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 our 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.
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.
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.
Nektarine and MCU DAW control create a powerful system. Our 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.
