Digital Performer Setup and Troubleshooting: Panorama T Series

Panorama T4/T6 Support

There are no files to be installed, in order to use the Panorama T-series with Digital Performer. The T-series controller will emulate a MCU controller, for Mixer and Transport functions.


Please make sure that you have updated your controller’s firmware and then follow these steps:

  1. Plug-in your Panorama T-series controller and make sure it’s switched on (if you didn’t do so already).
  2. Launch Digital Performer and create a Project, or open an existing one.
  3. Go to the ‘Setup’ menu.
  4. Select ‘Control Surface Setup…’.
  5. Click the ‘+’ button in the upper right corner. (Image 1)
  6. For ‘Driver’ select ‘Mackie Control’.
  7. For ‘MIDI Input’, select ‘MIDIIN2 (PanoramaT*)-1’ in Windows or ‘PanoramaT* Mixer-1’ in OS X.
  8. For ‘MIDI Output’, select ‘ MIDIOUT2 (PanoramaT*)’ in Windows or ‘ PanoramaT* Mixer’ in OS X. (Images 2 and 3)
  9. Click ‘OK’ to close the Control Surface Setup window.
  10. Press both [Octave] buttons on the T-series for the Global menu. (Image 4)
  11. Turn the encoder labeled ‘DAWCTL’ to select ‘MCU’. (Image 5)
  12. Press the [Mixer] button.
  13. Press the [Play] button on the T-series controller.
  14. Playback should now start in Digital Performer.
