Euphonix in Mountain View, Calif., has announced native support for its Artist Series media controllers in Apple’s new Final Cut Studio. Apple has integrated Euphonix’ EuCon Ethernet control protocol into its flagship video suite, providing Artist Series users with hands-on control over Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Color and other applications in Final Cut Studio.
Comprised of MC Control, MC Mix, MC Transport (available in August 2009) and MC Color (available in fall 2009), the Euphonix family of Artist Series media controllers offers programmable soft keys, wheels, knobs, faders, trackballs and more, which are designed to speed up and enhance workflow in Final Cut Studio. Featuring portable, slim-line designs, each media controller connects to a Mac via Ethernet and can be used either stand-alone or connected to additional controllers to create a larger, integrated control surface; up to one MC Transport, one MC Control, one MC Color and four MC Mixes can be connected.
Artist Series Media Controllers feature EuCon, a high-speed Ethernet control protocol developed by Euphonix that enables simultaneous control of multiple applications like Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Color, Motion, Logic Pro and more. All controls, displays and programmable soft keys automatically switch to match the application in focus, and everything from transitions and titles to effects favorites can easily be assigned to these soft keys. EuCon also enables users to switch between and control multiple Macs on a network, automatically forwarding media controller, keyboard and mouse commands to control the second workstation.
Euphonix has worked closely with the world’s leading software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU and others to deeply integrate native EuCon support into their media applications to provide high-resolution, high-speed control over almost all software functions for an unmatched editing and mixing experience. EuCon also supports the HUI and Mackie Control protocols for even greater flexibility, offering control of applications such as Pro Tools at a faster speed and higher resolution than any other controller.
