DAW control like you've never experienced, or even imagined!
The Euphonix MC Mix brings unparalleled speed, resolution, and DAW integration to your studio in a revolutionary slim, ergonomic, design. The MC Mix easily fits into any studio, sitting perfectly between a computer keyboard and screen. Multiple units can be connected to create a larger, integrated control surface. The MC Mix works with Mac only.
The MC Mix lets you effortlessly switch between multiple applications and even workstations at the touch of a button. The touch-sensitive knobs, motorized faders, and high-resolution OLED displays automatically set themselves to whatever application is in the foreground to provide immediate access to multiformat metering, plug-in parameters, EQ curves and much more.
Most importantly, Euphonix has worked closely with the world's leading software developers like Apple, Steinberg, MOTU, Apogee, and others to deeply integrate native support for Euphonix' EuCon control protocol into their DAWs to deliver an unmatched editing and mixing experience.
The MC Mix is designed to work with up to three additional MC Mix units and/or one MC Control to create a larger, integrated system with up to 36 faders. MC Mix and MC Control units can be elegantly clipped together or be situated anywhere on the network.
Significant Mix Features:
¢Controls multiple audio/video applications via Ethernet
¢250X faster and 8X the resolution of MIDI
¢Supports HUI and Mackie Control protocol
¢Slim-line design for easy studio integration and portability
¢Studio Monitor Express software
¢Link up to four MC Mix controllers and/or an MC Control for up to 36 faders
Touch-sensitive Rotary Encoders (8) and Knob Select/On Keys
Offer direct control over everything from panning and gain to editing your most powerful plug-ins and EQ. These knobs can also be pressed to select/deselect and navigate through parameters.
Touch-sensitive Motorized Faders (8)
High-quality ALPS 100mm long throw faders offer accurate and smooth mixing. Touching a fader will automatically select the corresponding track.
Enable direct arming of tracks for recording and/or selection of each track's automation mode
Lock the selected track to a dedicated fader while allowing you to bank through tracks with the remaining faders”perfect for master fader and submix applications.
Function Keys (Shift Keys)
Used in conjunction with other keys on the MC Mix to provide alternate functions.
Punch in and out of recording when footswitch is connected.
Riser Brackets included to increase height and viewing angle.
Knob Set Selector Keys
Quickly assign the rotary encoders to control plug-ins, EQs, panning, signal routing and much more. You can either control the same parameter across all tracks or assign all knobs to one track for easy editing of multiple parameters at once.
Connects the MC Mix to your Mac. Ethernet hub or switch required to connect additional MC Mix unit(s) and MC Control unit or connect to a network.
High-resolution 128 x 64 pixel OLED display provides track name/number, detailed metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), parameter name/value currently being modified by its corresponding rotary encoder, current automation mode, and more.
These keys solo/mute tracks and serve as transport controls when the Function Key is depressed.
Application Change lets you cycle through your applications, while the Workstation Change allows you to switch between multiple workstations.
Scroll through tracks using the Bank buttons (in groups of eight tracks at a time) and Nudge buttons (one track at a time).

This product is greatly Over Rated and Over Priced for what it is. It's good as a control surface for Logic Pro, but the build quality of the product is not up to the cost. The plastic faders come off easily and the channel strip buttons are cheap silicon pads. I purchased both the MC Control and the MC Mix and it becomes obvious that there's a lot of feature OVERLAP between the two, so you feel like you don't need both pieces. It's kind of a weird matchup. I've returned both units to get my $$$$ back. Remember also these are "made in China" products, and it shows in the build quality.
The MC Mix is just about the tightest integration I've ever found with Logic and an Apogee Ensemble. Unfortunately, the MC Mix has a build quality on par with a cheap child's toy. I've owned 4 MC Mixes and ALL 4 have developed massive cracks in the PLASTIC case around the fader mounting screws. 2 went straight back for refunds. 2 developed cracks after the warranty expired. When the cracks get bad enough the case warps and the faders drag on the top of the case rendering the motor function unusable. I disassembled one to super-glue the cracks back together and what I found was SHOCKING. The whole build quality of the product is cheap. Cheap rubber conductive switches, cheap (and I mean CHEAP) plastic frame, cheap pots, cheap faders. I couldn't find a single thing about the unit that looked like it was built to last. The profit margin on this product must be enormous because I've never seen anything built this cheaply at this price point. I switched to the Euphonix from a Yamaha 01v96 and WOW am I surprised. The 01v96 was older technology but it worked and was built out of quality parts and road-rugged all metal construction. The MC Mix is nearly all plastic and really flimsy brittle plastic at that. Integration and software wise the MC Mis is a solid 8.5 (there are still bugs in the software). Just don't breathe on it too heavy because it'll break. Build quality wise it is garbage. Avid/Euphonix should be ashamed of it. They aren't of course because they are about maximizing profits. I've run a professional studio for over 30 years and this this really is a terrible build. I'm not a hater. I completely retooled my studio around the marketing hype of the Euphonix, Apogee, Apple trilogy. Software wise it exceeds expectations. My disappointment stems solely from the utter structural failure of 4 MC Mix units in less than a year.
This thing is amazing. We recently got one for our Studio C post production/music room (studios A and B have Pro Tools HD with Digidesign controllers), running Logic Pro 8. We looked at/tried several others, and this blows everything else away. This feels and responds just as well as the big Digidesign controllers in our other studios costing ten thousand dollars more. And it blows the Mackie and M-Audio controllers away for less money. If you need a small control surface but want professional features and feel, get this for a fraction of what they could be charging.
