Dedicated controller keyboard for Propellerhead Reason is up for grabs 20/12/11
There have been already a lot of rumours about it, now it is official: Nektar, the California-based new brand for Advanced Control Enhanced Workflow Controllers has announced Panorama P4, the first dedicated Controller Keyboard for Propellerhead Reason (see yesterday's Sonic State news story). To mark the launch there's an accompanying competition. Musicians can win the very first Panorama P4 rolling off the production line, by submitting their competition entry at the Nektar website.
The rules are simple: Answer the the questions and include your real name and email address. The competition will run until NAMM and if more than one submission gets all answers right, Nektar will pick the winner through a random draw. As there is one question even Nektar do not know the answer to yet, everybody is invited to make a good guess. What Nektar has to say about Panorama P4
Panorama P4 is Nektar's vision of how a great controller keyboard should work. As there are many controllers on the market already, it is still a challenge to find one that offers the feel and flow of operating the software, as if it's hardware. Panorama P4 uses a communication protocol that has been custom designed for Reason 6, putting control - every control - at the musician's fingertips. Panorama, in addition, of course also features traditional MIDI controller capabilities, including a MIDI output, so its possible to switch between the virtual and a hardware instrument rack in real-time. Panorama P4 really provides access to all areas. Pricing and Availability:
Panorama is expected to be available in Q1 2012. Price TBA
