Artist Series Changes the Way I Work
The way I work in my studio is completely different since I brought in the Artist Series. I was always a mouse guy, but being able to be hands-on with the Artist Mix and Artist Control has freed me up completely. There is no comparison between clicking a mouse and having a hands-on controller like the Artist Series. I work faster and the workflow is slicker - the touch and the feel are totally conducive to creativity.
Fast & Intuitive
Right out of the box the Artist Series was so cool, the pre assigned buttons for cutting tools and erase makes everything a lot faster than clicking a mouse through a menu! It’s fast and intuitive. Things like using the scroll wheel in Logic for zooming, scrolling, jog, shuttle and editing functions makes composing, editing and mixing flow better. It was completely tedious on the mouse trying to click on the right spot to scroll and zoom but now I use the play and stop transport keys on the Artist Control and it just makes my life easier.
EuCon Connects to Logic Pro, Nuendo & Final Cut ProThe Avid controllers are now the centerpiece of my studio. Because of EuCon, it’s the only gear I need for Logic, Nuendo and Final Cut. I can switch between any app that I am using at the time just by pushing a button. When David and I mixed our last album, Decade,on a large format System 5, it was awesome and got us hooked. When I am working on the Artist Series, I get the feeling that I am mixing on a huge $200,000 mixing console but it’s all on a compact little module that fits in my backpack.
Changing The way I Work
As an audio and visual artist I am always trying to find new and interesting ways to perform and communicate to my audience, and using the technology of the Artist Series has given me a whole new perspective on how I can do this. The Artist Series’ clean simple design, ease-of-use and ability to switch between multiple–applications in a LIVE VENUE has me rethinking what I could possibly do in my next Rabbit show. I assure you this is just the next level of Rabbit mayhem.
