Buy Avid | Artist Mix on EMI for 3, 6, 9 & 12 months.
Get fast access to a variety of software functions right from the surface—with excellent visual feedback—all in a compact footprint that fits perfectly between your keyboard and screen.
Select tracks with a touch
Artist Mix features eight touch-sensitive faders, enabling you to call attention to a track in the software by simply touching a fader. Used in combination with the Bank and Nudge keys, you can navigate large mixes quickly, without clicking through your software. You can also record-enable, mute, solo, and assign tracks right from the surface. In addition, the mute and solo keys do double duty as transport control keys too.
Control plug-ins, EQ, and more
The eight touch-sensitive knobs at the top of the surface can be used to control multiple functions. In normal mode, use the knobs to pan tracks. In channel mode, the knobs can be used to adjust individual parameters for plug-ins, EQ, dynamics, aux sends, VCA groups, and more. You can even flip control from the knobs to the faders, providing an alternative way of adjusting parameters for things like a graphic EQ.
Get detailed feedback
View track information, status, and feedback for each fader strip through eight OLED screens. Each display shows the track’s name and name of the parameter currently assigned to the knob, along with a graphical display of the parameter setting. Plus, you can view meters (clip, peak, and normal) for mono, stereo, or surround tracks, as well as the track’s automation mode.
Grab hold of your mix Why edit and mix one thing at a time with a keyboard and mouse? Artist Mix greatly accelerates your workflow so you can complete projects faster—without having to click around a software interface. Record-enable, solo, mute, and automate tracks from the surface. Adjust volume levels across multiple tracks simultaneously. Fine-tune compressors, gates, EQ, and more with a twist. You can even punch in and out of recordings by connecting a footswitch.
Mix with precision Get accurate and smooth mixing control through eight motorized, touch-sensitive, 100mm long throw faders. Just touch a fader to select the corresponding track for editing. You can also lock individual tracks to faders and store them as Layouts—up to 48 per project—for easy recall, making mixing large projects a breeze. You can save multiple Layouts to mix groups of tracks, such as drums or backing vocals, or just lock a fader to act as a master fader.
Quickly navigate projects No matter how large the session, you can easily get to the tracks you need directly from the surface. Bank through fader strips eight at a time. Or use the Nudge key to navigate through tracks one fader strip at a time. The surface also provides full transport controls. Not only do you get the usual suspects—play, stop, record, fast-forward, and rewind—but also RTZ (return to zero), plus previous and next keys to navigate markers.
Create a custom surface All Artist Series controllers are modular, so you can combine them together into a single slimline surface to suit your workflow. Connect up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color in any order for a total of up to 36 faders. Or use them separately, as each controller has its own Ethernet connection.
Adjust parameters with a twist Control everything from panning and gain to plug-ins, EQ settings, and more using the eight press-and-turn knobs. With their touch-sensitivity, you can write automation quickly and intuitively. They’re also velocity-sensitive, enabling you to quickly sweep from minimum to maximum parameter values in one turn. Or make very precise adjustments by turning the knob slowly. Press the knob tops to instantiate plug-ins, sends, and more.
