Avid Pro Tools | Dock Now Shipping

Avid Pro Tools | Dock Now Shipping

The Pro Audio Solutions team at Jigsaw24 welcome the release of the Pro Tools | Dock, the latest addition to the Avid Pro Mixing family.

PT_Dock_Guy-02

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.

Blackmagic Cintel Film Scanner

Cintel Film Scanner
The new Blackmagic Cintel scanner scans negative and positive 35mm film into amazing quality Ultra HD so customers can unlock the extra resolution from 35mm film that no one has been able to see until now. 35mm film is natively 4K so the extra quality is already in the film. This means there is no easier way to generate Ultra HD feature films and television programming for customers to view on their new large screen televisions than scanning filmed entertainment that has already been produced, including classic hits.

Avid S3|Pro Tools Dock 2015

Announced by Avid at AES 2015, the Pro Tools | Dock is a brand new compact, ergonomic, EUCON control surface for integrating the free Pro Tools | Control iPad app. The Dock is based on the advanced touchscreen workflows on the Master Touch Module on the award-winning Pro Tools | S6. Both systems demonstrate the 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. When the Dock is paired with Pro Tools | S3, you gain complementary and enhanced functionality with the dedicated automation switches, transport controls, weighted aluminium jog wheel, colour-coded Soft Key switches, and more. Mixing deadlines have met their match!

Avid Pro Tools | S3 – EUCON for Everyone

Avid Pro Tools | S3 – EUCON for Everyone

The Pro Audio team at Jigsaw24 are major fans of the Avid Pro Tools | S3 Control Surface, the compact, cost effective DAW controller that not only works with Avid Pro Tools, but also any Media Content Creation application that is compatible with the widely available EUCON control protocol.

Avid S3|Pro Tools Dock 2015

The Pro Tools | S3 Control Surface is a streamlined, versatile mixing solution that gives sound engineers the powerful, intelligent control they need to work more ergonomically and efficiently, create the highest-quality mixes, and expand mixing capabilities and job opportunities. When used together, the Pro Tools | S3 and Pro Tools software – deliver the most streamlined, economical, and tightly integrated approach to mixing and recording in smaller-sized studios or mobile settings.

Introducing Avid Pro Tools | S3

The S3 Control Surface is designed to help sound engineers:

– Expand mixing capabilities, and take on a diverse range of projects: Based on the award-winning Avid S6 control surface, the S3 features open integration with Pro Tools Software and other EUCON-enabled digital audio workstations such as Logic Pro, Cubase, and more.

– Meet strict project deadlines: By combining traditional console layout with the proven advancements of the S6, S3 delivers highly intuitive recording, editing, and mixing control—along with the power and efficiency to meet fast turnaround times.

– Mix on-the-go: The compact form factor fits into any space, making S3 ideal for small project studios or on-the-go music and post mixing.

– Work the way they want: Engineers can customise the surface to their unique needs by creating custom channel layouts, all recallable at any time. S3 can switch between two applications with ease, giving users the choice to work however they want, and the capability to take on the largest, most demanding mixes.

– Fit well into any studio and workflow: S3 easily integrates with solutions across the Avid MediaCentral Platform, as well as a studio’s existing systems and workflows to deliver deep hardware software integration and control at a fraction of the price of high-end consoles.

Full hardware controls include:

– 16 channel strips, each with a touch-sensitive, motorised fader and 10-segment signal level meter (supports up to 6 fader banks).

– 32 touch-sensitive, push-button rotary encoders for panning, gain control, plug-in parameter adjustments, and more.

– 32 high-resolution OLED displays for viewing track names/numbers, detailed metering data (from mono to 5.1 surround), parameter names/values, current automation mode, and more.

– Solo, mute, channel select, and record/automation-enable keys on every channel.

– Touch strip provides easy access to transport controls.

– Dozens of dedicated buttons and switches for navigation, automation, control assignment, and software control.

– Built-in 4×6 AVB Core Audio interface includes 2 XLR mic/line inputs, 2 TRS line inputs, 2 XLR line outputs, 2 TRS line outputs, and a stereo headphone output.

EUCON 3.2.2 and Pro Tools | S3 Enhancements:

The latest EUCON improvements and enhancements now include support for Mac OS X 10.10 “Yosemite”. For the Pro Tools | S3, there is now a Soft Key editor that allows users to map their favourite controls and commands onto key areas of the surface. For Pro Tools 12 and higher, the preference for Mix and/or Edit windows to follow surface bank selection is now working—which is the inverse of the existing feature that allows a user to click on a track in Pro Tools and the surface follows. In Pro Tools, go to Pro Tools > Preferences > Mixing to enable the functionality.

Jigsaw24 is proud to be a fully authorised Avid Elite Reseller, the Pro Tools | S3 Control Surface is available to test drive at our Soho demo studios. To find out more, email audio@Jigsaw24.com or give us a call on 03332 409 306.
