Eucon Fader 'assign'

Would be nice that if you hard assign a fader to track 20... when you're cycling thorugh your unassigned faders, eucon would take out the 'other' track 20.. so you're not wasting a fader.

 

I find this would be useful when in editorial mode, as I'd like to keep my dialogue, FX, music and master on the extreme right.. but DONT want them showing up on the other faders as I'm scrolling around.

 

Make sense?

Multiple MC-Mixes - Define which unit is the "master"

I'll try to explain this the best I can.

Current setup from left to right is: MCMIX, MCMIX,TRANSPORT and MCMIX

Centered on the desk, the 2nd MC-Mix is pretty much to my center position.

Workflow wise, when I want to activate a plugin or config - all the parameters by default spill over to the left-most MC. This is where things get annoying as my eyes are still looking center... now i have to lose my train of thought... 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 »

Pre-assigned Jog and Shuttle Wheel

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.

Assignable buttons on MC Mix

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.

Additional Virtual Programmable Buttons for Artist Series

I would like to see a Eucon software update that would allow me access a 3rd or more layers of virtual buttons on my MC Transport. To access this 3rd layer one would simply double tap the shift button and voila...28 additional assignable keys at your command. Continue the series of taps to access additional layers. I believe the Artist Series devices are capable of smashing the competition if they offer an abundance of... more »

Faders slam you bank switch or reset

Latest firmware/driver update Sept 1 2011

I just have to throw a thanks out into the void to Avid for the latest update. I was bitching and screaming about the faders for years.... mainly that when they reset to zero or you bank switch - all the fader slam down with such force that you could literally launch an object across the room with the faders... or more commonly - they hit the bottom of the fader area with... more »

System 5 Track arming should match Pro Tools stems.

Punching into Pro Tools from the 403 does not correspond to track types on Pro Tools. If I have 3x 5.1 busses (stems) on the System 5 and matching 5.1 Stems on Pro Tools if I arm the first 5.1 stem on the 402 it arms all the tracks in Pro Tools. The 5.1 stem on S5 sends out 6 tracks of arming on P2 and the Protools sees each arm as 6 tracks so it arms all 3 5.1 tracks.

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 »

View Sends with Artist Control Soft-knobs

Can you program EuCon so that you can open the selected Send Assignment by pushing the Soft knobs.

e.g. the same effect when you push a soft knob to enter a desired plug-in, but in this case to view the pop-up Send Assignment channel Strip. Also a way to change your Send Assignments view to al Channels from within the Artist Control?
