    Novation 49 SL MK3 USB MIDI Keyboard Controller, 49-Key Product Description

    Bring MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths together by plugging them all into SL MkIII, taking total control directly from the internal eight-track polyphonic pattern-based sequencer.

    Easily integrate hardware with your DAW

    Do you use a DAW and crave integrating your favorite hardware? Well, you can have the best of both worlds. Make controlling your software easy by recording productions from a studio centerpiece.

    The perfect controller for Live

    Novation worked with Ableton to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live music-making software. The five color LCD screens give you full parameter feedback, enabling you to see everything you are controlling.

    Internal eight-track pattern-based sequencer

    Real time record or input notes per step. Play and edit your sequences directly from the keyboard. Record your movements as automation into the sequencer, bringing life to your production.

    One routable clock for the whole system

    Whether you're in the box or outside the box, the MIDI and analogue clock and transport controls keep everything running in time.


    Choose an arp type, set a sync rate, tweak the length, and then use the pads to design your rhythms in real time.

    Customizable templates

    Highly customizable mappings for hardware and software easily control everything. Create your own templates in the software editor, and save them to the keyboard.

    LED feedback

    Work with scales and keys and set up multiple zones and layers on the keyboard. See everything instantly with vibrant on-key RGB LED feedback.

    Comprehensive connectivity

    USB; MIDI In, Out, Out 2/Thru; three pedal inputs; Analogue Clock Out; and two CV Pitch, Gate, and Mod outputs can be used to route anything anywhere.

    Control all major music software

    Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. SL MkIII's pads, buttons, eight faders and eight knobs take control of all major music software using InControl. SL MkIII also works with any HUI-compatible DAW.

    High-resolution scan

    The SL MkIII has an exceptionally high scan rate of 10kHz (10,000 times per second), giving the keyboard a huge dynamic range for expressive keyboard performance.

    Keys for the player

    The 49SL MkIII boasts our finest, most playable and expressive synth-style semi-weighted, sprung action keybed, and our highest scan rate, all tuned to the needs of the experienced player. It's got aftertouch too, assignable to anything.

    Selectable Velocity Curves

    The Velocity Curves come to you from a Novation engineer who's been designing and playing keyboard controllers for two decades. Choose from a comprehensive selection of Velocity Curves to suit your playing style.


    SL MkIII's velocity-sensitive RGB pads have multiple functions: they can be used for launching clips, as steps in the sequencer, they are perfect for the finger drummer, and have polyphonic aftertouch.

    Backlit Pitch and Modulation wheels

    Pitch and Modulation wheels have RGB LEDs that change color to show what track you're working on. Brightness gives you the value of what you're changing.


    Components allows you to backup and restore your templates and sessions in the cloud, enabling access from anywhere in the world. All content can also be saved locally.
