Overview

Super slim, streamlined DAW controller for the studio or mobile setup.

The Platform Nano is a MIDI control surface for producers, engineers, musicians and home studio enthusiasts who want hands-on control of their modern “in the box” digital music production. The Platform Nano adds tactile control with one full-sized motorized fader and four rotary dual-function encoder knobs. Backlit buttons for Mute, Solo, Automation and Transport control, a jog wheel are provided to access to your entire mix by banking across tracks in groups of 8 or 1 channel at a time.

If you are looking for a portable, wireless solution to control your DAW, look no further. The PN-1 optional module adds a rechargeable battery and Bluetooth connectivity to the Platfrom NANO, making it the first fully wireless DAW control surface. This is ideal in a variety of situations, such as giving artists the ability to set their monitor or reverb level in the vocal booth, or engineers to set levels from different listening positions.

Mackie Control and HUI protocols provide seamless integration with most popular Digital Audio Workstations. Overlays for Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton Live, ProTools, Logic, Reason, Studio One, Bitwig, FL Studio, Adobe Audition, Digital Performer, Sonar, Samplitude and Reaper come standard with your controller.

Included free software
The Phantom Nano comes with free recording software, such as Harrison 32C Vocal Intensity Processor, a "greatest hits" collection of features from Harrison's analog console heritage, Harrison AVA plug-ins and Mixbus32C workstation; Tracktion DAW Essentials, a collection of 16 contemporary FX plug-ins for use with any DAW; Dotec Audio plug-ins for streaming, podcasting, recording and mixing; and Bitwig Studio 8-Track, the trim and effective digital audio workstation to start producing, performing and designing sounds like a pro, all available via download upon purchase and registration
