Nektar announces a substantial upgrade to their Panorama P1, P4 and P6 keyboard controllers with deeper integration for Logic Pro X. This upgrade makes Panorama the most comprehensive Logic controller on the market with integration over the entire DAW including mixer, insert plugins, instruments and project navigation. This is a free update for existing users and is available now!
The addition of Instrument and Transport modes now means unparalleled hands-on control and flexibility. Instrument mode enables the entire Panorama control surface to be focused on controlling instrument plugins. Logic’s built-in instruments are all pre-mapped for immediate control including ES1 & ES2 synths, Vintage Electric Piano, Vintage B3 Organ, EXS24 sampler.

The mapping follows the long-standing Panorama principle of grouping parameters in labeled pages so it is a breeze to select a section from the popup menu and start controlling the assigned parameters immediately. Panorama “sees” every automatable parameter directly from Logic via Logic’s control API which is why Panorama can transparently map Logic plugins, while other products can’t.

Plugin control of course also includes AU plugins. AU instruments can be mapped across 37 real-time controls and with an additional 24 encoder pages each mapping 12 parameters. That means up to 325 instrument parameters are within reach, at any time.

The included plugin mapping editor makes editing the control assignments easy. Using a simple point and click approach, the job is done in seconds. Map files then can be shared across the user community via a linked cloud environment.
