MC Pro Overview

Professionals need precise, customizable workstation control to keep up with today’s fast-paced editorial/production schedules and ever-expanding project sizes. With the compact and ergonomic Avid MC Pro (previously Euphonix MC Pro) control surface, you can speed up your post or music work and get a deep, rich editing experience over many applications using EUCON Ethernet control. What’s more, the surface automatically detects your current application (when working with multiple apps) and resets all controls to match, so you can focus on your work. And with its programmable SmartSwitches, you can perform complex tasks/keystrokes with a single button press. For those looking for a complete editing/mixing solution, MC Pro is also the heart of the System 5-MC.
