And I find myself in the humiliating position of being the one dumbass in this crowd who can’t seem to make it work. Can’t seem to make the EUCON connection-- just getting its icon dimmed out on the iPad with a “no connection” triangle.
Anybody feel like walking through the Mac/iPad Pro process? I have a feeling I MAY have downloaded the wrong eucon software…
Yes, must be on the same software generation. Also, open the Eucontrol software (command + 1 on Mac) and ensure that under the Surfaces tab you have added your Avid Control (move from “All Surfaces” to “My Surfaces” if it didn’t do it automatically). john
Well, THAT’S really disappointing. They claimed to have fixed this on the Avid site. Then someone using Cubase said they didn’t fix anything. They’ve set it up to work with S1, so if you try using it with Artist Control, you actually lose features that HAD worked with the PT App. I’m talking really basic stuff like BANKING! Avid says they’ll fix this by 1st quarter 2020. We’ll see.
Anyway, now you’re saying that it’s great. I’m really glad they fixed the crashing issue. But even that is suspect since you were on an all Mac system. All of the PC people have never been able to get that tracks page to work without crashing! So I don’t really know what to think.
I’ve downloaded 19.12 onto my iPad. But I’ve been waiting to update my Artist Series hardware to 19.12 because it’s SO STABLE ON 18.3. I’m not sure how much use I’ll actually get out of it without the S1 hardware. What I do know, is that, without that Mixing Mirroring issue being resolved, I’m way more inclined to wait before firing mine up.
I have an iPad for my home setup. Cubase IC and PT Control are installed on it. But as I work on post stuff, and have an intensive use of automation. So I use the iPad as an third monitor to show the automation panel. I only use Cubase IC or PT Control when on location with the laptop.
I know that the channel will disappear when it is disabled. I have offered that discovery as a work around on the Avid forum. This suggestion was immediately shot down because you lose the audio output when it’s disabled, as opposed to just hidden. That’s a fair point. But I was trying to point out the one desired advantage. Bottom line, that’s still a big problem. In fact, besides the tracks page crashing issue, I couldn’t think of a more urgent concern.
The thing about improving something is that it assumes you’re adding to something that works, not substituting it for something you had. They fixed the crashing problem. Great! But now I lose banking?
If they weren’t going to make Avid Control backward compatible, they should have left the PT Control App as an option for all of us Artist Series Users.
@fenderchris: You can create an avid account with no hardware on the main avid site. Afterwards just install the app on any device and it will activate the eucon suite for download based on your login data. I don’t own any avid hardware also. Just did that and tested it on my lg g2, how nice they have android support now.
