Nocturn Knock 'em Dead
Novation are kicking off the year with yet another award. In these times of economic uncertainty value for money is more important than ever. So appropriately, Novation's Nocturn scooped the award in Remix Magazine's 'Best Hardware Value' category. Remix Mag (who describe Nocturn as the "killer universal plug-in controller") were hugely impressed by its sleek, compact design and of course, the groundbreaking Automap software that comes with it.
Nocturn made its name as a plug-in controller, its eight assignable rotary encoders and eight assignable buttons make it the perfect way to get your hands on VST and AU plug-ins. But the really special feature is in Automap software's ability to 'wrap' plug-ins. This means that you can simply click on the parameter, touch the controller and it is assigned! This means no more tiresome trawling through MIDI continuous controller numbers...
We have also been hearing from people who are increasingly turning to Nocturn as the ideal small controller for Pro Tools. Nocturn is perfect for people who use an M-Box on the move as it is compact, cost effective and works fantastically with Pro Tools LE's incredible number of plug-ins
