Take Command of Your DAW with This Compact Controller!The Avid Artist Control v2 control surface combines the functionality of motorized faders, programmable knobs and buttons, and an incredible customizable touchscreen interface for maximum control over your DAW. Designed as a compact "nerve center" for your studio, the Artist Control v2 fits between your keyboard and computer monitor. Its high-resolution touchscreen lets you easily access and set up functions, while four touch-sensitive motorized faders, 12 Smart Keys, and eight programmable rotary encoders make the Artist Control v2 a powerful, flexible DAW controller!
The Avid Artist Control v2's high-resolution 800 x 480-pixel touchscreen interface displays all of your project's top-level information, including track names/numbers, metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), fader/pan values, automation mode, etc. It also lets you quickly access all plug-in and EQ parameters, effortlessly setup macro commands for any function (or sequence of functions), and much more.
What's more, you can use the Artist Control v2's Smart Keys to trigger everything from simple keystroke commands to complex custom macros displayed on the touchscreen interface above - use the up/down arrows to scroll through an unlimited number of commands. Touch-sensitive rotary encoders offer direct control over everything from panning and gain, to editing your most powerful plug-ins and EQ. These knobs can also be pressed to select/deselect and navigate through parameters. High-quality ALPS 100mm long-throw faders offer accurate and smooth mixing; touching a fader will automatically select the corresponding track.
Take advantage of the included Studio Monitor Express software. It provides professional monitoring (from stereo up to 5.1 surround) as well as complete talkback controls via any CoreAudio-compliant interface. Application Change and Workstation Change functions let you easily cycle through applications and switch between multiple workstations.
The Artist Control v2's ergonomic layout puts transport controls and a data-entry wheel at your fingertips, as well as keys to quickly select what parameter the wheel will modify (zoom horizontally/vertically, jog/shuttle, trimming clip head and tail, setting clip gain, crossfading, and more).

Total Contol... Wow!!!
by Jerry Grider from IndianaI really did my research on the Artist Control before I made my purchase. This by far is the most intuitive controller to date in this price range. I was actually going to spend a lot more money on ... read more [+]another product, but this one caught my eye. I demo's it, and fell in love. I use Protools and Logic extensively. I really needed to step up from my aging Mackie Controls and this was the perfect controller. I have access to everything...I mean everything. It's all at your fingertips so to speak. The touch screen is really like having another computer monitor dedicated to the access of shortcuts. It's quite remarkable. I am stubborn and hard to please when it comes to equipment, but the Artist control is amazing. It's smooth and the resonse is great. It took a bit of getting used to the Jog/Shuttle and playback control, but only because I was used to the Mackie. I am adding 4 Artist mix controllers to this and I will be set. This will be my new controller. I've read so/so reviews, but my experience with the Artis control has been without any problems. The setup took me 10 minutes. That's it and I was mixing a project. It was easy to navigate the controller too. It's very well constructed and a lot of thought went into it's creation. close [-]
