Product highlights

  • Navigate projects fast
  • Edit with ease
  • Get great visual feedback
  • Work with what you want
  • Artist Transport makes it easy to get to where you need to be. Shuttle quickly or slowly through sequences using the spring-loaded Shuttle Ring to find the section you need. Locate the precise frame you want to work with using the weighted Jog Wheel. Control audio and video playback with programmable transport controls. You can even jump to a marker or timecode position instantly by entering a value on the numeric keypad.

  • Because most controls on Artist Transport are customizable, you can tailor the surface to accelerate your workflow. Trigger keyboard shortcuts, macro commands, and more with six programmable Soft Keys. Program the transport keys to do double duty as additional Soft Keys. And assign the Jog Wheel and Shuttle Ring to perform such actions as zooming horizontally or vertically, editing clips, adjusting pans and plug-in parameters, and more.

  • With a built-in display and color-coded keys, you can instantly view project information, settings, and the status of your controls at hand. View timecode, parameter names, parameter values, and more on the high-resolution OLED display. And note the status or current function of any Soft Key or transport key indicated by a yellow, red, or green LED, which you can also customize for your color preference.

  • You have a lot of choices when it comes to the tools you use to create music, sound for picture, or videos. So why not use a control surface that respects the choices you make? All Artist Series control surfaces do. That’s because they feature EUCON, a high-speed Ethernet-based technology that enables the hardware to communicate directly with any EUCON-enabled application—and vice-versa. And because they’re application-aware, you can switch from a Pro Tools project to Cubase, Media Composer, Premiere Pro, and other audio and video software in seconds.
