Unified Workstation Installer

Continuing the merge of the different EUCON teams and Products that has already shown great improvements in efficiency, reliability and feature commonality during 2017. EUCON 2018.3 (also referenced as “v18.3”) introduces a single streamlined Unified Workstation Installer that prevents incompatible versions, stale preference files and several other issues. This release now follows the new Avid versioning of year and month (in the case of this release, “2018” for year and “.3” for the month of release). This new versioning scheme matches the versioning for Pro Tools and other Avid software.



iPad Pro Tools | Control App on S6

S6 customers can now connect and use the iPad Control App with S6. Using the Pro Tools | Control app has many uses when used in conjunction with S6, from providing an extra set of Softkeys, to offering Transport Control and remote recording and monitor cue mixing. The new unified installer make setup a breeze.



Multiple DAW Softkey Macros for S6

If you work with multiple DAW’s connected to your S6, then you will find the new Multi DAW Softkey Macros a major workflow enhancement. Any combinations of commands and feedback can be sent to all your connected DAW’s simultaneously. Matching out of Automation across multiple DAWs is now possible. For example, you could match out on DAW’s 1 to 3, punch out of record on DAW 4, and save on all four DAW’s with a single Softkey press.

EUCON 2018.3 is available now for download. To install the EUCON 2018.3 software update on S6, your console needs to be on a current Avid Support Plan. Your console came with 1 year of Avid Advantage ExpertPlus support with Hardware Coverage so please check your support plan expiration date.
