A Compact, Elegant, and Effective DAW Control Surface
The Avid Artist Mix control surface puts eight motorized faders and an array of programmable buttons and knobs at your command for maximum control over your DAW in a small footprint. Avid put some of the coolest features from its impressive full-sized consoles into the Artist Mix, including touch-sensitive, responsive faders, and multifunction rotary encoders. This well-designed box is ultra-functional, while sporting a decidedly uncluttered appearance. Now you can get the most out of Pro Tools with the compact, versatile Avid Artist Mix!
High-resolution control over Pro Tools
The Artist Mix features EuCon, a high-speed control protocol developed by Avid that enables simultaneous control of multiple applications and even workstations over an Ethernet cable at 250 times the speed and eight times the resolution of MIDI. EuCon automatically detects whatever application is in the foreground and instantly sets the high-resolution touchscreen and displays, motorized faders, and arsenal of controls to match. There are over a thousand Pro Tools features that are accessible over EuCon and it continues to increase as newer features are added.
Touch-sensitive motorized faders
Eight high-quality ALPS 100mm long throw faders offer accurate and smooth mixing; touching a fader will automatically select the corresponding track. Avid consoles are renowned for their quality components and smooth operation, and now the Artist Mix gives you that "feel" in an affordable, compact unit!
Multifunction rotary encoders
The Artist Mix's eight rotary encoders give you direct control over everything from panning and gain to editing your most powerful plug-ins and EQ. These knobs and keys can also be pressed to select/deselect and navigate through parameters. Knob set selector keys allow you to quickly assign the rotary encoders to control plug-ins, EQs, panning, signal routing, and much more. You can either control the same parameter across all tracks or assign all knobs to one track for easy editing of multiple parameters at once.
Compatible with the FREE Pro Tools | Control app
If you have an iPad, the FREE Pro Tools Control app's layouts will speed up your workflow tremendously. Create a layout for your drum tracks, one up for guitar and bass, one for keys, and another for VCA tracks, then recall the layouts via your iPad when you want to work with a specific group of tracks. The iPad app has tons of other uses — in fact, you'll gain access to over a thousand Pro Tools features.
