Description

Nocturn from Novation is a hardware plug-in controller featuring Automap Universal 2.0 software, that in turn provides automatic, instant and intelligent control of all automatable plug-ins within every major sequencer, including Pro Tools. Featuring a transparent control GUI, the software places a transparent control map across the computer screen, to be recalled or hidden at will.

The controller features eight touch-sensitive rotary encoders, each equipped with a bright eleven-LED ring, which can be ideal for a laptop DJ working in a dark club environment. These are complemented by eight, user-assignable illuminated buttons and a smooth, professional 45mm crossfader. Also included is a “speed dial”, a touch-sensitive rotary encoder that instantly takes control of whatever the user’s mouse is focused on.

When a plug-in is instantiated, how the parameters are assigned to each of Nocturn’s controls is instantly visible. A click and control “learn” function is also available for quick re-assigning of controls, or for creating custom controller maps. Multiple page options mean the user can assign a potentially infinite number of parameters for each plug-in. Automap Universal also supports standard MIDI protocol, providing the same transparent display for quick and simple assigning of MIDI parameters.

Nocturn’s tactile control layout, side mounted USB socket, and ultra-low profile, allow it to sit neatly in front of a QWERTY keyboard, or on a larger keyboard, while rugged rubber grips hold it steady. Combined, Automap Universal 2.0’s transparent control GUI, and the controller’s touch sensitive dials remove issues inherent in controlling multiple instruments and effects.
