Create custom knob layouts—NEW

Custom knobs small

With the latest EUCON update, you can now map the controls of an inserted plugin to your surface—for any plugin, from any EUCON-enabled DAW. This makes it easy to create custom knob layouts for all of your favorite plugins, so you always have your favorite parameters at your fingertips exactly where you want them. You can also map layouts that target different areas of your surface, giving you more flexibility. Even the default EQ and DYN function maps can be rearranged.

Speed up your workflow

Folder tracks in PT UI

Not only can you spill out VCA Masters, you can also open, close, and spill out Folder Tracks directly from your S4 surface—in exactly the same way as VCA Spill—enabling you to get to any track fast. And rename Pro Tools tracks by simply double-tapping on the Home screen's track name in the Master Module.

View PEC/DIR metering on your displays

Working with Post Modules and Display Modules? You can now link them together, enabling you to view tracks from post layouts in five different metering views, two different color options, and up to 10 wide surround formats. Both input and output meters from any track, from any workstation, can be assigned to these post layout tracks.
