Modular Control System

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 »

MC MIX Channel Name Should Stay when Fader Touched

When I touch any channel knob, the display changes to Channel level. So if you have several fingers on different channels, you soon loose track of what channel has what on it. Do not need to have a read out of channel level, as it is obvious from where the fader is, what the channel level is. This does not happen on a Mackie MCU. So you try mixing with 2 mc mixes and have say 4 fingers on each unit, and you try and remember... more »

EuCon Settings interaction with Artist MC touch screen

In the EuCon Settings Softkeys tab: It would be great if that screen could be made active in functionality via a check box whereas selecting a button there was the same as selecting it on the Softkeys. You could leave the desired button pages open like a palette and click on it as you would the Artist touch screen to relegate a command. I.E., the surface keys could be showing a whole screen of commands, not just the 12... more »

Fix EQ3 Plugin layout

The plugin layout for EQ3 is horrendous. Specifically having to switch between Q and frequency is ridiculous. I always need both of those controls at the same time. I would much rather have an extra page of parameters than have to switch to Q any time I need it. Custom plugin mapping would solve this problem as well but this seems pretty basic and is not a problem on any of the other avid control surfaces.

MC Color balls - Surround panners?

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! :)

MC Control Surround Panner and Digital Performer

Is it possible to have surround panner on MC control touch screen working with Digital Performer 7 and correct it with PT ? Surround seems to be a bit forsaken on Artist Series. See - Submitted by 619902583 1 year ago

Automation Control from MC Control

On any Selected tracks the Automation control mode cannot be assigned via the touchscreen or Softkeys. You can select the Automation mode with a mouse but not with the menus on the MC Control. This bug need to be fixed once you start to use the MC Control you get use to it and it is an interuption to your workflow to have to grab the mouse or trackball to change the status of Automation. I would like to see this fixed... more »

Fix EQ page not always showing

Pasted from the DUC
EQ page not always showing.

(Problems after show/hide tracks and after switching layouts also if you duplicate a track, the duplicated tracks EQ doesnt show and if you add a new track, the EQ on the track before that wont´show.)

On which surface?

Thats strange.. it´s only on the artist mix, not on the artist control.

The control behaves differently, if I select a track without EQ plug-in... more »

VCA grougs for System5 and Fusion

Please add VCA-style groups to System5 and Fusion consoles. Group masters are great, but any channel can only be assigned to one master.
VCA's (like in PT) allow faders to be assigned to more than one group. This is extremely helpful for bigger mix sessions and better overview.
It is enough if the faders are linked in this case. Linked controls of eq, panning and so on like with group masters is not necessary. But the... more »
