Panorama P6'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 dynamic range is much wider than what you experience on most controllers allowing better control of both low and high velocity values. 5 velocity curves give you choices. Monophonic aftertouch, pitch bend and modulation wheels, plus foot switch and expression pedal jacks gives this Nektar keyboard controller great performance.
The Display Says It All
A crystal clear 3.5 inch color TFT display on the Panorama P6 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 P6 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 P6 comprehensive and fully featured. 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 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.
Midi Control – A Game of Many Options
Setting up presets or F-keys maps is easy on the Nektar Panorama P6. 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
The 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.
Controlling Cubase, Nuendo or Reason Has Never Felt So Real
For Cubase, Nuendo and Reason users, Panorama P6 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.
Three modes 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 control. The integration with Cubase, Nuendo and Reason is so deep that you can immerse yourself in your music without having to constantly reach for the mouse. The Nektar Panorama P6 gives you the creative freedom to just focus on your music.
Your Rewire Slave and Host Controlled In Absolute Real-Time
Reason ReWired to Cubase or Nuendo is a whole new experience with Panorama P6. 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.
Transport When You Need It, Function Buttons When You Don't
It's hard to go places without transport so Panorama P6 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.
