8Pads

At A Glance • 49 note 2nd Gen synth-action keyboard with aftertouch
• 8 super-sensitive pads with pressure
• Chord: Trigger up to 6 notes from one key or pad
• Hold: Holds played notes until deactivated – great with legato
• Real-time control of trigger rate, accent, swing and gate

2nd Gen Panorama Keybed

Nektar Panorama T4

synth-action keybedThese controllers feature a 2nd generation Panorama synth-action keybed. Dampened and carefully balanced across the keyboard with medium tension, which means the activation force required is in the middle of the range established for professional keyboards.

Five velocity curves shift the emphasis from soft to hard, offering enough choice to suit any playing style. A fixed option allows velocity values to be set by controls, including the wheels.

The 2nd Gen Panorama keybed is the most expressive keybed yet and features the AfterTouch strip: Easily triggered and controlled, AfterTouch makes it possible to dynamically alter tone or volume by gently applying just a bit of pressure.

Optimum Performance

Nektar Panorama T4

Beats On TapDesigned with finger drumming in mind, Panorama T4/T6’s 8 large velocity and pressure sensitive pads are the perfect tool for beat creation. Triggering at an extremely low threshold, they will capture ghost notes and flams as easily as you can play them. If the factory settings are not expressive enough for you, you can also calibrate each pad individually for optimum performance.

Each pad can be assigned any MIDI note number or MIDI cc message for use as MIDI trigger or toggle buttons, assigning sounds also couldn’t be easier: Activate Pad Learn, select a pad, play the required note or drum sound on the keyboard and assignment is done. A Pad Bank Button left to the pads gives you access to another 8 pads, for a total of 16 pads within a pad map. 8 such pad maps are available for recall at any time.

With DAW Integration, you also get automatic mapping of dedicated drums synths such as Reason’s Kong and Bitwig’s Drum Machine for a tightly integrated drum machine feeling, complete with full visual feedback on the pads. You can even assign chords to the pads and combine this with the Pad Repeat feature to generate fun rhythmical and chordal figures.

The display’s “Velocity Spread” softkey quickly spreads the last played note across all 16 pads, each with its own fixed velocity, making it easier to create consistent and nuanced dynamics. And “VelFix” gives you access to a pre-assigned fixed velocity level.

KEY AND PAD REPEATFound just above the wheels are the Key Repeat and Pad Repeat buttons. Press to activate the repeat function and notes will be repeated at the set rate. Change the rate in real-time from 1/4 – 1/96 note values, change the tempo, add some swing and set an accent interval.

Repeat settings for pads and keys are independent of each other, so one can be set for the drum beat and the other for an instrumentation part. The Repeat’s trigger mode can be set to repeat from the point of playing a note or to sync with the beat. Clock source can either be internal or external MIDI clock.

Repeat is a fun way to look for ideas and accommodate “happy accidents”, regardless of whether you are adding flams to drum beats or creating big repetitive chord progressions.

ACCESS ALL AREASNine 30mm faders, 8 assignable LED buttons and 8 encoders are found at the center of the T-series’ control panel. Each control is fully programmable to send any MIDI CC message for use with hardware or software MIDI products.

When used with Nektar DAW integration or Nektarine, the controls provide flexible pre-mapped DAW- or plugin-control, giving you deep tactile control directly from the hardware. The DAW integration files also contain automatic catch-up and soft-takeover functions to avoid parameter jumping when you switch between devices.

The “Null” function additionally allows you to do this without relying on software feedback with independent settings for each of Mixer, Instrument, Multi and Preset modes. Control settings can be stored in any of Panorama’s 10 presets for recall at any time. From 27 minutes to 30 minutes.

INSTANT FEEDBACKThe custom LCD display shows crisp and clear feedback for all your settings: Here is where you select Panorama’s different modes, access global parameters and navigate your software. With DAW Integration and Nektarine, you will even see your software’s mixer and plugin parameters right there.

The 4 soft buttons below the display will change their function according to the selected menu for fast access. The 4 mode buttons to the right of the display allow you to change from internal mode to DAW or plugin control at the touch of a button. The Multi button is reserved for Nektarine.

By pressing the FOCUS button, you can enlarge the current parameter to fill the whole screen. All of this ensures a fluent and fast workflow without any guessing games.

Multi Means More

Nektar Panorama T4

layer up to 8 instrument pluginsPanorama T4/T6’s Multi mode allows up to 8 instrument plugins to be layered in Nektarine. Each plugin slot has its own unique browser settings including volume, pan, mute and solo parameters assigned for instant mix from Panorama. When Multi mode is active, patches loaded for each slot are clearly listed in the display and slots can be added in real-time. Press the Browse button at any time to load a new patch in any of the active slots. Multi certainly means more!

