Take control of your digital audio workstation with the amazing Nektar Panorama P4 controller keyboard. With vast programming options and deep implementation for your favourite software, the P4 firmly puts the spotlight on performance and creativity. Ideal for all software but with a special deeper layer for Propellerheads Reason, the P4 offers 93 real-time controls for complete expression.
The keyboard of the Panorama P4 uses weights to offset the otherwise increasing tension that you would experience from the spring. This means the down-movement feels 'cleaner' and offers a more natural playing experience. There's a choice of 5 different velocity curves as well as monophonic aftertouch, pitch bend and modulation along with connections for expression pedals.
The crystal clear 3.5" colour TFT display of the P4 delivers the information you really need, for each mode or menu. Regardless of whether you are operating Reason or programming MIDI assignments in Internal mode, the display provides detailed information that makes your workflow fluent and fast. Panorama takes the hard work out of using a controller and makes operation simple.
An unrivalled amount of assignable controls makes the Panorama P4 one of the most comprehensive and fully featured MIDI controller keyboard around. 16 encoders, 9 45mm faders, 1 100mm motorized ALPS fader, 10 LED buttons, 28 buttons, 12 pads each with strike and pressure component, foot switch jack, expression pedal jack, keyboard after touch, pitch bend and modulation wheels gives you immediate control of up to 93 parameters at any one time.
