Nektar intros Reaper support for Panorama controller

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 23, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Nektar Technology has announced it has updated its award winning Panorama Controller series announcing deep integration with Reaper, the popular DAW developed by Cockos.

Nektar Panorama gets Reaper support

With Panorama, Reaper users now benefit from transparent mixer control, transport and navigation plus for instruments and effects, Nektar’s acclaimed plugin map technology originally introduced for Cubase and Nuendo.

Panorama’s plugin map technology works transparently through Reaper, free from plugin wrappers or 3rd party software. A press of the instrument button on Panorama maps any inserted VSTi, AU or DX instrument’s plugin parameters to Panorama controls. Parameter names and values are presented on Panorama’s high-res color display so you always know where you are and what you are controlling. Nektar mapped instruments can be navigated using a transparent menu system. Select Filter, control the filter, select LFO, control the LFO…it’s that simple.

Map files can be customized or created by the user using a unique learn function. And if multiple instruments are present on the same track, a simple selection menu allows complete navigation between the layered instruments.

When it’s time to mix, Panorama’s Mixer mode transforms the instrument to a complete mixing console. Control up to 8 channels in a bank using the first 8 45mm faders and press bank over to control any additional channels. Options to control mute, solo, pan and sends are included for all 8 channels. Panorama’s motorized fader (P4 and P6 only) follows track selection for instant access to volume control at any time, in any mode.

Channel strip control includes

  • EQ, with the ability to create an EQ when none is present,
  • Inserts with navigation of 16 insert slots and Nektar plugin mapping
  • FX Sends control up to 16 sends levels
  • Channel for channel activity, read and write automation

Transport allows hands-on control and navigation of the entire DAW including setting loop points and changing tempo. There are also dedicated ‘global’ controls for patch browsing, Track navigation and the usual transport controls. All this makes perfect for a truly mouse-free experience.

Reaper integration is free for all owners of Nektar Panorama advanced workflow keyboards and is available to download from Nektar’s website now.

Cockos releases Reaper 4 digital audio workstation software

Cockos Reaper 4

Cockos has released Reaper 4, a complete multitrack audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing, and mastering environment for Windows and Mac.

REAPER updates are evolutionary, not revolutionary. REAPER 4 is not a radically new experience from REAPER 3, but adds a number of useful new features, ease of use improvements, and even more of that legendary REAPER customizability.

Changes in Reaper 4

  • Tweak, correct, and mangle audio with pitch envelopes, which can be applied to individual media items.
  • Create fully automated surround mixes with multichannel track metering and the highly flexible ReaSurround plug-in. Apply rotations, transformations, and diffusions, and even automate the positions of the speakers themselves.
  • Batch rendering wildcards provide sound designers with unprecedented flexibility when generating sound files in bulk.
  • Manage project media and FX with the Project Bay, where you can collect, organize, and edit a list of resources that you are using, or might use, for different types of projects.
  • More Customizable – Arrange REAPER’s windows and toolbars in multiple dockers, redefine your mouse behavior with mouse modifiers, and use the new WALTER layout template engine to create flexible custom layouts for track/transport/mixer GUI elements.
  • Take comping is more predictable, with takes remaining aligned by recording pass, even after splitting and deleting errors.
  • Previewing and inserting media is easier, because you can highlight, loop, and insert subsections of media files.
  • Switch between different MIDI clips more easily in the MIDI editor. Pool MIDI items so that editing one item edits all pooled copies. Define scales and chords for quickly painting runs and arpeggios.
  • Check the changelog for full details: What’s new

Reaper 4 is available to purchase for $225 USD (full commercial license) / $60 USD (discounted license).
