I think you're confused. Novation's handling of native Ableton devices is identical to APC40 or any other midi controller with assignable 8 encoders. Novation Ableton template works well with all of Live's native devices. You have 8 encoders that map instantly to the first 8 controls of a Live device or macros in a rack. For the Nocturn, it's just a matter of using remote midi instant mapping like any other midi controller. Other than this, there is no "proper" solution for native Ableton devices with any existing controller, not even APC40.
There's a limitation with Live in that you can't save assignments in a preset for native Live plugins, unless you put them in a rack.
Also, Launchpad does not use Novation Automap. It uses Ableton's own version of instant mapping, as does the APC40 and Novation's Ableton template. These are not the same as Automap Universal.
