Two backlit displays show you controller parameter names and values simultaneously
The first gigantic improvement on the ReMOTE SL 25 brings MIDI control to a new level of convenience, as well as giving the SL its name. Two large brightly-backlit 144-character LCD screens reside at the top of the front panel, which can display 16 parameter names and values simultaneously. This means that using template overlays (which get lost) or having to rely on your memory of what controls what are a thing of the past! Music creation and performance becomes as simple and pleasurable as possible. Furthermore, menu navigation on the ReMOTE SL 25 is significantly quicker as each menu page is now displayed side-by-side along the large screens for immediate access and modification. Of course, a stylish Template Editor software package is also available free of charge.
Revolutionary Automap template automatically loads application components
39 of the 40 onboard Template Memories on the ReMOTE SL 25 are factory preset (and also user programmable) so that the SL will work with all popular software applications, virtual instruments and external MIDI equipment straight out of the box. However, the remaining onboard Template is used for a new and special purpose, which is actually an infinitely expanding amount of Templates rolled into one. This cutting-edge feature, called Automap, might change the way music is made forever! When an Automap-supported application (currently Reason and Cubase SX3, Ableton Live and more with more to follow very soon) is booted up, the ReMOTE SL 25 automatically loads this intelligent template and maps all active components within the session to itself. Then, all you need to do is click once with the mouse or press one button to switch between controlling different instruments or sections of the session. Throughout the process, all information is displayed clearly on the ReMOTE SL 25 screens to make everything crystal clear.
X/Y touchpad, joystick, and a total of 56 assignable pots, encoders, sliders and buttons
As well as boasting the X/Y touchpad, joystick, a total of 56 assignable pots, encoders, sliders, and buttons and the "best-feeling keys on the market", the ReMOTE SL 25 also offers highly responsive trigger pads. These allow you to create even more dynamic performance effects, playing drums or chord stabs through a software sampler, for example.
Incredibly easy to use yet incredibly affordable!
You'll be astonished at the usability and revolutionary nature of the ReMOTE SL 25, in addition to the surprising affordability. This controller is a must-have for anyone serious about making or performing music and wanting the MIDI control process to be as painless as possible!
