Novation releases Automap 3 Software    11th February 2009

Novation has released Automap3 Standard and Automap 3 Pro, the latest incarnations of its intelligent software system. Automap is unique to Novation's MIDI controllers, and has now been enhanced with a wealth of eagerly anticipated features. Until now Automap had focused on plug-in control, but exciting developments bring a new level of DAW control.

No matter what music software you use, Automap offers an instant controlling solution for all your plug-ins. It supports VST, AU and Pro Tools (TDM/RTAS) plug-in formats (TDM/RTAS support is currently Mac only. PC will follow soon). It allows hardware controllers to interact with plug-in instruments and effects. Opening up any Automappable plug-in instantly maps parameters to physical controls on Novation's SL- and Nocturn controllers. These can be re-assigned using an ultra-quick 'learn' mode, which simply involves clicking the on-screen parameter and touching the desired hardware controller. In addition to DAW control templates on board the SL range (mixer, transport etc) Automap 3 comes with full HUI implementation for control of HUI compatible DAWs such Logic, Pro Tools and Digital Performer.

Automap Features:

  • Automatic plug-in mapping: All automatable VST, AU or Pro Tools format plug-ins need just be opened in any DAW for instant control.
  • Heads-up transparent GUI: Automap provides a transparent control map across your computer screen, so you can see at a glance how every parameter is assigned.
  • Learn and Clear modes: Make and delete assignments directly from your computer screen using lightning-fast click and touch facilities.
  • Automatic Mixer control: A growing number of supported DAWs allow comprehensive control of the mixer via the Automap software (Non-supported DAWs can be controlled using separate dedicated Automap systems).
  • Plug-in and Mixer map browsing facility: Get to the right software fast. Control maps are automatically placed into categories depending on type (instrument, mixer etc.) for quick and easy browsing and selection with hardware or software.
  • MIDI integration: 16 standard MIDI control maps (totaling 2048 separate controls) can be created to be used alongside plug-in and mixer maps - ideal for software with a MIDI learn facility.

Automap 3 is available in two forms, Automap 3 Standard and Automap 3 PRO. Automap 3 Standard is a free download and Automap 3 PRO (which has extra features listed below) is available to download for 19.99.

Automap 3 Pro has the following benefits over Automap 3 Standard:

  • Multiple device support: Automap 3 Pro supports multiple devices, so numerous Novation controllers can be used side by side.
  • Keystroke Assignments: Automap 3 Pro can assign almost any computer keyboard shortcuts to hardware controls. For example arrow key functions can now be assigned to hardware controls, allowing you to flick between tracks using buttons on your SL/Nocturn. You could also zoom in and out, open windows or create and jump to markers in your DAW.
  • Drag and Drop: With 'PRO' you can drag and drop control mappings and control map groups in the GUI, allowing you to re-assign knobs, faders and buttons by simply grabbing them with the mouse and dropping them on the new controller.
  • XY Pad Control: Fully Auto-mappable XY Pad control, expression pedal, control pedal and drum pad control. The Automap server can now assign parameters to all these controllers using the ultra-quick learn facility.
  • Autoview Mode: Optional Autoview mode means that the GUI only becomes visible when a controller is touched, then it disappears again allowing you to get back to your DAW.
