Avid Artist Color

With the compact, ergonomic Avid Artist Color, you gain deep hands-on control of all your color correction and grading tasks, with greatest of precision and speed. Whether you use Media Composer, Symphony, Color, Smoke for Mac, STORM, or REDCINE-X, you get the superior feel and control of high-end grading hardware at a fraction of the cost, plus unparalleled access to all software color functions. And with programmable Soft Keys, you can customize the surface to speed your workflow.

With three highly-responsive, optical trackballs and track wheels at your fingertips, you get the same tactile feedback and precision usually found on only high-end color grading solutions. You can even toggle the centre trackball on the fly to work as a mouse, so your hands never have to leave the surface during grading. You can also adjust the control sensitivity directly from the surface to suit your preferences.

Easily view parameter names and values on the six 128 x 64-pixel OLED displays as you make changes with the trackballs, track wheels, and six encoders. These displays also show you room or view names when in NAV Mode.

Play, stop, go forward or backward, jump to the next clip or previous clip, and more using dedicated transport controls that provide effortless project navigation. You can also use the Soft Keys to trigger additional transport and navigation functions for even greater flexibility in editing and navigating your project.

Because Artist Series controllers are modular, you can combine them in a variety of configurations to suit your workflow. Customize your Artist Series system with up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color for total flexibility—up to 36 faders total. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surface—or use them separately—as each has its own Ethernet connection.
