Unhappy Notes play back to short

When I am in free style mode notes play back too short in sequencer. I have tried everything it's driving me crazy!!

I have reason essential balance and Nekta Panarama. You would think with this setup and legit software you wouldn't get these problems.


Had a nightmare with ignition key and now this. I have had more than my fare share of problems so far and i'm not happy.

This is a problem that's not quite a problem and easy to solve!

You've set up two copies of the same control surface in the preferences so Reason receives TWO signals every time you hit ONE key. This means the note will be cut off as soon as you play it. Go to Control Surfaces in preferences and make sure only one keyboard is selected (and has a green check mark next to it).

did you install the drivers before plugging the controller in or did you fuck it up?

I installed the drivers before switching controller on. Hmmm do I have to disconnect the lead from the computer as well? I wouldn't of thought that would make any difference. I have even had a sound tec round who has found the whole process a ball ache.

I think it's something to do with the Nekta Panarama. It's setup is different to other keyboard controllers like the Oxygen for example. Been following the you tube tutorial to set up and it doesn't seem be responding the same way. Got someone coming round to check it out. He's used to macs i'm not.

Hey Louise
I also have the Nektar and I remember a problem like this I had..was a few weeks ago now, I'll try to look up the support page I used.

Is this from notes played with the Pads? IIRC that was a part of my issue (I think)

In some cases this issue can be caused by the Panorama if you don't perform a factory reset after updating the firmware.
The issue is described here: Notes aren't recorded as played?

To fix the problem, turn off your P4 then hold the Patch- and Patch+ while turning it back on. Continue to hold the Patch-/+ buttons until you see a message that says "Unit is restoring factory defaults to all presets...".

Hope that helps.
