When I first played the SL88 Studio, I was blown away. The touch feeling of the keys is 90% like a real acoustic piano. The response of the keys is great. When you play it, the keys “retract” back fast. This is because SL88 Studio adopts the latest hammer action keybed technology from FATAR giving the best piano touch feeling. TP/100LR is remarkably lighter than any other. Each of the keys provides 3 contacts for superior performance. With the respect of the full weighted touch of the real piano action, the new design guarantees a very fluent and authentic feel. The results of this combination are simply amazing.
Most controllers on the market today have a singular focus on controlling your computer-based instruments, leaving players with few options when it comes to controlling rigs that live outside of the box. With its compact profile, the SL88 Studio is an extremely portable professional controller. Thanks to a perfect integration with the TP/100LR keyboard, it weighs less than 14 kilograms. The SL88 Studio is stage and studio ready with a rugged full metal casing. Sculptured endcaps made of a highly resistant synthetic material help to shield the keybed perfectly and provide a safe grip when handling and transporting.
The TFT color display at the centre allows you to navigate through all SL88 Studio functions fast and with ease. The SL88 Studio 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, crossfading and parameter control. All sticks feature an elegant, aluminium control shaft which feels perfectly balanced and expressive between your fingertips.
It comes with its own SL Editor software to easily setup your virtual keyboard rig. Mirroring the basic functional scheme of the SL operating system, its clear and ergonomic user interface makes creating and editing Splits and Layers a quick and easy job.
