Any of you own a Avid Artist controller?
I’m looking out to retire my old JL Cooper, and actually waiting for Behringer to finally come out with the X-Touch, but more and more I’ve been considering a combo of the Artist Mix and Transport. I really like the elegant appearance and it looks rock solid, but I do have some questions, if you’ve got the time:
- How does it play with Cubase/Nuendo? Would you say integration’s nice and tight, or does it have functional limitations á la MCP?
- It doesn’t look like either Artist sports an abundance of buttons. Is there something missing on the surface that would qualify as a grade-A PITA?
- The display on the Artist Transport LOOKS elegant, but is it large enough, what functions can you map to it and is it easily readable?
- How do the faders/jog-wheel feel?
I’d love to hear about your experiences! Thanx a lot in advance!
