EUCON 2020.11 Now Available—What’s New

EUCON 2020.11 is a massive update for Avid’s control surfaces, and introduces many new workflow enhancing features, including Pro Tools Folder Track Spill, PECDIR metering for Film Post, the new Avid Control Desktop App for Avid S1 and S3, and much more.

 

Pro Tools Folder Track Spill (Avid S1, S3, S4, S6, Control App, Artist Mix)

From the touch screen, surface, or Avid Control App, you can now spill out not only VCA Masters, but also Folder Track members. For the S1, S3, Control App and Mix it works the same way as VCA Spill in every way—the S1 even has the S3’s Multi-master Mode. For the S4 and S6 the same applies, spilling members into zones, left or right and even on Attention. In addition, there’s the option of opening and closing the folders in Pro Tools on Spill and UnSpill.

Avid Control Desktop (Avid S1 and S3)

For the new Avid Control Desktop Application, we took the Meters View from the Avid Control iOS/Android app and expanded it, letting you run it on a Windows or OSX workstation—you can even run it on a separate workstation from your DAW. It’s fully scalable in size and can follow from one to four S1 surfaces (8-32 tracks) or one S3 (16 tracks). It can also be mixed and matched with S1’s using a tablet to monitor metering. For example, if you have three S1’s, one could have a tablet meter and the other two could use the Desktop App.

Avid Control Desktop App running in conjunction with Pro Tools

Avid Control Desktop App can be customized to your workflow and desktop layout. You can size it small with just the track name and meter, but then expand it out vertically to add routing, automation, group data, and a multi-use Function Graph. And then at the maximum height, you can display all three graphs at once (Pan/EQ/DYN), and the settings panel offers you numerous other customizations . The new Avid Control Desktop App is free and included in the EUCON Workstation Installers for Windows and OSX.

 

PECDIR Metering (Avid S4 and S6 with Post Modules)

Utilizing the same Display Module hardware already on S4 and S6, you now have the ability of linking them to your PECDIR Post Modules and displaying the tracks from Post Layouts. PECDIR Metering offers you five different views (1, 2, 3 and 4 high, plus large meters), two different color options, and up to 10 wide surround formats. Both an Input (DIR) and an Output/Playback (PEC) meter can be assigned to these Post Layout Tracks. These can be from any track, from any connected Workstation (Pro Tools and MTRX), and up to three Display Modules can be used with three Post Modules.

Red/Green color option

4 Rows View Metering

Normally the PEC meters would come from the Pro Tools Recorder, and there is now a preference to auto populate these. Pro Tools versions 2020.9.1 and later can keep meters on Disk Playback even when switching to Input when connected to a Post Display Module. The DIR meters can come from the Playback Pro Tools or even MTRX.

 

EQ and DYN Cycling (Avid S1, S3, Control App, Artist Mix)

The S4 and S6 have this feature already and now it’s on EuControl Surfaces. Tap the EQ or DYN button and Pro Tools looks at the “EUCON Surfaces EQ DYN cycling Starting at Insert” setting for which slot to start in and displays either that slot or the next one that an EQ/DYN is in. Tap the button again and it moves to the next slot that an EQ or DYN is in. The Graph and the knobs on the surface follow. Keep going and it goes through them all and then back around to the first one.

 

Track Rename (Avid S4, S6, Control App)

You can now rename Pro Tools tracks from both the Avid Control App and S4/S6 Master Module. On Avid Control, double tap a track name anywhere and you will be presented with a keyboard for renaming. Similarly, on the S4/S6 Master Module, double tap the Home Screen’s Track Name to rename it.

 

Auto Bank to Selected Track (Avid Control App)

Now Avid Control can join the surfaces and follow Track selection. Not only is there now a new preference that can sync all screens together so the same tracks are always visible, but if you want the screens to bank independently, you can still sync a single screen by pressing and holding the Screens Tab name at the top.

