Two of Novation’s latest keyboards have just made a substantial step towards universal integration. Nocturn Keyboard and SL MkII now work seamlessly with Logic 9 and Pro Tools. You can now control all Logic and Pro Tools’ own plug-ins, as well as most third-party plug-ins (Native Instruments, Waves, etc.). The two keyboards also allow control over transport and mixer. Of course they also work with Ableton Live – having jointly designed the Launchpad, Ableton developers have worked with Novation to update the SL Mk II. This makes it a comprehensive, fully bus powered Ableton Live 8 controller.
