Take deep, hands-on control of your favorite audio and video applications with the Avid Artist Control V2, a compact software controller with unmatched integration and programmability that acts and feels like a physical extension of your software. Speed up and enhance your workflow with functionality far beyond what a mouse and keyboard can provide, so you can focus on being creative.
Work with your favorite software
Avid Artist Control V2 features EUCON (Extended User Control), a high-speed open control protocol that has been adopted by many of the world's leading software developers. With it, you can take control over almost all software functions of EUCON-enabled applications such as Pro Tools, Media Composer, Apple Logic, Apple Final Cut Pro, Steinberg Cubase, and many others. You gain high-resolution, high-speed control over almost all software functions, and a tightly connected “software as hardware" experience.
Avid Artist Control V2 Key features
Take control with EUCON
With Artist Control, you gain deep, integrated control over your favorite creative applications, such as Pro Tools 9, Media Composer, Logic, Nuendo, Cubase, Maestro, and more. EUCON carries high-resolution control information for faders, knobs, displays, and more between Artist Control and whatever application is in focus on your computer. This enables you to quickly switch between multiple applications - and even workstations - at the touch of a button, with all controls and displays automatically matching the selected application.
Take control with the touchscreen
With the touchscreen interface, you get comprehensive visibility and quick control over your project. Not only can you view top-level information such as track names/numbers, metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), fader/pan values, and automation modes, but you can also quickly access all of your plug-in and EQ parameters, trigger macro commands, perform surround panning, and much more. The high-resolution, LED-backlit display offers a wide viewing angle, bright graphics, and excellent color consistency.
Quickly and easily navigate projects
With its ergonomic layout, Artist Control puts the data entry wheel and transport controls right at your fingertips for easy navigation. You can also assign functions to the data wheel - such as horizontal or vertical zoom, jog, shuttle, and more - for custom control. And use the Soft Keys to assign additional custom data wheel and transport functions for even greater flexibility in editing and navigating your project.
Mix with precision
Get accurate and smooth mixing control through four high-quality, motorized, touch-sensitive, 100mm long throw faders. Easily select tracks for editing just by touching the corresponding fader. Use dedicated keys to bank tracks (four at a time) or nudge tracks (one at a time) to quickly navigate through projects. You can even lock individual tracks to faders and store them as Layouts (up to 48 per project). Layouts are saved with your project for easy recall, making mixing large projects a breeze. Save multiple Layouts to mix drums, keyboards, guitars, and so on, or just lock a fader to act as a master fader.
Customize your software controller
Because Artist Series controllers are modular, you can combine them in a variety of configurations to suit your workflow. Customize your Artist Series system with up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color for total flexibility - up to 36 faders total. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surface - or use them separately - as each has its own Ethernet connection.
