a rather simple standard remote is announced at novation, no more text-displays – just like the others – well what I always liked is the display that tells you what knobs is doing what – looks like they might want to go back to a standard minimal set of drum pads, 8 knobs and faders like most other competitors got. ok, the display can show more than a number – but it will no longer inform the user so you have to find out yourself, but they also did a new automap version 4.0 – the new version will go for 259 (25 keys) to 339€ for the 4 octave one and 399€ for the 5 octave one, so there’s again no 3 octave version.
just hope this is a “cheaper line” that will not replace the lovable Remote SL Series which had already sacrificed one display but for touch faders and LED rings which “fair” for some of us. I am still with the Mk1.
the idea here is the automap window tells what buttons controls what – basically it has a new look.so ok- it gets clearer why they leave out the display – looks like they got 2 window areas where one being the “overview” and the other one below shows the knobs parameter names. still not the same has having at directly near the controllers. there’s a note about iPad – hope for a real iPad app, not just the iPhone one which can’t show enough controls for size reasons..
