novation = crap build quality in my experience.
sound = not bad, not terribly exciting either.
Nowt wrong with the build quality of my Remote 25, although there are issues with the pickup mode, which had I known about before, I'd have walked on by... :no:tweaka said:novation = cheapo build quality, in my experience.

tweaka said:whats all that about rezn8?RezN8 said:If you are thinking down the Novation path - make sure you check out a demo version first, and make sure the pickup mode issue isn't gonna make you pull out all of your hair when you start knob twiddling. :sob:
A fix has been promised, but there's no sign of it yet
due to get a new controller kboard soon, sounds a bit ominous :unsure:
Pot/Slider Control Type (Menu Page 7)
This setting determines how he knob or slider behaves. There are two possible options :
Jump The knob or slider will immediately transmit MIDI when moved
Pickup The knob or slider will only transmit MIDI once it has passed the the position represented by the controls data vakue as stored in the Template.
Note: All the controls in the factory preset templates are set to Jump mode.
soliptic said:ps. have to ask... why not buy the v-station? Having used both I can vouch for the fact it sounds exactly the same, and the vsti one is a lot cheaper. If your only reason is that hardware is more "real" and "pro" and cooler, then dont waste your money, because you only think that until you own the stuff. Then you realise it has many hassles and drawbacks which software does not, which balances it out overall imho. Unless you specifically need one of hardware's advantages (tactility, portability / suitability for live use, resale value) dont bother, get the v-station.
