I’m looking for some insightful comments on these 3 MIDI controllers.

The Remote SL series have Automap Universal. Seems like a big plus, but does it really work as advertised?

Korg’s Kontrol49 looks pretty sharp and has the sliders which the SL Compact doesn’t have. The Akai MPK49 looks great as well, but my local shop can’t seem to get a hold of one of these and Akai’s email support left me in the dark too.

Please share your experiences. Why do you like yours, or why wouldn’t you buy it again?

Update: I went for the Novation Remote SL 37, good stuff!
