Mini footprint. Massive control.

Accelerate your editing and mixing tasks in creative new ways. 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. And when paired with Pro Tools | S3, you gain new timesaving touch workflows and custom control. Mixing deadlines have met their match.

Mix with speed and precision
Mixing can be tedious with a keyboard and mouse alone. Or lacking in tactile feedback with just a touchscreen. With the combination of touchscreen, fader, knob, and switch control, you gain incomparable navigation speed and tactile precision to create better sounding mixes faster. Jump to any track or section with a touch. Create custom macros to perform complex tasks instantly. And mix with your ears—not your eyes—with ergonomic controls you can feel at your fingers.

Expand your versatility
Forget limiting yourself to a single application, workflow, or industry. With the Pro Tools | Dock and your iPad, you can boost your creative opportunities. Work with multiple software tools in parallel instead of porting projects. Get extensive Pro Tools integration. Handle every aspect of a production from beginning to end. Mix music and audio post, and enhance video projects. And powerfully extend the capabilities of Pro Tools | S3. All from a single integrated control surface.

Work with your favorite creative tools
Experience the deepest level of integration and control with Pro Tools and Pro Tools | HD. Plus, get exceptional control of Logic Pro X, Cubase, and other EUCON-enabled DAWs. Because the Dock is EUCON-aware, it automatically switches its controls to the application in focus on your computer. Or you can lock down parts of the surface to specific software for multi-application control.

Get major control at a minor price
No other control solution offers the incredible power of integrated tactile and touch control, previously only found in the acclaimed Pro Tools | S6, at a fraction of its size and price. Gain powerful touchscreen capabilities, Attention Channel control, and Soft Knob mapping when you dock your iPad running the free Pro Tools | Control app. Plus, access software key commands, functions, and shortcuts, as well as interact with EQ, dynamics, and other parameters right from the surface.

Control surface features

Get extensive touchscreen control

Pro Tools | Dock easily connects with your own iPad and our 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. And bring the channels you’re looking for quickly to the surface through color-coded tiles in Tracks view.

Adjust parameters with a twist

The Dock provides eight push-top, touch-sensitive Soft Knobs that interact with whatever knobset you’ve chosen 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. And because you’re making adjustments with physical controls, you don’t have to focus on your computer screen and can instead really listen to how your adjustments impact your mix.

Speed up tasks with Soft Keys

You can click-click-click your way through frequently performed editing and mixing tasks. Or you can assign the 16 Soft Keys to do the tedious 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 project your way

Quickly access any channel in Tracks or Universe view no matter how huge the session. 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.

Get your hands on important channels

You can work with multiple tracks in Pro Tools | Control. But when you need to focus on a specific track or want more tactile precision a single “attention” channel awaits. 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. And keep an eye on your levels with the 10-segment meter.

Automate tracks with ease

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.

Bring enhanced touch workflows to Pro Tools | S3

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.

EUCON FEATURES

Enhance your existing workflow with EUCON

Why change the tools you love when choosing a control surface? Pro Tools | Dock respects the choices you make. That’s because it features EUCON, a high-speed Ethernet-based technology that enables the hardware to communicate directly with EUCON-enabled applications. That means you can work on a Pro Tools project, then switch to Logic Pro X, Cubase, and other audio software in sequence or in parallel in seconds.

Get deep Pro Tools integration

When paired with Pro Tools, the Dock becomes an extension of your software. Access hundreds of key commands, shortcuts, and UI elements without clicking a mouse. Record, edit, mix, and automate tracks right from the surface. Adjust EQ, dynamics, plug-ins, and other parameters. Get dedicated access to advanced automation modes. And create custom Soft Keys to perform practically any Pro Tools function, or recall layouts to the surface, with a single button press.

Control multiple apps and workstations

With seamless application switching, the surface instantly adapts all controls and displays to your current audio or video software in seconds. You can even lock parts of the surface to one app while using the rest to switch between appsperfect for monitor and transport controls. You can also control multiple workstations running any compatible EUCON-enabled software on your extended network from one surface ideal for multi-workstation workflows and facilities with machine rooms.

Get great flexibility for the future

Avid continues to develop EUCON, making it easy for our partners to introduce new features and functionality to your favorite software titles through updates. In fact, EUCON even supports HUI and Mackie Control protocols, giving you even greater versatility in any studio.
