The Pro Tools | Dock is a compact, ergonomic, EUCON control surface designed to integrate with the free Pro Tools | Control iPad app, and based on the advanced touchscreen workflows on the Master Touch Module of the award-winning Pro Tools | S6. This system demonstrates Avid’s philosophy that mixers need the best of physical faders, knobs and switches in conjunction with touchscreen technology for things like fast navigation, metering, and on-screen plug-in control – a true hybrid approach. It’s equally adept at editorial and mixing workflow enhancement. And, when the Dock is paired with Pro Tools | S3, you gain complementary and enhanced functionality with the dedicated automation switches, transport controls, weighted aluminum jog wheel, colour-coded Soft Key switches and more…

The image below of the iPad screen shows you the key concept of a ‘super’ Channel view. The Dock’s eight soft knobs can be used to control parameters like EQ, Dynamics, Panning and Sends on the Attentioned (focused) channel – just like the S6 Master Touch Module.  This new ‘super’ Channel view on Pro Tools | Control is also now available in the free iOS app! A better view of the cool, new expanded Channel view can be seen below:

A highly requested enhancement, that will also be free to all  Pro Tools | Control App users, is the colour-mapped Soft Keys larger view, (pictured below connected to the Dock). The two rows of LED colour-coded buttons on the Dock change colours and map to the Soft Keys in the smaller view on your iPad lining up directly underneath the matching soft button on-screen.

The iPad and Pro Tools | Control app are also now qualified to work as a wired direct connection to your Ethernet network with two adapters from Apple (the wired Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter + USB 2 to Ethernet Adapter) for connection of an Ethernet cable.
