Novation Nocturn Compact Intelligent Plug-in Controller – specs, price, availability, video


From what I’ve seen coming out of the NAMM show, this looks to be the hot controller.

  • Automap Universal 2.0
  • 8 touch-sensitive rotary encoders. Each encoder has a bright eleven-LED ring.
  • 8 user-assignable illuminated buttons
  • Smooth 45mm cross-fader
  • A touch-sensitive rotary encoder ("Speed Dial") that takes control of whatever your mouse is focused on!
  • The buzz is this baby will only set you aback $100!
  • Due out in April

Probably the most interesting aspect of this controller is bundled software that features a "heads-up transparent control GUI" that places a "transparent control map across your computer screen, to be recalled or hidden at will."


According to the video below, the "GUI" will be supported in future updates for the ReMote SL and ReMote SL Compact.
