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.

Works with all major DAWs and plug-in instruments and effects
We have worked with major music software manufacturers to ensure SL MkII gives you instant hands-on control. In addition to the major DAWs, SL MkII & Automap 4 have been specially designed to give you full control of 3rd party plug-in instruments and effects, like Native Instruments, UAD or FXpansion.

    Automap control software - instant mixer, transport and plug-in control
    So many controllers promise customers hands-on control of their music software and fail to deliver. Novation controllers are different; they come with Novation's revolutionary new Automap 4 software.

    What is it?
    Automap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It makes it fast and simple to control your music software with knobs, buttons and faders. It has been used by many top musician/producers since 2006.

    How can it help?
    SL MkII gives you control over the mixer, transport and plug-ins of all major DAWs, as well as plug-in instruments and effects that donÆt come with your DAW, like Native Instruments, Waves or FXpansion. Automap enables you to see instantly which knobs, faders and buttons are controlling which part of your software. It also makes it easy to quickly change what the knobs are controlling.

    See what you are controlling
    Automap has a software edit page that looks just like the SL MkII control surface. This labels what each knob, fader and button is controlling, because with so many things in your DAW and plug-ins, it is easy to lose track of what is assigned to what. You can hide this window once you are finished with it, so you can continue making music.

    Get instant control
    SL MkIIÆs controls can be used to control your plug-in instruments and effects. When you open a software instrument/effect, the 8 knobs will already be linked to commonly used parameters. If you want to control different things in your software, just press the "Learn" button, click on the software parameter, and wiggle the knob that you want to control it. This way you can get hands on control of exactly what you want almost instantly.


    Powerful DAW/plug-in control surface:
    8 longer-throw faders (60mm, 8 pots, 8 encoders, 32 buttons and a crossfader give you full control of your DAW and plug-ins).

    Illuminated controls provide instant visual feedback:
    Brightly lit LED rings around the eight smooth encoders, and backlit buttons provide instant visual feedback.

    Giant 144-character LCD screen:
    Long LCD screen 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.

    Huge array of touch-sensitive controls:
    Touch any knob or fader and all information (name and value of whatever it is controlling) will appear on the LCD screen above it.

    Automap 4 control software:
    SL Mk II comes with Automap software which enables you to instantly map software parameters to faders, buttons, knobs (encoders and pots and other controllers).

    Free software:
    Ableton Live Lite, Novation's Bass Station synth and a Loopmasters sample pack are all included with the SL MkII.

    SL MkII can be USB powered, with expression and sustain pedal inputs as well as MIDI in and out ports for connecting external MIDI instruments.

    Assignable controls:
