Avid 99006516900 Overview

Artist Mix from Avid is a EUCON enabled control surface that delivers the feel and deep software integration of a professional console, but in a cost effective and compact package. Eight motorized, touch-sensitive, 100mm long throw faders, and eight touch- and velocity-sensitive rotary encoders provide fast access to a variety of software functions, from adjusting audio levels, plug-in parameters, panning, automation modes, and much more, with excellent visual feedback.

The EUCON protocol carries high-resolution control information for faders, knobs, displays, and more between the control surface and whatever application is in focus on the computer. This enables the user 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. Instant positional feedback is displayed on the high-resolution OLED displays.

A "Fader Flip" function allows for controlling plug-in parameters with the faders. Bank tracks (eight at a time) or nudge tracks (one at a time) using dedicated keys that assist in navigation through a project. Individual tracks can be locked to faders and stored as Layouts, which are saved with the project for easy recall (up to 48 per project), 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.

The eight 128 x 64-pixel OLED displays allow for easily viewing track names/numbers, detailed metering data (from mono to 5.1 surround), parameter names/values, current automation mode, and more. And because the Artist Series controllers are modular, they can be combined in a variety of configurations to form larger control surfaces. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surface, or use them separately.

question

Does this work with reason 8
Asked by: Daniel W.
The Avid Technologies Artist Mix is not listed as an approved MIDI controller for Remote Control on Reason 8. But this doesn't mean you cannot use it. The Artist mix can be set up as a generic controller inside of Reasons preferences.

question

How well does it work in Media Composer ? I'm mostly an offline editor looking to fasten my workflow by avoiding to go to in the Audio Mixer panel all the time. (maybe even clear some workspace on screen...)
Asked by: Jp
Media Composer is a EUCON enabled software and the Artist Mix will integrate seamlessly. By offering accurate hands on control of several parameters you will be able to speed up many audio tasks that are cumbersome using mouse and monitor.

question

What can I connect for I/O? Is there a good 16-32 input combo with the artist mix?
Asked by: Anonymous
This unit is a control surface only that is Eucon enabled, meaning it will work with any DAW that is Eucon compatible. This is most DAWs on the market. You can hook up any i/o with this surface as they both connect directly to the computer for functionality. thanks.
