Studiologic SL-88 Studio 88-Key Controller
The Studiologic SL-88 Studio 88-Key Controller extends the SL Controllers line providing the perfect combination of lightness and the all powerful features of the product line.
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 Studio is ready to be at the very heart of your system. All provided in a new refreshing way.
The 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.
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 then 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 shield the keybed perfectly and provide a safe grip when handling and transporting.
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 Studio 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 pushbuttons to the right of the control knob bring you back to the top-level from any location in the system with just one push.
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, 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.
With the innovative Magnetic Rail System at the rear of the SL88 Studio 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 carriers into the backrail to match the position you need for your accessory items.

As a pianist the action is good, and it's reasonably easy to assign different midi CCs to the sticks. That's just about enough value for the price as a MIDI controller, especially since this is half the price of the Keylab 88. If you like features aside from full-size keys you might be disappointed. I don't use the screen in the center, layers, or splits --- these are much easier to handle in-DAW. Aftertouch is useless -- hard to trigger and not sensitive once triggered. The left stick is less than useful, I would have preferred another X-Y stick like the right stick.
I always check FEA first for what i'm looking for.... This is a great keyboard at a great price.
