A Compact, Portable Control Surface that's Very Effective!

The Novation Nocturn compact control surface provides excellent software control for DJs and desktop recordists alike! Nocturn's eight touch-sensitive rotary encoders are accompanied by eight user-assignable buttons, a 45mm professional cross-fader, and a touch-sensitive rotary encoder that takes control of whatever your mouse is focused on. It includes Automap Universal 2.0, which provides automatic and intelligent control of all automatable plug-ins within every major sequencer. Take control with the Nocturn!

Novation Nocturn Control Surface with Automap Universal 2.0 at a Glance:
  • Control surface
  • Automap Universal 2.0
  • MIDI mapping

Control surface
Nocturn features eight touch-sensitive rotary encoders, each equipped with a bright eleven-LED ring (ideal for laptop DJ-ing 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!

Automap Universal 2.0
Featuring a revolutionary '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 reassigning 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.

MIDI mapping
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 means Nocturn is capable of handling 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. 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.

Novation Nocturn Control Surface with Automap Universal 2.0 Features:
  • 8 Assignable Rotary Encoders — Infinite Rotation, touch-sensitive, LED feedback
  • 1 Speed Dial Encoder — Infinite Rotation, dual-function, touch-sensitive, LED feedback
