Manufacturer's Description from Avid

Instantly perform application functions, keystroke shortcuts, and macro commands using the six Soft Keys. Take a series of repetitive keyboard shortcuts that you use for editing and assign them to a single Soft Key.Assign various functions to the data wheel and shuttlering on the fly.

Using the integrated numeric keypad, you can instantly jump to time code or marker locations, as well as edit parameters by entering numbers. Like the transport controls, you can have all 16 numeric keys function as programmable Soft Keys when you use them with the Shift key. Press the Show Key on the numeric keypad to display the function of any Soft Key.


Play, rewind, fast forward, set markers, and more using the seven ergonomic keys set around the data wheel. You can view the status of each key through the multi-color LEDs, and easily program the functionality of each using the Soft Key editor. These controls automatically switch to match whatever application is in focus, and when used in conjunction with the Shift key, you get additional Soft Keys to program custom navigation and editing functions.


Because Artist Series controllers are modular, you can combine them in a variety of configurations to suit your workflow. Customize your Artist Series system with up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color for total flexibility—up to 36 faders total. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surface—or use them separately—as each has its own Ethernet connection.
