Novation Brings AutoMap To The iPhone

Novation has announced that Automap has now come to the iPhone and iPod touch.

Combined with Novation's Automap 3 software, it provides two horizontal faders and eight buttons per page, displayed on a single iPhone / iPod touch screen. The number of pages, and thus controls, is unlimited.

Key features:

  • Turn your iPhone / iPod touch into a MIDI controller, with multiple faders and buttons easily assigned to parameters in any software that allows MIDI control, and even some that don't.
  • Instant, wireless, palm-sized control of all automatable VST, AU or Pro Tools format plug-ins in any DAW.
  • See at a glance how every control on your iPhone / iPod touch is assigned, both on the iPhone / iPod touch itself, and across your computer screen.
  • Make and delete assignments directly from your computer screen using "Click-Touch-Assign" facilities.
  • Ideal for remote track arming and muting, transport and master level controls in a growing number of supported DAWs. (Control these elements in non-supported DAWs using separate dedicated Automap systems, or your own custom mappings.)
  • 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.

Note: Automap for iPhone / iPod touch works in conjunction with Automap, which needs to be installed on your computer. You can upgrade the Automap software on your computer from Standard (which is free) to PRO, by downloading and purchasing from

Additional features in Automap PRO include:

  • KEYSTROKE ASSIGNMENTS Place the shortcut power of nyour QWERTY keyboard in your iPhone / iPod touch. Automap 3 PRO can assign almost any computer keyboard shortcut, and combinations thereof.
  • MULTIPLE DEVICE SUPPORT Use your iPhone / iPod touch alongside any other Automap compatible hardware controller, perfectly integrated for seamless control. DRAG AND DROP Make control re-assignment directly from your computer screen by simply dragging and dropping controls from within the Automap heads-up GUI.

Pricing And Availability:

Novation AutoMap for the iPhone/iPod touch is available now for $2.99.