 

All Controls Track Automation Feedback (Avid S4 and S6 Display Modules, Control App)

Now, on both the Avid Control App and S4/S6 Display Modules, you get visual feedback whenever ANY control on a track goes into Write or Preview mode.

 

Lots of smaller features and bug fixes

As always, EUCON 2020.11 features numerous bug fixes and smaller enhancements, including:

  • Big Sur support (Intel only) for EUCON—note that Pro Tools does not yet support Big Sur (click here for details)
  • EuControl bank by whole surface
  • Save Layouts locally
  • 32 Foldowns on the Monitoring page of Avid Control
  • S4/S6 Workstation Softkeys
  • Title name and save confirmations

EUCON 20.5 Now Available—What’s New

Avid is pleased to announce that the EUCON 20.5 software update is now available for all EUCON control surfaces. This release offers support for the new Pro Tools Folder Tracks, as well as Layout creation directly from the Avid Control app—plus many bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Folder Tracks

Pro Tools 2020 introduced Folder Tracks, which introduces new ways of working in the software and with control surfaces. Folder Tracks can perform a simple organizational function or be part of your session routing infrastructure, and they greatly simplify and speed up control surface operation.

On both Avid S4/S6 and EuControl control surfaces, you now have the option to show not only Hidden Tracks but also Closed Folder Track Members. These can be selected individually when in Banking, Layouts, or Spill mode, giving greater flexibility for different workflows.

Nine new Softkeys offer full control over opening and closing both Parent, Child, and Sibling Folders for the attentioned track. You can also control multiple folder tracks via the Do to All and Do to Selected commands. In addition, the Tracks Screen now has buttons and icons that enable opening and closing Folder Tracks by touch.

S4 and S6 also gain a new Strip command on the CSM/fader module to open and close folders directly from the surface. You can also filter your view using the Type button on the Master Module to view your folder tracks. Stay tuned for additional EUCON Folder Track workflows in the future.

Layouts Assign from Avid Control

Layout creation for surfaces using EuControl just got a lot easier and more flexible in 20.5, and now works similarly to S6. From the Avid Control app you can build layouts quickly, directly from the Tracks Screen. Pressing the Assign button brings up a new set of buttons and track blocks that match the connected physical surfaces (S1, S3, Mix and Control). From here you can assign tracks, blank strips, attention or Auto Assign. An improvement to the previous method of creating Layouts in EuControl, you can now insert and delete tracks, and others will shuffle to make room or close the gap. Convenient Blank All and Clear All buttons make it easy to start a fresh.

Once you’re done assigning tracks, the new Layout can easily be named and stored right from the Avid Control app screen, from which Layout recall is also possible

Availability and installation

EUCON 20.5 is available now available for Avid S4 and S6 with a valid Avid Advantage support contract—just log in to your Avid Account and find the installer link.

For Avid S1, S3, Dock, Control App and other EuControl surfaces, simply log in to your Avid Account to download the new software.

EUCON 2019.5 Now Available — What’s New

We are excited to announce the new EUCON 2019.5 software update for Pro Tools | S6, S3, Dock, Control App and Artist Series controllers. EUCON 2019.5 delivers tighter mixing workflows with Pro Tools, brings advanced monitoring capabilities to the Pro Tools | Control App, and provides S6 users with integrated support for KVM and control systems. The EUCON 2019.5 update also fixes over 50 bugs since the last release.

Tighter Integration with Pro Tools

Let’s take a closer look at some of the new capabilities that EUCON 2019.5 offers to enable much faster mixing workflows when working with Pro Tools—note that these features require the new Pro Tools 2019.5 software update to be installed:

“Scroll to Track” and “Scroll into View”

The much-requested ICON features, “Scroll to Track” and “Scroll into View”, now work on EUCON control surfaces. These features makes it easy to scroll Pro Tools windows and bank your control surface accordingly to get to the tracks you need faster. With “Scroll to Track, you can quickly search for and scroll to a track by typing the first few letters of the track’s name. With Scroll into View, you can quickly scroll a track into view by clicking on the track name.

