DAW and Plug-In Control Surface


The ZeRO SL Mk II from Novation is a DAW and plug-in control surface that is equally suited to live or studio use. A large back lit LED display and LED ringed encoders provides visual feedback of control information, while ultra-quick mapping of all 56 knobs, faders and buttons is managed by the included Automap 3 PRO software.

All 8 faders and 16 knobs are touch sensitive, and the moment one is touched, the display shows the names and values on that row and puts brackets around the controller that is currently selected. A dedicated "Speed Dial" can be used to change the value of any parameter the mouse cursor is positioned over without necessitating any assignment.

Eight soft-feel drum pads are fully assignable to any parameter with the Automap software and provide a convenient way for sketching out beats or triggering samples. The controller can be mounted in a 19" rack or used as a desk-top controller or angled for performance using legs that are included with the unit. The unit is powered via the computers USB bus or by using an optional external power supply.
