2nd Generation Panorama Keybed

Panorama T4 and T6 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, giving enough choice to cater for any playing style. A fixed option enables velocity values to be set by controls, including the wheels. The 2nd Gen Panorama keybed is Nektar's 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.

Pads: Beats on Tap

Designed 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, it's even possible to 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 and assigning sounds 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 additionally 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.

DAW Control

Panorama T4 and T6 are compatible with any DAW that supports Mackie Control Universal (MCU). This includes 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. If your DAW is supported by Nektar DAW Integration, you can do even more.

Control: Access All Areas

Nine 30mm faders, 8 assignable LED buttons and 8 encoders are 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 right 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.
