The Avid MC Artist Mix is a sleek control surface that gives you the feel and deep software integration of a professional console at a more affordable price. Mix with a level of speed and control simply not possible when mixing with just a mouse. And get fast access to a variety of software functions right from the surface to adjust audio levels, plug-in parameters, panning, automation modes, and much more—with excellent visual feedback—all in a compact footprint that fits perfectly between your keyboard and screen.
Artist Mix features EUCON (Extended User Control), a high-speed open control protocol that has been adopted by many of the world's leading software developers. Pro Tools, Media Composer, Apple Logic, Apple Final Cut Pro, Steinberg Cubase, and many other applications support EUCON™, giving you highly responsive control over almost all software functions. You gain a tightly connected experience in which the control surface acts and feels like a physical extension of your software.
Select tracks with a touch
Artist Mix features eight touch-sensitive faders, enabling you to call attention to a track in the software by simply touching a fader. Used in combination with the Bank and Nudge keys, you can navigate large mixes quickly, without clicking through your software. You can also record-enable, mute, solo, and assign tracks right from the surface. In addition, the mute and solo keys do double duty as transport control keys too.
Control plug-ins, EQ, and more
The eight touch-sensitive knobs at the top of the surface can be used to control multiple functions. In normal mode, use the knobs to pan tracks. In channel mode, the knobs can be used to adjust individual parameters for plug-ins, EQ, dynamics, aux sends, VCA groups, and more. You can even flip control from the knobs to the faders, providing an alternative way of adjusting parameters for things like a graphic EQ.
Get detailed feedback
View track information, status, and feedback for each fader strip through eight OLED screens. Each display shows the track’s name and name of the parameter currently assigned to the knob, along with a graphical display of the parameter setting. Plus, you can view meters (clip, peak, and normal) for mono, stereo, or surround tracks, as well as the track’s automation mode.
