Nektar Panorama P4
Keyboard Balanced to Perfection
Panorama P4's 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. The Panorama P4 keeps 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
A crystal clear 3.5 inch colour TFT display delivers the information you really need, for each mode or menu. Regardless of whether you are operating Reason, Cubase, Logic, Bitwig Studio 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
An unrivalled amount of assignable controls makes Panorama the most comprehensive and fully featured MIDI controller keyboard around. 16 encoders, 9 45mm faders, 1 100mm motorised 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 even store settings in 20 presets with individually save and loadable keyboard, pad and F-keys maps.
Controlling Your DAW Has Never Felt So Real
For Reason, Cubase, Logic and Bitwig Studio users, Panorama is a dream come true. The dedicated communication protocol ties Panorama and the aforementioned DAWs tightly together so all you have to do is select the mode and menu you want to control. Panorama does the rest. 3 modes allows you to switch between controlling the Mixer, Device (instrument or effects) and Transport, with the 4th mode, Internal, free to control your ReWired DAW. Switching between modes just requires one button press.
Transport When You Need It, Function Buttons When You Don't
It's hard to go places without transport so Panorama features an extended 11 button transport bar, positioned right where you need it. The transport bar has buttons for: 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
So 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. Or create 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.
Pro-Console Control Within Reach
The motorised 100mm touch-sensitive ALPS fader gives you pro-console mixer channel control when operated with Reason, Cubase, Logic or Bitwig Studio. 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 are operating Panorama in, you always have pro-console control within reach.
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 a 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 and using the 'Learn Note' function you can press a pad, press a key and that pad is automatically assigned to the same note as the key that you pressed! It's that easy!
The 'Velocity Spread' 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 'Scale-Function' 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.
Reason 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.
