Novation ZeRO SL MkII USB MIDI Control Surface
ZeRO SL Mk II has been designed to give you complete control over your music making software. We have worked with each of the major DAWs to make sure each of the 56 knobs, faders and buttons control the things in your software that you need them to control. However, the really clever bit is that SL MkII can directly control your plug-in instruments and FX. The control surface is almost identical to the SL MkII keyboards, but it has longer throw faders (60mm) and a central crossfader. Lightweight and bus powered, it is a firm favourite with performers.
Powerful DAW/plug-in control surface
ZeRO SL MkII has 8 faders, 8 encoders, 8 pots, 32 assignable buttons and a crossfader. Even the 8 triggerpads can be re-assigned. You can switch 6 of the buttons into transport mode allowing you to play, stop, record and loop as well as navigate backwards and forwards in your session.
Automap 4 control software: Spend more time making music, less time reading user guides
Many MIDI controllers have knobs, faders and buttons, but using them is difficult and time consuming!
SL MkII (as with all Novation controllers) comes with Automap control software. This gives you instant mapping to the things you need to control, meaning you can make full use of faders, knobs and buttons on SL MkII to get hands-on with your DAW and plug-ins.
144-character LCD: Large screen shows exactly what you are controlling
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.
Intelligent Controls: Back lit, LED-ringed, touch-sensitive controls
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.
