Novation 61 SL MKII 61 Key USB MIDI Keyboard Controller
Novation’s 61 LS MKII MIDI keyboard is first and foremost a well-put-together instrument, with its ultra-responsive semi-weighted keys that also offer aftertouch. On to pot that, you’ve also got a wide array of onboard controls to help you tweak and manipulate the parameters of that sound: nine faders, eight rotaries, eight pads, transport controls, and a whole slew of additional buttons. Using the Automap 4 software that’s included with this device, you can assign those controls to the inner workings of your DAW and its plug-ins. The keyboard also features a custom LCD screen to give you a great visual cue of what’s happening. In addition to working with software that you may already have, the Novation 61 LS MKII also comes with Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station, Loopmasters sample library, and Mike the Drummer software, so you’ll be making music in no time.
