Default Nocturn problem

Ok, so finally got chance to install my automap software and run the new Novation Nocturn.. And, I think, much like that parrot in the Monty Python sketch.. it's an ex-Nocturn.. deceased.. dead as !!

Software installed ok.. automap wrapping done.. hardware plugged in (tried both USB sockets).. booted Logic.. picked an autowrapped plug-in.. and..NOTHING..
No lovely blue lights, no automap software appearing.. Hmphhh

Gentlemen, am I doing something simply wrong.. or is it indeed an "ex-parrot"?

If you force load the AutomapServer software (in the Applications folder) what happens? Does the box light up?

Tis odd Modz...

My Automap software starts automatically, if either of these two events happen)

1) I plug the nocturn in
2) I start Logic 8

You can manually start the Automap software in your applications folder. The nocturn itself is designed not to switch on and draw power from the USB, until the Automap loads. That sounds like a contradiction, but it's how it works. If you quit the automap software, the nocturn turns off...

Thanks T3 and Ed.. T3 I launched the AM software from the Apps folder as you suggested and a dialog box came up about there been a 'shared manager' problem (I think.. it flashed on so quick).. It prompted me to drop an illustrated file into an indicated folder, enter administrator p/wd and restart.. Which I did.. Et voila.. It lives!

Much obliged gentlemen

Just popping Monarch's original 'heads up' link in this thread too..
Major props go out to Rob Jones at Focusrite/Novation for putting this great series of tutorials together for the Nocturn..

Default Problem with Nocturn

Hi, everyone. I'm a newbie to this forum and in need of advice regarding the nocturn. Just got my nocturn from DV yesterday. I've loaded up the setup cd and followed the setup instructions but none of the plug-ins in the Tracktion sequencer are showing up in the field for wrapping. BTW, how come the product advert in DV website says it comes with Automap 2.0 yet mine came with Automap 1.0?

May be that you have an older unit. Mine also came with version 1 automap. It is a free download from Novation, and does not require registration.

www.novation.com

As for Traktion not autompaaing, if Traktion is like any plugins you wish to use...they will have to be wrapped using Automap's software to let them take control. In Logic, it shows two version of the same plug: Eg RP Predator and then directly underneath is RP Predator (Automap)

I don't use Traktion, so I can't help more. Sorry !

Hi Enrico
Firstly, welcome to the DV Forums..

When Automap scanned my system (based around Logic and now Pro Tools), the plug ins that came up were only the third party ones, ie, with regard to Logic, not it's native set.. So, I guess, the in-built Tracktion plug ins may mirror that...? As Ed says above, I too don't use /run Tracktion so no expert on that specifically..

Thanks modz1 for the welcome and the reply. The nocturn finally sprang to life after downloading automap 2.0 from Novation. And you're right guys that the nocturn only works with 3rd party plug-ins. In my case only the likes of Kontakt, Amplitube and Absynth got wrapped-up, not Tracktion's native plug-ins. I was hoping for nocturn to be able to do the latter. Wouldn't it be nice if nocturn can work with native plug-ins in future updates. Once again, many thanks for all your help.
