Euphonix Inc. has announced the integration of its EuCon™ control protocol into MOTU’s Digital Performer 6, which allows Euphonix’ Artist Series media controllers to control that DAW. From high-resolution fader and plug-in control to advanced programming features, Euphonix’ MC Control and MC Mix offer Digital Performer users seamless, tactile control over almost all major DAW functions.
Unique features that Euphonix media controllers bring to Digital Performer 6 include: pre-programmed Soft Keys that provide instant access to most top-level Digital Performer functions; a Soft Key Editor for creating custom Soft Keys for any additional Digital Performer function or macro commands; data entry wheel to jog, shuttle, zoom horizontally, and zoom vertically; the ability to flip any editable parameters from the rotary encoders to the faders; touch-sensitive, high-resolution rotary encoders and motorized faders; the ability to edit plug-ins, EQs, dynamics, inputs, aux sends and mix destinations directly from the surface; a Direct Assign feature that locks any fader to any track in Digital Performer; the ability to create and save up to 48 fader configurations as Layouts that saves with project file; toggle-automation modes for each channel; the ability to bring up the Mixing Board directly from the surface; and up to nine character track and parameter names.
“We are proud to have MOTU support our EuCon protocol natively in their flagship product,” states Euphonix CEO Martin Kloiber. “Providing such tight, integrated, hands-on control of Digital Performer gives users with an unmatched editing and mixing experience similar to working on a large, professional console.”
“Digital Performer 6 delivers a state-of-the-art audio workstation experience,” said Jim Cooper, director of marketing for MOTU. “Now, DP6 users can gain unprecedented hands-on control of their creative endeavors with the sleek and stylish Artist Series media controllers from Euphonix. When using MC Control and MC Mix to control Digital Performer, users can enjoy the sublime tactile experience of large format mixing consoles while at work in their personal desktop MOTU studio.”
