Nektar release updated Panorama support for Reason 8
Nektar released a new Panorama Reason installer delivering full Panorama compatibility with Reason 8 as well as backwards compatibility from Reason 5 and up.
New features include the ability to create devices in Reason 8, directly from Panorama, by selecting Reason default devices from a Panorama popup menu or navigating Rack Extensions in the Reason 8 browser. Building a track from scratch without the use of a mouse, is now a reality with Panorama.
