No. I own a Radium 49 keyboard from M-Audio, but looking back I should have gone with this since I primarily input by notation and my keyboard is getting awfully dusty (it doesn't help that I have two left hands and can only vaguely bang on the keys.) This looks like a great option for non-keyboard savy users, and the price is right.
I have the Behringer BCF2000 control surface. 8 motorized sliders and 8 (multiplexed to 32) knobs and a bunch of buttons. I primarily am tinkiering with it to control the pameters of our image processing software app, but it's cheap enough to get a couple to play around with.
If I can choose between knobs and sliders, I prefer sliders. Therefore I consider the Behringer a good alternative.
I will go with the novation remote 25. Its more expensive but has a 2 octave keyboard and looks like the ideal compagnion for my Laptop...
