High-performance jog/shuttle/transport control for Pro Tools and other audio/video apps (formerly Euphonix MC Transport)
Experience a new level of control with Artist Transport—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 that’s ideal for laptop use—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.

Take control with EUCON
With Artist Transport, you gain deep, integrated control over your favorite EUCON-enabled creative applications, such as Pro Tools 9, Media Composer, Logic, Nuendo, Cubase, Final Cut, Digital Performer, and more. EUCON carries high-resolution control information for faders, knobs, displays, and more between Artist Transport and whatever application is in focus on your computer. This enables you to quickly switch between multiple applications—and even workstations—at the touch of a button, with all controls and displays automatically matching the selected application.
High-resolution, high-speed control
With 8x the resolution and 250x the speed of MIDI, EUCON gives you powerful, highly responsive tactile control that feels like working on a professional console.
Work with multiple applications
Speed up modern, multi-app workflows. With Artist Transport, you can switch applications directly from the surface, and all surface controls and displays will instantly match your current application.
Control multiple workstations
Access any workstation running EUCON-enabled software on your extended network, with keyboard and mouse commands automatically forwarded to the selected workstation—ideal for multi-workstation workflows and facilities with machine rooms.
Customize for your needs
Connect multiple Artist Series controllers to function as one extended control surface—or use them independently. You can even customize the controls to meet your needs, such as setting the control sensitivity and more.
Avid and its development partners continue to develop EUCON, making it easy to add new features and functionality to your favorite software through software updates—EUCON even supports HUI and Mackie Control protocols for even greater flexibility
Get precision control
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.
Speed up navigation 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.
Trigger custom actions
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 more—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. Control playback with ease
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.
Enter data quickly
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.
Customize your control surface
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 surface—or use them separately—as each has its own Ethernet connection.
