The Nocturn 25 from Novation is an intelligent plug-in/sequencer controller, sporting a 25 velocity-sensitive key-bed manufactured by Fatar. In addition to the keys, the controller has 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.

The included Automap control software solves the hassle of assigning parameters to various controls. To assign a control, simply click on the parameter, touch a knob or button, and it is assigned. The software also enables you to keep track of what is assigned to what by displaying it on your computer monitor. There is no longer any need to sift through long lists of MIDI continuous controller numbers.

The Automap software graphically displays Nocturn's control surface, while the controllers themselves also provide status information via the LED rings around the 8 encoders. Additionally, Automap can integrate with Logic, ProTools, Digital Performer and any other HUI compatible sequencers, using the HUI control protocol.

Automap will automatically assign knobs and buttons to parameters on a huge number of the most popular plug-ins. The Nocturn keyboard will also automatically assign controllers to mixer and transport functions in all major DAW/sequencers. Novation is constantly building more maps which are available on the community pages of the company's website.

Velocity-sensitive, keyboard from Fatar, with assignable after-touch that allows the keyboard to feel more like playing an instrument rather than a computer peripheral
Brightly lit 11 segment LED rings around the 8 smooth encoders, and backlit buttons throughout provide instant visual feedback for every physical control
All 8 oversized encoders are touch sensitive, bringing up mapping information and allowing you to "touch" in automation data on DAW's with a "touch"' mode
Automap control software allows you to instantly "learn" controllers to plug-ins. The GUI graphically displays Nocturn Keyboard's control surface on your computer monitor, enabling you to see exactly what is assigned to what, without using a tiny LCD screen
Eight "softfeel" velocity sensitive drum pads that can do more than just trigger notes and sketch drum patterns - all can be assigned to control software parameters
Total of 33 MIDI assignable controls including the 8 trigger pads, 8 dials, 14 buttons and the modulation wheel. Sustain and expression pedal control can also be added
A 9th encoder is a unique "Speed Dial" which allows you to instantly change the value of any parameter the cursor is pointing at, with no assignment needed whatsoever
Powered via USB saving valuable plug sockets. It can also be powered down without being unplugged, preserving battery power in computer notebooks
