One of the most useful tools on my desk
Whether you're recording, editing or mixing, this transport controller is one of the most useful tools I can imagine. Combined with its affordable cost, it's a no brainer. It's a game changer. I don't claim to be an authority on the all the competitive options, but considering that this works pretty close to perfectly out-of-the-box (with my DAW's, including Logic Pro X and Cubase 7.5 with info available to configure to others), and allows for customization it's hard to imagine a setup it won't work with. (but you'll want to check about yours)
As the other Artist Series products, the Transport interfaces with your computer via EUCON Network Protocol, which is fast and smooth. You can adjust the way your software responds via the EUCON preference panel. My sense is that its resolution is pretty amazing.
I'm using this with two Artist Mix "fader" strips, and between them I've found mixing to be organic and enjoyable. But the Transport has uses beyond in editing and ben recording. The Jog and Shuttle wheels are now indispensable to my process. The unit works with most DAWS immediately, and offers Soft Buttons and customizations that are pretty easily accomplished. EUCON is a brilliant concept, and works better than very well in practice.
Highly recommended - sorry for any typos.
