Pro Tools | Dock is a new EUCON control surface that works with Avid’s iPad app, Pro Tools | Control.
The Dock is based on the touchscreen workflows on the Master Touch Module of the Pro Tools | S6. Both systems are based on the idea that mixers need the best of physical faders, knobs, and switches in conjunction with touchscreen technology for things like fast navigation, metering, and on-screen plug-in control – a true hybrid approach.
When the Dock is paired with Pro Tools | S3, you gain complimentary and enhanced functionality with the dedicated automation switches, transport controls, weighted aluminum jog wheel, color-coded Soft Key switches and more.
The Dock works standalone with an iPad and will be available in early 2016 at $1,199 retail – (iPad Air sold separately). The Dock also pairs with the S3 Pro Tools 12.3 is expected to be available in November.
