  • Mix music projects and sound for picture with greater speed and ease than a mouse. With Artist Mix, you have eight high-quality faders, eight knobs, transport controls, and multiple dedicated switches that provide precision control over your favorite EUCON-enabled audio and video applications. Get fast access to a variety of software functions right from the surface—with excellent visual feedback—all in a compact footprint that fits perfectly between your keyboard and screen. Artist Mix features eight touch-sensitive faders, enabling you to call attention to a track in the software by simply touching a fader. Used in combination with the Bank and Nudge keys, you can navigate large mixes quickly, without clicking through your software. You can also record-enable, mute, solo, and assign tracks right from the surface. In addition, the mute and solo keys do double duty as transport control keys too.

    • 8 touch-sensitive rotary encoders
    • 8 high-resolution OLED displays

    Grab hold of your mix

    Why edit and mix one thing at a time with a keyboard and mouse? Artist Mix greatly accelerates your workflow so you can complete projects faster—without having to click around a software interface. Record-enable, solo, mute, and automate tracks from the surface. Adjust volume levels across multiple tracks simultaneously. Fine-tune compressors, gates, EQ, and more with a twist. You can even punch in and out of recordings by connecting a footswitch.

    Quickly navigate projects

    No matter how large the session, you can easily get to the tracks you need directly from the surface. Bank through fader strips eight at a time. Or use the Nudge key to navigate through tracks one fader strip at a time. The surface also provides full transport controls. Not only do you get the usual suspects—play, stop, record, fast-forward, and rewind—but also RTZ (return to zero), plus previous and next keys to navigate markers.

    Adjust parameters with a twist

    Control everything from panning and gain to plug-ins, EQ settings, and more using the eight press-and-turn knobs. With their touch-sensitivity, you can write automation quickly and intuitively. They&'re also velocity-sensitive, enabling you to quickly sweep from minimum to maximum parameter values in one turn. Or make very precise adjustments by turning the knob slowly. Press the knob tops to instantiate plug-ins, sends, and more.

    Mix with precision

    Get accurate and smooth mixing control through eight motorized, touch-sensitive, 100mm long throw faders. Just touch a fader to select the corresponding track for editing. You can also lock individual tracks to faders and store them as Layouts - up to 48 per project - for easy recall, making mixing large projects a breeze. You can save multiple Layouts to mix groups of tracks, such as drums or backing vocals, or just lock a fader to act as a master fader.

    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.
