Nektar Panorama P4 Details
Panorama P4 is a incredible
49-key keyboard controller with the most intuitive workflow you have ever seen. Spectacular, deep implementations and support, along with vast MIDI programming options means you can focus on your music instead of the equipment. Set up your generic MIDI presets for instant recall when you need them or use Panorama P1 with: Apple Main Stage 3, Cocos Reaper, Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic Pro, Reason.
KEYBOARD BALANCED TO PERFECTION
keyboard action uses weights to offset the otherwise increasing tension
you would experience from the spring. This means the down movement is
as clean as possible and not heavy or fatiguing to play. We keep the
down weight required within the heavy end of common standards for
acoustic pianos. In addition, the dynamic range is much wider than what
you experience on most controller keyboards allowing better control of
both low and high velocity values. 5 velocity curves gives you choice
just in case your playing style requires a different feel. Monophonic
aftertouch, pitch bend and modulation wheels, plus foot switch and
expression pedal jacks sets you up for performance.
THE DISPLAY SAYS IT ALL
crystal clear 3.5" color TFT display delivers the information you
really need, for each mode or menu. Regardless of whether you are
operating Reason or programming MIDI assignments in Internal mode, the
display provides detailed information that makes your workflow fluent
and fast. Panorama takes the hard work out of using a controller and
makes operations that seem complicated and non-transparent on other
products, straight-forward and simple.
MORE CONTROLS THAN EVER BEFORE
unrivalled amount of assignable controls makes Panorama the most
comprehensive and fully featured MIDI controller keyboard around. 16
encoders, 9 45mm faders, 1 100mm motorized ALPS fader, 10 LED buttons,
28 buttons, 12 pads each with strike and pressure component, foot switch
jack, expression pedal jack, keyboard after touch, pitch bend and
modulation wheels gives you immediate control of up to 93 parameters at
any one time. You can store settings in 20 presets with individually
save and loadable keyboard, pad and F-keys maps. We could argue that it
gives you access to over 1500 assigned controls, but that would be
spinning it too far.
MIDI CONTROL - A GAME OF MANY OPTIONS!
up presets or F-keys maps is easy on Panorama. The Control Edit menu
enables you to quickly select a control and in real-time assign the MIDI
command you want. For each control values can be scaled, reverse and
assigned specific or global MIDI channels.
PRO-CONSOLE CONTROL WITHIN REACH
motorized 100mm touch-sensitive ALPS fader gives you pro-console mixer
channel control when operated with Cubase, Nuendo or Reason. Watch the
fader move when you change tracks and just move it to change volume. Two
LED buttons controls Solo and Mute so no matter what mode you operating
Panorama in, you always have pro-console control within reach.
TRANSPORT WHEN YOU NEED IT, FUNCTION BUTTONS WHEN YOU DON'T
hard to go places without transport so Panorama features an extended 11
button transport bar, positions right where you need it controlling:
Return to L, Forward to R, Undo, Click on/off, Record Mode, Cycle
on/off, Back, Forward, Stop, Play and Record. Using the shift button,
these also double up as 11 function buttons each assignable to MIDI
commands or QWERTY macro's.
SHORTCUT TO SOFTWARE FUNCTIONS
QWERTY macro's...... big deal, right? That's right, its a VERY big
deal. Your software has a ton of features and functions that can be
activated using QWERTY shortcut commands. Assigning a command to a
button so you don't have to be near your computer makes life a lot
easier. Assigning a string of up to 8 commands takes it to another
level. With this powerful feature you could for example enter edit mode,
zoom in and select a tool with just one button press.
an instrument or effects track and locate a folder containing your
presets so you can select them from Panorama, all with one button press
and without looking at your computer.
CONTROLLING CUBASE, NUENDO, LOGIC PRO OR REASON HAS NEVER FELT SO REAL
Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic Pro and Reason users, Panorama is a
dream come true. The dedicated communication protocol ties Panorama and
your DAW tightly together so all you have to do is select the mode and
menu you want to control. Panorama does the rest.
(initially 1 in Logic Pro) allows you one button press to switch between
controlling the Mixer, Instruments (VSTi or Devices) and Transport,
with the 4th mode, Internal, still providing access to traditional MIDI
The integration with Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Nuendo,
Logic Pro and Reason is so deep that you can immerse yourself in your
music without having to constantly reach for the mouse. Panorama gives
you the creative freedom to just focus on your music.
Panorama Logic integration includes control over Logic native plugins, 3rd party AU plugins and of course comprehensive Logic DAW control. Three dedicated buttons give you access to Mixer, Instrument and Transport modes, each uniquely updating Panorama’s assignments and parameter display for a complete, transparent workflow. With Panorama, there is no guessing. Just focus on your music and the rest is Logic.
YOUR REWIRE SLAVE AND HOST CONTROLLED IN ABSOLUTE REAL-TIME
ReWired to Cubase or Nuendo is a whole new experience with Panorama.
Select which DAW you want to control straight from Panorama, in absolute
real-time and regardless of what's in focus on your computer. Color
coding clearly tells you which environment you are controlling so you
don't get confused as you switch back and forth. And better still, there
really is not functionality lost when you change from controlling one
DAW to the other. You of course could buy 2 Panorama products to achieve
the same result but with Panorama you don't have to. The choice is
PADS WITH PRESSURE
Playing drums or percussive
parts on a keyboard can be a challenge, but luckily on Panorama you
don't have to. 12 velocity and pressure-sensitive pads with choice of 7
velocity curves will inspire you to play in ways you would never do on
the keyboard. The pads are unbelievably easy to program using the â??Learn
Noteâ?ť function. Press a pad, press a key...it's that easy.
â??Velocity Spreadâ?ť feature quickly spreads one note across all 12 pads,
each with its own fixed velocity, making it easier to create consistent
and nuanced dynamics.
The â??Scale-Functionâ?ť assigns each pad to
pitches within any of the pre-defined 30+ scales. It's a quick and easy
way to completely change pad assignments while freely changing intervals
or transposing the whole set on the fly. Great for percussive
performances with any keyboard sound as well as percussion.
devices such as ReDrum, Dr. Octo Rex and Kong are of course
automatically assigned to pads in Panorama P4's Instrument mode with an
additional 4 virtual pads available, when needed.
