Novation 49SL MkII USB Midi Controller
The Novation 49SL MkII USB Midi ControllerI has been designed to give you complete control over your music making software. We have worked with each of the main DAW manufacturers 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 (you also get an Italian made, semi-weighted keyboard mechanism).
The 49SL MkII comes with Automap control software. Automap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It has been designed to make the job of assigning your hardware controls to various software parameters quick and easy. Automap enables knobs, faders and buttons to instantly control plug-in instruments/FX, as well as your sequencer's mixer, transport controls and more.
Novation 49SL MkII USB Midi Controller Features:
-The 56 knobs, faders and buttons can be instantly assigned to plug-ins by just clicking on your software, and touching a control.
-Touch sensitive controls bring up names on the giant LCD screen, as soon as you touch them.

-Developed with major software manufacturers, SL MkII works with all major DAW/sequencers and instrument/FX plug-ins.
