    Lamont Lively

    i thought i didn't need this anymore at one point because i could create my own shortcuts within STUDIO ONE. my cousin told me i had lost my mind. I gave it another shot once i received my Artist mix. i thought that when banking it would bank 12 and skip four but it actually banks 8 at a time . I have templates for sessions, but not every template works for every situation, so i created a macro that says Verse which creates and labels that track verse. A macro that says Hook track or 4 hook Stacks or adlib etc.... i'm waiting for Studio One to allow me to press enter to select a plug in or instrument so i can create a macros that open whatever plug in i need. It cuts down so much time from studio sessions. I can work on a mix while someone else uses the mouse to compose or even edit plugins. All of this with only the HUI MODE in STudio one. Eucon makes using PRO TOOLS or LOGIC a breeze even for those they may not be well versed in either.

    The Epitome of affordable control surfaces

    I research this control surface for a while, after owning a Mackie Control Universal. Not even close this unit blows Mackie out the water and when used with Pro Tools 10, it takes control to the next level.
