Novation introduces Nocturn controller and Automap Universal 2.0
Nocturn main features
- 8+1 touch sensitive rotary encoders with LED ring
- 8 user-assignable illuminated buttons
- 45mm crossfader
- Automap Universal 2.0 included
- Side mounted USB port
Automap Universal 2.0 is also compatible with the ReMOTE SL series controllers (including COMPACT).
From Audio Tech News:
Featuring a revolutionary “heads-up transparent control GUI”, Automap Universal 2.0 allows you to view all parameters simultaneously on your computer screen, as well as on an SL or SL COMPACT’s huge screens. The size of the window can be modified, as well as the degree of transparency, so a permanent view of the GUI is possible without interfering with your regular setup.
Automap Universal 2.0 also categorises all your control maps. A simple browsing facility allows you to view mapped plug-ins by type, then quickly switch to control any one of them.
Novation Nocturn and Automap Universal 2.0 will be showcased at the NAMM show. The Nocturn should be available around the end of January for about £70 GBP.
