How can I make the Nektar Panorama / Bitwig integration work on Linux? The installer I got from Nektar's site (after registering) only contains a PDF manual and a couple of Windows EXE files which I am supposed to run. There are no .js files, ZIP archives or anything else included. The "Nektar" section on BitWig site also has no scripts, just a link to Nektar's site.

This is Justin from Nektar tech support. This page was just brought to my attention. Our Bitwig integration for Panorama and Impact series controllers will work in Linux as it does in Windows/OSX. This has been the case since December, 2014. We don't provide a Linux installer on the website, so please contact Nektar support for details.

Thanks for your reply, justin3m. However, in may 2016, I received the following reply from "" (I quote): "You can use Panorama with Bitwig and Linux, since Panorama is a USB class compliant device. However deep Nektar DAW integration is only possible under Windows and MacOS as it utilises a special driver developed only for these platforms." Again, this is from May 2016.

UPDATE: Nektar support has answered my e-mail and explained that Panorama / Bitwig deep integration is only available for Windows and MacOS. Furthermore, the PC->Panorama communication protocol cannot be published so I cannot even write my own control script for Panorama if I wanted...

What a scam! I also have Nectar Panorama P6! Why do they even CLAIM that it is integrated with Bitwig if it is not completely integrated! JESUS!!!

I got it working thank you. Your software is great... I wish upgrade to 2.0 was cheaper though...
