MC Transport Overview
MC Transport is loaded with power features to speed up and enhance your creativity with any media application. From its ultra-high resolution optical jog wheel and shuttle ring to ergonomic transport controls, programmable Soft Keys and integrated numeric key pad, MC Transport provides you with one-handed access to almost every facet of your project for an unmatched editing experience.
Effortlessly switch between multiple applications and workstations at the touch of a button. The MC Transport automatically detects which application is in the foreground and sets all controls to match.
Most importantly, software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU and others have worked closely to integrate native support for Euphonix' EuCon control protocol into their media applications to deliver an unmatched editing experience.
Time Code Display
Assignable Soft Keys (6)
Professional, high-resolution Jog Wheel and Shuttle Ring
Function Keys (Shift Keys)
Multiple Applications & Multiple Workstations
There is a dedicated button on MC Transport that allows you to cycle through applications and switch workstations.
MC Transport works with any application and the surface changes to match the application in focus. For applications that do not support EuCon, HUI or Mackie control, such as Photoshop and iTunes, the 6 Soft Keys (as well as the transport/numeric keys used in conjunction with the Function Key) can be used to trigger keyboard shortcuts and macro commands.
For EuCon, HUI or Mackie Control applications the jog wheel and shuttle ring can be used to move around the project. This is in addition to the use of soft keys.
MC Transport can connect to multiple workstations on the network that have the EuCon Client application installed. No other controller offers this powerful feature.
Jog Wheel, Shuttle Ring, Transport Controls and Numeric Keys
MC Transport's ergonomic controls and layout offer you comprehensive, one-handed navigation of all your media projects with unmatched tactile feedback.
Jog Wheel - The weighted, optically encoded jog wheel provides you with professional, ultra-high resolution navigation of your timeline, and can be instantly assigned to control a host of other parameters like zooming horizontally/vertically, trimming clip head and tail, setting clip gain, cross fading, etc. by simply pressing the appropriate Soft Key.
Shuttle Ring - MC Transport's optically encoded shuttle ring features a revolutionary, spring-loaded design with rubberized surface for effortless one-handed operation. Shuttle ring response can be customized for each of your favorite media applications, and as with the jog wheel, the functionality can be switched on the fly via the programmable Soft Keys to match your preferred workflow.
Transport/Navigation Controls - MC Transport offers you seven programmable transport/navigation keys with multi-color status LEDs. These controls automatically switch to match whatever application is in focus and can be customized to suit your workflow. When used in conjunction with the Function Key (shift), these transport controls serve as Soft Keys that can be programmed with additional navigation and editing functions.
Numeric Keypad - MC Transport provides you with an integrated numeric keypad that offers easy entry of locate operations like time code and marker navigation, as well as quick parameter editing. Like the transport controls, all 16 numeric keys also function as programmable Soft Keys when used in conjunction with the Function Key.
