Lets you get the most out of all of your favorite plug-ins.
Novation's most affordable hardware controller to date, Nocturn is an intelligent plug-in controller
that promises to unleash the full potential of all your favorite instruments and effects. Featuring the latest Automap Universal
2.0 software, exclusive to Novation controllers, Nocturn provides automatic, instant and intelligent control of all automatable
plug-ins within every major sequencer, including Pro Tools.
Nocturn features eight touch-sensitive rotary encoders,
each equipped with a bright eleven-LED ring (ideal for laptop DJs working 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.
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 exactly
the way you want it, no matter what music software you use. Just 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 categorizes all
your control maps. A simple browsing facility lets you review all open plug-ins, then quickly switch to controlling one of
them. Automap Universal 2.0 also supports standard MIDI protocol, providing the same transparent display for quick and simple
assigning of MIDI parameters. This ensures Nocturn can also turn its hand to controlling a hardware MIDI device, any non-automatable
plug-ins, or your sequencer mixer. Once a 'MIDI map' is created, it can be saved and recalled via the same map browsing facility.
A growing number of maps will be available to download from www.novationmusic.com
Nocturn's spacious and tactile control
layout, side-mounted USB socket and ultra-low profile allow it to sit neatly in front of your QWERTY keyboard or on a larger
keyboard such as the SL61. Large, rugged rubber grips hold it steady while you let rip with your favorite music software.
Automap Universal 2.0's heads up transparent control GUI and Nocturn's touch sensitive dials remove the hassle inherent in
controlling multiple instruments and effects, allowing you to flow intuitively from one plug-in to the next, leaving you free
to focus on what matters most — your music.
