Euphonix Latest EuCon 1.3 Software at AES Show

Euphonix, announced
EuCon version 1.3 for the Euphonix MC and System 5-MC controllers. This newly released version of software offers increased support for more DAWs,
and includes the new Studio Monitor Pro application for professional surround
monitoring for film dubbing applications.

EuCon is a
high-speed control protocol that connects Euphonix control surfaces, such as
the MC, System 5-MC and System 5, to multiple networked DAWs and video
applications via Ethernet. EuCon is 250 times faster and has 8 times the
resolution of
MIDI and allows Euphonix control
surfaces to access multiple DAWs over a network. Applications such as
Steinberg’s Nuendo, Apple’s Logic Studio and Merging’s Pyramix include direct
EuCon support, while applications such as Pro Tools and Final Cut Studio are
controlled via high-speed HUI and Mackie Control Universal protocols.

The new
EuCon 1.3 includes support for the recently released Nuendo 4 that adds major
automation features to this EuCon enabled application. Dedicated support for
Digital Performer and Sony Vegas has been included in EuCon 1.3 using
high-speed Mackie Control emulation over Ethernet. PC users will be pleased to
note that Mackie Control Universal protocol is now supported on both Mac OSX
and Windows XP platforms.

Monitor Pro surround monitoring application is now available as an paid option
for MC and System 5-MC controllers which currently ships with the Express
version. Studio Monitor Pro is a complete multi-format monitoring software
application for Mac OSX or Windows XP that connects audio from applications and
hardware I/O to dedicated hardware outputs used as monitor feeds. The software
emulates a professional monitor matrix found in mixing consoles, such as the
Euphonix System 5, and allows the MC and System 5-MC control surface monitor
sections to control monitor feeds and sources. Studio Monitor Pro adds extra
professional features to Studio Monitor Express and is designed for use in film
dubbing environments. Additional features include 7.1 formats, up to 48
external inputs, twin source inputs for PEC/Direct monitoring, 4 talkback
channels, user configurable source layouts such as a L R Ls Rs C B, and a
monitor insert for Dolby encoders.

Kloiber, Euphonix CEO, was very enthusiastic about the new version of EuCon,
“This is a major EuCon upgrade that takes DAW and control surface integration
to a new level. Nuendo 4 adds major new automation features to rival any other
DAW out there and EuCon 1.3 lets our users tap into this new power. We have
spent the last five years solidifying the principles of EuCon control and now
it is time to start adapting EuCon to new partner products such as Digital
Performer and Sony Vegas. Studio Monitor Pro now completes our design work on
this unique software application that adds complete professional monitoring to
all our products – it’s an exciting time for us, this is the start of something
really big.”

Eucon 1.3
is free of charge to all MC and System 5-MC customers and is available to
download from the Euphonix website. Studio Monitor Pro trail version is
included in the package and can be activated by purchasing an iLok key from
Euphonix distributors.
