Welcome

THE DEVICE


nOb is a very precise and versatile knob controller. It was designed with the creator in mind, who wants to adjust any type of parameter during demanding media production.


By taking control of your mouse cursor, nOb is able to control any parameter you would normally adjust with your mouse, delivering out-of-the-box compatibility with any operating system and software package. You simply have to point your mouse cursor to the parameter you want to control and use nOb's big knob to fine-tune it to taste. Any draggable interface element found in modern media production software can be controlled, including sliders, scrollbars, knobs or even draggable value indicators.



STATIONARY MODE

This mode is used for elements that stay in the same position when controlled, like e.g. knobs or pitch wheels.

DRAG MODE

This mode is used for draggable elements, like e.g. sliders, scrollbars or faders.

VERTICAL ADJUST

This mode is used for elements that can be adjusted when dragged vertically.

HORIZONTAL ADJUST

This mode is used for elements that can be adjusted along the horizontal axis.




No matter if you are a mastering engineer, colorist, music producer, sound designer, mixing engineer, video editor or 3D artist, there is certainly a place for nOb in your workflow to revolutionize the way you make adjustments!



Now with the new nOb Assignment center, a.k.a. nAc, a new world of possibilities opens up.