Scroll Into View: Shift-Ctrl while clicking on track in Pro Tools banks the controller to show you that track on a fader

Scroll to Track: By either using a keyboard shortcut or a EUCON Softkey, you can quickly search for a track in your Pro Tools session and have the controller bank to the corresponding track

Pan and Send Auto-Open/Close

In addition to the current feature to automatically open plugin windows when working on the surface, you now also have the option to open Pan and Send windows. These can be set to open from an Attention, a Function button press, or even a knob touch.

Quickly set what windows in Pro Tools will open when the corresponding knobs are touched

Intelligent Attentioning

We have updated the old “Attention On Select” method with a much more versatile system that provides you with seven options that control what causes the surface to Attention.

This integration between EUCON and Pro Tools gives you much greater control to customize what areas of the Pro Tools environment will attention a track and place it on the control surface.

Once Attentioned, the S6 surface can also focus the clicked-on plugin, pan or send controls and display them on either the Master Module or any of the Attention Expand Modules. For example, if you select “Name” to be actionable, you can click on any track name in your DAW and the controller will automatically attention that same track on its surface. This allows you to choose which S6 modules get populated on Attention with the plugin, send or pan parameters you need displayed.

From delivering ICON-favorite workflows to introducing entirely new ways of accessing and managing your mixing environment, this new level of integration between Pro Tools and Avid control surfaces delivers a faster and tighter experience than ever before.

On S6, you can even set your preferences as to how the corresponding Pro Tools parameters are mapped to the control surface

Full S6-Style Monitoring for the Pro Tools | Control App

You are now able to control Pro Tools | MTRX and XMON hardware via EUCON, as well as the monitoring sections in Pro Tools, Nuendo, Cubase, and Pyramix. This brings the operational efficiency of S6 to Avid’s other EUCON controllers with Source and Speaker select, Folddown, Cue and Talkback control (including footswitch).

New Pro Tools | Control Monitor View

Additional Enhancements

EUCON 2019.5 also introduces S6-style momentary faders values that allow you to determine what information gets displayed on the fader OLEDs, and a new preference to turn off the fader motors if needed. The release adds Ethernet control support for Thinklogical KVM matrix switches to S6, along with dual monitor switching, and source and destination naming for Thinklogical and IHSE KVM solutions. S6 users now also have GPIO Fader Start and Softkey Control, enabling them to trigger Softkeys from GPIs and activate GPOs from Softkeys, as well as assign one or more faders to GPIs for external fader control.

New S6 Workflows Video Series

Check out the new Avid Pro Tools | S6 Workflows for in-depth explorations of how to use Layouts, Spill Zones, Expand Zones, and much more.

Availability and installation

EUCON 2019.5 is available now for download. To install the EUCON 2019.5 software update on S6, your console needs to be on a current Avid Support Plan. Your console came with 1 year of Avid Advantage ExpertPlus support with Hardware Coverage so please check your support plan expiration date. There are several options for renewing coverage (even if your plan has recently expired). If you are a registered owner, you will receive an email with details, or you can contact Avid directly to hear about your options at: +1-650-218-4058

For Pro Tools | S3, Dock, and Control App customers, simply log in to your Avid Account to download the new software.

For Artist Series controllers, log in to your My Artist Series Account  to download the new software.

Please note that the new Pro Tools-specific features (including “Scroll to Track” and “Scroll into View”, Intelligent Attentioning, Pan and Send Auto-Open/Close) require that you also install the new Pro Tools 2019.5 software update.

Demystifying The Film Mix — An Audio Tour Across India

Creating a soundscape that transports a film audience to wherever you want them to go is truly an art. Get it right, and they’re right in the middle of the story with the protagonists. Get it wrong, and the magic is lost.

Avid’s professional audio solutions help the world’s leading film mixers to harness their creativity and produce inspiring audio tracks – and we’re pleased to invite you to some upcoming workshops across India, in conjunction with Ansanta, our audio partner, to share some top tips on how to create amazing soundtracks with Avid’s award winning control surfaces and DAWs.

