AVID ANNOUNCES PRO TOOLS | DOCK CONTROL SURFACE
At the recent AES Convention, Avid introduced the new Pro Tools | Dock, a portable control surface. Working together with an iPad running the free Pro Tools | Control app, it gives users the access, integration and precision needed to edit and mix projects at a faster pace.
Powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Pro Tools | Dock is based on the advanced touchscreen workflows of the Pro Tools | S6 and the hybrid touchscreen/hardware control of the Avid Artis | Control surface. Users can navigate large projects quickly and, via the iPad touchscreen, gain instant access to any track.
With Pro Tools | Dock, users can work with EUCON-enabled DAWs and video editing tools including Pro Tools, Media Composer, Logic Pro X, Cubase and Premiere Pro. When paired with Pro Tools |S3, users gain new timesaving touch workflows and custom control, making it ideal for mixing music and post projects in smaller spaces and on smaller budgets.
Avid states that Pro Tools | Dock will be available in the first quarter of 2016.
