Control surface features
Grab hold of your mix
Why navigate through projects one click at a time? Artist Transport greatly accelerates your workflow so you can complete projects faster—and minimize clicking. Intelligently navigate through projects with a flick of the wrist. Get full playback controls at your fingertips. And trim clip heads and tails, set clip gain, crossfade clips, adjust plug-in parameters, and more by simply assigning or programming the controls to do what you want.
Get precision control
Get the responsiveness and feel of a high-end console data wheel and transport control in a portable, affordable controller. From navigation to fine editing, the weighted, optically encoded Jog Wheel delivers the fluidity and precision you need to stop on a frame. And with the Soft Keys, you can assign functions to the Jog Wheel on the fly or perform shortcuts and macros, accelerating the editorial process while minimizing human error.
Trigger custom actions
With six dedicated Soft Keys, you can instantly perform application functions, keystroke shortcuts, and macro commands to speed up your workflow. Effortlessly navigate application menus and more, all without your hands ever leaving the controller. And when you use the Shift key together with any of these six Soft Keys—as well as with any of the transport and numeric keys—you gain another 29 possible Soft Keys that you can program to gain fast access to your most frequently used functions.
Enter data quickly
Using the integrated numeric keypad, you can instantly jump to time code or marker locations, as well as edit parameters, by simply entering numbers. You can also have all of the 16 keys in the numeric keypad do double duty as programmable Soft Keys when you use them with the Shift key. And if you need a quick reminder of what function is assigned to a Soft Key, just press the Show key in the numeric keypad (the eye icon) to display the function.
Create a custom surface
All Artist Series controllers are modular, so you can combine them together into a single slimline surface to suit your workflow. Connect up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color in any order for a total of up to 36 faders. Or use them separately, as each controller has its own Ethernet connection.
