    Automap 4

    Automap Control Software - instant mixer, transport and plug-in control
    So many controllers promise customers hands-on control of their music software and fail to deliver. Novation controllers are different; they come with Novation's revolutionary new Automap 4 software.

    What is it?
    Automap is a piece of software that comes with all Novation controllers. It makes it fast and simple to control your music software with knobs, buttons and faders. It has been used by many top musician/producers since 2006.

    How can it help?
    Impulse gives you control over the mixer, transport and plug-ins of all major DAWs, as well as plug-in instruments and effects that donÆt come with your DAW, like Native Instruments, Waves or FXpansion. Automap enables you to see instantly which knobs, faders and buttons are controlling which part of your software. It also makes it easy to quickly change what the knobs are controlling.

    See what you are controlling
    Automap has a software edit page that looks just like the Impulse control surface. This labels what each knob, fader and button is controlling, because with so many things in your DAW and plug-ins, it is easy to lose track of what is assigned to what. You can hide this window once you are finished with it, so you can continue making music.

    Get instant control
    ImpulseÆs controls can be used to control your plug-in instruments and effects. When you open a software instrument/effect, the 8 knobs will already be linked to commonly used parameters. If you want to control different things in your software, just press the æLearnÆ button, click on the software parameter, and wiggle the knob that you want to control it. This way you can get hands on control of exactly what you want almost instantly.

    Features:

    Create Beautifully Expressive Performances:
    ImpulseÆs keybeds feature semi-weighted action with aftertouch, whilst our unique High Rate Scan (HRS technology scans the keyboard 10,000 times per second to ensure true, accurate and expressive performance.

    Produce Music Even Faster:
    Integration with major music software allows you to produce electronic music even faster in Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, Reason, Cubase and Sonar. Sculpt your sound and mix with ease using smooth knobs, chunky faders, precision buttons, and a custom LCD screen, whilst controlling your plug-ins, instruments and effects, such as Native Instruments, Waves and FXpansion.

    Do More with Your Drum Pads:
    Create unique sequences and rhythms using pressure-sensitive drum pads to trigger arpeggios, launch clips, and warp and roll beats. These pads also function as multicoloured clip launchers, so you can tell whether clip is loaded (yellow, playing) (green, or recording) (red).

    Connect To Just About Anything:
    Its rugged and professional build quality makes Impulse tough enough to handle the most demanding live situation. Simply plug in and play on Mac or Windows without the need for a power supply. MIDI I/O means you can connect to the rest of your production gear, too.

    Make Music Straight Out of the Box:
    Impulse comes complete with Ableton Live Lite, the music production and performance software favored by countless leading artists around the world. It also contains an impressive collection of production-ready samples from highly-esteemed sample boutique, Loopmasters.

    Add Some Character:
    Impulse controllers include Bass Station software, the virtual version of the iconic analogue synth. Bass StationÆs combination of warm oscillators and fat analogue filters creates distinctive sounds that add character to your music productions.
