USB MIDI controller, audio interface and Novation Class synth 10/05/04
Novation X-25 - you should see the front...
We were told about this some time ago, almost long enough to have forgotten, but joy of joys - Novation have made this a reality.
The ReMote 25 the MIDI controller whose controls were modeled on a classic subtractive synth soon became the ReMote 25 audio - with added audio interface was then cunningly transmogrified thanks to extra on board DSP into a Novation K-class synth. That's right, the controls actually control a 3 oscillator, 8-voice subractive virtual synth that operates independently of your host computers horse-power.
The new X-Station 25 is shipping later this month at an expected retail price of $799/749 Euros.
A 49 and 61 key version will become available later this spring
