The Novation ReMOTE SL MIDI controller keyboard introduces a new way to control music software, with its proprietary addition to MIDI called Automap.
The keyboard features a host of controller inputs plus two large, brightly backlit 144-character LCD screens which intelligently change, along with all the controllers, to useful items when compatible software (such as Ableton Live, Reason, and Cubase) changes.
Or, as Novation’s site puts it:
Finally, recording in the dark is a thing of the past. The SL shines a light on the murky world of MIDI control by providing two giant, brightly lit LCD screens alongside an intelligent Automap mode*, which detects what instruments you have in your project and intelligently and logically maps the controls to the SLÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s front panel.
The keyboard itself is semi-weighted, velocity and aftertouch-sensitive, and comes with an assignable X/Y touchpad, joystick, and a total of 64 assignable knobs, buttons and sliders, plus 8 velocity-sensitive trigger pads, plus dedicated transport controls.
