Ergonomic, 1-handed transport control of multiple DAWs.
Euphonix MC Transport is a compact media controller that offers professional, hands-on control and navigation of audio and video applications. MC Transport's ultra high-resolution jog wheel, shuttle ring, ergonomic transport controls, and programmable soft keys deliver one-handed access to almost every facet of your project for an elegant editing experience.
Effortlessly switch between multiple applications and workstations at the touch of a button. The MC Transport automatically detects which application is in the foreground and sets all controls to match.
Most importantly, software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU and others have worked closely to integrate native support for Euphonix' EuCon control protocol into their media applications.
Multiple Applications and Multiple Workstations:
There is a dedicated button on MC Transport that allows you to cycle through applications and switch workstations.
MC Transport works with any application and the surface changes to match the application in focus. For applications that do not support EuCon, HUI or Mackie control, such as Photoshop and iTunes, the 6 Soft Keys (as well as the transport/numeric keys used in conjunction with the Function Key) can be used to trigger keyboard shortcuts and macro commands. For EuCon, HUI or Mackie Control applications the jog wheel and shuttle ring can be used to move around the project. This is in addition to the use of soft keys.
MC Transport can connect to multiple workstations on the network that have the EuCon Client application installed. No other controller offers this powerful feature.
Jog Wheel, Shuttle Ring, Transport Controls and Numeric Keys:
MC Transport's ergonomic controls and layout offer you comprehensive, one-handed navigation of all your media projects with unmatched tactile feedback.
Jog Wheel—The weighted, optically encoded jog wheel provides you with professional, ultra-high resolution navigation of your timeline, and can be instantly assigned to control a host of other parameters like zooming horizontally/vertically, trimming clip head and tail, setting clip gain, cross fading, etc. by simply pressing the appropriate Soft Key.
Shuttle Ring—MC Transport's optically encoded shuttle ring features a revolutionary, spring-loaded design with rubberized surface for effortless one-handed operation. Shuttle ring response can be customized for each of your favorite media applications, and as with the jog wheel, the functionality can be switched on the fly via the programmable Soft Keys to match your preferred workflow.
Transport/Navigation Controls—MC Transport offers you seven programmable transport/navigation keys with multi-color status LEDs. These controls automatically switch to match whatever application is in focus and can be customized to suit your workflow. When used in conjunction with the Function Key (shift), these transport controls serve as Soft Keys that can be programmed with additional navigation and editing functions.
Numeric Keypad—MC Transport provides you with an integrated numeric keypad that offers easy entry of locate operations like time code and marker navigation, as well as quick parameter editing. Like the transport controls, all 16 numeric keys also function as programmable Soft Keys when used in conjunction with the Function Key.
MC Transport features six Soft Keys that provide you with quick access application functions at the touch of a button. These same six Soft Keys (plus the transport and numeric keys) provide you with another 29 programmable Soft Keys when used in conjunction with the Function (shift) Key.
MC Transport ships with a comprehensive set of preprogrammed Soft Keys for all major audio and video applications that instantly match whatever application is in focus. You can also customize these Soft Keys for a variety of functions to suit your workflow. From triggering simple keystroke commands and custom macros to changing the functionality of the jog wheel and shuttle ring, the included Soft Key Editor lets you quickly edit and save your favorite Soft Keys for each application you use.
EuControl High-Speed Connectivity—Any Application
EuControl is a high-speed Ethernet control protocol developed by Euphonix that allows the MC Control to connect to any Mac OS X or Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) application. EuControl carries control information for faders, knobs, displays and more between the MC Control and whatever application is in focus on your computer. EuContol is MIDI on steroids and is the next generation control protocol for working with music and video applications.
The EuControl application manages the MC Control's connection to your computer, and the MC Client application connects the EuControl control data to all the applications. The MC Control can connect to any application, but for fader and knob control, the application must be able to support either EuCon, HUI, or Mackie Control protocol.
DAWs and Video Edit applications that include EuCon, HUI, or Mackie Control protocol include:
• Logic Pro
• Final Cut Pro
• Soundtrack Pro
• Digital Performer
• Pro Tools
The MC Control is designed to work with up to four MC Mix units and an MC Transport unit for complete audio mixing control with 36 faders. With EuCon applications, the MC Control can also be used to assign any track to any MC Mix fader and have these assignments saved for easy recall from the screen. Save a layout for drums, one for keyboards, another for guitars, and so on, to make mixing with large number of tracks a breeze. MC Control, MC Mix and MC Transport units clip together or can be situated anywhere as each has its own Ethernet connection.
