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.

Title says it all. I've been using the for 2 years now and it is ok, but it feels really really cheap. The build quality is terrible. I have the original Euphonix MC Control and the buttons and faders are so much better. If Avid wants to sell this, then price it better. This is not worth more that $500.

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!

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
