The Euphonix MC Transport Compact Media Controller is loaded with power features that speed up and enhance your creativity with any media application. From its extremely high-resolution optical jog wheel and shuttle ring to ergonomic transport controls, programmable Soft Keys and integrated numeric key pad, the MC Transport controller gives you one-handed access to almost every facet of your audio project for simple editing. It is meant to work with Macs only.
The Euphonix MC Transport, switches effortlessly between multiple applications and workstations at the touch of a button. The controller automatically detects the foreground application and sets all controls to match. Most importantly, software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU, and others worked closely with Euphonix to integrate native support for Euphonix' EuCon control protocol into their media applications to deliver an unmatched editing experience.
EuCon is a high-speed Ethernet control protocol developed by Euphonix that allows MC Transport to connect to any application. EuCon carries control information between MC Transport and whatever application is in focus on your computer.
EuCon is MIDI on steroids and is the next generation control protocol for working with media applications. The EuControl application manages MC Transport's connection to the workstation, and MC Client application connects the EuCon control data to all the applications. MC Transport can connect to any application, but offers the greatest control over applications that support either EuCon, HUI, or Mackie Control protocols (Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Cubase, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Pro Tools, Reason, Live, more).
Multiple Applications & Multiple Workstations
There is a dedicated button on MC Transport that allows you to cycle through applications and switch workstations.
MC Transport works with any application and the surface changes to match the application in focus. For applications that do not support EuCon, HUI or Mackie control, such as Photoshop and iTunes, the 6 Soft Keys (as well as the transport/numeric keys used in conjunction with the Function Key) can be used to trigger keyboard shortcuts and macro commands.
For EuCon, HUI, or Mackie Control applications, the jog wheel and shuttle ring can be used to move around the project. This is in addition to the use of soft keys.
MC Transport can connect to multiple workstations on the network that have the EuCon Client application installed. No other controller offers this powerful feature.
MC Transport's ergonomic controls and layout offer you comprehensive, one-handed navigation of all your media projects with unmatched tactile feedback.
Jog Wheel”The weighted, optically encoded jog wheel provides you with professional, high-resolution navigation of your timeline, and can be instantly assigned to control a host of other parameters like zooming horizontally/vertically, trimming clip head and tail, setting clip gain, cross fading, etc. by simply pressing the appropriate Soft Key.
Shuttle Ring”MC Transport's optically encoded shuttle ring features a revolutionary, spring-loaded design with rubberized surface for effortless one-handed operation. Shuttle ring response can be customized for each of your favorite media applications, and, as with the jog wheel, the functionality can be switched on the fly via the programmable Soft Keys to match your preferred workflow.
Transport/Navigation Controls”MC Transport offers you seven programmable transport/navigation keys with multicolor status LEDs. These controls automatically switch to match whatever application is in focus and can be customized to suit your workflow. When used in conjunction with the Function Key (shift), these transport controls serve as Soft Keys that can be programmed with additional navigation and editing functions.
Numeric Keypad”MC Transport provides you with an integrated numeric keypad that offers easy entry of locate operations like time code and marker navigation, as well as quick parameter editing. Like the transport controls, all 16 numeric keys also function as programmable Soft Keys when used in conjunction with the Function Key.
MC Transport features six Soft Keys that provide you with quick access application functions at the touch of a button. These same six Soft Keys (plus the transport and numeric keys) provide you with another 29 programmable Soft Keys when used in conjunction with the Function (shift) Key.
MC Transport ships with a comprehensive set of preprogrammed Soft Keys for all major audio and video applications that instantly match whatever application is in focus. You can also customize these Soft Keys for a variety of functions to suit your workflow. From triggering simple keystroke commands and custom macros to changing the functionality of the jog wheel and shuttle ring, the included Soft Key Editor lets you quickly edit and save your favorite Soft Keys for each application you use.
This connects the MC Transport to your workstation. An Ethernet hub or switch is required to connect additional MC Control (sold separately) and/or MC Mix (sold separately) unit(s), or to connect to a network.
