I'm an analog guy, and I use the Artist Mix and Artist Control to adjust levels, pans, solo muliple tracks at the same time and other channel strip related functions. It's also very cool when I want a "hands-on approach" while tweaking something like a filter cutoff and resonance of my Logic Pro instruments like I do on my Moogs, or when I’m searching for the right compressor setting and need to move the threshold and ratio at the same time - a very cool, analog-like experience. The Artist Series is my main control surface, letting me control anything from Logic, Pro Tools, and Live, to Finder, Safari, Mail… everything.
I think the full configurability offered by Artist Control’s touch-screen section is great. Layout, recall, key command assignments…cool. The assignable hardware soft keys are one of my favorite features. I’m always adding new commands, and it’s greatly improved my workflow. EuCon is fast and perfectly integrated with my favorite software, and I can build configurations as needed. Extremely versatile.
