Novation ReMOTE 25 LE
- Excellent keyboard
- Thick but solid feeling, still portable.
- Power hungry
- Blue backlight
Too early to tell, but the keyboard!!! Chunky and with an excellent feel. 16 templates, including a Logic one. Transport controls, knobs, buttons, you know, the usual. A good looking and easy to use template editor too. And, still fits in my backpack.
I am getting familiar with Novation's products bit by bit and I found the RLE25 experience familiar. My only gripe is, you guessed it, the blue-backlit screen.
Very little to report. The action is excellent and I use this little keyboard more often than my previous 49 key keyboard. I've hooked up the transport controls to Logic and I enjoy one-touch recording on the fly. Loving it.
For all honesty's sake, internally the key contacts are similar to my previous Edirol PCR-M1, with one exception - they work. I did go through a glitch with it, and had to open it, and blow the dust and close it again.
Mac users, plug-in your laptop to AC power, or the device won't start (lights are on, not recognised by computer though). (Don't ask me?)
