some way of converting S5 automation to Pro Tools and maybe Pro Tools to S5
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.
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
Release a Euphonix-branded single motorised fader and transport controller with a small desktop footprint akin to the Frontier Alphatrack and PreSonus FaderPort but much better and with EuCon integration. Would be very handy for portable rigs who don't want to drag around their MC Control or MC Mix.
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 »
The current connection system for multiple MC units is flimsy and of poor design. Try moving 4 connected units from a desk- it's a wobbly flimsy POS.
There needs to be an option to connect some sort of rigid support bar across the underside of all units to create a SOLID connection solution.
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 »
When a track is hidden in Pro Tools it can't be assigned to a fader on the Artist Series controllers like MC Control and MC Mix, and thus the solo and mute buttons don't work either. This works with Command 8, as well as D-Command and D-Control. It seems an oversight not to enable this in the Artist Series.
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?
The soft keys window either needs to be angled up so it can be seen straight on from a seated position, or there needs to be an adjustment for viewing angle. If it were angled up it would have the added benefit of a less deep footprint.
I could do without the transport section. I never use it and find the Pro Tools key commands faster. It eats up valuable real estate. I would rather either lose the right side of the console and move the buttons underneath the soft keys to make it smaller, or have four more faders on the right side for a total of eight.
I would like to be able to program soft keys to control specific tracks so that I don't need to use up one of my four faders to mute/solo guide tracks or auxiliary faders that I frequently toggle on and off.
I think the MC Color would be great as surround panners -
Think of it - could be simple to implement as there's no moving parts with the balls. Once you let go - the control sound is in position.. and when you touch the ball again - you could move it around accordingly. Might not be as dead-accurate as a Joystick - but would still be very usefull! :)
A frame that can be populated with control modules such as a fader, knob, transport control, music keyboard, drum pad. Some modules would be square and take up a 1x1 space such as a single knob, some would take up a much larger space like a music keyboard. We all do different jobs and we all use ProTools for our own purposes. Some record, some mix and some master. Some people are sound designers and some are songwriters. ...more »
