The Avid Artist Transport Media Controller, a compact media controller that offers professional, hands-on control and navigation of all your favorite audio and video applications.

Avid Artist Transport Media Controller Details

Experience a new level of control with Avid Artist Transport Media Controllerâ?"a compact media controller that enables you to quickly navigate and edit projects with just one hand. Get the features and tactile feel of a high-end console transport section in a more affordable, portable solution thatâ??s ideal for laptop useâ?"and the perfect add-on to Artist Mix and Artist Color.

From the weighted data wheel and spring-loaded shuttle ring to the ergonomic transport controls and numeric keypad, Artist Transport puts ultra-precise control right at your fingertips. You can even use the Soft Keys to reassign data wheel functions on the fly, making it easy to switch from navigation and editing to writing automation or tweaking plug-ins.

Artist Transport features EUCON (Extended User Control), a high-speed open control protocol that has been adopted by many of the world's leading software developers. Pro Tools, Media Composer, Apple Logic, Apple Final Cut Pro, Autodesk Smoke for Mac, Steinberg Cubase, and many other applications support EUCON, giving you highly responsive control over almost all software functions. You gain a tightly connected experience in which the control surface acts and feels like a physical extension of your software.

From navigation to fine editing, the weighted, optically encoded data wheel puts a host of functionality at your fingertips with the responsiveness and feel of a high-end console data wheel. Navigate your timeline, edit clips, and tweak parameters with precision. Use the Soft Keys to assign various functions to the data wheel on the fly. And perform everything from basic jogging to zooming horizontally or vertically, trimming clip heads and tails, setting clip gain, crossfading clips, and more.

Effortlessly shuttle through your timeline using the optically encoded, spring-loaded shuttle ring. The rubberized surface provides excellent tactile control, and like the data wheel, you can switch the shuttle ring functionality on the fly using the Soft Keys for quick custom control.

Instantly perform application functions, keystroke shortcuts, and macro commands using the six Soft Keys. Take a series of repetitive keyboard shortcuts that you use for editing and assign them to a single Soft Key. Assign various functions to the data wheel and shuttle ring on the fly. Effortlessly navigate your application menus and moreâ?"all without your hands ever leaving the controller. And when you use the Shift key together with any of these six Soft Keys (as well as the transport and numeric keys), you gain another 29 Soft Keys that you can program to gain fast access to your most frequently used functions.

Artist Transport intelligently recognizes the current application in focus. Each application has an associated Application Set, which automatically loads the appropriate Soft Keys whenever you switch apps. Artist Transport ships with preprogrammed Soft Keys for most popular audio and video applications, but you can easily create your own custom Soft Keys for your needs.

Play, rewind, fast forward, set markers, and more using the seven ergonomic keys set around the data wheel. You can view the status of each key through the multi-color LEDs, and easily program the functionality of each using the Soft Key editor. These controls automatically switch to match whatever application is in focus, and when used in conjunction with the Shift key, you get additional Soft Keys to program custom navigation and editing functions.

Using the integrated numeric keypad, you can instantly jump to time code or marker locations, as well as edit parameters by entering numbers. Like the transport controls, you can have all 16 numeric keys function as programmable Soft Keys when you use them with the Shift key. Press the Show Key on the numeric keypad to display the function of any Soft Key.

Because Artist Series controllers are modular, you can combine them in a variety of configurations to suit your workflow. Customize your Artist Series system with up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color for total flexibility. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surfaceâ?"or use them separatelyâ?"as each has its own Ethernet connection.

    I have the avid artist mix artist control and now the artist transport which I purchased from you guys at front end audio. I received my artist transport very quick I love it it helps my process in so many programs I can't begin to explain it lol. My next purchase is the artist color to be used with avid media composer 6 as well as to complete my avid artist set up... Thanks Front End Audio for the great service.
