Nocturn features eight touch-sensitive rotary encoders, each equipped with a bright eleven-LED ring (ideal for laptop DJing in a dark club environment). These are accompanied by eight user-assignable illuminated buttons and a smooth, professional 45mm cross-fader. The finishing touch is Novation's unique speed dial; a touch-sensitive rotary encoder that instantly takes control of whatever your mouse is focused on!
Future Music's VerdictA revolutionary product for a great price. Almost all computer-based musicians could do with this.
Featuring a revolutionary new 'heads-up transparent control GUI', Automap Universal 2.0 places a transparent control map across your computer screen, to be recalled or hidden at will. Little or no user setup is required, and plug-in control can be customized to be laid out just the way you like it, no matter what music software you use. Simply boot up the plug-in, and you ll see at a glance how the parameters are automatically assigned to each of Nocturn s controls. An instant click and control learn function is also available for quick re-assigning of controls, or for creating your own controller map in seconds. Multiple page options mean that you can assign a potentially infinite number of parameters for each plug-in.
Automap Universal 2.0 also categorises all your control maps. A simple browsing facility lets you review all open plug-ins, then quickly switch to control any one of them. Automap Universal 2.0 also supports standard MIDI protocol, providing the same heads-up display for quick and simple assigning of MIDI parameters. This ensures that Nocturn can also control an external hardware MIDI device, any non-automatable plug-ins, or the mixer page in your sequencer. Once a MIDI map is created, it can be saved and recalled via the same map browsing facility. A growing library of maps will be available to download free from Novation's website.
Nocturn's spacious and tactile control surface, side mounted USB socket and ultra-low profile allow it to sit neatly in front of your QWERTY keyboard. Large, rugged rubber grips hold it steady whilst you let rip with your favourite music software.
The combination of Automap Universal 2.0's heads-up transparent control GUI and Nocturn's touch-sensitive dials remove the pain inherent in controlling multiple instruments and effects, allowing you to jump instantly from one plug-in to the next; so you're free to focus on what matters most - your music.
