As a longtime Mackie (MCU) user i thought i’d take a look at the EUCON controllers and saw that Avid have a free ipad app, so gave it a try last night.
All i can say is Wow! That’s some great integration, really interested in getting a hardware controller now for real fader/rotary controls - but will use this app for a month to see how efficient it can be as a longterm replacement.
Firstly, anyone using Mackie gear, you really should give the app a try and see what the integration is like, it’s totally free and you only need to register with Avid to download the EUCON software driver. I had no idea how well integrated it was with Cubase/Nuendo.
Secondly, i have a few issues and wondered if anyone has a solution(s):-
- Sometimes the VSTi push button doesn’t show, meaning i can’t control VST instruments - is this a known bug?
- I can adjust insert plugins, and i can swap out existing inserts, but i can’t ADD new inserts to a track - is there a way to do this?
- Low/High cuts on the EQ, is this possible to control?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help on the above. ^^.
Also, one other question, anyone know if the Euphonix MC Control be used totally on it’s own with Cubase. (The one with 4 faders and the screen)
I’m asking as it seems to be sold as an extension, but i love the concept of the touchscreen and hardware controls being on one unit. But not sure how it would translate with only 4 faders. (i.e. can you bank in lots of 4?)
