To control Omnisphere using the Mininova, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Download and install the latest Novation driver for the Mininova.

  • Connect the Mininova’s USB port to your computer via USB.

  • Activate the Novation Mininova Hardware Profile in Omnisphere 2.6 or higher.


Download the current software for the MiniNova from Novation’s downloads page here.

NOTE – When installing the MiniNova driver software it will check the MiniNova’s firmware (if it’s connected via USB) and if the MiniNova’s firmware is out-of-date, will provide the option to update it.


Open your host (DAW, Standalone, etc.) and make sure the Mininova is enabled as a MIDI input device.

Omnisphere Standalone Pro Tools


Open Omnisphere and from the header, select the HW menu button:

From the drop-down menu, select “Novation>Novation Mininova” to activate that hardware profile.

Unassigned Controls

Omnisphere will not respond to the following MiniNova controls:

  • Main Volume


Not working? Here are some things to try: 

  • Is your DAW receiving MIDI from the MiniNova?
  • If you are using the Omnisphere standalone host, make sure the MIDI output channel of the MiniNova matches the MIDI channel of the Omnisphere Part you want to control.
  • Make sure your DAW is configured to correctly route the MIDI output of the MiniNova to the MIDI channel assigned to the desired part in Omnisphere.
