Nektar Technologies extends hardware support for DAWs, plug-ins, Rack Extensions

August 14, 2013
Nektar's quest to map every VST plug-in known to man continues! They have added another 54 insert and instrument maps to the collection, each carefully handmapped at Nektar HQ, so you don't have to. 

These maps not only give you tactile control but also in many cases improve the user experience over the software GUI. Take for example Xhun Audio's LittleOne where you now can select the effect you want right from Panorama's Instrument home page, plus you don't have to click on a parameter to adjust it. Or the Sound Tower editors that already give great control over Dave Smith synths. You can now control the parameters right from your Panorama keyboard or control surface including arpeggiation and sequencing!

Below is the complete list of new plug-in maps.

To install the new support files, log in to the Nektar website and download the Integrated Installer from My Downloads. The installer also includes a new version of Panorama firmware which features some minor bug fixes. You do not need to update the firmware to take advantage of the new RE support.    

Panorama's Internal mode can be used to set up MIDI presets to control any MIDI compatible device. An Internal mode Studio One template for Panorama has been available for quite some time but we realized recently that we could improve it to provide a workflow much more similar to how Reason and Cubase operate with Panorama. It's of course not the same deep integration, since there is no parameter feedback however we consider it a substantial improvement over the previous template and are delighted to share it with our Studio One users.
