My Nocturn has just landed on my desk at work. Will have to wait til tonight when I get home to test it out with Renoise.
From other posts on the forum I believe I may be the first person to actually get my hands on one and test it with Renoise. As such I’ll let you know how I get on, if that would be of any interest?
Also, if you have anything you’d like me to try with the Renoise/Nocturn combo, or have any questions, then I’d be happy to try it out and tell you if what you want to do works. I warn you now though that I’m not overly technically minded, and may need your help setting things up if the request is esoteric!
As I say, I hope this may help or be of interest to some people.
What I can say is that I’ve taken it out of the box and had a good look at it. It’s made of toughned plastic and seems quite soild. The crossfader has a nice action, the buttons are rubber and OK, but the knobs don’t give a great first impression. I’m sure they are fine - and on a £70 piece of gear I’m not complaining - but they have a little bit of ‘wobble’ in them, if that makes sense.
The unit is very light and compact, yet there is a good amount of space between the knobs. I think the ‘staggered’ layout of the rotaries helps here. The unit has a low profile, and will clearly sit nicely in front of a laptop.
Like I say, hope this thread will help some people.
