The power behind Novation's SL MkII, SL Compact and Nocturn MIDI controllers is now available for your iPhone / iPod touch, providing a wireless, palm-sized MIDI controller.

Now you can use iPhone / iPod touch to control your music making software.

The Automap for iPhone / iPod touch app will be available to buy from the Apple app store mid July. Combined with Novation's free Automap 3 Standard software, or Automap 3 PRO, it provides two horizontal faders and eight buttons per page, displayed on a single iPhone / iPod touch screen. However, the number of pages – and thus the number of controls – is unlimited.

Automap lets you see how every control on your iPhone / iPod touch is assigned, both on the iPhone / iPod touch itself, and across your computer screen. Combining all this visual feedback with intelligent software browsing also helps you get to the right software fast! Control maps are automatically placed into categories depending on type (instrument, effects, mixer and so on) for quick and easy browsing and selection, Novation says.

Although Automap is designed to automatically and intelligently map to all major music making software, you will inevitably have your own unique way of working. Consequently, editing maps and re-assigning controls in Automap was designed to be quick and easy, according to Novation. Click a parameter in learn mode, then touch a control on your iPhone / iPod touch to assign it. Double-clicking 'learn' allows you to 'Click-Touch-Assign' in quick succession.

Using your iPhone / iPod touch with Automap 3 PRO has additional features.

Firstly, it manages the shortcuts of your QWERTY keyboard. It then supposedly allows you to assign almost any computer keyboard shortcut, and combinations thereof, to any of the controls on your iPhone / iPod touch. Editing maps is also improved, allowing you to simply drag parameters in the Automap Heads-up GUI from one control to another. Finally, with PRO you can use your iPhone / iPod touch alongside any other Automap compatible hardware controller.
