ReMOTE, that is for Propellerheads' Reason 09/03/01
The folks at Novation were initially over-joyed by our readers comments on their gear- that is, until they read the Supernova II review - I guess the person who wrote it wasn't overly pleased the day they submitted.
Brushing that little incident smoothly away (such consummate diplomacy) We were proudly shown the new dedicated hardware controller for Propellerheads' excellent Reason software (see our review) the ReMOTE Controller.
Boasting 3 octave velocity and after touch equipped keyboard, 12 controller knobs and a rather fetching Reason display template (a quiet word to one of the designers revealed that this could be replaced with charts for other software - or even hardware)
The unit communicates via midi and once in production will sport a USB connection too. Also planned is a built-in amp and speakers to enable any laptop to jam in the park (man).
The unit was said to have the capability to communicate with many other software packages in the future.
Expected to ship in July, the ReMOTE is expected to cost around 250 UKP or around $300
