We had been looking forward to getting hands-on with the Euphonix MC Control and MC Mix professional control surfaces and were impressed by what we saw...
Euphonix say that the new controllers bring the unparalleled speed, resolution and DAW integration of Euphonix’s high-end professional consoles to the personal studio. The MC Control and MC Mix easily integrate into any studio, fitting perfectly between a computer keyboard and screen, and up to four units can be connected to create a larger, integrated control surface.
The MC Control and MC Mix feature EuCon, a high-speed control protocol developed by Euphonix that enables simultaneous control of multiple applications and even workstations over an Ethernet cable at 250 times the speed and eight times the resolution of MIDI. EuCon automatically detects whatever application is in the foreground and instantly sets the high-resolution touchscreen and OLED displays, motorized faders and arsenal of controls to match.
Euphonix has worked closely with the world’s leading software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU and others to deeply integrate native EuCon support into their DAWs to provide high-resolution, high-speed control over almost all DAW functions for an unmatched editing and mixing experience. The MC Control and MC Mix also support the HUI and Mackie Control protocols for even greater flexibility, at a faster speed and higher resolution than any other controllers.

    This thing is "the tits"

    I really hope they release a cut-down vers. for the amateur muso

    Ya never know. It may just become some sort of industry standard, as long as the other big boys adopt their protocol.... (that's the hardest bit, of course)

    The tits? That reminds me...

    Apple have announced the iTIT - a microchip that can be implanted into a woman's breasts and play music. This is regarded as a major breakthrough as women are always moaning that men just stare at their tits and never listen to them.

    I was thinking of buying a 01v96 and an ADAT- interface, but maybe I'm going to buy a Focusrite 26io and an MC Control. For a more flexible system, sort of speak... Love this controller!

    so if i understand this right, Ultrabeat (in logic) has 64 pages of plug-in controls. What if the control you want is on page 41. That's a lot of scrolling. useless for controlling plug-ins.

    I'm already looking forward to your video review when you have it hands-on.

    If I'm not mistaken, euphonix and jazzmutant are the only peeps that make use of an ethernet connection.
