Novation Ultranova software allows artists to use Nocturn Keyboards with Automap to act as a data hub for an entire production rig. That's what Dino Soldo uses as he plays numerous instruments live for big starts such as Lionel Richie and Beyonce...So if its good enough for these artists, then it's gotta be good enough for everyone. For those of you who thought Novation only made Dicer or DJ products, you are mistaken as Novation makes excellent software and great keyboards as well. Check the press release to see the many functions of Novation that you may never thought even existed.
