Integrated Control Surface for Pro Tools TDM Systems

 

ProControl will alter your concept of what to expect when working with a professional digital audio workstation. While it looks and feels like a true world-class console, it offers far more extensive control than traditional consoles. 

The Pro Tools® TDM system contains some of the most powerful mix automation available on any digital system, regardless of price. This includes Write, Touch, Latch and Read modes for fader levels, pans, sends, mutes, Plug-In parameters and more. With ProControl, literally every parameter capable of automation in Pro Tools TDM systems can be controlled from the ProControl surface -- and more.

The ProControl Main Unit features 8 of our patented DigiFaders that incorporate a sealed encoder, servo-controlled motor, and "Flex Circuit." This unique design provides the feel, performance, and reliability of moving faders found on other high-end mixing consoles. Advanced touch-sensitive circuitry means all you have to do is touch the fader to override servo control. Each 100mm DigiFader provides 10-bits (1,024 steps) of resolution; Pro Tools then provides 24-bit interpolation of these values, to ensure accurate reproduction of your fader moves.

ProControl is designed to serve as the sole control surface in your Pro Tools TDM mixing and editing environment. Fader and send levels, pan position, scrub/shuttle, transport control, edit tools/modes, Plug-In access and editing are all available from the ProControl surface. Control room and studio monitoring of stereo or surround sound Pro Tools mixes is also accessible. ProControl even includes an integrated trackpad for those rare times when you need to access an item on the Pro Tools graphical user interface.

ProControl connects easily to TDM-based Pro Tools systems (for Mac OS and Windows NT) with a fast, standard 10Base-T Ethernet connection. Ethernet makes it possible to network ProControl Main and Expansion units throughout a production facility. It also provides the fastest, most reliable performance of an integrated Pro Tools/ProControl system, especially in larger configurations.

 

Featuring high-quality, hands-on control of your Pro Tools® TDM-based mixing, editing and DSP processing environment, plus a comprehensive monitoring section, ProControl is the only mix controller you'll need in your studio. ProControl also offers a flexible, modular design (expandable in eight-channel increments to 48 channels), so it can be customized to fit your needs and budget.
