Eucon Blank Layouts

When I make a new layout in Eucon the default is autofilling the channels rather than starting them blank. Really time consuming having to reset them all.

Midi Learn not recognized on Avid S3

My concern is that my Avid S3 will not recognize midi learn when I activate midi learn in a third party plugin. Most third party plugins have parameters that are mapped to the S3 but some do not. For those third party plugins that are not mapped to the S3 is would be very helpful if the S3 recognized the midi learn feature. Most less expensive midi controllers recognize midi learn so that you are able to move a rotary ...more »

SEL button shift for Trim automation toggle

I'd like the SEL button to also have a shift layer that enables the Trim automation mode to be toggled.

 

So just as the REC/A button can be used to (1) record enable a track, or (2/shifted) to toggle through automation modes; the SEL button would (1) select the track or (2/shifted) to toggle trim automation.

Avid S3 channel to follow channel selection by clicking a plugin with the mouse or the select key as normal

Currently the workflow for the S3 is to click select on the S3 channel then hit insert and select what plugin we wish to control with the top 16 encoders. If the first insert is selected on channel 1 and we want to control the first insert on channel 2 then we hit the select key on channel 2 of the S3 and so on..... This works however there is not a day goes past where I don't find myself getting confused and making ...more »

2 S3's act as 32 channel controller

Can we have 2 S3 act as a 32 channel controller? Especially with the upcoming PT Dock, a 32 channel S3 on both sides would be great for filmmix at least! This feature could be unlocked in Eucon?

Encoder Gearing

Encoder gearing and speed needs to be user adjustable. Right now it is either super slow or super fast with no middle ground. Makes it very hard to adjust plugins on the S3.

Playlist control (solo) mode

A playlist mode that would utilize the fader buttons to correspond with a focused track's playlist. For instance: when comping vocals, you can have 8 playlists laid out left to right so you can quickly hit the solo button to hear the playlists. Would love to stop using the mouse for hitting those little solo buttons for playlists ;)

Visual indication of parameters on buttons

Would be ideal if there was a way to see that there was a parameter mapped to a button EG: led is dimly lit, flashes, etc. There are many plugin parameters that are mapped to "in" buttons or knob buttons that you don't know about until you press every other button looking for it (eq band in, etc.)

Plugin Mode that utilized both encoder rows for same plugin

This is similar to the previously suggested "channel strip" mode, except it would relate to plugins. When user selects a plugin, the mapping is spread across both rows of encoders (top & bottom). EG: eq would use top row for eq gain, bottom row would be eq frequency... this would replicate the way most control surfaces and hardware EQ"s are laid out.

S3 VCA Spill improvements...

while I like the new VCA spill feature I wonder if there is a way of not "attentioning" the VCA fader you want to spill.

 

because the way it is right now on the S3, you loose your upper row of knobs whenever you enter VCA spill mode. (the S3 asks you if you want to add EQ or DYN on the VCA....)

Panning Window follows track selection

Since Plugin-Windows do that when working with S3, what a huge timersaver it would be, if also panner, and sendlevel, could follow your track selection.
