Novation ReMOTE SL COMPACT

Novation has released the ReMOTE SL COMPACT, the first keyboard to provide an affordable route to automatic, instant and intelligent control of all major sequencers and all automatable plug-ins.

The ReMOTE SL COMPACT features Automap Universal, Novation’s unique sequencer and plug-in control protocol, providing automatic control of any automatable plug-in within any sequencer. Automap Universal removes the pain inherent in old school MIDI control, leaving the artist free to enjoy making music. Simply open up a plug-in and watch the parameters appear on the SL’s screens.

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.
  • Dedicated transport controls – Control the sequencer’s start, stop, loop, record, forward and rewind actions, direct from the MIDI controller, reducing reliance on mouse and screen.
  • MIDI I/O – Easy control over hardware synths, or enables an expansion of the control surface.
  • Xcite+ bundle – Includes a host of exciting software solutions, including Ableton LIve Lite 6 and over 1.5 gigs of samples and loops.

The ReMOTE SL COMPACTS costs £219.95 inc. VAT for the 25 key version, and the 49 key costs £269.95 inc. VAT.

    Do you use the trigger pads? They seem a little bigger on the SL, but unfortunately there’s no X/Y touchpad.

    Hi Adrian,
    Novation’s plug-in automap feature should take care of that.
