Nocturn Keyboard is an intelligent plug-in/sequencer controller. It has a high quality keyboard, with 8 drum pads and a total of 33 assignable controls, which allow you to get hands-on control of your plug-in instruments, effects and sequencer.
Nocturn Keyboard comes with Novation's 'Automap' control software which graphically shows you exactly what each knob and button is controlling in your plug-in/sequencer. Automap also enables you to instantly assign many parameters by simply clicking on them and touching a control!
How Nocturn keyboard is different
• The Problem:
Most keyboard controllers have two big problems: The idea of being able to control software parameters with knobs and buttons sounds great. However, the hassle of assigning them, and remembering what they are assigned to becomes so tedious that you always end up turning back to your mouse.
• The Solution:
Nocturn Keyboard's Automap control software solves both these problems. To assign controllers, simply click on the parameter, touch a knob or button, and it is assigned!
It also enables you to keep track of what is assigned to what - instead of using a small monochrome LCD screen, Nocturn Keyboard displays control information where you really need it: on your computer monitor. The Automap software graphically displays Nocturn's control surface. The controllers themselves also tell you what is going on: LED rings around the 8 encoders show their current settings, and LED's behind the buttons tell you if they are on or off.
• 33 MIDI assignable controls
8 trigger pads, 8 dials, 14 buttons, modulation wheel. Sustain and expression pedal control can also be added.
• See exactly what you are controlling
Automap software allows you to instantly 'learn' controls to plug-ins. The software edit page graphically displays Nocturn Keyboard's control surface on your computer monitor
• A control surface that feeds information back to you
LEDs around encoders and behind buttons show you the values of parameters on your plug-in/sequencer without having to look up.
• Touch sensitive controls
Touch sensitive controls mean you can reveal what they are controlling, or re-assign them, without having to move or change their value.
