Tony Cariddi from Avid gave SOS News Editor Will Betts an overview of the brand new Pro Tools Dock earlier today at the AES Show in New York. The Pro Tools Dock is a portable, affordable ($1199) surface that gives audio and music professionals intelligent studio control. Working together with an iPad running the free Pro Tools Control app, it gives users the access, integration, and precision they need to edit and mix projects faster.
Powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Pro Tools Dock is based on the advanced touchscreen workflows of the Pro Tools S6 and the hybrid touchscreen/hardware control of the best-selling Avid Artist Control surface. Users can navigate large projects quickly and access any track instantly on the iPad touchscreen.
With Pro Tools Dock, users can work with their favorite EUCON-enabled DAWs and video editing tools, including Pro Tools, Media Composer, Logic Pro X, Cubase, and Premiere Pro. When paired with Pro Tools S3, users gain new time-saving touch workflows and custom control making it suitable for mixing music and post projects in smaller spaces—and on smaller budgets.
“With Avid Everywhere we strive to deliver innovative solutions to help our customers bring their creative ideas to life,” said Kyle Kim-Hays, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Avid. “Pro Tools | Dock gives audio professionals the tactile precision they need to focus on their mix with their ears instead of their eyes, enabling them to create better sounding mixes faster.”
