Pro Tools | Dock Mixing deadlines have met their match. Based on the advanced touchscreen workflows of the award-winning Pro Tools | S6 and hybrid command of the bestselling Artist | Control, Pro Tools | Dock provides intelligent studio control in a portable, ergonomic, and affordable surface. Working together with your iPad, you get the quick touchscreen access and tactile precision control you need to navigate and control music and post projects faster using your favorite DAWs.

  1. Pro Tools | Dock will quickly connect with a user’s iPad and the free Pro Tools | Control iOS app, providing intelligent control of audio and video projects. The app offers a host of customizable touch controls and visual feedback to improve efficiency, allowing users to navigate huge sessions with ease and bring the channels they’re looking for to the surface quickly.
  2. Users can work with multiple tracks in Pro Tools | Control, but when they need to focus on a specific track, or want more tactile precision, they can use a single “attention” channel. Users simply select any track from the touchscreen and the channel maps directly to the Dock’s surface controls.
  3. Pro Tools | Dock provides eight touch-sensitive Soft Knobs extend the functionality of Pro Tools | Control. By making adjustments with physical controls, users don’t have to focus on their computer screen, enabling them to really listen to how their adjustments affect their mix.
  4. With twelve dedicated automation switches, users can toggle modes and write automation directly from the surface.
  5. Users can click through frequently performed editing and mixing tasks or adapt the Dock to their unique workflow by programming macros to perform more complex tasks.
  6. Pairing Pro Tools | Dock with a Pro Tools | S3 control surface delivers even more timesaving workflows and enhanced control.
  7. Concern for the size of the session is obsolete as channels can be quickly accessed in Tracks or Universe view. 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.
  8. Pro Tools | Dock uses EUCON, a high-speed Ethernet-based technology that enables the hardware to communicate directly with multiple applications and workstations. This lets users work on a Pro Tools project, then switch to other EUCON-compatible audio software in seconds.
