Using the Nektar Panorama P4 keyboard controller with Propellerheads’ Reason 6 software is so fluid and intuitive that you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. You get 49 semi-weighted keys, 93 realtime controls, and a 100mm ALPS motorized fader for writing automation and other mixing tasks. There’s even a 3.5″ color display that shows what you’re controlling in Reason — you can focus on the Panorama P4 instead of your computer screen, giving you the feel of working with hardware instead of software.
While there are plenty of keyboard controllers available these days, the purpose-built integration with Reason software makes using the Nektar Panorama P4 a very rewarding experience. You have access to every channel strip in Reason’s mixer, including dynamics, EQ, inserts, sends, and more. A complete set of transport controls makes it easy to navigate your projects. A set of 12 velocity-sensitive pads are ready to trigger drums, loops, samples, and more. And even though it gives you complete control over Reason right out of the box, the USB and MIDI connections make it an ideal controller for the rest of your software and hardware too.
One of the coolest features of the Nektar Panorama P4 is the ability to assign keyboard shortcuts to the buttons on the controller. Just like any computer program, Reason makes good use of key commands — such as command-s to save your project, or using the tab key to flip Reason’s rack around. You can assign any QWERTY keyboard command to the multi-function keys on the Panorama P4, giving you one more reason to stay focused on your music and not your computer. With comprehensive control, out-of-the-box integration, and a powerfully intuitive workflow, it’s hard not to be creative when you’re working with the Nektar Panorama P4 keyboard controller and Reason music production software.
