Novation Remote SL Compact 49
I prcise I speak of the Remote SL Compact 49 but it is not in the list when I post on 25.
Carctristiques: the automap! it's really a good idea and works well
the pads have also guided my choice.
Display: we know what changes
Finally, the quality Novation. Midi In and Out USB. Expression and sustain pedals made.


The touch is on it is not the Studiologic touch heavy. That said, it is largely in the average. In fact we do not need forcment a standard heavy touch all the time. Besides the objective of the Remote SL Compact is not only to control a virtual piano. It is true that this important aspect m'tait but frankly seen CHARACTERISTICS proposed by Novation I had to make this concession. I get a 88-key touch heavy when I have the useful and especially when I have more space, +). I tried other keyboards: axiom, korg kontrol, cme, edirol. Honntement the innovation is placed in the first axiom of cts, trs trs trslgrement in touch heavier (in the range of MIDI keyboards that is).
The automap does wonders but you still have a look at the manual (in French, well translated) and educational videos that clearly prsentent CHARACTERISTICS main keyboard. The possibilities are vast, it is normal to dwell a little on the machine.
Installation (Windows XP, Core 2 Duo, 2GB ram, sound card TC Electronic Konnekt 24 D) is done without problem and quickly.
The control of Sonar is well trs. It's really nice to be able to accder mutes, solos, weapons registration, volume, pan etc ... directly on the keyboard and everything visual for the display says it all. Excellent.
Another great find: the encoding speed dial. It moves the mouse over any CONTRL (rso, attack, more or less zoom etc ...) is pressed and it acts on The argument directly. Practice.


Use for a week.
Likes: the display, the pads (although they rgler diffrent vlocits), the simple architecture, the touch pretty good finally (in the style of synth type keyboard) the immense possibilities of the control of the sounds, the Automap, and design because the machine is as beautiful and well finished.
Cons: one octave supplmentaire ... j'hsitait with the axiom 61 and Fatar VMK 161 (the AKAI MPK 49 has a touch ultra lightweight stocks clearly did not follow ...). Finally, the innovation has won over as port forward (automap). The axiom is a good report quality price trs. But innovation is a line above. So I sacrificed ... for an octave higher. As for the keyboard, great touch keyboard will come a day heavy Paula remote. So no regrets.
I really rflchi before buying and frankly I do not regret. This keyboard is a Russianness, versatile and well-Designed. Thank you novation.

- The touch keyboard is it nice? Should your use?

I am not a pianist, however, I have already tested several synths and keyboards masters to make me a good idea of ​​differences in the hit. That of compact Remote compares with a good touch type keyboard (like the Yamaha DX7 for example) it is superior to all the controllers I've tried so far (Akai, Edirol, M-Audio Berhinger Korg).
It suits me perfectly

- The general configuration is simple?

I use it with my Macbook Pro, I only follow what the manual said, the whole thing happened very quickly without any problem

- The selection of MIDI channels, patches is easy?

I should mention that on the same week I switched to Mac, Live 7 and I adopted the Novation. So I had to get used to a new OS and a new sequencer and then play with the selections of MIDI channels, patches and company ... I had to spend a few evenings reading the manual Live (500 pages) and somewhat less remote than the 49 but it works easily, Thanks for Novation Automap Universal.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Super clear, in French on the Novation site, simply download it to get an idea. There are also plenty of videos tutorials on how to use the controller.


- For how long have you been using it?

3 weeks

- What thing do you like most/least about it?

+: Super-wide screen that allows you to name just above the encoders
+: The touch keyboard
+: The rugged construction
-: The hit of the 8 pads hard enough (less pleasant than the pads of the M-Audio AXIOM)

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?

At the hit, I + / - tried all the models that are found most often.
Level of use with a sequencer, no.

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?

I buy in England (super pro site very very fast in my experience) at a price of 239 pounds when the pound was at its lowest, or 270 € with delivery. I therefore value for money excellent. And even for 350 € (price usually found in Belgium) I think it is good value for money.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

With my experience of 3 weeks, and yes ... necessarily Thank you to Djangowes, your review convinced me after purchase I am not disappointed.
