I will take the Novation Remote 25 SL MKII any day over the Impulse that Novation makes because it has a nice build to it. It seems like it was made to be more portable and the knobs are stronger than they are on the Impulse. There are also way more functions that you can assign on the SL MKII model from Novation. This controller is powered by your computer via USB and it comes with Automap 3 PRO but I have never used it. If you want to have full control over your DAW from your fingertips this board can do it for you quickly and with it being so portable you will have a full production studio at your fingertips no matter where you go.


There are a total of 37 buttons that you can use to sync with your DAW via MIDI and they all have LED lights. The LED lights not only look cool but they are great for working in a dim lit space. They keys on this controller are semi weighted but they don’t feel like they are. I do wish they had a little more weight to them though.


The MKII does have a dedicated transport control with MIDI in, MIDI out, MIDI thru and USB connections. You can run it on a Mac or a PC as long has you have a newer system like Vista or higher for PC.
If you want the MKII to be powered by a wall adapter you will have to purchase one separately. They are pretty expensive though so it is best just to let your computer provide the power. This unit is well built, but it is still light enough to be portable. This controller also comes in the 61 key and 49 key models and they are exactly like this model is. The MKII is better than the Impulse, it does cost more but it is worth it.
