The knob is a bit light but it's still accurate and touch sensitive. You can set the scale of the knob to match parameters of those plugins, there are normal mode, step mode, toggle mode and reverse mode to choose. I don't have vst chainer but it should be the same. First of all, you need to open up the nocturn "launch server" and click the "plugin manager" to select those plugins that you want to control with. It will scan the vst directory (more than one directory is allowed) and thus create dlls which are also vst files with (automap) shown after the name of the plugin.
In 3.41 version, you can add "Automap UI To Plug-In" from Plug-In Manager. There will be a red "A" button shown at the bottom of the plugin, you have to press that button of the plugin that you want to control with nocturn. In v3.5, the automp UI to plugin was removed, I have no idea how it works now cause I am still with v3.41.
Ok ... finally found a little extra time to install and test out this NOCTURN unit.
First, I'm must say, its' a decent little build on this unit [for $100].
With only so inially testing ... was not getting anything working with WaveLAB ... at least to start. Then I tried it out with REAPER, and the unit hooked in and was working nicely.
I went ahead and bought the 3.5 Pro version of Automap, and now it started to work [somewhat] in WaveLAB. Still a couple of issue to figure out.
Especially ... if I have 2 or more instances of NEBULA up, Nocture does NOT seem to change over to the 'focused' plug. Not really sure what the problem or setting is supposed to be.
Now I read 'HIMHUI' post about the 3.4/ 3.5 software change. hmmm ... wonder if that is the problem, of if the focus setting is somewhere else ...
Oh well ... tomarrow hope to have more time to sort this out.
Gotta say ... having spent so many years twisting and turning knobs ... it was really nice to be able to do this with software plugs. It may sound crazy, but I felt I could listen and adjust like before... but now in front of a computer monitor. More about this later !
