Both versions of Automap from Novation, have been updated to bring integration with Propellerhead's new Record software.

On top of this, the v3.2 revisions of Automap Pro and Automap Standard feature enhanced support for Reason, Novation says.

Both versions of Automap now feature the following, according to Novation:

• Support for Novation's Automap product range with Propellerhead's Reason & Record
Now, unlike before, parameter names and values are reported back to Novation hardware controllers, and the mapping of hardware controls changes when the user switches between, for example, the mixer and a Combinator rack. Previously, mappings using Reason's 'Remote Override' function were static. Now, individual Reason Rack and Mixer parameters can be learned to any hardware control, wherever the user desires.

• Control-range editing
The range of the controls in Automap can now be edited. This means that instead of covering an arbitrary range of between 0 and 1, Automap knobs and sliders can be programmed to operate over a restricted range that doesn't include the whole of the parameter's available values. In practice, this can be applied to a soft synth's filter cutoff parameter, where the user only wants to vary the frequency over a limited range, not its full span.

• New Button & Control types
There's a number of new Button types: Normal, Momentary, Toggle and Step, which help the user quickly set up the way they want to command their software without having to manually configure complex button characteristics. There are also new features to invert a controller's behavior, reversing the direction of control in a simple click.

• Support for Automap for iPhone & iPod Touch
Automap v3.2 is the first to support the Automap for iPhone/iPod Touch App (available now from Apple's Appstore).

• Enhanced Plug-in Manager
Automap's plug-in manager is where users can select and deselect the plug-ins that they wish to control. In version 3.2, this has been streamlined to allow multiple plug-in selection and deselection, and there's a search tool to help track down specific software instruments and audio effects.

• Cursor-driven Navigation
Users can use the cursor keys on their computer keyboard to scroll through the settings in the Automap Edit window, making it quicker and easier to navigate than ever before.

• Improved Factory Restore function
An embedded function for restoring the factory settings of Automap-compatible hardware is now included.

• Home Page Icon
There's now a 'Home' button in the Edit window to return the user to the Startup view.

The Pro version (available to buy now for £19.99/$29.99/€25 from www.novationmusic.com) has the following new features, alongside those already mentioned:

• QWERTY Keyboard Control
Users can now send ASCII (QWERTY) keyboard shortcuts from their Automap-comptible Novation hardware, for ultimate control over their music software.

Both Standard and Professional versions of Automap v3.2 are available to download now, from www.novationmusic.com.
