As you do with the M-Audio Keyboard and with the C24, allow users to custom map 3rd party plug-ins on the Artist Series
Lots of knobs with buttons to map 7 band parametric EQ's, etc. like D-Control does. Would also be great for synthesizers, delays, reverbs, anything that has more parameters than can be addressed with the 8 encoders on current units so as not having to scroll through page after page.
The Artist Control's touch screen surround panner was a major selling point for me, but I have yet to figure out how to use it to get the sound to come from the corners of the panning field. The control only allows the placement to be within a circle which is tangent upon the centers of the four 'walls', but well within the corners of the 'room'. Or am I missing something?
It would be awesome if you could spill VCA groups out onto EuCon surfaces similar to the Icon functionality. I think it would be way faster than setting up layouts for every group I already made in Pro Tools.
I depend on soft keys all the time for going from auto latch all to auto touch all to auto trim all etc... all the time The C24 has this as do the D commands and the euphonix had it working fine under 2.5.5 Even though eucon implementation is great Its really a pain that these soft keys have been taken out of the mc control AUTO section Please give us a set of soft keys that will implement All Auto Off All Read All Touch... more »
I would like to see a new compact mixing control surface that will replace the Command 8 and the MC Control. Put the best of the Artist series controllers and the best of the Avid control surface together. 1. First would have to be full EuCon support. You should be able to expand to 32 faders (four units) with a transport unit like the MC Transport (or even better, include the function in a main surface, then have expandable... more »
The one thing I find about the Eucon as a whole... be it Logic, Protools, DP.. whichever DAW... is that if you go to delete a stack of tracks at once or one after another in succession - the eucon/mcmix is SLOW to react and it stalls the DAW until the faders update. Just try holding down delete or arrowing up and down tracks in the arrange of logic. Or show/hide numerous tracks quickly as you would under normal... more »
An iPad EUCON App. with just the touchscreen unit from the MC CONTROL reflected would be nice
The Eucon is so time-consuming to use. Before every mix it takes hours to set up layouts. Here's what I'd like to see: -Select the tracks in PT you want to create a layout from -Click a to-be-invented-button called "create new layout from selection". -Name the layout in the Eucon-app. Currently I have to scroll down an endless list of tracks 16 times to assign 16 faders to a single layout. Takes for ever in a film session... more »
EUCON and Artist series currently allows "aliases" of faders to be placed/arranged in a "custom fader" manner using the EUCON layouts feature. These layouts cant be saved/imported/exported or used outside the session you create them in. I suggest the layouts get stored in the protools session document so that they can be imported/exported using the PT Import session data window similarly to custom fader groups. They would... more »
I would like to be able to program a default function of the Shuttle and Jog Wheel instead of having to press a soft key to engage a function I use 90% of the time. In Protools and Reason, I primarily use the Jog wheel to jog through the session and the Shuttle Wheel to scrub audio. This would free-up precious soft key real estate which I can use for other important things like Markers Jumps.
MC Control used to have fader flip to control Aux's in HUI mode on a soft key. MC Mix still has fader flip so why is it not available on the Control? I find this a very useful tool when automating sends, I hope others do too.
Make Studio Monitor Express actually work and integrate it into a control room type section of pro tools just like Steinberg have with cubase. The current ASIO/Core Audio type bridging is terrible ans doesnt work. Either make a plugin that inserts on the master fader or a separate page but most of all id really like to be able to use the monitor control pot on the MC control for something, preferably my monitor level... more »
I checked out both of these units at a recent Avid event. I liked them. One thing, that even the Avid rep strongly agreed on with me on, was the green "On" button and the red "Solo" button on these controllers is counter intuitive. Pro Tools does not have "on" buttons. Pro Tools has "Mute" buttons above each fader. Why not take the lettering off the physical buttons, leave them the same color and let the end user... more »
"Let a knob be a knob" Users need the option to use the knobs on Artist Control and Artist Mix in a Linear fashion, where a given range of knob-sweep outputs a given range of control data, regardless of speed of turning the knob. The way it works now is driven by velocity: You get more control sweep the faster you turn the knob, and finer-grained control for slower moves. Accelerated knobs can be handy for quickly... more »
