Take control with the touchscreen
With the touchscreen interface, you get comprehensive visibility and quick control over your project. Not only can you view top-level information such as track names/numbers, metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), fader/pan values, and automation modes, but you can also quickly access all of your plug-in and EQ parameters, trigger macro commands, perform surround panning, and much more. The high-resolution, LED-backlit display offers a wide viewing angle, bright graphics, and excellent color consistency.

The Artist Control touchscreen interface provides four views to enhance your workflow with any creative application:

  • Tracks View - In Tracks View, you get instant and direct access to your project's audio tracks to quickly record arm, solo, mute, or select them for editingwithout ever touching your mouse. Each track displays its current status, and up to 32 tracks can be displayed per pagesimply page down or up to see more. This greatly speeds up working with large projects, and displayed tracks automatically match the colors assigned to them in your project.
  • Soft Keys View - Trigger application functions, keystroke shortcuts, and macro commands directly from the touchscreen to speed up your workflow. Take a series of repetitive keyboard shortcuts that you use for editing and assign them to a single Soft Key. Assign various functions to the data wheel on the fly. Effortlessly navigate your application menus and moreall without your hands ever leaving the control surface. Artist Control displays 32 Soft Keys per page, but you can program as many Soft Keys as you want using the intuitive Soft Key Editor. To see more than 32 Soft Keys, simply page up/down or program Soft Keys to jump directly to specific pages to speed your navigation. Artist Control intelligently recognizes the current applicationeach application has an associated Application Set, which automatically loads the appropriate Soft Keys whenever you switch apps. Artist Control ships with preprogrammed Soft Keys for most popular audio and video applications, but you can easily create your own custom Soft Keys for your needs.
  • Surround View - Perform surround panning directly from the touchscreen for supporting applications, including Pro Tools HD, Nuendo, Cubase, Logic Pro, and Soundtrack Pro.
  • Setup View - In Setup View, you can assign the Monitor/Control Room knob to audio sources and destinations in applications that support this function, such as Avid Studio Monitor Express, which ships with Artist Control. You can also engage a talkback mic, dim/cut the control room volume, and cut monitor volume directly from the touchscreen.

Quickly and easily navigate projects
With its ergonomic layout, Artist Control puts the data entry wheel and transport controls right at your fingertips for easy navigation. You can also assign functions to the data wheelsuch as horizontal or vertical zoom, jog, shuttle, and morefor custom control. And use the Soft Keys to assign additional custom data wheel and transport functions for even greater flexibility in editing and navigating your project.

Mix with precision
Get accurate and smooth mixing control through four high-quality, motorized, touch-sensitive, 100mm long throw faders. Easily select tracks for editing just by touching the corresponding fader. Use dedicated keys to bank tracks (four at a time) or nudge tracks (one at a time) to quickly navigate through projects. You can even lock individual tracks to faders and store them as Layouts (up to 48 per project). Layouts are saved with your project for easy recall, 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.

Customize your control surface
Because Artist Series controllers are modular, you can combine them in a variety of configurations to suit your workflow. Customize your Artist Series system with up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color for total flexibilityup to 36 faders total. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surfaceor use them separatelyas each has its own Ethernet connection.
