    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    Hi,

     

    More information on this topic here:

    http://community.avid.com/forums/p/133711/813576.aspx#813576

     

    In a nut shell the thread says: As there are no programmable keys on Artist Mix, if you prefer Shift Solo 1 to temporarily (and quickly) disable/enable fader movements, you will need EuControl version 3.2.2 for versions before MC 8.5 (I've tested it on MC7) and 3.3.2 for MC 8.6.1+ (which I've also tested on 8.6.1).

     

    It seems no one realised that the Artist Mix is the only console without soft keys, when they decided to implement the programmable/soft keys in EuC 3.4.  (NB, there are two Shift keys on the console, why not make the right hand one the fader disable key? and in the EuControl app have an option for enabling the Artist Mix Fader Disable button - there's a danger of there being too many enables and disables in that last sentence that could produce an unwanted neutralising effect...).  

     

    Switching the console off is not an option because it takes soooo incredibly long for it to reconnect to the network and longer still for EuC to even notice and sometimes it won't auto connect, so no, switching the console off is a silly unhelpful idea - nice try ;-)

    Hope some of this is usefull,

    I have ben told that to implement this properly it should be handled as new feature work/request. The team is working on determining the scope to add and should know more soon.  

    Could you email me directly in 2 weeks and I should have an update for you.

    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    Hi Marianna,

    Have you heard any word on this issue?

    Will there be/is there a fix specifically for the Artist Mix so we can still easily/quickly disable/enable the fader movement?

    Unfortunately, the current driver that retains this function (3.3.2) still has issues with latency and intermittent lack of volume response in playback even though the Avid's GUI Audio Mixer tool reflects the Artist Mix's new fader position (in all versions of MC up to 8.6.1).  Current Work-Around: open another sequence and then re-open sequence the volume change was made in and then it plays the newly set volume - in case anyone needed to know.

    thanks,

    Jonno

    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    When do you expect it? I'm considering selling my artist mix if this isn't fixed soon. Some sort of timeframe would be great.

    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    I second that. It's kinda of embarassing having the director on your side and not being able to silent the room for a playback. 

    The frustation I get from using this panel on MC has a close relation to this, it works well on Protools, but it's really lackluster on the video side of things. I understand video might not be a priority for this panel but still there are quite a few users out there, doing a lot of work. We get very few buttons for the money we paid. Far less than PT users. Premiere, on another hand, makes full use of it, I even get levels.

    I wish I could exchange my one for a artist color, at least it would be fairly usefull on Baselight.

    Or Avid could make Protools integration with MC so natural, we could flip to PT and use this panel.

    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    I've just jumped into this short project on Premiere this week and it's embarassing. All the controls work smoothly while on it, I can change levels while playing back, it works instantly, panning works as well, I get levels on the OLED, etc. It really doesn't make sense. It's like going from a USB 2.0 to 3.0.

    Wow. Well on the upside, that will help with its resale value.

    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    Can I join my voice to the many who would very much like to see this feature re-instated. 

    I find it bazaar that Avid could remove this without a thought for the users - Just as well they don't make cars - I find the parking brake a handy feature in my motorWink

    Re: Avid Artist Mix - cannot disable fader motors...

    Another victim here:

    It has been about two years since this 'feature change' disabled a much-needed function.  On my current show, I have been forced to adopt a later version of MediaComposer that will not work well with legacy EuControl versions.

    And now, the work-around of purchasing an Artist Control or an Artist Transport (for the sole purpose of assigning a soft button to "Motors Off") is no longer available, as these units are no longer sold by AVID (based on a look at the product page today).  One could buy a unit used, but if they are no longer sold, soon they will also be End-Of-Life, meaning the work-around may soon be EOL, as well.

    Apparently, we now have the sole remaining option of using/purchasing an iPad in order to assign a soft-key.  Which means I have to purchase a $350+ "button" that is big, bright, awkward to place on my desk, goes to sleep, and needs an authorization to wake up.  Not to mention it may not be on the same network.  No fun.

    For those of us who have loved and relied upon the Artist Mix on Media Composer, this lack of in-built "motors off" key combination is still an issue that needs resolution.  And last I checked, there are no other options for flying-fader automation on MediaComposer.

     

     

    So what about just adding a "legacy" mode or "MediaComposer mode" checkbox for us in the next version of EuControl?  Respectfully and humbly, it seems not too much to ask. Confused

     

     

    (...or have a I missed news of a fix?  Hope dies last!)
