Getting hands on, and the physical changes for SL Mk II are definite improvements it quickly becomes second nature to stroke a control to discover its function, for instance. Obviously, Automap 3 makes for a flexible and potentially complex system, and it can be overwhelming at times (as with any mapping system, to be fair). Its true that its sometimes quicker to just use the mouse, especially if you dont define logical Control Maps. And youd probably lose your mind if you tried to use Automap to control everything in your rig! However, the system really comes into its own when youve defined sensible mappings for your most used synths and effects. Its great for performance work too this is where Automap Mixer control makes the most sense, as while its not suitable for serious mixing, its just the thing for jamming with levels and toggling channels on the fly. Oh, and were really looking forward to seeing what crazy schemes people come up with using the keystroke-binding features!

An evolution rather than a revolution, this refresh to the core SL line reaffirms Novation's status as the controller kings.

Whether SL Mk I is the controller update Novation users were asking for will depend on what it was they didnt like on MkI. There are plenty of users who still dont like the pitch-bend/ mod wheel joystick and it transpires that the rumoured cross-fade dial has been left off the keyboards and is only available on the Zero SL MkII. Equally, you might be alarmed to discover that one of the LCD displays has disappeared but, as discussed, this is not a major blow. Also I, for one, would love to see a 76 or 88-key version for pro studios.||||However, if you were among the users who wanted better visual feedback from the unit, even more parameter control, a more rugged construction and enhancements to Automap, the beating software heart of this range, you cant fail to be impressed. Equally, if youre new to the whole concept but are in the market for a controller keyboard which can grab your DAW by the Jacobs, the SL MkII could be just the ticket.
