With MC Pro, you can take deep, integrated control over up to four of your favorite EUCON-enabled creative applications, such as Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo, Pyramix, Digital Performer, and more. EUCON carries high-resolution control information for faders, knobs, displays, and more between MC Pro and the selected application. This enables you 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.
|High-resolution, high-speedcontrol||With 8x the resolution and 250x the speed of MIDI, EUCON gives you powerful, highly responsive tactile control.|
|Work with multiple applications||Speed up modern, multi-app workflows. With MC Pro, you can switch applications directly from the surface, and all surface controls and displays will instantly match your current application.|
|Control multiple workstations||Access any Mac or PC workstation running EUCON-enabled software on your extended network, with keyboard and mouse commands automatically forwarded to the selected workstation—ideal for multi- workstation workflows.|
|Future proof||Avid and its development partners continue to develop EUCON, making it easy to add new features and functionality through software updates—EUCON even supports HUI and Mackie Control protocols for even greater flexibility.|
MC Pro is a professional surface that puts full editing control at your fingertips. Work faster and easier with 56 LCD SmartSwitches, four faders, jog wheel, monitoring section, and touchscreen for the ultimate in software control. You also get an integrated full-sized keyboard, as well as a trackball and jog/shuttle wheel, for easy keystroke editing and navigation.
Quickly access files, system setup, and program various functions from the high-resolution touchscreen, which sits just above the keyboard. The screen also shows you a permanent display of filenames, transport state, fader labels, and the main menu. You can also customize each section of the surface using the Setup button, which brings up a setup screen for that section of the surface.
The touchscreen includes the following display screens:
Instantly perform application functions, keystroke shortcuts, and macro commands using the LCD display SmartSwitches that automatically update as you switch between applications. Take a series of repetitive keyboard shortcuts you use for editing and perform them all at once with a single SmartSwitch press.
Assign various functions to the wheel on the fly. Effortlessly navigate your application menus and more— all without your hands ever leaving the controller. MC Pro comes equipped with default Application Sets for most DAWs, but you can create your own to speed up any task.
MC Pro includes eight touch-sensitive rotary knobs with LED display rings that function as a SuperChannel, enabling you to control EQ, dynamics, and other DAW plug-ins on the selected channel, with keys to navigate to additional parameters if needed.
You also have an additional “Assignable Knob” that automatically picks up the current active control in your application. For example, if you move your cursor over a pan control, the knob will act as a pan control in EUCON-aware applications that support this function. You can also lock this knob to a particular function.
You can use the ten SmartSwitches above the trackball to act as transport controls, with multicolor displays for showing orange, or green when in play, and red when recording, or program these switches to manage any transport or sync function—in any order—to exactly match the transport layout you prefer.
You can also choose to permanently display SMPTE or MIDI time code and locate registers on the touchscreen, and add an optional external synchronizer for multiple machine control. You can even use the SmartSwitches to modify the function of the jog wheel on the fly.
