So what you're saying is I need both. Right?

Quick question about controlling VST Instruments: It says in the description on Nektar's site that it controls instruments on Instrument tracks.

What about MIDI tracks that have instruments assigned it them?

Is it possible to manually map the mixer, transport and instrument modes to DAWs other than Reason or Cubase?

From what I've read so far, I gathered that only internal mode would be available to other DAWs.

That's a good question. I can't answer at the moment. I'll let you know as soon as I do. :)

Thanks!!

I gotta say that even though it doesn't currently integrate with any daw I use, I like the concept because it's different enough and seems a lot smoother in practise than some of the competition.

Even if you are making assignments manually, the big display makes changing setting much easier than a lot of other controllers I've used. When you go to the Control Edit mode, all of the settings are visible on the same page and there is a graphic representation of the control you are editing. This eliminates any guess work. We have also eliminated the need for any display pages that time-out if you know what I mean. So, if you are editing a control, it won't leave the Control Edit mode just because you haven't done anything for 3 seconds.

Doing stuff like editing zones and mapping pads is also graphical. So, not only does Panorama make it possible to map things flexibly but it gives you lots of feedback so that you always know where you are and what things are mapped too.

For those who are into using the drum pads, we have a Note Learn feature that allows you to change the notes that pads transmit. If you have a bunch of drum sounds layed out across the keyboard, you can use the keyboard to audition the sounds and then the pad will aquire the note assignment of the last key you hit. It's much more intuitive than selecting a note number via a menu.

There are lots of little touches like this that we implemented to make setup easier.

@Justin,

Do you have some guidelines for mapping? I now have the P4 and i was gonna map Synthmaster and the Moog Minitaur plugin.. i could also do the Novation Ultra Nova depending on time in between sound design and production jobs :-)

We already have a Minitaur preset. Load up preset 12. :)
I would suggest holding off on mapping plug-ins because it's handle a bit differently once the control surface support is implemented. Of course, you can do mapping for your own purposes. As I said earlier, the control surface stuff is stored separately from the internal preset memory.

Ok mate i never checked that :oops: I'll just map for myself for now then but let me know if you need any official templates making in future.

PS

This thing (P4) is the business, well designed indeed. I like :)

I plan on purchasing next Friday, so if you could find an answer to this I'd really appreciate it. :)

Sorry, the way I phrased my answer was not exactly clear. I know the answer, but I can't talk about specifics at the moment. Cubase integration is still in development and some of this functionality is subject to change. Hope you understand. :)
