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

    The perfect controller for Live
    We worked with Ableton to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live music-making software. The five colour 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 analogue 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

    Customisable templates
    Highly customisable 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.

    Control all major music software
    Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. 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. 

    High-resolution scan
    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. 

    Keys for the player
    The 49SL MkIII boasts our finest, most playable and expressive synth-style semi-weighted, sprung action keybed, and our highest scan rate, all tuned to the needs of the experienced player. It’s got aftertouch too, assignable to anything.

    Selectable Velocity Curves
    The Velocity Curves come to you from a Novation engineer who’s been designing and playing keyboard controllers for two decades. Choose from a comprehensive selection of Velocity Curves to suit your playing style.

    Pads
    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.

    Backlit Pitch and Modulation wheels
    Pitch and Modulation wheels have RGB LEDs that change colour to show what track you're working on. Brightness gives you the value of what you're changing.
