Accelerate your editing and mixing tasks in creative new ways. Based on the advanced touchscreen workflows of the award-winning Avid S6 and hybrid command of the bestselling Artist Control, Avid Dock (Formerly ProTools Dock) provides intelligent studio control in a portable, ergonomic, and affordable surface. Working together with your iPad or Android tablet, you get the quick touchscreen access and tactile precision control you need to navigate and control music and post projects faster using your favorite DAWs. And when paired with Avid S1 or S3, you gain new timesaving touch workflows and custom control. Mixing deadlines have met their match.
Work with Your Favorite Creative Tools
Avid Dock supports EUCON technology, giving you unmatched hardware/software integration and native touch and tactile control of a wide range of audio and video software. Experience the deepest level of integration and control with Pro Tools. Plus, get exceptional control of Logic Pro X, Cubase, Nuendo, Premiere Pro, Digital Performer, Samplitude, and many other EUCON-enabled DAWs. Because the Dock is EUCON-aware, it automatically switches its controls to the application in focus on your computer. Or you can lock down parts of the surface to specific software for multi-application control.
Mix with Speed and Precision
Mixing can be tedious with a keyboard and mouse alone. Or lacking in tactile feedback with just a touchscreen. With the combination of touchscreen, fader, knob, and switch control, you gain incomparable navigation speed and tactile precision to create better sounding mixes faster. Jump to any track or section with a touch. Create custom macros to perform complex tasks instantly. And mix with your ears – not your eyes – with ergonomic controls you can feel at your fingers.
Expand Your Versatility
Forget limiting yourself to a single application, workflow, or industry. With the Avid Dock and your iOS or Android tablet, you can boost your creative opportunities. Work with multiple software tools in parallel instead of porting projects. Get extensive audio, video, and monitoring software integration and control from the surface. Take control of DAWs and video editing applications to mix music or audio post projects. And powerfully extend the capabilities of Avid S1 or S3. All from a single integrated control surface.
