FEATURES

CONTROL SURFACE FEATURES

Grab hold of your mix
Why edit and mix one thing at a time with a keyboard and mouse? Artist Mix greatly accelerates your workflow so you can complete projects fasterwithout having to click around a software interface. Record-enable, solo, mute, and automate tracks from the surface. Adjust volume levels across multiple tracks simultaneously. Fine-tune compressors, gates, EQ, and more with a twist. You can even punch in and out of recordings by connecting a footswitch.

Quickly navigate projects
No matter how large the session, you can easily get to the tracks you need directly from the surface. Bank through fader strips eight at a time. Or use the Nudge key to navigate through tracks one fader strip at a time. The surface also provides full transport controls. Not only do you get the usual suspectsplay, stop, record, fast-forward, and rewindbut also RTZ (return to zero), plus previous and next keys to navigate markers.

Adjust parameters with a twist
Control everything from panning and gain to plug-ins, EQ settings, and more using the eight press-and-turn knobs. With their touch-sensitivity, you can write automation quickly and intuitively. Theyre also velocity-sensitive, enabling you to quickly sweep from minimum to maximum parameter values in one turn. Or make very precise adjustments by turning the knob slowly. Press the knob tops to instantiate plug-ins, sends, and more.

Mix with precision
Get accurate and smooth mixing control through eight motorized, touch-sensitive, 100mm long throw faders. Just touch a fader to select the corresponding track for editing. You can also lock individual tracks to faders and store them as Layoutsup to 48 per projectfor easy recall, making mixing large projects a breeze. You can save multiple Layouts to mix groups of tracks, such as drums or backing vocals, or just lock a fader to act as a master fader.

Create a custom surface
All Artist Series controllers are modular, so you can combine them together into a single slimline surface to suit your workflow. Connect up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color in any order for a total of up to 36 faders. Or use them separately, as each controller has its own Ethernet connection.

Overall this is a great unit. It has enough faders to do nice stem mix automation and is simple enough to set up within a network. Being Eucon, the protocol is far more capable than hui, and has a number of features which enhanced my mixdown sessions. I am using it with PTHD 12 on Mac Yosemite, Mac Pro 4.1. Next, I will add a control unit in order to take advantage of locked tracks. Gotta love the modular approach, affordability, and actual feel of the Artist Series. I would give it a ten if the legs allowed a bit more of an angle toward the rear, but certainly not a deal breaker. Looks cool on the desk, just have to keep my cat from chasing faders!
