Complete Surround Control
The Surround Panner ES Option features a single touch-sensitive joystick, five rotary knobs, and nine switches, giving you complete control of your system’s surround channels including pan, divergence, volume, mute, LFE, and center percentage. And because the joystick is touch-sensitive, you gain great efficiency benefits whenever you’re writing surround automation.
In addition, you can use various panner controls to navigate to adjacent tracks and Main/Send output assignments, “punch” into existing automation sequences, and open and close the Pro Tools panner window. And with the included 5-meter combo power and MIDI cable, you can use the Surround Panner while you monitor your mix in an optimal location in your studio — anywhere up to almost 16-1/2 feet away from your MIDI interface.
Although the Surround Panner ES Option for Pro Tools was designed to match and be used with the ICON D-Command ES console, you can use it with other Avid control surfaces, including C|24, 003 Factory, and Command|8, and with Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools LE* systems for your surround control needs.
* Pro Tools LE use requires the Complete Production Toolkit software option for up to 7.1 surround capabilities.
