Avid Pro Tools C|24 Control Surface
Take control of Pro Tools
Speed up your Pro Tools and Pro Tools | HD recording, editing, and mixing tasks. With the sleek and stylish 24-channel C|24 control surface, you get direct hands-on control over almost every software function. Extend your studio with an array of high-quality analog inputs and a 5.1 analog monitor section to use with your Pro Tools audio interface. And because the hardware tightly integrates with your DAW, you get an incredibly powerful and richly featured surface designed exclusively for Pro Tools users.
Get easy access to recording, editing, routing, and mixing functions in Pro Tools through 24 banking channel strips. Control levels, pan, EQ, dynamics, plug-in settings, and more using the 24 touch-sensitive, motorized faders and 24 multi-function encoders. Quickly mute, solo, record-enable, select, insert, and automate tracks using dedicated switches on each strip. And view channel names, parameter settings, and more through two rows of easy-to-read LED displays.
Navigate and edit projects quickly.
With the fully featured transport section, you can work through project tasks quickly. Record and play back tracks with dedicated transport controls. Target a specific location and edit clips with precision using the scrub/shuttle wheel. Audition various parts of an audio edit selection. Toggle loop playback, loop recording, and QuickPunch. Undo what you just did. And much more.
Keep an eye on your levels.
The meter bridge provides more than just 24 graphs of visual feedback for your track levels. It also offers six output meters for monitoring stereo or up to 5.1 surround levels (Pro Tools | HD only). View timecode, bars|beats, and other time scale formats on the main counter display. And with a talkback mic integrated directly into the meter bridge, simply press a button to open communication between the control room and live room.
Plug in and mix.
C24 can be used beyond Pro Tools. You can also use it as an analog line submixer. Connect mics, instruments, and other analog studio gear to the eight built-in stereo inputs and a stereo output (all through DB-25 connections). You can then route the inputs to your Pro Tools audio interface for recording or directly to the C|24 monitoring section for standalone line mixer operation, with full talkback and monitor sections.
Get total hands-on control
Gain fast access to Pro Tools recording, editing, routing, and mixing functions right from the surface. Navigate projects quickly through 24 banking channel strips. Take precision control of levels and other settings using the 24 motorized faders and 24 rotary encoders. Plus, get access to edit commands, windows management controls, and customizable Soft Keys to help accelerate your unique workflow.
Accelerate your mix
With its intuitive, ergonomic design, C|24 will greatly boost your Pro Tools efficiency. Navigate to any part of your project using the expanded transport section. Scrub through audio, edit clips, and shuttle through sessions quickly using the jog/shuttle wheel. Save and recall Windows Configurations and Memory Locations. Switch encoder functions to the faders using Flip mode. And view absolute time, SMPTE, Feet/Frames, and Bars/Beats on the LED timecode display.
Monitor in 5.1 surround
The monitoring section in C|24 provides many of the same features found on Avid’s ICON consoles. Work with 5.1, LCRS, and stereo presets for easy integration with Pro Tools. Check your levels with stereo and surround sound output metering. Get trimmable inputs and outputs, talkback latching, and Auto Talkback modes. And easily set up two-way communication for recording sessions using the built-in talkback mic and remote talkback and listenback inputs.
Connect mics and more
C|24 isn’t just about mixing tracks. You can connect mics, instruments, and other gear for recording and submixing. Get great sonic clarity through 16 high-quality, low-noise mic preamps—each with a high-pass filter and variable input gain. When used with an audio interface, C|24 becomes your creative hub for recording. Or use it as an 8-channel stereo line submixer by routing signals from outboard instruments and other gear directly to the monitor section.
Create big mixes in small spaces
Sporting a sleek, industrial design, C|24 fits right into any music or post-production studio. The ergonomic surface occupies a small footprint, while its low-profile meterbridge allows for better placement of your computer monitor and speakers. It also features an intelligent switch design with bold graphics, making the layout easy to memorize and navigate. And the bright displays provide instant visual feedback of channel names, parameter settings, and more.
