Accelerate your mix

Mix music projects and sound for picture with greater speed and ease than a mouse. With Artist Mix, you have eight high-quality faders, eight knobs, transport controls, and multiple dedicated switches that provide precision control over your favorite EUCON-enabled audio and video applications. Get fast access to a variety of software functions right from the surface—with excellent visual feedback—all in a compact footprint that fits perfectly between your keyboard and screen. Plus, it pairs perfectly with Avid Dock and the Avid Control app to extend your workflow further. 

Avid S1 is now available—Get the hands-on precision of a tactile controller combined with the touchscreen workflows of Avid Control in a new slimline control surface that delivers unparalleled mixing speed and visual feedback.

Select tracks with a touch

Artist Mix features eight touch-sensitive faders, enabling you to call attention to a track in the software by simply touching a fader. Used in combination with the Bank and Nudge keys, you can navigate large mixes quickly, without clicking through your software. You can also record-enable, mute, solo, and assign tracks right from the surface. In addition, the mute and solo keys do double duty as transport control keys too.

Control plugins, EQ, and more

The eight touch-sensitive knobs at the top of the surface can be used to control multiple functions. In normal mode, use the knobs to pan tracks. In channel mode, the knobs can be used to adjust individual parameters for plugins, EQ, dynamics, aux sends, VCA groups, and more. You can even flip control from the knobs to the faders, providing an alternative way of adjusting parameters for things like a graphic EQ.

Get detailed feedback

View track information, status, and feedback for each fader strip through eight OLED screens. Each display shows the track’s name and name of the parameter currently assigned to the knob, along with a graphical display of the parameter setting. Plus, you can view meters (clip, peak, and normal) for mono, stereo, or surround tracks, as well as the track’s automation mode.

Features
Bring Artist Mix to your attention

With the latest EUCON software, you can now set how Artist Mix 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 Artist Mix will automatically attention that same track on its surface. Or select “Fader” and whenever you click on a fader in your software, Artist Mix will automatically put that fader into focus.

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 Artist Mix 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.

Navigate sessions more easily

When using Artist Mix 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. With Scroll to Track, you can quickly search for and scroll to a track by typing the first few letters of the track’s name. With Scroll into View, you can quickly scroll a track into view by clicking on the track name.

Spill VCAs on the surface

Using the Avid Control iPad app or Avid Dock with your Artist Mix? Simply tap on any VCA master in the Avid Control app and its slaves will spill directly onto your Artist Mix surface for easy access and control. When finished, simply retap the VCA master to “unspill” the tracks.
