It puts the "control" In MIDI Controller.

Based on its name, the Novation ReMote SL COMPACT MIDI Controller may sound like a wireless, handheld device. While it is highly portable, it still needs a USB cable to connect to your DAW. But the idea of a remote control isn't too far off if you are referring more to the word "control" because this 49-note keyboard has a distinct way of taking command of all major sequencers and automatable plug-ins.

The first key element that separates the ReMOTE SL COMPACT 49-key MIDI Controller from its peers is its lengthy, 144-character blue LED backlit LCD display, which shows up to eight assigned parameters at once, with the vital information presented in a logistical fashion. Secondly, the included Automap Universal software cuts out most user setup as sequencer controls, and VST/AU parameters are intuitively assigned and mapped the moment they are booted up. Available parameters then pop up on the screen at which point you can personalize plug-in controls with ReMOTE SL's simple click and control "learn" function. While in Automap Universal Mode, SL's unique PAC (pointer-assigned control) technology combined with its speed dial efficiently provide touch-sensitive control of any parameter on which the mouse pointer rests with an unlimited number of controls.

If you're more of a hands-on person, the Manual Template mode provides 64 different assignable parameters through eight encoders and eight buttons with LEDs combined with eight Group select switches. There's also eight large, velocity-sensitive trigger pads that can be used to trigger samples or help refine a beat you've been messing with. Last, but certainly not least, the Novation MIDI Controller gives you separate, assignable pitch and mod wheels to play and a 49-key, 4-octave semi-weighted keyboard featuring aftertouch.

Small, portable, and intelligently designed, the ReMOTE SL COMPACT MIDI Controller makes sense in more ways then one.

Crashes your computer

Comments about Novation ReMOTE SL COMPACT 49-Key USB MIDI Controller:

I wish it worked as well as it looked. Every thing SEEMS to work until you try to actually record in Reason. Reason freezes up and crashes my computer. If it doesnt crash , it freezes the whole computer, take your pick. If it does not freeze , or crash like its supposed to , it resets all the peramiters in the song, like the tempo, and then writes automation for all the changes it made... making your recording useless or in need of serious editing. This POS was replaced by a MK11 version a month or two ago, I suggest you try that or mabey just some thing else entirely. I almsot forgot to mention the "mpc" pads, they are completly useless because the sensitivity is so diferent from pad to pad.. some you have to hit soft , some you have to hit very hard, to get the same velocity. In sumation , this product is completely useless .

Comments about Novation ReMOTE SL COMPACT 49-Key USB MIDI Controller:

I dont know why the previous user has such a problem with this controller but from the day i got it i had nothing but succsess in using this unit. Works just fine with Reason,Reaper you need to know what you are doing with any controller and if software that you have is not listed in the template presets than get ready to do some manual templates which is easier with automap than any other controller out there.
