Puts the "pro" in your project studio.
The Euphonix MC Control brings unparalleled speed, resolution, and DAW integration to your studio in a revolutionary ergonomic, slim-line design. The MC Control easily fits into any studio, sitting perfectly between a computer keyboard and screen. Multiple units can be connected to create a larger, integrated control surface. The Euphonix MC Control is the perfect mix of form and function, and works with Mac only.
The MC Control lets you effortlessly switch between multiple applications and even workstations at the touch of a button. The touch-sensitive knobs, motorized faders, and high-resolution touch-screen display automatically set themselves to whatever application is in the foreground to provide immediate access to multiformat metering, plug-in parameters, EQ curves and much more.
Most importantly, Euphonix has worked closely with the world's leading software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU, Apogee, and others to deeply integrate native support for Euphonix' EuCon control protocol into their DAWs to deliver an unmatched editing and mixing experience.
Significant Control Features:
•Controls multiple audio/video applications via Ethernet
•250X faster and 8X the resolution of MIDI
•Supports HUI and Mackie Control protocol
•Slim-line design for easy studio integration and portability
•Studio Monitor Express software
•Add up to four MC Mix controllers for up to 36 faders total

Customizable touch-screen interface
The high-resolution 800 x 480 pixel touch-screen interface not only displays all of your project's top-level information like track names/numbers, metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), fader/pan values, automation mode, etc., but also lets you quickly access all plug-in and EQ parameters, effortlessly setup macro commands for any function (or sequence of functions), and much more.
Enable direct arming of tracks for recording and/or selection of each track's automation mode.
Lock the selected track to a dedicated fader while allowing you to bank through tracks with the remaining faders—perfect for master fader and submix applications.
