap mode and can be avoided completely if preferred
Template and Edit modes have been combined into one edit mode, for editing both individual controls and overall settings within one Template
