Nektar Technology PANORAMA P1 overview

  • 1Description

The Panorama P1 from Nektar Technology is a MIDI controller housed in a desktop enclosure that provides deep Reason, Cubase and Nuendo integration, along with comprehensive MIDI programming options. Multiple encoders, faders, buttons and a foot switch jack provide immediate control of up to sixty-one parameters at any one time. Settings can be stored in twenty presets, with individually save and loadable function-key maps that yield more than 1,200 combinations. However, the controller will happily function with virtually any other DAW.

A 3.5" color TFT display delivers the information needed for each mode or menu, while providing detailed information that makes workflow fluent and fast. Setting up presets or function-key maps is easy. The Control Edit menu allows for selecting a control, and in real-time, assigning the MIDI command required. For each control, values can be scaled, reverse and assigned specific or global MIDI channels. Additionally, the controller features an extended eleven-button transport bar. Using the shift button, these also double as function buttons each assignable to MIDI commands or QWERTY macros.

QWERTY macros allow for assigning a string of up to eight commands to speed up workflow. For example, enter edit mode, zoom in and selecting a tool with just a single button press. Or create an instrument or effects track and locate a folder containing all the presets and select them from the controller, all with one button press and without looking at the computer.

For Cubase, Nuendo, and Reason users, the dedicated communication protocol ties the unit and the software tightly together. It is only necessary to select the mode and menu required, and the controller does the rest. Three modes provide a single button press to switch between controlling the mixer, instruments and transport, with the 4th mode, internal, still providing access to traditional MIDI control. Color coding clearly informs which environment is being controlled to alleviate any confusion when switching back and forth.

    Nektar Technology PANORAMA P1 reviews

    Panorama P1 - MIDI Controller is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!!! I was looking for a replacement for my Behringer BCF2000, of worked well with Reason. I'm a big time Reason user I just upgraded to 8 and my power supply went on the Behringer. I was skeptical because this unit didn't have motorized faders I wasn't sure how it was going to work but NEKTAR came up with a genius way around that. You also get to make the slightest adjustments when panning and using sends. It's everything you want in a DAW controller and the display is beautiful. I recomend this product to anyone using Reason!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nektar P1 is really one of the best controllers out their. The Nektar P1 control surface is a great usb powered controller with lots of features. Out of the box It works well with Win 10 and has presets for Fl Studio Reason Reaper and Cubase sadly not Sonar. I ordered the unit from B&H Photo as they had the lowest price that included shipping. B&H delivered on time as promised with no issues. The P1 is a great unit that allows me great flexability in controlling Reason and Fl Studio. It has deep control presets that let the user set volume pan tracks programs and much more not to mention transport functions with DAW feedback. I can see this being my goto controller for my DAWs. Regarding Sonar I'm able to set the P1 up to control Sonar but with no feed back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic this thing does what it says it does and more, Im not big on reviews but I have seen a few people trying to use this with logic and giving it hate, you simply have to read the directions it comes with, I am using logic pro X, after a 5 min firmware/software update, it worked with logic first try, even when i open an instrument/plug in it switches the controls to it automatically with out my inputting anything, even has the name on the screen, very impressed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Bitwig Bitwig is a joy to use with this, REALLY speeds up recording and tweaking, with VST integration left and right, every plugin I throw at it seems to already be mapped, terrific!
