Novation 25 SL Mk II 25-key USB MIDI Keyboard Controller at a Glance:
Map controls at break-neck speed using the included Automap 3 PRO software
It's incredibly easy to assign out controls on the Novation 25 SL Mk II MIDI controller. That's because it comes with a copy of Novation's Automap 3 PRO software. This powerful program lets you simply touch the controller, click on a an on-screen parameter, and consider the control assigned. You can even assign almost any QWERTY or ASCII keyboard shortcut to the hardware controls. On-screen, you can manage your mappings, rename them, or swap them by dragging and dropping — it's all really easy and really fast. Plus, there's an "Autoview" function, which only brings up the Automap 3 PRO GUI when you touch a 25 SL Mk II controller — it will hide the GUI after the controller is released. Automap 3 PRO offers intelligent control over all sequencers and VST/AU/RTAS/TDM plug-ins. It gets better, though — keep reading to find out about the Novation 25 SL Mk II's extensive visual feedback.
LED visual feedback keeps you in touch with every MIDI assignment
With most MIDI controllers, you have to memorize the way you've mapped out your control assignments — not an easy task and one that makes it nearly impossible to collaborate with anyone else while you work. The Novation 25 SL Mk II, though, sports an LED screen above the row of encoders. It displays words to tell you just what you've assigned to each control. Beyond that, those encoders feature an LED ring around them, so you get the visual cues you need to set levels or take note of your levels — whether you're in the studio or out on a dark stage. Add to that 32 assignable back-lit buttons, and you'll have a lot of control — and important feedback — with your Novation 25 SL Mk II.
