Pro Tools | Dock is a EUCON-aware, compact Ethernet control surface that integrates with an iPad running the free Pro Tools | Control iOS app, offering the best of touchscreen and tactile control for a variety of digital audio and video editing applications.
A perfect companion to S3, the Dock provides eight push-top, touch-sensitive Soft Knobs that interact with whatever knobset you’ve chosen in the iPad. Select an item, and all parameters instantly map to the knobs for tweaking. And because you’re mixing with physical controls, you don’t have to focus on your computer screen and can instead really listen to how your adjustments impact your mix.
With the Dock you can click your way through frequently performed editing and mixing tasks. Or you can assign the 16 Soft Keys to do the dirty work for you. Trigger menu commands and other software functions and recall layouts at the press of a button. Or adapt the Dock to your unique workflow by programming macros to perform more complex tasks.
When you need to focus on a specific track for more tactile precision, a single “attention” channel awaits. Select any track from the touchscreen and the channel maps directly to the Dock’s surface controls. Adjust levels with the touch-sensitive, motorized fader. Select, record-enable, solo, and mute the track. And keep an eye on your levels with the 10-segment meter.
All this and much more will be arriving in Q1/2016, stay tuned for more info in the coming months.