Nektar Panorama T4

WHERE IS NEKTARINE?Launch Nektarine and it will immediately communicate with your Panorama T4/T6. Then you'll be ready to take deep control of VST, VST3 or AU plugins from Panorama: Load an instrument plugin that’s supported by Nektarine’s default plugin maps and create new and exciting sounds that you didn’t even know your plugin was capable of. Turning knobs is much more fun than using a mouse. The display will tell you which parameter is assigned to each control as well as status feedback.

The LED buttons below the faders are set up for navigation so it’s quick and easy to find your way around even complex plugins. Each button is labeled with a common control page name such as OSC, Filter, Env, LFO and FX. As soon as you press a button, the corresponding Nektarine factory map page is selected. The LED buttons can be “learned” to any map page so you can set up each map exactly how you want it.

Nektar Panorama T4

CONTROL MAPSSelect the “Edit” button in the Nektarine header to open the control edit page. This is where control map pages are created. You can also rename parameters and create navigation assignments so it’s easy to select the plugin’s pages. Drag and drop parameters to assign them to controls on each page or use Panorama’s parameter learn function.

Factory maps are also customizable and any map can be saved for automatic recall every time the plugin is loaded. Nektarine and Panorama T4/T6 deliver an unrivaled control experience with deep integration typically not even available on dedicated hardware synthesizer products. With this level of control you’ll see your instruments in a new light.

BROWSE MEANS LESSNektarine’s browser allows browsing of patches directly from Panorama T4/T6. Factory patches for most of the popular instrument plugins are instantly available with minimum setup.

Your own user patches can also be imported or saved, so over time there will be quite a few patches to choose from in the Nektarine browser. Thankfully, Nektarine has all the tools to help you manage thousands of patches – including patch tagging, search and rating options which make it easy to find exactly the patch you are looking for.

Group tags store a combination of tag settings and make it possible to narrow your options at the push of just one button. The best part is that the Nektarine browser enables complete migration between DAWs: Use Nektarine in one DAW and your plugins can be browsed the same way in any other compatible DAW.

Fix It In The Mix

Nektar Panorama T4

DAW CONTROLPanorama T4 and T6 are compatible with any DAW that supports Mackie® Control Universal (MCU). Including transport, track selection and basic mixer control. The 6 LED transport buttons put an end to using the mouse for this. Dedicated Track up/down buttons are located below the display. You can do even more if your DAW is supported by Nektar DAW Integration.

Control basic mixer functionality right away: The first 8 faders control your DAW’s mixer in banks of 8 channels each, their LED buttons activate mute. And this works in any DAW, that supports MCU. Hold shift and move through your mixer in banks of 8, using the Bank buttons below the Display. The 9th fader controls master volume, the encoders are mapped to channel pan.

With Nektar DAW Integration, you get additional features such as alternating channel 9 between volume control for master and current channel – or toggling the LED buttons between solo and mute. Depending on your DAW, you can also use the display buttons to switch the encoders to control sends or smart/quick controls in Logic or Cubase for example. To help you make the best out of your screen estate, Panorama also has shortcuts for opening and closing your DAW mixer window.

Nektar DAW Integration

Nektar DAW Integration

THE COMPLETE SYSTEMNektarine and MCU DAW control creates a powerful system. The Nektar DAW Integration software takes the system integration even further: This custom software is especially created for each of the supported DAWs and will provide you with a common workflow that gives access to expanded transport and mixer functions as well as control of your DAW’s own instruments. It’s the most complete DAW control system available, even compared with products in higher price brackets. Panorama T-series’ DAW integration currently supports Bitwig, Cubase, Garageband, Logic, Nuendo, Reaper, Reason and Studio One.

MIDI & User Presets

Nektar Panorama T4

control MIDI hardware productsIf you prefer to control MIDI hardware products, Panorama T4/T6 can do that as well. The Control Edit menu makes it easy to program any of the controls to send MIDI messages from standard MIDI cc, RPN and NRPN, MMC and of course note messages. Buttons and pads can even be set up to load specific Panorama T4/T6 presets or pad maps as well as trigger chords.

There are 10 presets to store control setups and a further 8 pad maps storing 2×8 pad assignments each. Once controls are programmed as they should be, connect your MIDI equipment to the MIDI output jack and get started. You can use the repeat buttons to expand your performance options along with the chord and hold functions.

As a low powered USB device, Panorama T4 and T6 work with all USB devices that feature a Class compliant MIDI driver. This includes all version of Windows from XP and higher, Apple OS X 10.5 and higher plus Linux (as long as a USB MIDI driver package is installed). Apple iOS is supported using Apple’s powered USB camera connection kit.
