SL Mk III w/ 76 notes

Dear Novation Product development team,

I love your SL-series controllers, especially the feel of your Fatar synthesizer keybeds, but they are becoming a little outdated.  I love the connectivity of your new Launchkey line w/ Ableton Live, but I am disappointed by the plasticky feel of the keybed.

My dream controller...

Novation SL MkIII
Premium feeling synth keybed w/ 76 notes
Launchkey connectivity w/ 8-12 faders, 16 pots/encoders, and 32 launch pads, all flexibly assignable.

Any chance you might consider making something like this?

Keep up the great work!

I second the request! In particular the premium synth keybed w/ 73-76 keys. Oh yeah, and the joystick controller, keep that. I'd buy it in a second!

big PLUS 1 on that.


Love my Zero SL mk2, have setup automaps for all the plugins i use & also some of my external synths.

have tried the NI Kontrol S61 - and am not impressed by their way of integration. So i'm thinking of selling it again & getting a SL61 mk2.
Also Automap is finally good enough to take on NI & ableton solutions (only 8 knobs!), but the hardware needs to be competitive also.

Because what holds me back is that my ZeroSL's knobs feel so cheap compared to NI Kontrol Sxx or Ableton Push.
and also the knobs on my zero sl start to behave strange, although they were not heavily used...

Please give us a MK3 now!
