Pro Tools Control for the iPad
Avid have announced the free Pro Tools Control App for the iPad - available on the iOS App Store! You can get it here. It is only available for the iPad which, of course, makes sense! To get started, download the iPad app from the app store and also download EuControl 3.3
Take control of Pro Tools and other apps from your iPad
Take control of your favorite audio and video software, including Pro Tools, Media Composer, Logic, Cubase, and Nuendo, right from your iPad. The Pro Tools | Control app combines the tight hardware/software integration and high-speed communication power of EUCON technology with the multi-touch advancements of iOS, enabling you to record and mix faster and easier than working with a mouse and keyboard alone. And when combined with Pro Tools | S3 or Artist Mix, you gain new touch workflows and custom control. Best of all… it’s free!
Track and mix with just a touch
Speed up your efficiency using a host of controls, including transport, faders, encoders, mute and solo buttons, input monitoring, and panning. Record tracks with a tap. Ride multiple faders to bring more life to your mix. And with graphical displays, track info, and meters—including 5.1, peak, RMS, and clip metering—providing extensive visual feedback, you’ll always have insight into the key elements of your mix.
Get unrivaled audio and video control
With built-in EUCON technology, Pro Tools | Control becomes an extension of your software, enabling you to take deeper control, no matter what you’re working with. Access and control hundreds of software commands and functions, from punching in audio and toggling automation modes, to triggering complex macros that will save you tons of time. Plus, the app will automatically update its controls to any supported application you have in focus on your computer, giving you great mixing flexibility.
Mix faster with the intelligent design
Get multitouch mixing and timesaving advanced features packed in a modern display that you can take anywhere. With its intuitive layout and instant access views, you can interact with and control your mix in many ways. Filter the track display and trigger application functions, keystroke shortcuts, and macro commands with a single tap using the Soft Keys bar. And when used with Pro Tools | S3 or Artist Mix, you can view and recall channel layouts directly from the app.
Jump right into your mix with Tracks view
Big mix? No problem. With the unique Tracks view, you can visually navigate through the largest mixes, scrolling 40 tracks at a time, and quickly find and bring any track to the surface. You can also select, record-enable, solo, and mute one or more tracks right from the screen. And because audio meters are displayed for every channel, it’s easy to keep an eye on levels and make adjustments quickly.
Work with your favorite audio and video software
With Pro Tools | Control installed on your iPad, you can take unparalleled control of EUCON-aware applications*, including:
- Avid Pro Tools 12.1 or later
- Avid Pro Tools | HD 12.1 or later
- Avid Media Composer 8 or later
- Apple Logic Pro X
- Steinberg Cubase 8
- Steinberg Nuendo 6.5
* While other EUCON-enabled audio and video software may work with Pro Tools | Control, they are not qualified at this time.
Free yourself from the cables that bind
With Pro Tools | Control, you can wirelessly control your software, enabling you to cut the cord and work in ways not possible with a mouse or cable-connected control surface. Record yourself in a different room from your DAW, such as an isolation booth or sound stage. Mix from your favorite seat in your house. Control up to two networked audio/video workstations across a facility—no matter what room they’re in. Trigger playback or recording while on stage. Even take stealth control of a Foley or ADR session in the same room as your talent, without causing audible detriment from a key press or mouse click.
Extend your Pro Tools | S3 or Artist Mix workflow
Get enhanced touch control, quick-access Tracks view, better soft keys control, a counter display, additional visual feedback, and customizable layouts when you use Pro Tools | Control with your existing control surface. Not only does the app add timesaving new features and customizability to your workflow, it offers a convenient way to recall layouts and trigger macros as you continue mixing on your S3 or Artist Mix.
