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 SLs front panel.
Running along the top of the ReMOTE SL front panel are two 144character screens which can display up to 16 parameter names and values simultaneously. This makes controlling in the dark a thing of the past and does away with Template overlays or having to remember the function of each control. It also makes navigating though menus simple as each page is laid out side by side and edited using the buttons or knobs directly below.
This new intelligent mode is set to revolutionise the way you make music When an Automapsupported application boots up currently Reason 3 Cubase SL/SX 3 Nuendo 3 Logic Pro 7 and Ableton Live 5 with more on their way the SL loads up the Automap Template and all the parameter assignment is done for you showing you everything clearly on the gigantic screens. All you have to do to switch between controlling different instruments or areas of your session is click once with the mouse or press one button on the SL depending on the application. Go to the Automap page here to find out more.
Brand new to Novation controllers are these dynamic trigger pads for sketching out beats or bashing out samples. Each pad can be calibrated any way the user desires with sensitivity and assigned data both fully programmable. For example the pads can be set up as velocitysensitive MIDI notes or buttons assigned to a CC number where the value of that number is defined by the strength the pad is hit.

The ergonomically designed front panel is inviting and simple to use. And its all there 8 rotary potentiometers 8 sliders 8 rotary encoders and 24 switches that are entirely programmable. All controls can be named and memorised as a collection with a group template name then saved in any one of the 64 template memories.
