Navigate sessions more easily
When using S3 with Pro Tools, the surface now fully supports ICON-favorite “Scroll to Track” and “Scroll into View” features, making it easy to scroll Pro Tools windows and bank your control surface accordingly to get to the tracks you need faster. And with the latest EUCON software, you can open and close Pro Tools Folder Tracks right from the surface, greatly speeding up session navigation.
Work faster and more flexibly
You can also now set Plug-in, Pan, and Send windows to open and close automatically whenever you select them for editing to speed things along. You can also suspend all faders from following automation, view fader values in track name displays for a custom length of time, and enable/disable all plugin automation with a surface shortcut. And when using S3 with Avid Dock and/or Avid Control, you can take full control of any EUCON-based monitoring system, including Pro Tools | MTRX, XMON, D-MON, and monitor sources in your DAW.
Bring S3 to your attention
Set how S3 reacts to actions you perform in your DAW. Simply select the behaviors and DAW areas you’d like to engage to attention in your EUCON General settings. For example, if you select “Name” to be actionable, you can click on any track name in your DAW and S3 will automatically attention that same track on its surface. Or select “Fader” and whenever you click on a fader in your software, S3 will automatically put that fader into focus.
Spill VCAs on the S3 surface
Using the Avid Control app or Avid Dock with your S3? Tap on any VCA master in the Avid Control app and its slaves will spill directly onto your S3 surface for easy access and control. When finished, simply retap the VCA master to "unspill" the tracks.
