The SL88 Grand is nothing less than the reinvention of the high-end keyboard controller.
More than 30 years' experience in exclusive keybeds meets an all-new, powerful, operating system. Perfect for you to control your hardware and virtual instruments. All provided in a powerful new refreshing way. Working together with musicians we have created a user interface which is perfect for quick navigation and setup, but also gives you excellent in-depth control. The SL88 Grand is ready to be at the very heart of your system.
The SL88 Grand uses the best-graded hammer action keybed with Ivory Touch and wooden keys, to give you the natural feel of a well balanced grand piano. Each of the keys provides 3 contacts for superior performance. The results of this combination are simply amazing. From the slightest pianissimo up to the strongest fortissimo, the keys translate every nuance of your performance in an inspiring and truly superb way.
Total access with total ease. Located
in the center of the instrument is a razor-sharp TFT color display. In
combination with the high quality six-way controller knob, you can
navigate through all SL88 Grand functions fast and with ease. Functions
such as switching through the four zones are achieved by moving the
controller, and then by clicking and turning the same knob again, you
can select and adjust the desired parameter. Simple, intuitive and fast!
Additionally, the three push buttons to the right of the control knob
bring you back to the top-level from any location in the system with
just one push.
SL88 Grand offers three X/Y stick controllers, not just for performance
but also for direct control and manipulation of any desired sound
parameter. Stick one is spring-loaded for both X/Y directions. The
typical use for this stick is pitch and modulation control. Stick 2 is
spring-loaded in X direction only. Stick 3 is free in X and Y
directions, ideal for panning, cross fading and parameter control. All
sticks feature an elegant, aluminum control shaft which feels perfectly
balanced and expressive between your fingertips.
Magnetic rail system.
the innovative Magnetic Rail System at the rear of the SL88 Grand you
can easily adapt a note stand or an extension plate to hold your written
notes, music, laptop or tablet. It works as brilliantly easy as it
looks. Just click the brackets into the backrail to match the position
you need for your accessory items.
