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 »
With the MC Mix and the MC Control I have 12 fader but can only bank in 4-fader-steps. I want to bank all my 12 faders at ones.
I don't no how about two MC Mix, but if you can there only in 8-fader-steps than it would be better to bank in 16-fader-steps.
when adjusting AVID channel-strip on the Artist Control I wish the LPF and HPF were on the opposite side. It´s kind of counter-intuitive to adjust the low end of a channel on the right side of the controls and the high end on the left side. While the graphical representation in the plugin window is vice versa. I understand that the word HIGH pass filter is tempting to put on the right side where the high frequencies... more »
Is it possible to bring into MC Control tactile screen the graphic view of EQ's and Dynamics Channel Strip plug-in so that we can control it easily. Channel Strip is now integrated to PT10 and is a great simulation. The parameters (45) are too difficult to control with the MC Mix (I have 3 of them) and are nearly not readable. It would be great to use the tatile screen either with finger or with the rotary buttons.
Would be great if you could assign eucon faders from within protools, that would then just auto-assign when launching your session...
It's very clumsy as-is using the eucon assign. It should be full recall, and not outside of protools whatsoever.
In other DAW's like Logic, Artis Transport could have the Jog Wheel assigned to whatever fader, button, or parameter you click on. This feature is called Assignable Knob and it is a HUGE time saver for the Artis Transport User. It alone it worth the purchase, unfortunately this feature is not available in PT...
When the fader is up near the REC and SEL buttons, there is very little space to press these buttons without bumping the fader and messing up the mix. Please make more room here or move the buttons out of the way.
"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 »
After all these years the feature that has been present on all non-Eucon Avid controllers is still missing. Insert mode should follow plugins opened/targeted on screen. On Command|8, Control24, C|24, Icon, Pro Control, HUI controllers insert mode is always focused on currently targeted plugin (with little red target button in plugin window corner). Why is this so important? Let's assume we have a very large session.... more »
The Monitor / Control Room Knob in the Artist Control has no functionality whatsoever in Pro Tools at the moment. Please make this available or just assignable so it could control a Master Fader.
In the near further I would love to see a Eucontrol update that would enable me to assign additional frequently used functions to the side function keys of the MC Mix (Chan, Inserts buttons etc...). I would assign a button that would select all tracks. Another button would select certain groups in PT9 and so on.
Something with a master fader, surround panner, useful things like automation mode buttons for selected tracks, solo defeats, sync online/offline, preroll, click etc.. The current automation select for the artist series sucks SOOO much. Modifier + cycle automations modes from a button jammed in between faders where you can accidently touch them and write junk automation... honestly.. who thought this was a good... more »
Please, make the pedal input into a user assignable key command, so it can be used with a talkback plugin like the one from source elements..
Or better yet, program the talkback functionality into protools, with auto talkback and dimmer..
As it stands, talkback is kind of a problem with an artist/omni setup.
It would be nice if you could program soft keys to recall your fader lay out!
There's no way to create a Smart Tool macro in Eucon, by the looks of things. Try as I might, I can't seem to press the two buttons together fast or slow enough on the Artist Control surface to engage the Smart Tool, which I use to edit more than the Trimmer, Grabber, and Selection Tools combined. I want this to be a one button macro and I want to be able to program it to my User Softkeys.
