The Novation ReMOTE 37 is a 37 key midi controller featuring 16 knobs and 8 sliders as well as LCD screens and intelligent Automap mode, which recognizes which instruments are plugged in and maps the controls automatically.
This is a great and often overlooked MIDI keyboard controller. Its strength is in AutoMAP, which senses which program you currently have activated on your computer, and automatically changes the controls on the ReMOTE SL accordingly. The display above the controls changes too, so you can always see what each control is, well, controlling. With AutoMAP and the great display, you can easily switch between programs and always know exactly what each knob or slider is going to do when you move it. As if this weren't enough, the keyboard has a great action - that is, the keys feel great to play. You may see other controllers that are less expensive, but I doubt any of them play as well as this one does. Love it! Note: This particular model has been discontinued - its successor is the ReMOTE SL2. I only write recommendations on items I've actually owned, and I haven't upgraded to the newest version yet, but it's definitely on my list and has some very nice new features in addition to the features I listed above.
