Pro Tools 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 Pro Tools. The T Series controller will emulate a M-Audio keyboard, for Mixer and Transport functions.

Setup

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 Pro Tools and create a Project, or open an existing one.
  3. Go to the ‘Setup’ menu.
  4. Select ‘Peripherals…’.
  5. In the Window that appears, select the ‘MIDI Controllers’ tab.
  6. For ‘Type’ select ‘M-Audio Keyboard’.
  7. For ‘MIDI Input’, select ‘MIDIIN2 (PanoramaT*) [Emulated]’ in Windows (image 1) or ‘PanoramaT* Mixer’ in MacOS (image 2).
  8. For ‘MIDI Output’, select ‘ MIDIOUT2 (PanoramaT*) [Emulated]’ in Windows (image 1) or ‘ PanoramaT* Mixer’ in MacOS (image 2).
  9. Click ‘OK’ to close the Control Surface Setup window.
  10. Press both [Octave] buttons on the T-series for the Global menu (image 3).
  11. Turn the encoder labeled ‘DAWCTL’ to select ‘PTOOLS’ (image 4).
  12. Press the [Mixer] button.
  13. Press the [Play] button on the T-series controller.
  14. Playback should now start in Pro Tools.

Features

Mixer Mode
Once configured you will be able to control Mixer channels in banks of 8.

  • Faders 1-8 = Channel Volume for the selected bank.
  • Fader 9 = Master Volume.
  • Buttons 1-8 = Select, Record Arm, Mute or Solo.
  • Button 9 = Select function for buttons 1-8.
  • [Track-/+] = Select previous or next channel.
  • [Shift]+[Track-/+] = Move to the previous or next bank of 8 channels.

Transport Buttons
The transport buttons perform the following functions:

Button Function
Loop Used in conjunction with other buttons to activate loop functions
<< Rewind
>> Fast Forward
Stop Stop playback
Play Start playback
Record Arm the transport for recording

The ‘Loop’ button provides additional options and gives access to the following functions:

Buttons Function
Loop + Play Loop Playback
Loop + Record Loop Record
Loop + Stop Undo
Loop + RW Go to start
Loop + FF Go to end

Note: The loop button has no function when pressed by itself.

Controlling Instrument Parameters
It’s possible to assign the controls to instrument parameters in Pro Tools, when the T-series controller is in Internal Mode. Many of the AIR instruments and third-part plug-ins have a ‘Learn’ function.

For example, if you right-click on a parameter in the ‘XPand 2’ plug-in you will see menu with assignment options, as shown in this image. Select ‘Learn CC’ then move a fader or encoder on your T-series keyboard. That parameter should now be controlled by the pot.

Troubleshooting

If you encounter the warning shown in in this image, it is because the Impact series keyboards are not M-Audio keyboards. Simply click the ‘Don’t show this again’ option and then click ‘OK’.
