Avid MachineControl
Special Order

Get More Productive with Your Pro Tools!

With Pro Tools 5.1 and higher software, MachineControl allows you to remotely control Pro Tools from external controllers via industry-standard Sony 9-pin commands. Both music and post-production studios benefit from the ability of Pro Tools to emulate a remote deck.

MachineControl allows for scrubbing of audio and video simultaneously from within Pro Tools. Check your audio and picture sync quickly and efficiently using the scrub-to-picture feature of MachineControl.

The transport window provides enhanced feedback for the various control modes, including displaying the difference between Shuttle mode and true Rewind or Fast Forward modes. With Transport-machine mode, the Pro Tools positional cursor will follow the machine's time in Fast Forward or Rewind, showing you the relationship between the external deck's time code and the session.

MachineControl also provides intelligent logic that will tell Pro Tools if a machine's local/remote mode has been changed from its front panel, eliminating communication problems that may otherwise occur.

MachineControl also offers track arming with insert and assemble recording. MachineControl auto-detects many commonly used transports and presents the appropriate track configuration to the user for intuitive, integrated laybacks to master tapes. When used with Pro Tools 5.0 or newer software, MachineControl supports serial time code as a positional reference and features faster lockup times to Sony 9-pin.

With Pro Tools 5.1 and newer software, MachineControl also allows you to slave Pro Tools to a Sony 9-pin compatible device for the trigger of playback, recording, and track arming from a remote machine, providing even more ways to integrate Pro Tools into your studio setup.

Digidesign MachineControl Features:

  • Sony 9-pin and VideoMedia V-LAN protocols supported

  • Scrub to picture
  • Supports compatible non-linear video recorders/players
  • Control your audio or video machine's transport operations within the Pro Tools environment: jog shuttle, fast forward, rewind, etc.
  • Pro Tools on-screen cursor and transport counter to keep you informed of the machine's position at all times
  • Improved status indication in the transport window provides user feedback for the various control modes
  • Slaving of Pro Tools to external controllers via 9-pin Remote Mode*
  • Compatible with Mac OS- and Windows-based Pro Tools systems

* 9-pin Remote Mode requires Pro Tools TDM systems running 5.1 or newer software
