My Nektar Panorama P6 is a great keyboard controller for Reason and other Digital Audio Workstations but there is a problem with them it is the Encoders and Mod Wheels have this rubber on them and after time this rubber starts to get sticky. This is not a good thing and you will find some of that rubber can get on your hands. I got tired of dealing with this and thought if I could just change out the Knobs, Faders, and Mod Wheels my P6 would be good as new.

In looking into this I found it was very possible to do, there are tons of places that sell encoders and I started searching. I ended up finding some plastic Encoders and getting them. I thought while I was doing this I would upgrade my Panorama P6 with some colored Encoders to help me find the Encoder I need easier. I choose Red and Black Encoders with no line on top of the Knobs because they speed indefinitely in either direction. For the Faders, I wanted a white line on them, and then for the Master Fader, I went with a darker red and black line. This really helps out finding the Econders and looks awesome.

Next, I had to figure out how to get the rubber off the Mod Wheels. It would mean taking the Panorama P6 apart, not hard though.

I have made a .PDF guide to help you do all this with links to the websites I got the Encoders and how I went about removing the rubber from the Panorama P6 Mod Wheels.

You can find this guide in the
Free Stuff Forum for our Reason User+ members.

If you have any questions please post them in this forum and I will help you out the best I can.
