Panorama P4 Keyboard Controller description:

The Nektar Panorama P4 49-Note Keyboard Controller has been custom designed for the user to have full control over all the functions and features in Propellerhead Reason. The Panorama is different to other generic controllers. It's sole purpose is to cater for Reason producers and musicians who have been looking for a controller that does it all.

The Panorama P4 from Nektar Technology uses a unique protocol custom designed to work flawlessly with Propellerhead's Reason 6. Its clever design and clear layout help put control at the fingertips exactly in the same way as hardware would. With its 49-note keyboard, 12 velocity-sensitive pads, a vast array of knobs and faders, and a white on black crystal clear display, the Panorama P4 provides everything required for hands on control of Reason on stage or in the studio.

The Panorama P4 layout is divided between the Mixer Section and the Channel Strip control Panorama let's you operate Reason like no other controller. The mixer section of the Nektar Technology's Panorama offers 9 faders (8 channel faders and a master fader) mirrored in the display controlling Volume, pan, inserts, send and returns, mute and solos.

The Channel Strip control gives all the control necessary to each channel strip in a clear layout. The channel Strip is broken down into the different sections, namely EQ, Dynamics, Inserts and Sends. Each section is easily accessible at the touch of the relevant button. Once selected the 8 encoders map to the relevant controls of the selected channel strip in the mixer.In addition, the Panorama features a silent multi-function, touch-sensitive motorised fader that can be used with any instrument, sequencer or mixer channel, delivering precise control of Propellerheads flagship DAW.

Expertise/Experience: Producer and multi-instrumentalist.
Belfast GB

Pros: +
Keeps getting updated as more Rack Extensions appear.Screen is clear and simple to follow.Good feel from the keyboard.A great way to control Reason on the fly.

Cons: -
Setup is a little confusing, even for someone who has set-up many keyboards and controllers before.Could do with better documentation and a clearer drivers website.Using 2 USBs means that on many computers (MacBook Pro etc), both of your USBs are spent on one device.Menu can be a little fiddly.

London GB

Pros: +
Great integration with Reason, excellent control.Very expressive aftertouch.Good displayLots of options to assign controls and qwerty commands

Cons: -
The key bed is semi weighted so not quite ideal for piano and a little slower than I would like for synths. I think it will depend on what you are used to.I am not a big fan of the pads, but I haven't tried adjusting settings.

Review:
Excellent partner to Reason 9.
Also just got a serious firmwareupdate to support new Reason RackExtensions.

Nice build quality, and I just can't find the keybord at all noisy, like some ppl have reviewed it.

Review:
Excellent deep integration with Reason as it states. I started using Reason back in 2001 and have always been tied to using the mouse and keyboard to tweak/control the devices, mixer and sequencer. The P4 from Nektar changed all this! I can now do most of tasks required from the keyboard and the workflow and production process feels much smoother.

I would recommend this keyboard for existing Reason users.

Review:
A little hard to get used to... Not as simple as they make it out to be.. I've had to youtube a lot to get to grips and still having issues but all in all a decent controller for the price!!
