ReMOTE SL Compact - MIDI Control Keyboard
Recently purchased this 49-Key MIDI controller keyboard (ex-wishlist item). Novation's ReMOTE SL Compact is a four-octave MIDI controller that features Automap Universal. Although i am not a virtuoso keyboard player, I found the semi-weighted keys a delight to play. I was a little confused by the ReMOTE SL vs. SL 'Compact'. After reading the specs, I figured that the SL Compact was for me because of the speed-dial rotary, single screen, and assignable drum pads. Other than that, the SL differs with more sliders, an 'X'pression pad, and a pitch-mod joystick. Nice features, but I usually end-up breaking those kinds of things. The SL Compact's endless rotary is a must for certain parameters. The Automap Universal is a break-through and should hopefully end the old-fashioned way of programming and sending controller changes. Key Features Automap Universal Instant control over sequencers and plug-ins. Automap Universal removes the pain and time involved in assigning MIDI parameters. Giant 144-character LCD screen Frees the artist from being chained to the computer screen, placing all the essential data right alongside the relevant controls. Semi-weighted keyboard with after-touch Delivers the feeling of playing an instrument, rather than a computer peripheral. Speed dial and PAC technology Ultra-fast software control for composers and performers alike; at a click, the speed dial takes control of whatever the mouse is focused on Huge array of controls suitable for every need The artist has the exact control setup they desire, no matter how complex the plug-in. Large programmable drum pads Eradicates the need for separate drumpad triggers, providing the ideal platform for sketching out beats or triggering samples. Source: http://www.novationmusic.com/
