Product information - Nectar Pacer

MIDI controller

Nektar Pacer is a MIDI controller with extensive functions and a solid steel case that meets the demands of professional musicians. It is the first Foot Controller with Nectar DAW integration. Dedicated RGB LED illuminated icons show the control mapping and status of important transport and track functions for popular DAWs such as Bitwig Studio, Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, GarageBand, Reason and Reaper. External footswitches and expression pedals can be connected for further expansion and four relays can be programmed for external switch control connected to the amp channel and reverb switching. MCU control is supported, as are MIDI setups for Pro Tools and storing 24 presets in four banks.

Summary from SOS magazine February 2019


  • An effective and intuitive MIDI-based DAW foot controller
  • Can store and replay complex sequences of MIDI commands and relay-controlled switching in studio and live environments
  • Very good value, given its control capabilities


  • Only a limited amount of information can be shown on the display screen
  • A good librarian/editor program could be transformative


The Pacer is, at heart, an impressive DAW MIDI based foot controller, although the extent to which all of its capabilities can be utilised does depend on the DAW program involved. Its other MIDI and relay-switching functionalities open up wider applications in controlling multiple effects, amplifiers, etc., in both studio and live environments.


“Although I was very impressed by the range of non-DAW-specific functionality that Nektar have managed to cram into the Pacer, it remains, at heart, a floorboard DAW control surface and excels in that role. However, the extent of its integration or compatibility with your preferred DAW will determine the extent of its capabilities in that regard.

Whether or not the Pacer’s wider MIDI control options will add value to its DAW control capabilities is going to depend on how you organize your workflow, both in the studio and on stage. However, the extent of its functionality makes the Pacer a competitively priced, value-for-money controller given the facilities and flexibility that it has to offer.”

- Bob Thomas, Sound on Sound (February 2019)
