Nektar have announced their newest controller for Reason and Cubase - the Panorama P1:
"Like Nektar's Panorama P4 and P6 USB controller keyboards, the Panorama P1 features generic MIDI controller capabilities that allow operating any DAW.
Used with Cubase or Reason, Panorama P1 automatically reconfigures depending on whether Mixer, Instrument or Transport mode is selected. Mixer mode provides complete control over the mixer, including EQ, dynamics and sends as well as insert VST plugins in Cubase. Instrument mode provides access to all controllable parameters in VSTi's or Reason Devices. Transport mode delivers a large font readout of song position pointers, left and right locators, tempo as well as critical settings in transport mode allowing thorough song or project navigation control from Panorama.
The Panorama P1 features the Nektar QWERTY macro support. Up to 8 keystroke commands can be sent to a DAW at a push of just one button giving you access to DAW functions and menus not normally available via MIDI. QWERTY macros can be assigned to any assignable button including the 11 F-keys which in turn can be stored as one F-key map to any of the 10 F-key map locations. In addition, Panorama P1 also has 20 preset locations for use in Internal mode with each preset storing the P1 controller assignments for generic DAW or MIDI hardware control.
The Panorama P1 features nine 45mm faders, 16 endless encoders, 8 LED buttons, 11 transport buttons, 22 Navigation buttons, 11 F-keys buttons, 1 assignable footswitch socket and a color high resolution TFT display.
The Nektar Panorama P1 will be available in April 2013 with an RRP of USD 299.99/ Euro 259.99/ GBP219.99 in stores worldwide. More info soon on www.nektartech.com."