Its little brother Pro Tools | S3 is a smaller, portable control surface that delivers intelligent control over every aspect of Pro Tools and other DAWs. While it’s ideal for space-confined and on-the-go mixing, it packs enormous power to handle large sessions and turn around projects faster. Plus, it can be paired with Pro Tools | Dock for intelligent studio control and timesaving touch workflows.

 

Pro Tools 12.6 delivers powerful new editing capabilities that give audio professionals even more control over their editing workflow and enables faster and more fluid mixing, while new standalone purchasing options for Pro Tools | HD Native and HDX systems make these premium solutions more flexible and affordable than ever before.

A Look Back at PALM Expo India 2016

What a show PALM Expo India 2016 was! The leading stage light and sound, AV install and music production expo ran from May 26 -28 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, with plenty of exciting technology for the thousands of visitors to see, hear and play with.

We exhibited with our longstanding regional partner Ansata Computer Systems, showing a wide range of our professional audio solutions that were enthusiastically received throughout the show.

Visitors were particularly impressed with the Avid VENUE | S6L 24D live mixing system, with a steady stream of people across all three days enjoying demos every hour. The reception of the console was fantastic, and Ansata already has received several orders following the show.

We also had a great reaction to the Avid Pro Tools | S3 control surface with the Avid Pro Tools | DOCK that enables users to integrate the free iPad app, Avid Pro Tools | Control. Pro Tools DOCK can be paired with the Pro Tools | S3 to provide enhanced functionality.

Many of the musicians that visited the stand loved the combination of the Pro Tools | S3 and the Dock, including the acclaimed percussionist Sivamani, who commented, “Pro Tools | Dock shortens the distance between my mind and my hand. Awesome!” Vijay Dayal, sound engineer at YRF Studios in Mumbai, thought that the new Pro Tools | Dock “is absolutely brilliant and super innovative. A huge time saver!” Meanwhile, Pramod Chandorkar, sound engineer and founder of SIA (Soundideaz Academy), said, “It will help me focus on the creative process — absolutely brilliant!”

We also gave live demonstrations of Avid Pro Tools | HD Native Thunderbolt OMNI system, which is widely regarded as the most powerful native DAW in the market, and Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools, which enables audio professionals to compose, record, edit and mix from anywhere in the world. This really caused some excitement, with standing-room-only demonstrations throughout the show.

All in all, PALM Expo India 2016 was a huge success and a very enjoyable show. We’re already looking forward to next year!

Avid at PALM Expo India 2016—The Best Sound Around

Avid will be bringing its latest industry-leading professional audio solutions to PALM Expo India 2016, the leading stage light and sound, AV install and music production expo running from May 26 -28 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, India. We will be exhibiting with our regional partner Ansata Computer Systems in Hall 1 on Booth F39 and G39.

Visitors to the booth will be able to see live demonstrations of Avid Pro Tools | HD Native Thunderbolt OMNI system, which is widely regarded as the most powerful native DAW in the market. With ultra-fast I/O handling for almost zero latency performance, this system works as an ever-growing ecosystem for third party plug-ins and professional toolsets for demanding workflows in music creation and post production for films and television. Avid will also present the Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools, which enables audio professionals to compose, record, edit, and mix from anywhere in the world.

In addition, we will showcase the streamlined and versatile Avid Pro Tools | S3 control surface, and the Avid Pro Tools | Dock that enables users to integrate the free iPad app, Avid Pro Tools | Control. Pro Tools DOCK can also be paired with the Pro Tools | S3 to provide enhanced functionality.

For those interested in the best live sound solutions available, the stand will also present demonstrations of the acclaimed Avid VENUE | S6L 24D, the next-generation live mixing system that delivers unprecedented processing capabilities and pristine sound quality. The Avid VENUE | S3L-X will also be on display, delivering all the power and efficiency of VENUE in an ultra-compact system, and the Avid VENUE | SC48 all-in-one live sound console.
