Do the X-Station templates support feedback from the software being controlled?

No, they do not. When the X-Station is used in controller mode it can send MIDI data but will not respond to it. MIDI data sent back to the X-Station from your DAW/sequencer can only be routed to the MIDI out ports on the back of the X-Station. The X-Station only communicates with your software in a one-way fashion when in controller mode. This means that if you use a control on the X-Station to control a software parameter and then use the mouse to alter that same parameter, the value of the control on the X-Station will not update after changing it with the mouse. The control will remain on the value it was at after it was last operated by hand.

Automap is a revolutionary system developed by Novation which uses two-way communication between the MIDI controller and software to get round this problem. Automap is only available on the ReMOTE SL, ReMOTE ZeRO SL and ReMOTE SL Compact models. Click here to find out more about Automap.
