Automap 3 PRO software comes bundled free with SL Mk II, and boasts the following features:
Automap 3 removes the pain and time involved in assigning MIDI parameters, and all layouts are fully customisable.
Places a transparent control map across your computer screen - see at a glance how the parameters are automatically assigned to each of SL Mk II's controls.
Simply click on the software parameter and touch a touch-sensitive control to assign it. Now you can re-assign every control in seconds.
Automap 3 can assign almost any computer keyboard shortcuts to hardware controls. For example arrow key functions can now be assigned to hardware controls, allowing you to flick between tracks using buttons on your SL/Nocturn. You could also zoom in and out, open windows or create and jump to markers in your DAW.
Name your parameters and store mappings for later use. The same heads-up display provides quick and simple assigning of regular MIDI parameters. This ensures SL Mk II can also turn its hand to controlling the few software application that still rely solely on the MIDI protocol.
Lets you review all open plug-ins, then quickly switch to control and one of them. Mixer 'MIDI maps' can be created, saved and recalled via the same map browsing facility.
Optional Autoview mode means that the GUI only becomes visible when a controller is touched, then it disappears again allowing you to get back to your DAW.
When we launched the ReMOTE 0SL, it quickly became clear that it was a favourite amongst Ableton you . Professionals who use Ableton (from performers to Ableton Certified Trainers) were keen to tell us how well matched they were. So, when designing the ZeRO SL Mk II, our developers thought carefully about how they could optimize it to be used with "Live", whilst maintaining its versatility across other Digital Audio Workstations (such as Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase etc).
The result is that despite its multi-DAW compatibility, ZeRO's hardware features and software integration make it an perfect software controller for writing and performing with Ableton Live:
We've stretched the Faders from 45mm to 60mm for more precise mixer control.
It now has a crossfader, perfect live performance situations.
32 bright user LED buttons which can easily be assigned to trigger clips.
New 'soft touch" velocity sensitive drum pads for sketching out drum patterns
Large LCD screen displays the names and values of all parameters on the currently selected row.
As well as the LED ringed continuous rotary encoders, the ZeRO has eight smooth, touch sensitive pots - a must have in the eyes of many Ableton performers.
Speed Dial allows you to quickly get hands on control of any parameter displayed on screen, just by hovering the cursor over it - for quick access during live performances.
Small footprint which fits snugly behind a QWERTY/ASCII keyboard, with legs that raise and tilt it for live use.
USB buss-powered, meaning no bulky wallwart PSUs taking up precious power sockets.
All SL Mk II's come with a dedicated Ableton Mode which was designed in collaboration with Ableton.
Extensive control of Ableton's own devices as well as VSTand AU plug-ins.
It only requires a very simple set-up in Ableton's preferences window.
The ZeRO's Automap 3 PRO software can instantly map QWERTY/ASCII key-commands to controls on the ZeRO, as well as the other benefits of Automap3 (click here to see what else Automap can do)
Full transport controls - which can be reassigned to other parameters (along with the other 26 buttons) in Automap mode if required. ReMOTE ZeRO SL vs ZeRO SL Mk II
