Pro Tools | Dock Control Surface

Pro Tools | Dock Control Surface accelerates your editing and mixing tasks in creative new ways. This compact, portable control board is based on the advanced touchscreen workflows of the award-winning Pro Tools | S6 and the hybrid commands of the bestselling Artist | Control. The Pro Tools | Dock offers users intelligent studio control in a portable, ergonomic, and affordable package. It works with your iPad to give you the quick touchscreen access and tactile precision control you need to navigate and control your audio projects faster. With the combination of touchscreen, fader, knob, and switch control, artists gain incomparable navigation speed and tactile precision to create better sounding mixes.

Features of Pro Tools | Dock Control Surface

Touchscreen Control
Easily connects with your iPad and Avid's free Pro Tools | Control iOS app, providing intelligent control of your audio and video projects. The app offers a host of touch controls and visual feedback to speed up your efficiency. Plus, you can navigate huge sessions with speed and ease using the Universe Scroller. Bring the channels you’re looking for quickly to the surface through color-coded tiles in Tracks view.

Adjust Parameters
The Dock includes eight push-top, touch-sensitive Soft Knobs that interact with the knobset you select in the Pro Tools | Control app. Select an EQ, plug-in, send, pan, or other item, and all parameters instantly map to the knobs for tweaking.

Program Soft Keys
Assign the 16 Soft Keys to do repetitive work for you. Trigger menu commands and other software functions and recall layouts at the press of a button. Or adapt the Dock to your unique workflow by programming macros to perform more complex tasks.

Navigate Your Way
Get full transport controls, plus an alternate Shift layer to access commands such as back + play and pre/post roll on or off. Use the assignable weighted jog wheel and right-side switches to jog, shuttle, zoom, bank, switch workstations, and more. And scroll through projects or perform custom tasks with the two programmable touch strips.

Important Channels
You can work with multiple tracks in Pro Tools | Control. When you need to focus on a specific track—a single “attention” channel is available. Select any track from the touchscreen and the channel maps directly to the Dock’s surface controls. Adjust levels with the touch-sensitive, motorized fader. Select, record-enable, solo, and mute the track.

Automate Tracks
With 12 dedicated automation switches, you can toggle modes and write automation directly from the surface. Press the ALT key and you have access to additional Pro Tools | HD functions using the same keys, including Preview, Join, Punch Capture, and Write to Punch. You can even attach a footswitch to the Dock to control punch recording.

Enhanced Touch workflows to Pro Tools | S3 (sold separately)
Pair Pro Tools | Dock with a Pro Tools | S3 control surface and you’ll gain even more timesaving workflows. View and access any track instantly through the touchscreen. Customize and recall layouts to jump right into a track set or workflow quickly. Trigger frequently performed functions and macros with dedicated Soft Keys as you continue mixing on S3. And view tons of additional visual feedback to enhance your mixing experience.
