Euphonix MC - PT compatibility

Hi there, quick questions...
- can anyone confirm me if the old silver Euphonix MC Mix units are flawlessly compatible with the newest versions of Pro Tools and whether they are just as featured as the newest "black face" (Avid branded) Artist Mix?

- Also, should one notice any difference/trouble going from a black face to an older silver face and vice-versa?

- lastly, can black and silvers be arranged together? (Like an MC Mix + Artist Control - or just MC Mix + Artist Mix)

Any input, of any kind, would be appreciated!!

thanks

AFAIK, the silver Euphonix MC Mix hardware is exactly the same as the new black Avid Artist Mix. With the MC Control there was a V1 and V2 but I don't think there was any updates to the hardware on the Mix.

I don't believe there's any issue combining Euphonix silver units and Avid Artist units but you'll probably have to make sure they have the latest (or at least the same) firmware on all of them.

I'm using 2 x Euphonix MC Mix with Pro Tools 10/11. The firmware has been updated and they both say "Avid" on the scribble strips when they boot up.

Colliderman is correct. Adding to what he said the changes from V1 to V2 on the old Euphonix units were basically cosmetic and mechanical, like a better scroll wheel (it's black on MC Control v2), slightly less crappier LCR (still crap anyway) and a slightly different tone of black paint.

BTW, I have a 1st generation MC Control V1 running with PT 12.4 in front of me right now.

Cheers

thank you very much
That's what I wanted to know... I saw the new driver/firmware installers say "Avid artist mix" no Euphonix explicit compatibility...that makes you wonder on the software side either. But now it is clear! thanks, and wish you a nice 2016!!!

The Units still say EUPHONIX when booted.

You need to update the firmware. Download latest Eucon and install. Then run Eucontrol, in the Surfaces tab you click on each
one in the my surfaces window on the right and then click the update firmware box below the window

Hi,

I updated firmware and driver. No need now because I will remain working with PT 10.
Thanks.
