Be the first to review this product


Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview



The ReMOTE SL COMPACT MIDI controller is the first keyboard to provide an affordable route to automatic, instant and intelligent control of all major sequencers and all automatable plug-ins. The SL COMPACT’s giant 144-character screen displays up to eight assigned parameters at once, with the essential data laid out logically right before the user’s eyes.

Automap Universal software ensures that little or no user setup is required. Sequencer controls are automatically mapped to the SL COMPACT the moment the sequencer boots up, whilst all VST or AU parameters are intuitively assigned as soon as a plug-in opens. In addition, an instant click and control ‘learn’ function is available for quick custom assigning, providing personalised plug-in control. The SL COMPACT’s unique PAC (pointer-assigned control) technology combined with its ‘speed dial’ also help to maximise efficiency by providing tactile control of any parameter on which the mouse pointer rests in Automap Universal mode.

In Automap Universal mode, the number of controls is unlimited. In Manual Template mode, the eight encoders and eight buttons with LEDs combine with eight Group select switches to provide 64 different assignable parameters. Eight large, velocity-sensitive trigger pads are also available, ideal for triggering samples or sketching out beats.

With its 25- or 49- key (2- or 4- Octave) professional, semi-weighted keyboard featuring aftertouch, the SL COMPACT upholds Novation’s philosophy of designing real instruments rather than mere computer peripherals. The SL COMPACT provides a truly focused and highly portable MIDI controlling solution through its dedicated transport controls, assignable pitch / mod wheels, and USB bus powering. Novation’s pioneering Automap Universal technology, the huge screen and an unrivalled control set ensure that the ReMOTE SL COMPACT is the only choice for the demanding, modern music maker in search of an intuitive MIDI controller that won’t break the bank. With the SL COMPACT, artists are free to focus on what matter most – their music.

What is Automap Universal?

Automap universal is Novation's unique sequencer and plug-in control protocol, providing automatic control of any automatable plug-in within any sequencer. Automap Universal removes the pain inherent in old school MIDI control, leaving the artist free to enjoy making music. Simply open up a plug-in and watch the parameters appear on the SL's screens. Every plug-in is given a 'learn' mode for easy and instantaneous mapping of controls - simply click the software parameter, then move a hardware control to automatically assign. In addition, open up any major sequencer and the mixer controls, as well as many other session parameters, are instantly mapped to the ReMOTE SL. A single button allows you to switch between controlling different instruments and the mixer, with all names and values displayed clearly across huge 144-character LCD screens.
