Watch the new Novation SL MkIII MIDI/CV controller in action

Prior to the release of the new SL MkIII range, Novation popped in to see us with a brand new 49-key version.

Product specialist, Chris Calcutt, brought in some gear from his own setup, including an Elektron Octatrack and Make Noise 0-Coast, among other things, to show off the SL MkIII’s hardware sequencing capabilities via MIDI and CV.

As this was a pre-release edition of the firmware, not all of the features were available to us on the day, but we hopefully captured enough of what the new SL MkIII range is all about.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
