Absolute hardware control

Bring MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths together by plugging them all into SL61 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 favourite hardware? Well, you can have the best of both worlds. Make controlling your software easy by recording productions from a studio centrepiece.

The perfect controller for Live™

We worked with Ableton® to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live™ music-making software. The five colour 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.

Customisable templates

Highly customisable 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.
