    Avid Artist Mix Newbie



    I'm a professional Avid Editor working on cable and network shows.  I often work with sequences exceeding 16 tracks of audio and am intrigued by the artist mix.  I spend a lot of time using the software mixer and mouse and like the idea of speeding up my workflow.


    Anyone on here using the ARtist Mix with Media Composer 8.5 or newer?  How do you like it.  This may be a dumb question, but can you bank to control more than 8 channels in a timeline?  If I'm working with 16-20 channels in a sequence, am I limitied to only controlling 1-8 with the Artist Mix or can you switch banks to mix more channels?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    It’s OK. And yes, you can either browse banks (1-8,9-16, etc) or nudge (track by track). It can be noisy when the faders are moving around. Some people have had bad luck with EuCon, but for me it has mostly worked. Sometimes need to power cycle the unit to get it to connect again. If you freelance in many different places, it might prove tricky to have the right connection available everywhere (it connects via network).

    my advice would be to see if you can try out a unit.

    Hi I use one daily and it works great I do have its own switch as I have color and and control as well. You will find it works more stable with dedicated IP addresses rather than DHCP and it will control banks as well as tracks
