A Compact, Elegant, and Effective DAW Control Surface!The Avid Artist Mix control surface puts eight motorized faders and an array of programmable buttons and knobs at your command for maximum control over your DAW in a small footprint. Avid put some of the coolest features from its impressive full-sized consoles into the Artist Mix, including touch-sensitive, responsive faders and multi-function rotary encoders. This well-designed box is ultra-functional, while sporting a decidedly uncluttered appearance. Now you can get the most out of your DAW with the compact, versatile Artist Mix!
The Artist Mix's rotary encoders give you direct control over everything from panning and gain, to editing your most powerful plug-ins and EQ. These knobs and keys can also be pressed to select/deselect and navigate through parameters. Knob set selector keys allow you to quickly assign the rotary encoders to control plug-ins, EQs, panning, signal routing, and much more. You can either control the same parameter across all tracks, or assign all knobs to one track for easy editing of multiple parameters at once.
High-quality ALPS 100mm long throw faders offer accurate and smooth mixing; touching a fader will automatically select the corresponding track. Avid consoles are renowned for their quality components and smooth operation, and now the Artist Mix gives you that "feel" in an affordable, compact unit!
High-resolution 128 x 64 pixel OLED display provides track name/number, detailed metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), parameter name/value currently being modified by its corresponding rotary encoder, current automation mode, and more.
The MC Control and Artist Mix feature EuCon, a high-speed control protocol developed by Avid that enables simultaneous control of multiple applications and even workstations over an Ethernet cable at 250 times the speed and eight times the resolution of MIDI. EuCon automatically detects whatever application is in the foreground and instantly sets the high-resolution touchscreen and displays, and motorized faders and arsenal of controls to match.

Really great once setup!
by Daniel fromThis unit is really good once you get Eucon setup and working right. I was worried that Avid dropped support for Artist Series with no updates in over two years but they just released a new bug fix up... read more [+]date recently and have also announced that they are coming out with an all new update of Eucon that will add even more features and improvements to the Artist Mix series. With that said, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and I feel much better now with the multiple controllers I have purchased. close [-]

Exactly What I Needed!
by Bennett from Berkeley, CAI am a sound arts student and I spend many hours a day at my desk turning knobs and fader and other parameters with my mouse. My workflow was slow and using a mouse all day was time consuming and exh... read more [+]austing. I purchased the Avid Artist Mix in december and have loved every minute of using it. I use it along with Logic Pro and it works in perfect unison with the DAW. I love mixing now, it feels as if I am on a bigger board console and really improves my workflow. The motorized faders work amazingly well and are quite fun to watch when you have many automations on tracks. I highly recommend this product for anyone who wants to make using a DAW more fun and productive. close [-]

After spending the last few years mixing with large boards like the Avid C24 and the Allen & Heath GL2400, it's been frustrating to go home and mix with a trackpad. If you're like me and are starting a home or project studio of your own, you may not have a great deal of space or money to start with. Still wanting to use a control surface that offers many of these larger board's features, I decided to try the Avid Artist Mix. I was surprised that it let me control almost any function in Pro Tools! The EUCON protocol, accessed via ethernet, is fast and efficient. This device is particularly appealing for those of us who may want to start small, but keep the option open to expand in the future. Multiple Artist series modules can be connected to give me up to 36 channels if I want. Plus, I can either use them all seperately or as one complete unit. I also like the controls themselves. They have a professional look and feel about them. The Artist Mix offers the functionality of the larger consoles I'm used to, but packaged in a unit that is smaller and less expensive.
