Avid's new Pro Tools | Dock control surface is paired with an Avid Pro Tools | S3 control surface.
At the recently completed 139th AES Convention in New York City, Avid introduced Pro Tools | Dock (price TBA), a portable control surface. Working together with an iPad running the free Pro Tools | Control app, it gives users the access, integration, and precision needed to edit and mix projects at a faster pace.
Powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Pro Tools | Dock is based on the advanced touchscreen workflows of the Pro Tools | S6 and the hybrid touchscreen/hardware control of the Avid Artist | Control surface. Users can navigate large projects quickly and, via the iPad touchscreen, gain instant access to any track.
With Pro Tools | Dock, users can work with EUCON-enabled DAWs and video editing tools, including Pro Tools, Media Composer, Logic Pro X, Cubase, and Premiere Pro. When paired with Pro Tools | S3, users gain new timesaving touch workflows and custom control, making it ideal for mixing music and post projects in smaller spaces and on smaller budgets.
Avid states that Pro Tools | Dock will be available in Q1 2016.
