When it comes to color grading, using a mouse can leave you seeing red—literally.

And with programmable Soft Keys, you can customize the surface to speed your workflow.
Work with your favorite software.

Artist Color features EUCON (Extended User Control), a high-speed open control protocol that has been adopted by many of the world’s leading software developers. With it, you can take control over almost all grading functions of EUCON-enabled applications such as Apple Color, Autodesk Smoke, DaVinci Resolve, RED REDCINE-X, The Foundry STORM, and others. You gain a tightly connected experience in which the control surface acts and feels like a physical extension of your software.

Product Highlights

Full color control in the palm of your hand.

Get detailed tactile control over your picture’s hue, saturation, and brightness using the three optical trackballs. Use the left trackball to adjust color in the shadows, the middle one to fine-tune midtones, and the right one to tweak the highlights. And with the optical trackwheels that surround each trackball, you can control contrast and vignettes. You can also use the right trackwheel to jog through your project.

Fine tune adjustments with a touch.

With the six touch-sensitive click-and-turn Soft Knobs and six high-resolution OLED displays, you can navigate to a room, clear color parameters, and adjust the master lift, gain, and gamma. Simply press any knob to select a parameter and then give it a twist to adjust. You can also assign and trigger frequently performed tasks at the press of a button with nine programmable Soft Keys.

Speed up navigation and editing.

With dedicated transport keys—in conjunction with the right trackwheel, which does jogging double-duty—you can navigate large projects quickly. Play, forward play, reverse play, and stop playback, or jump to the next or previous clip. And greatly speed up color editing tasks with four pairs of dedicated Copy/Paste Grade keys, enabling you to copy the color settings of a desirable clip and paste it across other clips in your timeline.

Work with what you want.

You have a lot of choices when it comes to the video tools you use. So why not use a control surface that respects the choices you make? All Artist Series control surfaces do. That’s because they feature EUCON, a high-speed Ethernet-based technology that enables the hardware to communicate directly with any EUCON-enabled application—and vice-versa. And because they’re application-aware, you can switch from a project in Media Composer to Smoke, Baselight, DaVinci Resolve, and other video software in seconds.
