It gives you quick access to virtually every feature in the software and features a graphical custom function keyboard. The keys automatically change based on the current task, putting the controls you need right under your fingertips when you need them so you can work faster!

The Fairlight Audio Editor features a large 12 inch high resolution LCD with soft buttons and knobs. It’s an interactive audio editing dashboard with 5 different layouts, giving you a full graphical interface for EQ, dynamics, plug-ins and other tasks. The screen automatically changes to show you the information, tools and controls you need for the current activity. This lets you work quickly because you don’t have to grab the mouse, look up at the computer display and stop what you’re doing! For example, when adjusting EQ, you’ll see the parametric equalizer curve on the display. You can use the knobs to adjust the gain in different frequency ranges and see instant feedback as the curve changes.
Clip EQ layout gives you total control over the 4-band parametric equalizer parameters for the selected clip. This gives you all the same EQ controls that are available in the inspector in DaVinci Resolve, along with clip EQ preset options.
Standard mixing layout displays information for the currently selected track. This includes level, pan, meters, the 6-band parametric track EQ, dynamics and more. The soft buttons and knobs give you quick access to common controls.
Displays controls for the first plug-in on the selected track. This screen has a 3 page layout giving you access to plug-in bypass and reset, loading and saving of presets, and for mapping plug-in parameters to any of the six rotary knobs.
When viewing the aux layout, you’ll see all of the send levels and panning for up to 24 auxiliary channels all at the same time. The soft buttons along the top of the screen let you enable different aux channels for the active tracks.
The monitoring mode layout provides visual feedback for the dim and fixed levels, along with control room, loudness and studio meters. It also displays a graphical representation of the speaker configuration for your listening environment.

Navigation keys and the search dial let you quickly move around the timeline, record, search, playback at variable speeds, set locators to jump to a new position and more. They can also be used to zoom, adjust levels, shape fades and trim edits.
